I would like to see the answer to that as well. I'm probably going to unpub in November. I would like to know if it's possible to unpub audiobooks as well.

I can only speak to Amazon, but I unpubbed a boxed set, then repubbed it two years later under the same ASIN and the old reviews came back.

That's what I thought.

They never really delete the product page. Just hide it.

So as long as the asin doesn't change, it should be fine.
Genres: Space Opera/Fantasy/Cyberpunk, with elements of LitRPG and GameLit, with a touch of the Supernatural. Also Spiritual and Games.

What about Audible? Can I unpublish there?

Guess I'll have to check with Audible and Amazon. Hope I can get a straight answer.
