Publisher's Summary

Thanks to a revolution in the audiobook production business, audiobooks are now well within reach of independent authors. In fact, through ACX, the Audiobook Creation Exchange, you can have your book turned into a professional quality audiobook with, amazingly enough, no upfront costs at all.
It can be hard, though, to recruit the right narrator for your audiobook - the web is full of stories from authors who tried and failed.
Now, an experienced, full-time audiobook narrator takes you to the other side of the microphone to reveal the strategies and tips that will attract the best available talent on ACX to create a winning audiobook for you.
I'll take you step by step through the process, show you the key elements - I call them the Three Cs - that will convince me (or another fabulous narrator) to produce your audiobook. I'll tell you what to include in your book's listing on ACX and what not to include.
I'll walk you through exactly how I evaluate a potential project, how to evaluate potential narrators, and how to promote your audiobook for best results.
I'll even give you a backstage tour of how an audiobook is created, from pre-production to final quality checks.
All in about two hours! Two hours from now you could be well on your way to easily adding another revenue stream to your bank account, with no upfront investment, all from work you have already done when you created your book!
I'm a full-time professional audiobook narrator, and have delivered nearly 200 hours of finished audiobooks on the ACX platform.

Interesting even if you not a author

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes especially if they listen to lots of audio books or an author.


Any additional comments?

Have you ever thought how a audio book gets made? Why some audio books sound great while other are sometimes lacking in production or sound? How are Audible books priced and who gets paid what? I'm not an author but I listen to many hours of audio books per week and this audio book finally shed some light on things I've always wondered about when it comes how my audio book is made.
