Neil Gaiman is using ACX to curate his own label of audiobooks. He selects books he loves, encourages rightsholders to claim and post the titles in ACX, and uses the ACX marketplace to negotiate his royalty-share production deals. He personally selects auditions to submit for rightsholder approval and adds at least one unique elements to every audiobook with by recording custom introductions. Finally, he conveys his passion for the book and the performance in social media, blogs, and on the Audible.com site under the banner of "Neil Gaiman Presents," or "NGP." As an award-winning author and an Audie-award winning narrator, Neil understands that "in an ideal world you should be able to listen to every book you love being read by someone who's perfect for it. Getting involved in ACX, and curating my own label within it, is my way of trying to get to that ideal world." Neil is building his inaugural list of authors now, and will be announcing them and title releases soon.
Just to recap, Neil is using ACX to curate his own label of audiobooks. He selects books he loves, encourages rightsholders to claim and post the titles in ACX, and uses the ACX marketplace to negotiate his royalty-share production deals. He personally selects auditions to submit for rightsholder approval and adds at least one unique elements to every audiobook with by recording custom introductions. Finally, he conveys his passion for the book and the performance in social media, blogs, and on the Audible.com site under the banner of "Neil Gaiman Presents," or "NGP." Even though NGP is brand new, Neil himself has narrated more than twenty-five (25) audiobooks, including his own works The Graveyard Book, Neverwhere, Stardust, Coraline, and Telling Tales. He has also narrated an introduction to Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser by Fritz Leiber. Thirty-three (33) of Neil's novels and short stories are available as audiobooks. In addition to the titles mentioned above, his Audible bestsellers include Anansi Boys and American Gods. The Tenth Anniversary edition of American Gods will be released on June 21, 2011 by HarperAudio; not only will the audiobook be Neil's "preferred text," it will also feature Nicole Quinn, who won the speaking role in a nationwide contest. Neil's extensive screenwriting and film credits include "The Doctor's Wife" episode of Doctor Who, which aired on the BBC network in May, and the film MirrorMask, which was nominated for the William Shatner Golden Groundhog Award for Best Underground Movie. He is currently co-producing a 3D film version of the Chinese epic The Monkey King.
