IWOC Meeting | Sell More Books: Turn Yours Into an Audiobook!

  • 08 May 2018
  • 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Gratz Center (Room 4F), 126 E. Chestnut Street, Chicago


Registration is closed
Whether yours is a novel, biography, memoir, children's book, technical manual or any other kind of page turner, you'll want to lend an ear at IWOC's May meeting and hear how to leverage audiobooks' immense promise for your own gain.

Audiobooks are a multi-billion business on pace to become bigger than print books. IWOC's May meeting is all about how to grab a piece of that growing pie. Learn about audiobooks' potential from actor, writer, director and audiobook expert Kevin Theis, founder of Fort Raphael Publishing Co. -- Chicago's only full-service audiobook company. “Making your book available as an audiobook is another way of selling more copies, marketing it to a larger audience, and generating greater interest in what you've created,” Kevin says.

Networking, with snacks and beverages, begins at 5:00 p.m., followed by the program at 6:00 p.m.

The meeting is free for IWOC members. Non-members pay $10 with online preregistration/payment or $15 at the door.

All attendees are welcome to join us for a buy-your-own dinner at a nearby restaurant after the meeting.
