Recorded Books Acquires Exclusive Audio Rights to A.G. Riddle’s Winter World and Four Other Novels

Bestselling independent author has proven track record in both print and audio

Landover, MD, October 9, 2018—Recorded Books, an RBmedia company, today announced an exclusive, seven-figure deal with worldwide bestselling author A.G. Riddle to publish his next five books, including Winter World, his highly anticipated new work releasing early next year.

A.G. Riddle is one of the world’s most successful independent authors. His six previous books have sold over 3 million copies in English, including a half-million copies on audio. This entrepreneurial and highly creative independent author is consistently ranked near the top on Amazon books in three commercial categories—thrillers, action & adventure, and science fiction. Riddle’s work has been translated into 20 languages and is published worldwide. His standalone novel, Departure, and the Origin Mystery series have been optioned for film.

“A.G. Riddle has built tremendous success for himself in the highly competitive world of self-publishing—a rare occurrence that’s inspiring to watch. He has an engaged and robust fan base that we will work together to grow,” says Troy Juliar, Chief Content Officer of RBmedia. “His novels are incredibly cinematic, as indicated by the strong film interest. We’re thrilled to partner with him on expanding the audio audience for his exciting work.”

“A global leader in the audiobook industry, Recorded Books offers the best of everything I’m looking for—outstanding production quality, a unique ability to find and grow audiobook audiences, and unrivaled distribution reach, including direct to consumers, libraries, and third-party distributors,” says A.G. Riddle. “I’m thrilled to partner with Recorded Books to build on my success by bringing my audiobooks to audiences I haven’t reached before now.”

The Martian meets Interstellar in his new sci-fi thriller Winter World about a new ice age that grips Earth. NASA and other space agencies send probes into the solar system to collect data, but they find something no one expected: a mysterious object, floating deep in space. As humanity’s best hope of survival, an international consortium launches a desperate mission to study the object and make contact. But what the crew discovers is beyond anyone’s imagination.

The audiobook for Winter World will release in early 2019 and will be available anywhere audiobooks are sold. Rights were handled by Danny Baror at Baror International.
