Share your audiobook, completely free

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.

Here's how it works

Password field

When you distribute your audiobook through Findaway Voices, you'll receive 30 Authors Direct Giveaway Codes from the distribution team within two weeks of submission. You don't need an Authors Direct storefront to qualify.

Networked people

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 only for now.

Phone with download icon

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.

Authors Direct Giveaway Codes make it simple for listeners, too.

Redemption is seamless

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.

Reviews

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: Apple, Audiobooks.com, Audible/Amazon, Downpour, eStories, Kobo, Walmart, and Scribd.
