"Using Findaway Voices to distribute my audiobooks allows me to set my own prices and offer discounted audiobooks to readers. As an indie author, writing and publishing a book can be accomplished alone, but making that book available to the world and letting readers know about it is a joint effort. So my advice to other writers is to make sure you have the right players on your team."
