A Note on Audible

We understand that authors do not have pricing control on Audible. For a Weekly deal we require that your book is free and discounted on one non-Amazon retailer. However, we also include Audible links as a link option for Audible members to redeem their credits for your book. An Audio Thicket promotion will result in sales on non-Amazon retailers (Apple, Google Play, etc) in addition to Audible redemptions in the days and weeks following your promotion.

  1. No use for me at the moment sadly as I write historical fiction – not currently covered. Hopefully you may expand your offering over time. (I have had successful ebook promotions with you.)
