  1. Excellent advice Tom. I just completed a similar Non Fiction audiobook with the first time Author as the proofer and many of the items on your checklist came up.

    I wisely sent some audio in the beginning to establish tone and pacing.

    He was great to work with and I pushed for pronunciations many of which were complicated and he didn’t have them, so he worked hard for this production.
    Took much longer to finish though. Author lesson learned. For me, get those pronunciations before starting.
    Your checklist is a must have!

  2. Wow, nice article. I had a question about epigraphs; in the book I wrote (In the Wake of the Willows), each chapter starts with one or two epigraphs from a 19th century naturalist (such as Emily Dickinson). Should these be included in the audio version of the book?

    As the author, that’s up to you. Many chapters start with quotes and more often than not I’m asked to narrate them. Hope that helps!
