As the Audiobook industry adjusts to the new normal due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, many publishers and their suppliers are adopting the (work from home) model.

Covid-19 affects some media differently, beautiful audiobook ads, and more tidbits you might have missed.
Audiobook publishers can now connect with NetGalley’s community of reviewers, librarians, booksellers, media, and educators who discover new books and recommend them to their audiences. These members are already excited to listen to and review audiobooks.
Dagaz Media represents the combined forces of two celebrated Maine-based talents in audio programming, William Dufris (Mind’s Eye Productions) and Fred Greenhalgh (FinalRune Productions). Though William Dufris has passed on, Fred continues Bill's legacy by continuing to produce high-end audio drama content and audiobooks for publishers, streaming services, and podcasting companies (also doing a wee bit of branded content).
Fred is recognized internationally as a pioneer in modern audio drama, in large part due to his on-location recording techniques, which take a film-like approach to field recording and apply them to audio dramas. Credits include Locke & Key, The X-Files: Cold Cases, and The X-Files: Stolen Lives, all for Audible Studios, Expeditionary Force: Homefront for Podium Publishing, and the original podcast series, The Dark Tome.
