Once your audiobook has been completed and is sounding fantastic, you’re going to want to sell it. Why not let Audioshelf sell it for you on all the major retailers, including Audible, Amazon, iTunes and more, and earn up to 80% on net sales?


To really motivate your audiobook to the point of purchase, we will create a 1 minute video trailer creating awareness for the release of your much anticipated audiobook or e-book.

About US

What's our Story?

There are so many ways to tell your story. Whether it’s an audiobook, an audio tour, a podcast, or any other kind of Spoken Word audio. Audioshelf was created because we want to tell your story; not only do we want to inspire, explore and promote our favourite authors through audio, we want listeners the world over to enjoy your book, speech, or seminar through the power of the spoken word.

Audioshelf is an audio production company specializing in the Spoken Word. From concept to casting, recording to post-production, we take what’s on the page and give it a new life through the human voice.

We’re honoured and excited to be the leaders and pioneers as the first dedicated South African Online Retailer, Production House and Distributer for South African and African audiobooks and we hope to do justice to some amazing pieces of writing in the spoken word format. You write the bestseller, we do the rest!
