    Post [Publisher] Speaking Volumes LLC

    I did a search of the forums and didn't find this one listed. Anyone have any positives or negatives?

    Appears to be a variety of different media with a focus on ebooks, but they also mentioned print.

    Specialize in audio books, actually, but are growing into ebooks and print. Looks like authors are using them to publish their OoP back lists (e.g., Pronzini).

    They started out with audiobooks, as CaoPaux indicated, re-releasing a lot of out of print/audio titles at first. I've purchased a few of their audiobooks. They do a decent job with those, but I cannot speak to any print or ebooks, or working with them as a writer/author.

    yeah, what peaked my interest was that they have been working towards both print and ebooks

    So they are working towards what a lot of publishers are already doing? I am not sure that I see the appeal unless they make very good sales which a top Amazon rank of #866,409 (Kindle #221,568) doesn't really suggest.

    Anyone know anything knew about this publisher? They've appeared on my radar (aka Facebook, yeah, I'm lame) and I'm always interested in checking out new pubs.
    Yes, I'm a writer. No, I don't want to write your memoir for you.

    Honestly, never heard of them before. Where did you find them? Have you ever read a book they've published?

    If you check the B, R, &BC index, you'll see we've discussed hundreds of publishers and more get founded (and go belly up, or change ownership, or change their names) every day. While we have a wide and varied membership, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that no one has encountered this publisher before.

    Is there something specific you'd like to know about them? Research can be done if we know what to look for.

    I merely wanted to hear of any experiences anyone has had with them, positive or negative.
