The Amazon-owned digital audiobooks site Audible.com is launching a new program, “Audible Author Services,” that pays audiobook authors $1 per sale through Audible.com, Audible.co.uk, and iTunes, out of a $20 million fund. The audiobook publishers do not receive any of the funds.
I have been waiting for Bezos to bring Audible.com to Amazon’s main platform. Instead he is bringing more Amazon to Audible. I can see the subject line of the email now… “More Darwin”.
