We salute and cherish all the authors and actors who have ‘done their work’ so that the rest of us can experience it.

The Audio Publishers Association (APA) has announced 21 titles produced by Recorded Books, Inc., Tantor Media and HighBridge as finalists for the 2015 Audie Awards.

“As the number of titles produced on audio has increased dramatically in the last few years, Recorded Books, Inc., and its family of companies—Tantor and HighBridge—have not forgotten that what drives audio success are the individual acts of creativity and effort—the author facing down a blank page to create something of wonder, and an actor facing the microphone to bring an author’s story to life with their acting talent,” said Troy Juliar, Recorded Books, Inc., senior vice president of content and acquisitions. “We salute and cherish all the authors and actors who have ‘done their work’ so that the rest of us can experience it.”

Recorded Books, Inc., Tantor Media and HighBridge have received the following nominations:
