Audiobook production

Audiobook production is a great way to turn your written book into a recorded narrated audiobook.

With audiobook production you have a couple of options to consider, you can either record the audiobook yourself and give it a more personal voice, or have the production recorded with your chosen voice over or actor.

Either way, there’s many benefits to recording the production yourself or with an actor/voice over.

As we’re based in Wales, it’s important to say that we have access to a variety of both Welsh voice actors and Welsh speaking voice actors. 

Ultimately, it all comes down to your budget and what you personally want the audiobook to sound like.

Listed below is some of the frequently asked questions people have when producing an audiobook with an independent producer like ourselves. See below.

Why use us for your Audiobook production?

If you’re looking for an audiobook production recording, then you’ve come to the right place. We have over 20 years experience in working for the biggest brands in radio and have produced many thousands of hours of audio for independent clients as well as programmes for the BBC.


We have a professional recording studio with an independent (sound proofed) voice-over booth. Our studio also includes ISDN, Skype, Source Connect Pro and a Telephone Patch for recording voice overs and actors at other locations across the globe.

Do you help with distribution?

Yes, but even self-published authors use their own distribution channels now. The main one is ACX which is owned and ran by Audible who have around a 40% share of the marketplace.

WOULD A TOP Actor Split The Royalties?

Yes, but not all of them. The disclaimer here is that they don’t usually take a punt on an unknown author and they usually want a small fee for the recording time anyway. But, it’s not un-common to do a deal.

Are you interested in Splitting ROyalties?

Yes, but once again the disclaimer here is that we don’t usually take a punt on an unknown author and we usually request a small fee for our time in recording the production. That said, we’re very happy to review the options.

How is the audiobook provided?

Whether you require the audio in just it’s raw form only or fully edited and produced, we can deliver the audio in any file format you require. Fully mastered onto a CD or emailed as a download link only.

What voice overs/Actors are available?

We have a good working relationship with many of the world’s top voice agents and can source any voice or actor to read your book, be it male or female. Plus, if you’ve had your book translated into another language, we can also source world voices too.

What is the cost of this service?

We can either charge you our hourly rate until the job is finished. Or, we can agree a set price based on your budget. It’s entirely up to you.

Everything we do, we do with love, commitment and passion. The result is a production that meets all your expectations. But hopefully exceeds them.
