ACX is a marketplace where professional authors, agents, publishers, and other Rights Holders can post fallow audiobook rights.
At ACX, those unused audio rights will be matched with narrators, engineers, recording studios, and other Producers capable of producing a finished audiobook, as well as with audiobook publishers.
The result: More audiobooks will be made.
Too many authors have been left out of the quickly growing and culturally repositioned digital audio market. Until now.
ACX puts you in the driver’s seat. If you’re a Rights Holder, you choose how you produce your audiobook—whether on your own or by engaging a Producer on ACX—and you choose among two royalty models.
If you’re a Producer, ACX allows you to post a profile and be seen. Plus, you can be proactive and audition on ACX for posted titles.
If you already created an audiobook and just want to sell it, we can help you.
You're Empowered If you're involved in creating audiobooks, you now have a new way to work... and a new way to earn.
A Marketplace for You Anyone who holds the rights to an audiobook (a Rights Holder) can connect with the people who can get those audiobooks made (the Producers).
