Why Us?

Author’s Republic is more than just an audiobook distributor.

We’re your audiobook creation station, your distribution solution. We’re a bunch of friendly audiobook-obsessed people.

We help authors, publishers, and rights holders produce audiobooks and get them onto more platforms and in front of more listeners in the easiest way possible.

Here’s what sets us apart:

We're your Independent Audiobook Distributor

Unlike other platforms owned by specific retailers—which limit distribution to only their channels—Author’s Republic is entirely independent, giving your audiobook limitless potential.

No Hidden Fees

When you produce your audiobook through The Author's Republic Studio, what you see is what you get! We don't charge an administration fee or sneak in any percentage cuts. We help authors and publishers find the perfect audiobook narrator, and provide the platform to get it done effortlessly. The amount you and your narrator decide on, is the amount you pay.

Maximize Your Earnings

You'll receive 70% of royalties earned by your audiobook across over 50 channels, including major distributors such as Audible, Audiobooks.com, iTunes, Spotify, and Google Play!

Bring Your Book To Life — Globally!

Find the perfect voice for your work through The Author's Republic Studio. Then, effortlessly launch your professionally produced audiobook worldwide with the click of a button!

Sell your audiobook through over 50 platforms from major retailers to small startups, library providers, and music streaming services. We’re always working on building new partnerships to deliver your audiobooks to millions of listeners worldwide.

Set Your Own Price

Producing your audiobook through The Author’s Republic Studio allows authors and narrators the option to negotiate a price that makes everyone happy! (PFH, royalty share, and hybrid options available).

Instead of using a blanket pricing system you can set your own MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price). We can’t promise each platform will use it though. Some partners control pricing based on the length of your audiobook.

One Account To Rule Them All

Forget about managing over a dozen different accounts and trying to remember 12 variations of “Password123”. We display all your sales on a handy dashboard and cut you one monthly royalty check, too.

Cut out the Middle (Mail) Man

We keep it convenient, eco-friendly, and safe by sending your payments directly to your PayPal account (direct deposit is also available to US-based authors with 10+ titles).

When you produce your audiobook through The Author’s Republic Studio payments are held safely and securely until all parties have delivered their end of the bargain!

Authors Without Borders

Restrictions can make things tough for authors outside of North America. We accept submissions from rights holders all over the globe (interplanetary submissions coming soon.)
