So basically, they won't sell anything also available free unless it's coming from a big six publisher? Makes no sense.
I love people who poo-poo the idea that giving something away free actually makes you money, then again most of those people are the people I know who are more than willing to drop lots of money on audible but refuse to look at podiobooks.com
I don't know if it's because they think if it's free it's not good, or they are confused by podcasts (though in truth some of these people teach podcasting with me) I really don't know what it is, but I do know that I have gotten people to buy the books I get from podiobooks.com from audible, I think they are all Scott's books, but they also buy the books by authors like Tee Morris, Pip Balintine and the rest of the crew that offer other works free. Some people just love their audible, and I say good, buy those books!
I also find it funny since audible was one of the bigger sponsors of podcasts and thats one of the ways their name was spread, and yet they don't want to sell work also available free? Weird.
Lastly, I would say 70 percent of the podiobooks I have listened to make the audio books for sale on audible sound like one of my students in grade school did it. Standards have been slipping and they don't all sound like Jim Dale's Harry Potter.
