What can we do for you?

Readers are listening… but are they listening to your books?

Audiobooks have been the fastest-growing segment of the publishing industry for more than a dozen years.

 

While the number of listeners and the number of books being listened to grows year over year, it can be hard to be heard above the din.

Whether it's a casting or distribution consult, managing advance listening copies or a full-on social media promotional tour, our carefully curated team of reviewers and influencers is passionate about helping authors raise the volume on their audiobooks.

Whatever stage you're on in your audiobook production journey, we can work with you to create a marketing plan to fit your needs.

“Audiobook promotion (well, any promotion, let's be honest) can be so overwhelming, but Karen does a fantastic job of breaking it down so you can make things happen. It's so great to have a resource in this area and I plan to use Karen again and again!”

- NY Times and USA Today best-selling author Erin Nicholas

“Karen knows the audiobook industry inside and out. I couldn’t figure out how to gain any traction, but Karen came up with an organized, creative plan to promote my book. I was blown away with the results and can’t wait to use Home Cooked Books for my next release.”

- Indie author Jill Brashear

“Karen is the BEST! She is communicative, forthcoming and supremely organized. Her knowledge of the audiobook industry goes deep and her connections with audio lovers are strong. As someone juggling careers as both an author and a full-time narrator, my plate is quite full, so it gave me enormous peace of mind  knowing Karen was steering the marketing ship of my last audio release... and it was the best one yet! I plan on partnering with Home Cooked Books again and again!” 

- Erin Mallon, indie author, playwright and audiobook narrator 

"Home Cooked Books gave my audio release the boost it needed. Karen is timely and professional. She knows the audiobook world and has a wide array of connections. 10/10 would use her services again!"

- Traditionally published author Kelly Siskind

We seek to represent only fully professional audiobook productions narrated by humans and reserve the right to turn down any author for a promotional tour. Our reviewers and influencers are not paid but are passionate audiobook listeners. We cannot guarantee positive reviews or a certain number of reviews. We do, however, require that specific mentions of the narrator’s performance and overall audiobook production are included in reviews. Reviewers who accept download codes without posting reviews are removed from our roster.
