Tramp Press is moving into audiobooks, launching with Corpsing: My Body and Other Horror Shows by Sophie White, read by the author.
The indie, based in Ireland and Scotland, said Tramp Press Audio will “combine exceptional literary talent with an independent spirit”, initially distributing directly through the publisher’s own website. Corpsing will be the first title to publish, on 7th June.
Lisa Coen, co-director and publisher, said: “We are very excited to announce a big step for Tramp Press as we move into offering audiobooks to our readers. In previous co-publishing partnerships, we’ve really enjoyed hearing Tramp Press titles adapted for audio. We will always love beautiful print editions of our books, but we also love to have stories told to us from time to time. We are especially proud to launch Tramp Press Audio with the critically acclaimed bestseller Corpsing by Sophie White.’
White added: “It was a career-first and definitely a career highlight to read a work of mine for its release in audiobook form. As a reader, I'm a huge fan of the audiobook, particularly in terms of non-fiction, as I think it offers readers such an intimate experience of the work. Plus I can knit while I listen! I think the audiobook of Corpsing will be a lovely companion piece to the gorgeous print edition. It was at times challenging to read it but I hope I have done the work justice.”
