My great book-to-audiobook adventure via ACX began nine months ago. It's a pleasure to report that I am now responsible for four audiobook titles live on Audible, iTunes and Amazon.com. First was Elisabeth Gray's interesting rendition of Christmas and the Other Grandmother, recalling a memorable day I spent with my father's mother, going to her large family's annual holiday dinner. Next came No Instructions Needed, Charles Kahlenberg's evocative reading of my husband Robert's vignettes of the toys and pastimes of his boyhood. Next to appear was Suzie Vail's warm yet businesslike narration of Networking for the Career-Minded Student. Now, hot from the postproduction suite, is Ken Cohen's fresh and intuitive read of The Japanese Tea Ceremony and the Shoguns.
Working with Elisabeth, Chas, Suzie, and Ken has been a pleasurably creative experience, one I'd highly recommend to other authors. Apart from anything else, hearing your words interpreted by a professional is enlightening.
ACX is a great connecting point for rights holders and narrators. Read More
