I am still an Audible customer, and have been for a long time, and would like to add this to their defense: If you purchase 24 of their credits in one swoop, you have a price og 9,56 bucks pr book. In my opinion that is a fair price. Sure, they have DRM on their files, and takes almost any oppertunity to secure the product, which is a quality that really sucks. I cannot use the audiobooks on any platform I want. That also sucks. That said, im happy overall.
I have listened to all Scott Sigler books. And I think that there is a market for pure content books without lead ins and outs. I personally purchased The All Pro from his site (I think the price was about 20$) in order to not have the in- and outtros. When Scott publishes the episodes on his site for free, he has his 4 minuts of fury, and whatnut at the end. Im not a big fan of that, so I pay for it.
Audible will ofcourse try to maintain or expand their business. It just looks like they are trying to take too much advantage of people this time.
