Coffee with Colleagues, What Does an Editor Do?, Writing Tips and Tricks

Coffee with Colleagues: Should I record an audiobook of my novel?

One of the best parts of working in book publishing is that some of the most gifted, talented, fun and just generally great people form the majority of the workforce. We are all united by the love of the written word, but each person has such a wide variety of skills and knowledge that even if you’ve worked with someone for years, they’ll still surprise you with a little nugget of wisdom when you least expect it.

However, now that the whole world has effectively moved to working from home, I thought it would be lovely to reach out to the publishing community and get to know some of my colleagues in the industry a little more – albeit over a Zoom chat, rather than the lunches and coffees that publishing professionals are known for.

For today’s chat, I decided to venture into the realm of something a little different and record our interview as a video – can’t have an audiobook interview without audio?! – so check out the video below to hear myself in conversation with Elliott Frisby of Monkeynut Audiobooks and Sound discussing the the tips and tricks you need to know if you’re considering producing an audio version of your book.

How to Publish an Audiobook
with Elliott Frisby, Monkeynut Audiobooks and Sound

Elliott Frisby has worked in the music and audio industry for over twenty years, working with the likes of Dame Shirley Bassie and Robin Gibb, and is recognised as a one of the top audiobook producers in the UK, most recently completing post-production for England Football Manager Gareth Southgate’s Anything is Possible

Elliott’s passion and commitment to quality audio led him to launch Monkeynut Audiobooks & Sound in 2015. Renowned for their exceptionally high standards, Monkeynut Audiobooks create audio that keeps people listening, working with world-leading publishers such as HarperCollins, Penguin Random House, Bonnier and Lion Hudson as well as upcoming and established authors and scriptwriters to produce audiobooks for professional release.

Aside from being a huge fan of fiction and children’s books, Elliott loves working with accomplished individuals who want to write a book and give back to society by sharing their stories and expertise. His wealth of expertise and knowledge has helped many authors and artist reach their audio potential. Elliott can help you complete the book, find genre-specific quality narrators, record and produce the sound, edit each page, and publish across all the major platforms including Audible and iTunes.

(Please forgive my nerves to begin with – was a bit in awe of Elliot’s wisdom!)

To find out more about publishing your audiobook, get in touch with Elliott and his talented team at Monkeynut AudioBooks and Sound, and they’d be delighted to help you begin your audio journey!
