Audible.com launched a new service this month. It is called ACX, the Audiobook Creation Exchange. It is a way for authors and narrators to connect with the intent of narrating books. Since many books never even make it into the audiobook market, this could be a great way to expand the listening market. Here is a video that explains the service.
I like listening to audiobooks while I’m driving the two hours to visit family or when I’m working on a craft. I prefer to listen when my hands are occupied, because if they’re not, I’m probably asleep. I like the idea of more books made into audiobooks. I’d even be interested in becoming a narrator. I hope this project remains fair to both authors and narrators. Check it out!
