Here’s How Audible Teaches Authors to Create Their Own Audiobooks

Audible’s publishing platform, Audiobook Creation Exchange, connects your favorite stories to the actors who can bring them to life! It’s been a valuable tool that’s helped produce 160,00 audiobooks already. Now, Audible is bringing that power to produce stellar audiobooks to more people through their ACX University program.

ACX University is a series of live broadcasts from Audible that aims to give authors and actors the tools and strategies needed to make great audiobooks for Audible’s platform. The first episode debuts at 5:30 p.m. October 28 and is titled “Transform Your Career: The Makeover Episode.”

In later episodes, ACX University will teach on topics ranging from marketing to finding your brand as an audiobook producer. They’re bringing in industry experts like Scott Brick, who’s narrated over 950(!) audiobooks, to give viewers valuable information about the industry. Jessica Hawkins, a USA Today bestseller, will also be leading a seminar on everything you need to do 90 days before and after your audiobook is published.

Of course,  voice actors hoping to get their start in the industry and authors who want to bring their books to life are the main focus for ACX University. But it will also be interesting to readers who are curious about how their favorite audiobooks get made. Personally, I’m excited to take a peek behind the curtain, and I’m hoping some of my favorite authors use ACX University to bring the sweet sounds of literature to my ears.
