  1. ACX Rocks! I got in just in time to learn how to narrate my own books before a TV appearance on PBS, “The Real Orange”! I learned from ACX that being the writer helped with pace, character interpretation and everything else. Check out FREE samples of my Drug War and Prison Books in Audio here~ http://amzn.to/1bOLlO3 Check out the PBS interview here~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6csHeGqpe20

    If you were scared to narrate your own books, don’t be. Just follow what ACX teaches on their website.
