Choose the books you want to audition for! Through ACX, you can find an unlimited number of potential acting gigs, and the audiobooks you produce will be available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.
Choose how you'd like to get paid for your narration work:
Follow our Video Lessons and Resources to learn how to set up a home studio then edit and master your audiobook before it goes up for sale. Or find a studio professional to help out with the recording, editing, and mastering.
Tag an unlimited number of samples in your Profile, based on accents, genre, and style. The more audio samples you include, the easier it is for authors to find you.
Choose a per-finished-hour rate, or choose to share 50% of royalties. If you're unsure, choose both.
Search for books you're interested in narrating and producing, and record a few minutes of the manuscript. If you're the Rights Holder's top choice, you'll receive an Offer.
Record, edit, and upload the a 15 minute checkpoint of the audiobook, which the Rights Holder will approve or provide feedback. When the sample is approved, record the remainder of the project.
To create a professional audiobook, you may want the guidance of other audiobook experts. If you need to hire one, or more, we have Independent Contractor Agreements you may use.
If you and the Rights Holder agreed on a Pay for Production fee, you will be paid directly by the Rights Holder. If you produced the audiobook as a Royalty Share deal, then you'll be paid based on 50% of the royalties on sales.
