CoolBeat Audiobook Publishing is a partnership based in Sarasota, Florida. He [Alex] is a Silicon Valley refugee. She [Dale] is a flower-child entrepreneur. Like the different toned twin drums of a bongo, together we make a wonderful sound... CoolBeat!
CoolBeat is a traditional audio publishing house (NAICS 512220), a member of the Audio Publishers Association (APA), and regularly listed in Audiofile Magazine. Every downloadable MP3 audiobook we sell has been created by us, and thus found nowhere else. Although our goal is to offer an eclectic catalog, we are very selective about what we publish. If we don't feel a work is CoolBeat material, in either attitude or philosophy, we simply won't publish it!
CoolBeat Audiobook Publishing is committed to audio quality for our audiobooks. We use high-end studio grade microphones and recorders when creating our audiophile grade audiobooks, and our pool of Voice Talent is outstanding!
We at CoolBeat Audiobook Publishing are passionate about what we do, and excited about the possibilities for our listenership; Adults, Children, and Juniors. CoolBeat audiobooks are the ideal way to "read" more, while pursuing manual tasks or other lifestyle activities.
CoolBeat Audiobook Publishing specializes in the uncommon. We believe that there should be variety in the kinds of audiobooks available to our listeners, not just retreads of the same old "classics" and over-hyped best sellers; and our selections of exclusive and off-beat material reflects this. No matter how unusual the content, you can be assured that all of our audiobooks are worthy of your time. See our Promotionals page for news about upcoming CoolBeat audiobooks.
