According to the Alliance of Independent Authors's data, more and more people have started to spend money on book reading. Simultaneously, online reading websites provide an excellent environment for indie writers to publish their works without high expenses. "In a few short years, indie authors have irrevocably changed the industry: now accounting for 30-34% of all ebook sales in the largest English-language markets, depending on which source you read (and none of them tell the full story), and making real inroads into the audiobook market too, and into print, through print-on-demand."
Static shows "readers are changing their habits: one in four US reads ebooks while one in five readers now listens to audio" that audiobooks have become a trend and significant reading tool in the book industry.
1. Indie writers need a platform to publish their books easily.
2. Some of the readers want to read books from not only professional writers but also indie writers.
3. Writers and readers need a platform to communicate with each other.
