  1. If all these suggestions are followed it will still be “a drop in the bucket.”
    I have,for several months provided a link to Audiobook samples. A total of three samples (6min each) on Soundcloud.com. and I can .see no benefit.
    Of course you never know for sure except for the “likes” on the page.
    -and they are very small. -And I will put my audiobook up against anyone
    who want’s to compare.-writing and narration.

    I would like to hear more about audiobooks competing with hard back print
    instead of paperback. Volume sales is what we need
    .
