How It Works

Author’s Republic is an Aggregate Distributor.

We increase exposure and market presence for independent authors and small publishers by getting their work onto all the major audiobook distributors, not just the Big Three. We do all the heavy administrative lifting, leaving you to focus on what you love: writing books. Here’s how it all works.

Get Started.

The rights holder (that’s you!) comes to us with a completed audiobook and registers for a Rights Holder account.

Planning.

You indicate which of our retailer and distributor partners you’d like to sell your audiobook through, and fill out a form with all of the information those distributors need in order to sell your book.

Project Kickoff.

You submit the book to us, and we check to make sure it meets minimum standards. If there’s a problem with your files or metadata, we’ll let you know.

Development.

Your book will be reviewed by the distributors you've requested and, if accepted, will soon become available for sale. Depending on the distributor, this can be as quickly as 5 business days or as long as 60.

The Result.

The money starts rolling in! You'll receive 70% of what your audiobook earns across over 30 channels, including all major distributors such as Audible, Audiobooks.com, and iTunes. You’ll receive a sales report aggregating the sales data provided by all our distributors and a deposit once every month via PayPal (or ACH if you are based in the US and have 10 or more titles).
