Today Hallmark Publishing announced a deal with Dreamscape Media to expand into audiobooks. Now Hallmark stories starting with Nancy Naigle’s The Secret Ingredient, a Valentine’s Day-themed story will be turned into audio books.
“Hallmark is a beloved American heritage brand known for celebrating positive family values. Dreamscape is honored to partner with them to produce the first audiobooks of these cherished stories that reflect our way of life”, said Dreamscape Media Publisher Tammy Faxel “Our audiobooks will reflect the creative philosophy of Hallmark Publishing: to empower rising authors, elevate diversity in storytelling and evolve with the audience.”
“As we planned our venture into audiobooks, we sought a partner who would align with our brand values, artistic vision, and commitment to quality,” said Hallmark Publishing Director Stacey Donovan. “Dreamscape checked all of those boxes and their expertise will be instrumental in this exciting new chapter for Hallmark Publishing as we reimagine the timelessness and emotion of a Hallmark story in audiobook form and introduce this medium to our vast audience.”
Hallmark Publishing also announced that their new audiobooks and collection of eBook titles will be available on hoopla digital, Midwest Tape’s mobile and online service for public libraries, beginning in February. You will also be able to buy them everywhere audiobooks are sold including Audible, iTunes & Kobo. The Hallmark Publishing series joins hoopla digital’s collection of more than 675,000 eBooks, audiobooks, albums, movies and television shows.
“We are proud to work with the Midwest Tape family—Dreamscape’s award-winning production and hoopla digital’s category creating platform—to make our stories accessible to our fans and to new audiences,” said Donovan. “Anyone with a valid library card can now experience the joy of a Hallmark title – and enjoy it on multiple forms.”
