Fastest Growing Book Format?

Audio is now the fastest growing format for books. Most people walk around with a smart phone, tablet, iPad, or ebook reader, all of which can present audio. Amazon now offers Whispersync, which allows readers to seamlessly switch between electronic book formats. You can read on a Kindle at home and pick up exactly where you left off when you jump in the car.

  • The first four books of the Steve Dancy Tales are in audio.
  • The Shopkeeper audio  has 59 ratings for 4.2 stars. The non-audio versions have 459 reviews for 4.4 stars.
  • Leadville has 25 ratings for 4.6 stars. The non-audio versions have 139 reviews for 4.5 stars.
  • Murder at Thumb Butte has 15 ratings for 4.3 stars. The non-audio versions have 92 reviews for 4.5 stars.
  • The Return has 10 ratings for 4.3 stars. The non-audio versions have 111 reviews for 4.5 stars.
  • Amazon and offer a steep discount if you have previously bought the Kindle version. (Hint: this is true for many Kindle books, not just the Steve Dancy Tales.)

Visit with friends while you drive, run, or walk. Steve Dancy, Jeff Sharp, and Joseph McAllen would love to hear from you.
