Have you searched for an audition-ready project on ACX recently? You may have noticed a new banner labeled “Offer Pending” in your results. And if you’ve seen this new feature, you might have a few questions about it. Lucky for you, we’ve got all the answers.
Q: What does “Offer Pending” mean?
A: “Offer Pending” means the rights holder of that title has made an offer to produce it to another ACX producer.
Q: What if the offer was made to me? Will I still see the flag?
A: Nope, but others will.
Q: I’d really like to produce this book. How long does the other producer have to accept the offer?
A: Depending on the offer, the producer who received it has from 24 – 72 hours to accept or decline the offer.
Q: So can I still submit an audition even if a title has the “Offer Pending” banner?
A: Yep, you can.
Q: Is that a good idea?
A: That depends. Preparing, producing, and uploading an audition takes time. If the rights holder is negotiating with another producer, you might do that work only to find the book has gone into production. We suggest you message the rights holder to introduce yourself and request more information if you’re dead set on auditioning.
