Publisher Pages

I've been working on some publisher pages recently and I felt compelled tonight to write my own meager thoughts on a few of the companies I've helped profile.

Sadly these publishers mentioned are out of business.

First I'll talk about Airplay. These guys may not have much and yes, there is some trash fiction in the mix, but when they're good, they're really good. The Jamaica Kincaid books, Poetry selection and Shakespeare titles are all top notch and genuinely unique. There were only 19 titles currently listed on their page, but over half were of high quality and a proceed of the sales go to charity. Pretty cool way of working guys. I give you a thumbs up.

Oh but wait, there's the best of the best of the publishers I've recently encountered. The winner of my personal best publisher of the week is Audio Scholar. I couldn't believe the titles I was going through with them. Everything had something of value, from Gandhi's biography to Carl Sagan's essays; it was all too much to handle! I wanted to listen to every one. If you want to get an idea of their topic range, I think it skews more on the end of science-based books, but there are a few titles devoted to people with more spiritual leanings. I think science is a good niche to take on since there are ALOT of spiritual audio book vendors out there but not many for more... left brain listeners out there.

Check out the links, there's alot of things in there that I'm sure you've never seen on audio before. At least it was new to me!
