4 ACX narrators win Audie Awards

We know authors and rights holders using ACX care about the quality of their audiobooks–and we do too, which is why we’ve made a point of reminding everyone we talk to that ACX features many famous and award-winning audiobook narrators and producers.  At last week’s annual Audie Awards, we were thrilled to see four ACX audio pros recognized for their excellence.  (Many many more were nominated!)  In the classic category, ACX narrators Rosalyn Landor and John Lee won an Audie for their narration of Wilkie Collins’s The Woman in White, and in the history category, Robert Fass received an Audie for his performance of Gordon Wood’s Empire of Liberty. And ACX producer Stefan Rudnicki won an Audie for best audio drama for George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan: A Chronicle Play in Six Scenes and an Epilogue.  On ACX, the profiles of all four of these Audie winners carry the Audible-Approved designation, which means they are among the best and most experienced on ACX.  Congratulations to Rosalyn, John, Robert and Stefan–maybe the next book one of them narrates or produces will be yours!  Feel free to reach out to any one of them on ACX (links above) and request that they audition for one of your projects.

  1. Ideally, teachers use a contamibion of phonics and sight-words. Children learn the sounds each letter (usually) makes and a few simple exception-rules (e.g., for long vs. short vowels, and th). Then, in parallel, they learn, a few at a time, exception-words that don’t really follow any rules (was, the, me, girl) how to read and spell them. Children in grade school generally have weekly spelling-tests for such words.But no one notices the difference the MA makes in man vs. mark or make vs. many. If anyone asked a native speaker, we would say they are only two sounds.
