on Indies Unlimited:
A few years ago, I detailed my first experience with using ACX to produce an audio book of my non-fiction work. While the experience was positive, I let the lure of audio books lie fallow for quite a while. I was too busy writing, apparently. But in that writing, I hit upon an idea for a paranormal mystery series, which has become quite popular, and I began to rethink the audio book format. I know the series Outlander has done very well with audio books, so I thought, why not mine?
If you’re not familiar with ACX or the process, you can read about my initial foray here. I still prefer to contract with a narrator using the royalty share agreement for two reasons. One, it means no out-of-pocket expenses for me, and two, it means my narrator is also invested in the sales of the book, and so will do his/her part to promote it.
