Author Producing an Audiobook Using ACX (How To) Part 3

Hopefully you have already read parts one and two.  To my surprise my narrator finished the audiobook way ahead of the due date. Awesome! You will receive an email letting you know it is available for you to listen to and decide if there are changes you would like made. During your review of the audio files the narrator is unable to make any changes to these files. Each chapter is a separate link. This makes it easy for you to describe where you would like changes made. It also makes for easier listening by allowing you to listen to each chapter separately.

If you request changes to be made you will have to use the link in the box at the top right of the listening page. There are two links- request changes and approve audiobook. If changes are requested, it will need to be done here so the audio files can be released to the narrator to make the changes. This can't be accomplished with a simple email describing the changes you want because the narrator will not be able to access the files.

After the changes are made, you will receive the audio files back for your listening pleasure. Again you can approve the files or request changes. You can only request changes twice.  If you are unhappy with the finished product you can cancel, but be aware you may encounter some financial obligations. These are outlined in the ACX Audiobook Production Standard Terms 

Once you have approved the files, you will receive an email saying-You have approved the audiobook production of,  in my case, A SECRET LOVE. However, a payment of $_____must be made to the audiobook's producer. After the producer confirms receipt of your payment, we will begin distributing the audiobook of A SECRET LOVE to Audible, Amazon and iTunes. That's when the fun really begins.

You will have to contact the narrator for the accepted forms of payment. After you make the payment your next email will say- Good news! Your Narrator's name has specified that they have received payment for the production of "A SECRET LOVE". Thanks!

Now ACX will put the audiobook through a quick final quality control process, then begin distributing it to Amazon, Audible and iTunes. Barring any issues in the quality check, that process should take upwards of 14-20 business days.

Wow. More waiting. Stay tuned. I will keep you updated on the process. In the mean time  Want to Read it Now. A copy is waiting for you.
