How do narrators find and work with great independent authors? How do you know which authors will be good business partners, and how can you reach out to them in ways that will prompt a response? Once you’ve got an author who is interested in working with you, how do you negotiate an agreement that will be good for all involved? Oh, and what’s the deal with royalty share?

This webinar will answer all those questions, and more! Whether you’re a brand new narrator or a seasoned pro, working with indie authors can be a great way for narrators to diversify their client base. This webinar will provide a deep dive into why you should work with indie authors and how to do it in practical steps.
