Strategically giving away your audiobook is a popular way to build your readership, boost awareness, and make new fans of your work. Now you can use Authors Direct Giveaway Codes to give away your audiobook when it makes sense for you.
When you distribute your audiobook through Findaway Voices, you'll be able to request 30 Giveaway Codes for each title (or 100 if you enrolled in to Voices Plus). You don't need an Authors Direct storefront to qualify.
You may share your Giveaway Codes with influential reviewers or fans, the book's narrator, or anyone else who you feel could help raise awareness for your audiobook. US, Canada & Australia only for now.
Giveaway Codes can be redeemed at authors-direct.com/redeem for listening in the Authors Direct app (available on Android and iOS). Codes are single-use and do not automatically expire.
You must be distributing your audiobook through Findaway Voices to receive Giveaway Codes. You may not sell Giveaway Codes. Refer to your Findaway Voices Distribution Agreement for more details.
Listeners visit authors-direct.com/redeem to enter their Giveaway Code and email address. We'll automatically create an account and send them a link to download the Authors Direct app, where the audiobook will be waiting for them in their library.
If they already have an Authors Direct account, the book will simply appear instantly in their library, ready to play.
Authors Direct doesn't currently support book reviews, but you can send your reviewers to other platforms where they can leave helpful reviews for other customers. Here are a few vendors that support reviews without having purchased the book on their platform: Apple, Audiobooks.com, Downpour, eStories, Kobo, Walmart, and Scribd.
