What should be taken into account when creating an audiobook and/or a radio play?

Basically the same things have to be considered as with a music product (Information on new releases). However, the following important things apply additionally.

If there are chapter names in the audiobook, these should be used as track titles if possible. The product title must not be used in the track title.

Possible variations:
• Chapter name or Chapter 1 Chapter name or Chapter 2

• Chapter name (Part 1) or Chapter 1 (Part 1)
Chapter name (Part 2) or Chapter 1 (Part 2)
Chapter name (Part 1) or Chapter 2 (Part 1)

• Chapter 1: Chapter name or Chapter 1 - Chapter name
Chapter 2: Chapter name or Chapter 2 - Chapter name

• Chapter 1: Chapter name (Part 1) or Chapter 1 - Chapter name (Part 1)
Chapter 1: Chapter name (Part 2) or Chapter 1 - Chapter name (Part 2)
Chapter 2: Chapter name (Part 1) or Chapter 2 - Chapter name (Part 1)


Guidelines:
Please note that the track length should be at least 3 minutes. The intro and the outro are allowed to be shorter and are excluded from this rule.
A single track is not permitted to be longer than one hour.

Audible: The total playing time of your radio play/audiobook should be more than 10 minutes, otherwise your work will not go online at Audible.

Please do not create too large products (number of titles): Many streaming providers have problems with products with too many chapters. If you find well over 500 chapters per audiobook, please split the audiobook into two (or more) separate products so that all users can hear them easily.
