Your Book Deserves to Be Heard – Live at BEA!

Calling all authors! Are you attending BookExpo America (BEA)? If so, we’d like to meet you. ACX will be exhibiting at the show Thursday May 30 through Saturday June 1 in booth DZ1860.

If you haven’t produced an audio version of your title, here’s your chance to experience a narrator performing a sample of your book live at BEA. Bring us 2-3 pages of your manuscript (or a copy of your book if it’s handy!), and our professional voice actor will consult with you on your story and perform your excerpt live! We’ll send you the free sample recording within a week of the show, and our staff will be on hand to assist you in signing up for ACX and claiming your first title. Reservations for these free performances are limited, so register here to reserve your space.

ACX is thrilled to have some of the best voices in the business participating in this event. Here’s who you can expect to meet and perform your book:

Elisabeth Rodgers – Thursday 5/30, 9a – 1p

Visit ACX at BEA!

ACX is proud to announce our presence at BookExpo America (BEA) May 30th – June 1st 2013!

BookExpo America is North America’s largest gathering of book trade professionals, attracting an international audience of retailers, booksellers, authors and more. BEA is recognized for the media attention it brings to upcoming books as well as for the notable authors it attracts to the convention itself. In 2012, attendance rose to over 14,000 with overall attendance, inclusive of exhibitors, reaching 22,000.

Visitors to the Digital Discovery Zone booth DZ1860 at BEA will get to experience the power of the spoken word live. This year, ACX will present an interactive demonstration of audiobook creation through ACX.com. During show hours, authors, rights holders, agents, and publishers who visit the ACX booth will have the opportunity to meet one of our professional audiobook narrators and have an excerpt of their titles performed and recorded – live. Have a free consultation with an actor to determine the type of performance that is best for your book. Then, watch as they perform and record your words in our on-site recording booth. You will receive your audiobook sample from us within one week at no cost, and can sign up for ACX, claim your title right away, and begin accepting auditions to produce your audiobook for eventual sale on Audible.com, Amazon.com and iTunes.
