Since it is so expensive to produce an audio book, and since I wouldn’t be able to get enough sales on certain audio books to pay for the cost of a professional reader, I decided to use the Google Artificial Intelligence App to create audio versions of the books that wouldn’t be profitable otherwise.
The quality is not super, but it is passable. You won’t hear common human emotions, and the reader doesn’t alter his voice for different characters, but if all you want is to hear the text, then it’s not bad. Also, going this route allows me to charge only $5 per audio book.
The following books are now available on audio using this AI engine:
Masters & Slayers – https://www.theauthorschair.com/shopping/product/1-masters-slayers-audio-book/
Third Starlighter – https://www.theauthorschair.com/shopping/product/2-third-starlighter-audio-book/
