Something for Everyone. Whether you're an author, publisher, or narrator, ACX makes life better, more creative, and potentially more lucrative.
Rights Holders: If you're a Rights Holder—an author, publisher, or agent—you can use ACX to engage audiobook Producers and create your audiobook. Or, you can sell the audio rights you hold to audio publishers.
Choose between exclusive or non-exclusive distribution plans, and your royalties are paid to you monthly for US users and quarterly for users in the UK.
Producers (narrators, editors, and other studio professionals): Producers can engage narrators or other studio professionals to perform services on an Audiobook Production Contract they've entered into through ACX. If you're an actor or narrator, use ACX to increase your auditioning opportunities. If you're a studio professional, audition your products. Either way, find plenty of work, set your rate, and increase your earning potential.
Rights Holders may discover you as they browse ACX for professional actors capable of brilliantly performing literary works and studio professionals with the expertise and contacts necessary to produce a commercial-ready audiobook. And, if you enter into a Royalty Share Deal as a Producer, you can earn royalties for years.
Independent Publishers: If you're an audiobook publisher, you can use ACX to uncover new audio rights to acquire and new audiobooks to produce. ACX gives you a central place to find intriguing titles that are available for audio production.
As a print publisher, you can use ACX to find talented professionals to collaborate with, and expand your business by establishing a brand-new audiobook division, however big or small.
Audible: At Audible, we're committed to providing our members the very best audio entertainment. With ACX, we're expanding the content available to our customers and strengthening our position as the leader in the audiobook marketplace.
We also view ACX as an important way to deepen our working relationships with authors, narrators, and publishers. Our goal is to create an audio rights marketplace, a flourishing network of professional audiobook creators, and a world of new opportunities.
