Wish I had this book 6 months ago

I wish I had listened to this book back in January when I started recording my audiobook. It would have saved me a lot of headache and given me helpful tips to get my audio approved by ACX BEFORE my computer crashed and I have to re-record everything. Helpful and actionable tips by Renee, who may not be an expert, but she plays one on tv and that good enough for me 😄

A good primer for Indies and newbies.

This has good info for the beginner. I went through a similar process as the author. I learned a couple new things I hadn't come across before so it was worth the price.

Enlightening and Informative

As someone who has often thought about doing their own audiobook, I came across this by accident and decided to give it a chance. I liked what the author had to say, and enjoyed her humour along the way. I will definitely give this a second listen.

very informative and brief

i like that this book covers a lot of useful information with lots of resource links but is concise and easily accessible - not filled with salesy fluff
