Audible.com Announces A Tenfold Increase In Audiobooks Produced Through The Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX)

Stocks in this article: AMZN

Audible.com, the world’s largest producer and seller of digital spoken-word entertainment, today announced that the Audiobook Creation Exchange, the online audiobook rights marketplace and production platform it launched in 2011, produced ten times as many audiobooks in 2012 as it did during its debut year.

“We are thrilled that our vision for ACX has been embraced and that the system is working,” said Jason Ojalvo, Audible VP Content Creation. “It is wonderful to see so many authors (and actors) finding success on ACX, giving new voice to their work and expanding their audience too. The success of the Audiobook Creation Exchange has proven that every audio right has value, and that in 2013 there’s every reason for all authors and rights holders to make sure their books are available in audio.”

Ojalvo added, “The prodigious output of quality audio titles from ACX in 2012 surpassed the number of titles added to the Audible store in 2012 from our top three audio providers combined. We’re also proud of the fact that the average star rating of ACX titles as awarded by discerning Audible listeners matches those of leading audio publishers.”

ACX’s audiobook production platform allows authors, their agents and publishers access to the thousands of talented actors and studio professionals who bring books to life in audio. ACX enables online auditions and project management systems, and features programs to help authors learn how to narrate their own books. Rights holders can hire a narrator or producer, or create entrepreneurial partnerships with shared royalty structures that allow audiobooks to be produced without upfront costs. When an audiobook is created, ACX includes instant access to Audible.com’s digital distribution platform, and rewards authors and producers with a graduated royalty structure that can top out at 90%. ACX also provides sales acceleration tools that publishers, authors and narrators can use to earn special bonus royalties for sales they help generate.
