    [Audio pub] Tantor Media

    I've been approached by www.tantor.com, interested in converting my WW2 novels into audio books. No details yet of how they work or what they are offering, but I found a thread in Kboards where the comments all suggested this is a legit company. One author spoke about "earning out her advance", which sounds promising.

    Anyone have any info they'd like to share?

    When we (my agent and I) sold my books to Berkley, we kept the audio rights, and sold those to Tantor. They're a very legit audio book producer (the Big 5 also contract to them). Yes, I received an advance. I was consulted on their selection of a voice actor and on the covers, but other than that, It's been hands off.

    People seem to like the audio books, though! And they're selling.

    I love Tantor's audio books. Very good company. Found in many libraries here in the Mid Atlantic states.

    Yeah, Tantor is super legit. I don't remember what audiobook of theirs I listened to, but I know I did. It might have been The Girl with All The Gifts.

    Tantor published one of my books into audio. I received an advance and sales have been good. They audio pub the likes of Penguin books and other books from very reputable publishers.
