Sara Lowe has launched a new company, Faith Audio Center, a publisher/producer of original audio books, with online retail sales only. The company's first title, "The Unbelievable (but True!) Story of Moses," has just been released, and is available for sale at www.faithaudiocenter.com. Titles will be Christian or values-based, for children or adults.
Bob Souer performs Moses, God and Pharaoh. Souer is a professional narrator whose credits include PBS television, USAirways, documentaries, audio books and radio and tv commercials. Lowe, who wrote the Biblically-based story, provides story narration. "Moses" is for children ages 4-8 and costs $14.95 for the CD. People also may buy a digital download.
Additional children's stories will be published, including more under "The Unbelievable but True" brand of Bible stories, as well as titles for adults.
The company produces a free podcast for children, "Sweet Talk for Kids," available on its web site and iTunes, as well as a blog for adults.
Free Classroom Guides accompanying the purchase of "Moses" are available on www.faithaudiocenter.com, of particular interest to home-schoolers.
"The audio book industry enjoys double-digit growth, 12% in 2007 and now tops $1 billion in sales, according to Audio Publishers Association," said Lowe. "Audio books are a wonderful way to make room for 'reading' in today's busy lives. People can listen as they work or work out. Or they can simply relax, close their eyes, and be transported by a book brought to life by professional narrators."
Lowe also owns Lowe Communications, a marketing firm in Charlotte, and online at www.lowe-communications.com. Services include web content, including blogs, newsletters, press kits and publicity campaigns, and other compelling promotions. Clients include travel, education, Christian organizations and more.
