We hope all producers on ACX are finding the marketplace to be a good source of interesting projects, and we hope you are all auditioning for audiobooks on ACX. We do get a number of questions from producers about Royalty Share deals (in which you’d forego upfront payment and instead split the royalties 50-50 with the book’s rights holder). We think this can be a lucrative option for producers, especially because you also get half of any $25 bounties generated. But we want to tempt you producers even more…so we have extended our special Stipend Offer.
If you, as a producer on ACX, accept a Royalty Share offer on any of the numerous stipend-eligible titles — scroll down for some great selections or click here to see all of them (note: you must be logged in as a producer to view them) — by October 31, it comes with an extra $100 per-finished-hour stipend (e.g. $1,200 for a 12-hour audiobook). The stipend is, of course, in addition to the Royalties and Bounties you earn on sales of the audiobook. It is paid to you when the Rights Holder approves your audiobook production (and ACX double-checks it).
For all of the fine print, see here.
You can get this $100 per-finished-hour Stipend Offer on up to three productions, so don’t be shy about auditioning! And good luck.
