With more than 1,400 active titles in its catalog, Grupo Autêntica announces a partnership with the Ubook streaming audiobook platform, one of the largest in Latin America. Both companies are part of Brazilian Publishers, a project to foster the Brazilian editorial content exports promoted by the Brazilian Book Chamber (CBL) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
In this first moment, five works of the group become part of the catalog of the Ubook. The first two titles that are already available in audio are “The Children Who Cheated the Nazis” and “The Girl in the Ice”. The Ubook will be responsible for preparing the audio versions of the books, explains Cristina Albuquerque, content manager of the platform.
“We invest a lot not only in technology but in all the construction and mentoring work and in choosing the best voices that fit the profile of each narrated work”, comments. With less than four years of existence, the Ubook has more than 2.5 million registered users, 100 thousand podcasts, 15 thousand audiobook titles, with works in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
For the executive director of the Grupo Autêntica, Arnaud Vin, the launch comes in line with the judicious selection of content and partners that is in the DNA of the group. “Ubook was selected this year by the organization of the London Book Fair as one of the three best audiobook publishers in the world, which demonstrates the dedication with which the team works to bring the best content to its subscribers”, concludes.
