At ACX, we seek out and applaud empowered, hands-on authors, which may be part of the reason MJ Rose, celebrated thriller writer and founder of the first marketing company for authors, posted eight of her titles in the marketplace back in May. As MJ explained, “I’d been frustrated that so few of my backlist titles were available in audio. Via ACX—in less than one month—I was able to join forces with two of the best narrators in the biz—Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross—and get started audio publishing my Butterfield Institute series.”
And so we are delighted to report that author members of International Thriller Writers, of which MJ is a founding member, have embraced the ACX marketplace with gusto. There are now over 100 titles from 35 different ITW authors posted on ACX, with close to 50 audiobooks currently in production and 12 already available at Audible.com. Among the award-winning authors participating are Joseph Nassise, Aaron Paul Lazar, Libby Fischer Hellmann, Raymond Benson, Allan Leverone, Ryne Douglas Pearson, Diane Fanning, Bob Mayer and Thomas Greanias.
