Why Don’t I Sell My Audiobooks on Audible?

I don’t sell my audiobooks through online retailers like Audible because their contracts favor the particular retailer financially more than the author. They also give me very little control. I sell my audiobooks through an app to ensure that I can keep doing what I love, set my own prices, and give discounts to my fans. This also means a cheaper price too! The app I use is completely secure, easy to use, and gives readers the same functionality as Audible with the ability to listen through desktop or mobile device.

Book Reviews

Waiting in the Night is a completely engrossing book with each chapter bringing to life a winding road of surprises. Timothy Moonlight captivates with a compelling plot and storyline with diverse characters of complex forces. Audio narrator, Brian Callanan, narrates with fervor and engages each character dynamically.


I really enjoyed Waiting in the Night. There were twist and turns. It kept me reading to see how this was all going to come together. The ending was not what I saw coming. From someone who reads a lot of mysteries it was enjoyable to have to read to the end before I found out the conclusion. Well put together.


If that title doesn't immediately elicit a frisson of fear, then get ready: WAITING IN THE NIGHT is a non-stop roller coaster of tragedy and terror, and just about every chapter is hair-raisingly chilling! I could not put it aside, racing through with heart in throat and eyes wide as saucers. This author can WRITE! He swept me away with horror and continuing jump scares. Although I don't often recommend converting fiction to film, WAITING IN THE NIGHT would be a fantastic terrifying high-class horror film. I reviewed a digital copy generously provided by the author via Hidden Gems Books at no cost, obligation, or remuneration. I opted to review this title.


The story was amazing. The development of the storyline and the characters were excellent. Plot twists kept me wanting to listen more and more and more. I would recommend this book to anyone.


A young family purchases their dream home in a small Texas town. However, all is not well. A horrible crime had been committed on the site where the home now stands, and evil is seeking to return to its site of origin. Meanwhile, in other parts of the country, people are being slowly but surely drawn to Texas to confront their deepest fears and nightmares. The characters in this story are realistic and their stories are compelling. This book has just the right amount of suspense to keep you turning the pages. I highly recommend this book to all fans of horror and suspense.
