This week I am continuing the spotlighting of Chicago-area publishers by talking about another new-to-me publisher, Oasis Audio. Come on, you all know I couldn’t possibly resist including an audiobook publisher, as obsessed as I am these days by the format!
Oasis is based out of the Western suburbs of Chicago and was founded in 1999. They originally began publishing self-help and inspirational titles but have since expanded to include Bibles, business, children’s, fiction, and non-fiction titles – both faith-based and general market – as well, a total of over 120 per year from more than 20 print publishers.
I spent some time emailing with Jordan, Oasis’ Web and Digital Coordinator to get an idea of what makes Oasis special. He told me that Oasis is dedicated to publishing only titles that they believe will enrich the lives of their customers in some way. Each title is extremely important to them and they try to put out only the highest quality product.
I encourage you to spend some time checking out Oasis Audio and their new releases. I am particularly looking forward to the two titles by Pearl S. Buck, author of “The Good Earth.”
