Why Enroll Your Audiobook in Audible Escape?
A New Way to Earn
Earn from the first minute Audible Escape Subscribers select and listen to your audiobook. You'll be paid for the total minutes listened to your audiobook based on your share of total minutes listened.
Maximize Your Audiobook’s Reach
Enrolling your titles into Audible Escape adds new earning potential to your current audiobook earnings. Qualified titles will be reviewed and added to the catalog each month.
Discover New Listeners
Adding your audiobooks to Audible Escape introduces them to brand new fans and listeners. Plus, your audiobooks will be eligible for new listening markets as Audible grows.
How can I enroll my eligible audiobooks in Audible Escape?
To enroll your audiobook, simply navigate to the Programs tab in your ACX account, click Enroll Eligible Audiobooks. You will then see a list of titles that qualify for Audible Escape.
Does enrollment in Audible Escape guarantee that my audiobook will be available to subscribers?
While it's our goal to include as many ACX audiobooks as possible, enrollment in this program does not guarantee your audiobook will be available to subscribers. Final decisions about which audiobooks will be included are made by Audible editors. Books will be reviewed monthly for consideration, and you will be notified by email when your audiobook is available to listeners, typically around the 15th of each month. If your audiobook is not included in that month's collection, your audiobook will automatically be considered for the following month's review.
When will my audiobook appear in Audible Escape?
Qualified titles will be reviewed monthly for inclusion in Audible Escape. Once your audiobook is available to subscribers, it will remain in the program through the end of your ACX distribution contract. Enrollment in Audible Escape does not guarantee your audiobook will be made available to listeners. We will notify you by email when your audiobook is available to listeners.
How will I be compensated for audiobooks distributed through Audible Escape?
Earnings will be determined by how long members listened to your audiobook using on a shared revenue model based on total minutes listened per month.
When and how will my Audible Escape earnings be reported and paid?
Your earnings for audiobooks accessed in the Romance Package will be reported and paid on a quarterly basis beginning in February 2018.
Can I enroll some but not all audiobooks in Audible Escape?
Yes! We encourage you to experiment with the distribution channels that work best for your audiobook.
Where will my audiobook be distributed through this program?
When you enroll your title in this distribution program, your audiobook will continue to be available in both your current distribution network of Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, as well as Audible Escape. ACX wants to help you grow your distribution opportunities beyond Audible’s traditional networks. By enrolling in this program, your book may be eligible for future distribution in opportunities similar to the Romance Package. We'll notify you when your audiobooks become available in any new channels.
Where can I see the applicable terms that relate to this opportunity?
Audiobooks will be distributed according to the terms of the Catalog Subscription Service Agreement listed in the Legal Contracts section of ACX. See the full terms here.
