DIY Audiobook


Your words . . . your voice . . . your audiobook.

Trafford can get your book on board with the growing demand for audiobooks. According to a report by Good e-Reader in December 2016, the global audiobook industry is currently evaluated at $3.5 billion. The United States is currently the largest single market with $1.8 billion in audio sales in 2016, constituting a 31% increase from 2015. In short, it is a rapidly increasing format for readers to enjoy a book!

Plus, audiobook listeners get to experience your book the way it was meant to be told—in your voice. Who better to read your story than you, the one person who knows exactly how each word of your book is supposed to sound? Transform your book into an audiobook, and give people a chance to enjoy your book on the go.
