What's included in your BookBaby
Audiobooks package:

Affordable and easy to create

Traditional audiobooks are recorded by human narrators. They're expensive and often take weeks or months to complete a first audio proof. BookBaby audiobooks are an entirely new and inexpensive process designed to meet the needs of self-published authors.

With just a few clicks, indie authors can upload their digital manuscript and select a voice – either male or female – in one of the 75 languages offered by BookBaby. You'll receive audio files to review and approve within just a few days. Plus, you retain creative control through every step of the process.

How it works
Make 75% royalties from every Bookshop™ sale
Review & approve your proofs
Choose your language and narrator voice
Upload your manuscript in word docs (.docx) or epub (.epub) format

Is it AI or human? You can’t tell the difference

Computer voices – aka "Text-to-Speech" – were once easy to distinguish from human voices: robotic, monotonous, and lifeless. But those days are over.

BookBaby has partnered with Speechki and its innovative technology that creates natural-sounding, realistic voices. Years of research and work have produced a program capable of mimicking human-like speech that generates full-length, near-perfect audio narrations–you can even choose different accents! The result is a seamless and pleasant listening experience for every audiobook consumer. Listen for yourself – check out the voice samples below.

With the superior quality of BookBaby’s printing which I am also extremely impressed with and the Audiobook outcome, I couldn’t be more satisfied. Thank you so much & now I just hope to sell copies in the future.”

“What a great experience producing my FIRST audio book through BookBaby utilizing their AI program. SO COOL! I got to pick a voice from so many options. It is amazing how the process is done. It was easy and fast. I only had to make a few edits on some pronunciations. I would highly recommend.”
Edd Jordan
“I was very excited when BookBaby added the Audiobook option as an additional outlet for my first book, Relic Rupture. With dozens of voices to choose from, I found the one that represented my brand in a clear and accurate manner. After two proofreads for minor inflections and corrections, I had a quality product that I was proud to put my name on. I look forward to publishing my second book, Relic Rapture in the Audiobook format soon!”
