Can't find what you're looking for?

Why isn't my audiobook at one of the retailers I selected?

There are a couple things that could be happening:

  • The vendor could have chosen to not offer it. Findaway Voices will deliver your book to each of your selections, but that doesn't guarantee that they'll make it available to their customers. For some vendors, they might have a strategical or tactical reason to hold off, such as wanting to limit how many new releases they add to their platform they add at a time. More vendor-specific context for known limitations is provided below.
  • It just hasn't made its way there yet. If it's a newly uploaded book, keep in mind that it can take up to 30 days to be live at the majority of vendors.
  • Not all vendors have a publicly searchable catalog. For example, library services are often hidden behind a patron account. In some very rare cases, we've also encountered subscription services not necessarily making all available titles publicly searchable to non-subscribers.
  • We could have made a mistake. We try to avoid it - but it happens to the best of us! If you think there might have been a mistake during distribution, please let us know.
