July 9, 2010 - PRLog -- When it comes to audiobook content, ready access to the market counts. While mega-stores like Amazon, Audible and the iTunes Store focus on major publishers, iBookTreasures, creator of the highly successful Ambling BookPlayer, aims to expand the market for all publishers. They will launch today—the first audiobook website to offer publishers a quick, simple way to monetize content in minutes with direct control of titles and pricing. The new site drives traffic with unique features for user ratings and broader content access to attract the growing listening audience. greatly simplifies the publisher’s task of selling online compared to audiobook or music distribution sites of the past. The site is the first to introduce:

·   No upfront fees, long-term commitments or complex procedures
·   Direct control of retail and special offer pricing
·   Simple add/remove titles process
·   Up-to-the-minute reporting on sales of each title
·   Industry-leading 60% royalty on each sale

“Our aim is to break open the market for audiobook publishers large or small,” said Howard Davis, president of iBookTreasures. “Audiobook sales, particularly on mobile devices, are in a state of accelerating growth. delivers a revolutionary platform for publishers to succeed in selling to these listeners hungry for content.”

iBookTreasures carefully studied the specific needs of audiobook listeners to create their successful Ambling BookPlayer. Since that launch in September of 2009, they found a new, critical need for publishers for a tailored audiobook market website. A site that would provide the publishers with control over pricing and availability.

Publisher Advantage

Previous audio websites demanded fees of hundreds to thousands of dollars, extended contracts, or significant negotiations to market content on their sites. As an alternative, publishers tried third-party aggregators to work out this problem with limited success and increased complexity. answers this challenge by providing publishers with a simple-to-use, direct-access platform for accelerating content sales growth.

·   Optimized for use with the AmblingBookPlayer—with automatic file handling, Chapter access, and Restart points in a clean, open interface.

“Our goal is ‘bringing books to Life!’” said Davis. “With the Ambling BookPlayer, we created a superior audiobook player that is simpler to use yet makes listening more enjoyable. Now, with, we offer the simplest way for publishers to offer titles online—ready for sale and download within minutes.”
