I’ve enjoyed composing a sound track for the excerpt of “The Soul Thief” I posted on Booktrack.com. The length of the excerpt is identical to that of Amazon’s preview, and I’ve linked it to the Kindle page.
At one point I needed some Romani fiddle music, and the sound library on Booktrack does not include anything that I liked. However, I found a public domain track with exactly what I wanted and added that to the book. I think it worked really well.
I’d be curious to know if any Audible books are done with sound effects or if they are all narrated without accompaniment. I’d also be curious to know if I *could* create audio books with and without accompaniment. Perhaps even switchable within the book.
