Dozens of ListenUp Audiobooks titles now available for the first time for lending through the OverDrive platform. OverDrive provides 24/7 access to digital titles.
ATLANTA – February 12, 2015 — ListenUp Audiobooks, an Emmy-award winning audiobook production company, has launched a division dedicated to publishing audiobooks, as well as developing original audio work.
“Moving into the publishing world just seemed like the next logical step for ListenUp,” said Chris Fogg, CEO and founder of ListenUp Audiobooks. “After being on the production side of things for so long, adding a publishing division just made sense as we move forward.”
The new publishing division of ListenUp Audiobooks has already produced dozens of titles, including “Trident’s First Gleaming”, written by Stephen Templin, “Searching for Grace Kelly”, written by Michael Callahan, “Kinda Like Brothers”, written by Coe Booth, and Pickett’s Charge, written by Pulitzer Prize nominee Charles McNair. “We have had a great experience with the titles we have already completed and anticipate publishing hundreds more in 2015,” said Fogg.
ListenUp Audiobooks also offers downloads of thousands of audiobooks from the industry’s largest publishers through its website, with new titles being added every day.
ListenUp Audiobooks also expects to publish enhanced audiobooks and original works. The first ListenUp Original, “Funny Story: The Incomplete Works of Topher Payne”, is a collection of short stories by acclaimed Atlanta playwright, Topher Payne. It is available only from ListenUpAudiobooks.com and was created specifically to be heard, rather than read.
ListenUp Audiobooks has been producing audiobooks for publishers, including Hachette Audio, Penguin/Random House, Harper Audio, and Audible for 15 years. The company works with narrators from Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, and all over. Since 2012, ListenUp Audiobooks has been located in East Atlanta Village.
