Audio Books: Bringing Your Books to Life

 

Presented by Kylie Stewart

 

Bring your books to life by putting them into audio format! Demand for audio books is growing. In this class we will look at the options you will have as a rights holder, different platforms you can utilize as a rights holder, and how to choose the right voices for your books. We will also look at pricing, what to do if you want to read your own book, and a few audio engineering platforms you can use right now.

Kylie Stewart has been writing short stories and books all her life. A native of Hammond, New York, Kylie grew up on the St. Lawrence River dreaming of big things. She has a Master’s of Science in Equine Business from Middle Tennessee State University, which is why there are so many horses in her books. After working in the Kentucky Race Horse Industry, she moved back to Tennessee to pursue writing.
Kylie is also an audio narrator who has read for over 100 titles and is an APA member.
Kylie was influenced by her Scottish heritage to become an independent British history buff. She has a small library dedicated to Tudor history and is a lover of the Arthurian legends. She also has an intense love of the supernatural, theological, paranormal, and mythological worlds. She is a member of RWA.
Kylie lives in Dallas, TX with her husband and fellow voice actor Eric Rolon, and their two cats, Asuka and Haru.
