We invest in authors whom we believe in

Upfront Books truly partners with authors through royalty sharing agreements to create the fairest terms and best-aligned incentives in the audiobook industry. And the best part is that all you have to do is hand in your manuscript: you've written the book, and now we'll take on production at zero upfront cost. We'll edit the manuscript to be well-suited for audio, find the voice(s) that suit your work and produce a masterpiece, and distribute your audiobook directly to consumers.

Testimonials from our author partners


I've been really surprised by how many people have told me they've bought my book, LinkedIn Unlocked, in audiobook and digital or print also! The feedback from listeners has been excellent, and I must thank Upfront Books for doing such a fantastic and swift job in converting my book, written exercises and all, into an easily listened to audiobook.

I've already recommended the Upfront Books team to author friends of mine. They created a wonderful audiobook that my audience has very much enjoyed! I was particularly impressed with the wide array of voices available, and the contracting process was not only painless but also resulted in a mutually beneficial agreement.

Tyler and the team at Upfront did an amazing job on my audiobook. Getting my book ready for Audible was a big milestone for me, and the Upfront team moved quickly while sweating the details. The wonderful reviews from people who purchased my audiobook speak volumes. Many thanks to this incredible team!!
