We publish audiobooks by contemporary writers, but also modern classics and playful stories for children. The broad selection of titles and authors covers most genres including the full fiction spectrum from thrillers to romance or science fiction/fantasy, classic literature and titles with a young adult/children's focus plus many nonfiction subgenres ranging from inspiration and self-help to business advice to memoirs and biographies. As a leading audiobook publisher on the Czech and Slovakian market, we successfully released audio bestsellers by Stieg Larsson, Jo Nesbø, Jussi Adler-Olsen, Peter May, Henning Mankell, Lars Kepler, David Mitchell, Haruki Murakami, Simon Mawer, Fredrik Backman, Gillian Flynn, Lyndsay Faye, Michel Houellebecq, Muriel Barbery, Tom Robbins, John Fowles, Vladimir Nabokov, Margaret Atwood, Kazuo Ishiguro, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman etc.
Our audiobooks are carefully prepared in our own acoustically perfect studios with full professional production in cooperation with best voice actors, audio directors, sound engineers, music composers and graphic designers. We don´t see audiobook as mere re-reading of the book aloud, but as an interpretation art or sound adaptation with its own atmosphere created by quality sound work and original music composed specially for every piece. OneHotBook publishes audiobooks on mp3-CD and files suitable for download.
