In addition to our weekly links roundup, we’ve got exciting news about an online event we’re hosting next week. On Tuesday at 8pm ET, Rob Grannis of Brick Shop Audio will be joining us for a Twitter chat to talk all things audiobooks. Rights Holders can bring their questions about audition scripts, casting, and reviewing audio, and Producers can ask about all aspects of producing audiobooks.
How can you get in on the action? First, follow @acx_com and @BrickShopAudio. Then, join us on Twitter on Tuesday 2/11 at 8pm ET. Tweet your questions at us using the #ACXchat hashtag. You can also follow the conversation live from our Twubs page if you like. We can’t wait to chat with you!
Now, on to those links. Enjoy!
