Taking MY Books On Tour

Are You Ready for Transmedia?

Take your story beyond the page with new storytelling mediums. Opportunities are limitless; take for example audiobooks. The ability to download audiobooks to any device has created massive change in how they're consumed; your mp3, Bluetooth on your car's speaker or your I-phone. The growth curve in audiobook sales rivals the growth curve in e-books. Audiobooks are easy to download, adaptable to a busy lifestyle, and is a new way to enjoy books.
Amazon.com purchased Audible.com in 2008. It's the leading provider of premium digital spoken audio information and entertainment on the internet, offering customers a new way to enhance and enrich their life everyday.
Are you interested in making an audiobook out of your novel?
People welcome story-based communication and engage with content that entertains . You can hire a narrator to perform your story, or you can do it yourself. You know more about your story and characters than anyone. A bad narrator can ruin a great book. You can make a story and your characters can come truly alive in ways you'd never expect.
The ultimate length of the audiobook is determined by the length of the manuscript. A 94,000-word novel would be about 10 finished hours for about $200.00. The upfront cost would be $2,000.00.
ACX.com,(Audiobook Creation Exchange), is a marketplace where professional authors, agents, publishers and Rights Holders can post audiobooks rights that will be matched with narrators, recording studios, engineers, and other producers who will produce a finished audiobook for you.
If you own rights to your book, go to http://ACX.com, find a narrator, or narrate your own, find a producer and publisher, cut a deal and have it distributed digitally through Audible's channels(Amazon.com), Audible UK, and I-tunes. ACX does not include CD distribution. You can do your own and then use ACX for distribution.
Audiobook production is priced by finished hour. It takes two hours in the studio and many more hours to edit.
If your budget is low, you can use the ACX royalty share. Many ACX narrators are willing  to go for a royalty share instead of an upfront fee. If you choose a royalty share, the narrator gets 50% of that share. There is also a bounty program: If a consumer sign for an audible.com membership and orders your book, you get a $25.00 bonus
Some narrators are experienced and some are not. Before you decide to hire a narrator, listen to samples on audible.com( the top sellers.) You'll get a feel for what you'd like and dislike. When your audiobook is ready, you upload it to ACX, and within two or three weeks, it will appear on Audible, and then I-tunes, and Amazon.
