Ten days ago I posted my novel entitled Compromised! on YouTube as an audiobook. The response was amazing! Four days ago I added Mr. Darcy’s Mail-Order Bride. The results take my breath away.
Therefore, I am currently having more of my audiobooks being formatted so I can make them available for free. To do this I am required to buy out the contracts for the projects I did where I split the royalties with the narrator. It’s a long and expensive process. In this I am a work-in-progress.
How can I do this when audiobooks are so expensive to purchase? If I get 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours then YouTube will pay me for the advertising they are already doing on my videos. After 10 days I already have 100 subscribers and over 1,000 watch hours. As you can see, the watch hours are gaining quickly. The subscribers? Not so much. However, I will keep posting audiobooks in hopes that one day we will get there. It’s a risk I feel is worth taking.
