  1. I have been promoting ACX on LinkedIn. “Indie Book Marketing”-And that is probably a mistake. But I have an investment in them and I want them
    to succeed. That does not mean I am not irate at them for reducing
    royalty rates. I think it shows what happens when there is monopoly
    control: “To hell with the little guys” is how they think..

  2. The Rode NT-1A has a 2-6k lift that looks like a mountain range. It is designed for vocalists, not narrators, and enhances even the slightest levels of sibilance. This results in a lot of frustration for new narrators and the ears of those who listen to them.
    My I respectfully recommend the following package for those who are breaking into audiobooks.

    The sE Electronics x1 Studio Bundle:

  3. Thanks for sharing my audiobook trailer!
