Celebrated thriller writer MJ Rose is the bestselling author of 11 novels. But until now, eight of these have been unavailable in audio. Now, ACX gives Rose an easy and cost-effective way to get those books made in audio—and expose her work to even more fans and other book- minded people.
Rose’s eight titles posted on ACX are Sheet Music, Lip Service, The Halo Effect, The Delilah Complex, The Venus Fix, In Fidelity, Lying in Bed and Flesh Tones. ACX marketplace functionality allows Rose to connect easily with talented narrators and producers who will be vying to perform and produce her books. She can choose to pay a one-time fee for production at market-optimized rates, or pay nothing upfront and split royalties with the producer of her audiobook. And ACX puts Rose in the director’s chair: she can review auditions online, specify narration requirements and interact with narrators and producers as production progresses. Rose’s audiobooks made on ACX are guaranteed to have high-quality production values—numerous checkpoints along the way ensure this. And for a high-profile author like Rose, the ACX exclusive distribution model, which features an escalating royalty that reaches 90%, makes especially compelling financial sense.
Rose, a founding member of International Thriller Writers, is also the founder of the first marketing company for authors, AuthorBuzz.com, and she runs the popular blog, Buzz, Balls & Hype. Rose’s marketing savvy makes her a perfect fit for ACX. Rose can draw upon her social media savvy, her numerous colleagues and fans, as well as ACX sales acceleration tools, to gain further cash royalties when sales of her titles generate a new Audible member. Royalties are paid monthly, and Rose can monitor projects daily.
MJ Rose is a recognized publishing leader and innovator, so her participation in ACX bodes well for other authors and rightsholders interested in getting their books made in audio.I’m inspired by M.J. Rose – get me started on ACX now! See next
