Hachette Audio and Booktrack, a platform that synchronizes ebooks and audiobooks with movie-style soundtracks, announced today that they have partnered on audiobook versions of four young adult (YA) novellas.
Booktrack had previously partnered with Little, Brown (a Hachette imprint) on YA novellas.
“We were thrilled with the reception of Booktrack ebooks from Little, Brown for Young Readers when we launched the titles in the Booktrack format this summer,” said Paul Cameron, CEO and co-founder of Booktrack. “Hachette Book Group has always been a leader in the publishing industry and is once again ahead of the curve, leveraging Booktrack’s technology.”
The four titles include Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor, as well as Beautiful Creatures, Before the Claiming and A Gatlin Wedding, all by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
“Booktrack is doing exciting things in the digital space, and we’re happy to be the first major publisher to expand their technology to a list of audiobooks,” said Tina McIntyre, senior executive director, content development at Hachette. “We love creating new ways for our YA fans in particular to consume content from their favorite authors. We are eager to expand our offerings to established fans and neophytes alike by making these newly imagined editions of original YA audiobook recordings available.”
