“Full-length audiobooks available to download direct to mobile phones for the first time”

Andy McNab is backing the launch of  GoSpoken, a new service that allows UK customers to preview, purchase and download audiobooks via their mobile phones for the first time.

The bestselling author is a partner of digital content company Spoken Entertainment, which teamed up with the Random House Group to launch the service at the London International Book Fair in London today.

Mobile phone users who have a data plan can now visit www.gospoken.com via their handsets to browse, purchase and download audiobooks without using a credit card, as payment is billed to the users’ mobile phone account or through mobile PayPal.

Fifty Random House Group audiobooks are now available to purchase and download, including six Andy McNab titles. Other authors available on the service include Chris Ryan, John Grisham, Karin Slaughter, Thomas Harris, James Patterson and Sebastian Faulks.

Andy McNab comments:

“I’m a great fan of audiobooks and passionate about bringing them to a wider audience in the UK. The immediacy of the spoken word and added texture of sound effects really transport you to another world through your headphones.

GoSpoken will bring audiobooks into the 21st Century – being able to download them to your mobile, wherever you are, means you will never be bored again.”
