Archangel Ink was created for authors, by authors. We know as indie authors that the most daunting thing about audiobook production is the cost. We’ve done everything in our power to minimize costs and maximize profits–all while keeping the quality at a professional level.
We offer some of the lowest audiobook rates on earth. We will narrate your book, edit it, master it, finalize production, create a promotional CD image (shown left) and an upload-ready audiobook cover for you for just $50 plus $30 per thousand recorded words.
This comes out to be just under $250 per finished hour, compared to the standard rates ranging from $300-500 per hour.
If you’re on the fence about whether an audiobook is right for you, rest assured that we do our level best to ensure you see a positive return on investment. Out of respect to you as a creator and businessperson, we will always let you know if we do not believe a project is viable. We want to help successful people be more successful, not leave a trail of cynicism due to false hype and inflated promises
We’ll ask for information such as book length, Kindle and paperback sales figures, genre, topic, and will use that to let you know our honest take on whether it’s worth it for you.

I am familiar with recording studios, and the problems with editing, continuity, sound quality, uniformity, etc. The quality of Archangel Ink’s recording of my book was excellent and, I’m sure, Matt’s rendition has a lot to do with its success. Matt and Rob could not have been more helpful, congenial, trustworthy, or professional. Their fees were very reasonable and they had my book on all audio book markets in a month. I had no idea I was missing out on so much money in the audiobook market. I just wish I would have found these guys sooner! I highly recommend their services.

Kudos to Rob and his audiobook team! I was a newbie to the ACX and audiobook world, and they made the process fast, easy and affordable. The narration is top-notch, and they delivered my book way ahead of schedule.
Rob and his team at Archangel Ink has made publishing audiobooks a breeze. The production values are high-quality and very professional. Best of all, they consistently over-deliver with their services and I had no issues when it came to communicating with them during the production process. In short, it’s been a pleasure doing business with Archangel Ink and I recommend their services to any serious authors looking to get their books made into audio.
Don’t even THINK about recording your audiobook yourself. This isn’t podcasting, and listeners will hold you to a higher standard when they pay good money for the audiobook. Let the professionals at Archangel Ink take care of everything for you. They created a terrific audiobook for me, and saved me countless hours. It’s a no brainer.

Archangel Ink is absolutely the best at what they do! Their customer service is fantastic, response time is really fast, and they have delivered every single project we’ve sent them ahead of time. They even went above and beyond on making edits, even when the mistakes were clearly our fault. Plus, their rates are better than all the competition! Their team is also a pleasure to work with. What more could you ask for?
Having Archangel Ink produce my audio books is a no-brainer. Just send them the copy of your book … and magic happens. Now you have an audio book that meets all the specifications of Audible.com. I don’t have to do anything. I have had them produce 13 audio books so far, and I love them!
Rob and the Archangel Ink team under-promised and over-delivered. Their service was top-notch and made it super easy for me to go through the end-to-end process. This was my first audiobook production and they made it painless and quite enjoyable. Thank you!
