Who we are

We’re a UK based audiobook production and publishing company. We’re passionate about building relationships to deliver excellence in audio production.

Raconteurs began in a Manhattan café in 2018, when a group of British audiobook veterans were attending the Audiobook Publisher’s Association Conference. We realised that out of the thousands of books made into audiobooks, many authors, particularly independent and self-publishing authors, have little idea how to bring their work to a listening audience. 

We have developed a streamlined and straightforward way for authors to produce and publish an audio version of their work.

We take care of every aspect of an audiobook’s creation, taking the author’s wishes into consideration. We handle production planning, scheduling, casting, recording, proofing, editing and mastering – and finally, we ensure that the audiobook is distributed globally, on time and at the quality that the industry demands.

Our collaborators

We believe creating an audiobook should be a collaborative process. We achieve this by regular liaison with authors and publishers, as well as with our narrators, cover artists, audio proofers, engineers, sound designers, and producers.

We actively involve our authors during the planning stage, and keep them informed of progress as the production develops. In this way we forge relationships with everyone involved so we become their preferred production partner.

When we begin working on your title we select the most appropriate team for you. This includes casting the right narrator for your book from our pool of carefully vetted narrators. Click here to find out more about our narration process.
