But as an author, how can you make the best of the opportunity? Most writers haven't trained in radio, podcasting, scriptwriting or other writing forms that prioritise the spoken word over the written word. Narration and voiceover are a kind of performance, and book scripts need to be edited with audio writing techniques in mind, so that voiceover artists can deliver their very best. Hence this practical guide book. I'm a scriptwriter, spoken word performer and ex BBC radio journalist, and I teach dramatic writing at a UK university. My experience is in writing for the ear, and I've pulled everything I've learned together here, including audio-friendly concepts such as  flow attunement landing context-first performability language spans discourse markers all taken from the different writing worlds of radio news, spoken word, oral storytelling, rhetoric, and stage and radio drama.  There’s advice for both fiction and non-fiction authors, and some technical studio tips for writers on the indie author path wanting to record their own audio books. This is perfect for novelists non-fiction authors publishing professionals podcasters voiceover artists audiobook narrators oral historians spoken word performers radio writers storytellers and anyone inspired by the audiobook boom and the delights of the spoken word!  Set yourself up for audiobook success with Writing for Audiobooks: Audio-First for Flow & Impact.
