What Spotify’s Expansion into Audiobooks Could Mean for Independent Authors


Spotify’s recent acquisition of Findaway gives authors, particularly those who publish independently, the potential to reach a greater audience for their audiobooks. As of now, Spotify has indicated that it will focus on à la carte audiobook sales as opposed to an exclusive subscription model, as it uses for music and podcasts. However, any move towards implementing a subscription service could result in much lower royalties for authors.
