Audio book development
I set up an account. And then set my preferences for what type of voice I was looking for. This was all easily done by clicking drop down boxes, such as—Female, British ect. Post a sample of your script, and the people with the appropriate voice preferences will record an audition.
Auditions come into your ACX.com mail box for you to listen and choose from. The actress I picked had a posh/ boujee voice because my characters were mainly posh London girls. Picking the actress was the best bit for me—so much fun. You can also use your own actor, or do it yourself. Just upload the correct audio files and your good to go.
You can also choose a production company with multiple actors and actresses, music and sound effects. This is more expensive, yet an available option through ACX.com or you can find your own production company.
Your actress or actor will record your script chapter by chapter, you then listen as the chapters come in and approve. There are time dead-lines and all messages and payment is done via ACX.com portal.
The payment options are either: Pay to the actor in full and keep all royalties, or no payment and split royalties of your audio book with the actor 50/50. I chose to keep all the royalties and pay the actor in full, but if you do not have the money then slit royalties are a good option.
I personally had a fun time developing my audio book with ACX.com and recommend their services, yet there are other companies who can also do the same. So, google and do your research then have fun making your own audio book.
