I don't even know how to say thank you for Verity Audio for being with me over these last three days. My name is Dr. Sheri Keffer and I'm a first time author. I'm grateful for their care, excellence and expertise in walking through every page of my manuscript. I highly recommend them for anyone who is thinking about doing an audio version of their book.

Jen Bricker, New York Times Bestselling Author


I had SUCH a wonderful experience recording the audio version of my book “Everything Is Possible” at Verity Audio Studio!  I felt so at home & cozy! An extremely welcoming environment with impeccable hospitality!  And that’s not even mentioning the stellar quality of the audio, which is, well, stellar!! Thank you very much for bringing my book to life with my voice! Much love!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to get my book in audio?
Check out our comprehensive guide that walks you through "How to get your audiobook published"
Should I read my own book?
We have a lot of authors asking us about this. That is why we put together this helpful resource to help you navigate that question.
Will my book work in audio?
In all likelihood, yes. We are working on a resource currently to answer this question in detail. In the meantime, reach out to our team to get some one-on-one advice.
I don’t want to come to San Diego.
Our full service option allows us to record narrators in studios all over the country as well as our studio in San Diego. If you choose to record close to home, contact us to discuss our editing and mastering services.
What will it cost?
The cost to produce an audiobook depends on a number of factors including who is narrating, which studio is used, how long the books is and the type of content. We typically can turn a quote around in 24-48 hours. Contact us to get a ballpark estimate of what it would cost to produce your book.
How much will my audiobook sell?
Although it’s difficult to estimate how many copies an audiobook will sell, it’s important to keep in mind that having an audio version of your book is becoming more and more important.

  • Audio is the fastest growing segment of the publishing industry. Some estimate that the audiobook industry is growing by 30% a year!
  • Studies show that 5-20% of your readers prefer audiobooks first above other formats (print & “e”)
  • A survey from the Audiobook Publishers Association found that a large percentage of people are listening a lot.

  • 32% listen to 5-10+ books a year. 13% listen to over 10 books a year. To me that demonstrates that influencers are listening to audiobooks. Remember the old adage, “readers are leaders”? Audiobook enthusiasts are supplementing their current reading with A LOT of listening!
Do I pay upfront?
No, you pay when your audiobook is complete and approved. We’re that confident in the work we do.
What do I need to do to prepare for a recording session?
