Deborah Gregory is the author of the wildly successful tween pop culture phenomenon, The Cheetah Girls, as well as another YA series, Catwalk. Now, through ACX, all nineteen titles that comprise these two groundbreaking series will be available to narrators and producers interested in bringing these books to life in audio.
The Cheetah Girls, about a female vocal group seeking fame and fortune, includes sixteen books: Wishing on a Star; Shop in the Name of Love; Who’s ‘Bout to Bounce?; Hey, Ho, Hollywood; Woof, There It Is; It’s Raining Benjamins; Dorinda’s Secret; Growl Power; Showdown at the Okie-Dokie; Cuchifrita, Ballerina; Dorinda Gets a Groove; In the House with Mouse!; Oops, Doggy Dog!; Bow-Wow-Wow!; Bring It On!; and Twinkle, Twinkle, Cheetah Stars. These New York Times bestsellers were adapted into three Disney Channel original movies, and the franchise has also spawned two sold-out concert tours, two double-platinum selling albums and a massive cult following. The series also won a Blackboard Children’s Book of the Year Award in 2001. Now, ACX gives Gregory the opportunity to connect with talented audiobook professionals to grow the audience for Cheetah Girls even more. Gregory’s newer series, Catwalk, follows four best friends and burgeoning fashion designers; these three additional titles are also available on ACX.
The viral nature of successful YA series like Cheetah Girls makes it a perfect match for ACX. The franchise’s already huge, vocal and social media-savvy audience means that financial incentives like the ACX escalator royalty model and new customer bounties can be especially significant. Royalties are paid monthly, and sales can be monitored daily.
