ACX For Beginners
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
ACX is the most popular platform for self-publishing audiobooks. And while it has great resources for anyone who wants to use the site, putting your first book out in audio can be daunting.
How do you pick a good narrator? How much should you pay? Should you do royalty share or pay for production? What about exclusive vs. non-exclusive? What should you listen for when reviewing your audio files? How do you give feedback to your producer? Does putting a book into audio even make sense for where you are right now with your writing career?
M.L. Humphrey covers all of this and more based on her own experiences putting over twenty-five titles out in audio using ACX. She'll walk you through how to use the site as well as her own experiences and missteps with audiobooks. If you've thought about going into audio but just aren't sure where to start or how to do it, this is the book for you.
(One final note: This book is focused on authors or publishers who want to put a book into audio, it doesn't cover the producer side of ACX.)
