I definitely want to follow this blog. No I am not usually a woman of few words, ha!
I’d like to follow this blog. I’d also like to know what kids of genre the audiobooks cover.
ACX covers almost any genre, except obscenity or nudity in the graphics on the cover. They seem like a very good company and the royalties are reasonable. This is an Amazon.com company.
Want to be a producer, need details
I just want to wish all the talented people at ACX, and to all the talented authors and narrators a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hi I’m just waiting for my producer to finish my audio book she said she needs at least 3 weeks to do so how long has everyone else had to wait?
Please E-mail the Auditions, Thank you!!!

I am not quite sure what it is you can do for me with my already produced Novel, now in Audio, If you have some kind of promotion plan I might be interested, as my second Novel is now being produced and will be out in about 30 days.
Thanks for any assistance,
So excited to see PULSE qualify for a stipend for the producers and to have the book moving towards its audio edition! Thanks, ACX for making it such an easy process for authors! amzn.to/1JYR0Qg
Hi there. Am trying to figure out why a 14 minute mp3voice file was rejected although larger files have been already uploaded.
Rights holders/authors – PLEASE make sure your work is narratable, and edited accordingly! I have encountered so many books that refer to photos, graphics, diagrams, illustrations etc, which the listener, obviously, can’t see!
I am just beginning. I have three books, the last just being edited. I want to narrate two of them, especially since I have written some poetry to catch moods in the stories. I have a Mac Pro computer running Macos 10 El Capitan, and am not sure what fits with that machine. Thek USB seems the way to connect and then there would have to be an “icicle” to transition to the best microphone that was built for a Windows machine. Right? I am watching all the videos and trying to learn. All ideas will be considered. Thanks!
I’ve just released my first Audiobook, Access Denied, via ACX/Amazon. Already has a 5-star review! Check it out – http://tinyurl.com/hfeyvf6
Looking forward to giving this “new” venture a try! Performance jitters are part of my life lol… Former musician (voice & cello), drama participant, prison guard, parole officer, customer service rep., & school bus driver! A glutton for punishment it seems!
Now I’m retired & have always wanted to do voice overs. Apparently, per friends & strangers, my vocal “talents” are amazing lol.
Thought it was normal that when you read books, poetry, or sang ditties you had to “give them life” by acting all the parts! Yes, I can also sing like the Lullaby League from the Wizard of Oz movie. My mom is “soooo proud!”
Wow you are very talented. I am also a beginner and would like to chat about my performance jitters. HELP

Interested in becoming a narrator
I am too. What is your genere?
I want to wish all the talented people at ACX, and to all the talented authors and narrators a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thank you so much for the mountain of information you give on everything! It’s made the daunting task of getting into VO, specifically narration, very easy. Well, easier and with direction I should say 😀
Happy New Year!
I have 12 titles in ACX., and I’m very happy with the wonderful help I’ve received. The narrators for my stories are very talented, and easy to get along with. There’s something about simply listening to a story that sparks my imagination even stronger. I’d recommend them at 5stars all the way.
That’s wonderful, I am easy to work with as well, give me a try

Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the acx blog community. As a beginner narrator, I would like to communicate & meet with acx bloggers in the Washington, DC area. Is there a list of narrators, producers and voice coaches in my area?…..HELP!
Hi Robbin, I am from Nigeria not US, and a biginer and am yet to make an audio but I will
I am new hear, but I think it is good to be hear.
You talk about. Cross-marketing and selling to fans but if I don’t any fans/friends. I wrote a book on my maternity leave and I literally have to start from sub-zero.

I’d been looking for a way to make an audiobook for several years to accommodate my vision impaired step daughter. ACX was a miracle. My wife & I listened to sample narrators, women, men, and combinations of a man & a woman, & went with Michael Brusasco. It all went smoothly & the first copy was just sold in England. The Con Case by Marc Hirsch.
I am very interested in following this blog.
I look forward to get the updated information from this blog

I am looking forward towards becoming a narrator for Audible .
I moved to Kansas 6 years ago from London and have set up my home studio, undertaken acting classes, audio book classes, voice over classes for commercials and have taken a number of audition classes. I now feel ready to start to audition for some real work!
I’m a newbie. My son sent me the info so, hmmmm. Maybe just maybe I’ll finally be discovered for the real ridiculously ridiculous person I am
I am curious to know more about chapter headings. I didn’t call each “Chapter 1” etc., I gave them titles like “Keep on Trucking.” Must I include numerical names, also? I also start each chapter with 5-10 seconds of music and then state the chapter heading. Is that okay?
Please add me to follow- thanks!
Working on my first project through ACX now!
