Some great ACX titles for you

Here’s a post for all ACX Producers…

Having over a thousand titles listed on ACX can be overwhelming to a lot of you.  Which ones do I audition for?  Where do I start?  To help, below we’re highlighting 21 great titles for you to focus on over the next few days.  The list is divided between Pay For Production and Royalty Share deals.  The Royalty Share titles were handpicked by some folks at Audible for their sales potential, based on a combination of each book’s subject matter, length, and print sales history, as well as the author’s notoriety.

If you (or someone from your stable of narrators, if you’re a studio) would be a good match for the voice needed, please submit an audition.  Some of these Rights Holders will be ready to make offers in the next two weeks, so don’t delay.  Remember that you can only submit one audition per title so please put your best voice forward. Note: based on your helpful feedback, we’ll be improving the audition process soon, allowing narrators to revise their audition and studios to submit multiple auditions.
