It is New Society Publishers 40th anniversary and what better way to celebrate than by offering our readers “solutions for troubled times” in a new format! Audiobooks are now available and we will be releasing further select front and backlist titles over the coming months.
New Society Publishers were early adopters of ebooks and each title releases simultaneously in both print and digital format. Publisher, Julie Raddysh, says: “We are committed to sharing our authors’ works as widely as possible. To this end, we see ourselves as more than just book publishers. We want to serve as a catalyst for change; sharing ideas, skills, and knowledge with readers around the world. Expanding into audio was the next logical step. What better time than now to provide our audience with instantly downloadable, always available, files.”
New Society Publishers has enjoyed a long time friendship and business relationship with Post Hypnotic Press and are delighted to see this program launch. “We are thrilled that this partnership will enable us to see the full potential of the audiobook segment,” says Raddysh.
A significant number of audio titles will be narrated by the authors, who are global thought leaders and sustainability experts. This personal touch creates a more enriching and personal experience for the listener. The first two books in the program, Culture Gap: Towards a New World in the Yalakom Valley was written and read by New Society publisher emeritus, Judith Plant. Plant is also the reader of The Aging of Aquarius: Igniting Passion and Purpose as an Elder by Helen Wilkes. In true New Society Publishers’ problem-solving, “let’s get this show on the road” style, the book was recorded in one sitting in a sound tent erected inside the log cabin office.
New Society Publishers audiobooks are available now on Audible, iTunes, Google Play, Audiobooks.com, public libraries via Overdrive, New Society Publishers website and many other sites that provide digital audio.
Raddysh says, “We hope New Society Audio will bring our readers the information they need in these troubled times, and connect them to the people and ideas that will make positive change in a world in flux. "
