Backstory – How the ABR Audiobook Listeners Awards came to be
Everyone in the audiobook industry knows about, or at least is familiar with, the Audio Publisher Association’s annual award called the Audies. I am a huge proponent of the award and the clout that comes with it. However, I have noticed and realized that it is very difficult for independently published and those published by the small publishing houses to get the recognition that they deserve. As some of the best audiobooks I have listened to have been from this group.
This is how these awards came to be. I wanted to do my part to get the Indies the recognition that they deserve.
