I haven’t had a problem with people falsely claiming any of my books to put up on ACX, but it’s cropped up in enough writing circles to warrant doing so. I do have a few to claim anyway, so I figured a brief tutorial might be in order.
Step 1: Go to acx.com
Step 2: create an account if you haven’t yet (this is usually your amazon creds)
Step 3: top right corner should say Add Your Title
Step 4: Search for your book by your author name or the ASIN.
Step 5: Click the purple This is My Book button
Step 6: If you actually have audiobook files to sell, choose that, otherwise choose the purple continue button next to “I’m looking for someone to narrate and produce my audiobook.”
Step 7: Follow the prompts. I believe you have to sign ACX’s agreement and choose whether or not you want to be exclusive. (This can be changed later, but if you will go wide later, choose non-exclusive.) If you want it opened for auditions click that. If you don’t really want to make an audiobook, I think you have gone far enough to at least assert your rights to the title. It’ll just stay in limbo until you’re ready to deal with it.
Audiobook Promotions …
Many of my 44 audible titles are listed on Audiobooks Unleashed.
Whether you’re looking for mystery or suspense or fantasy, I’ve got a title for you. Free codes are probably on audiobooks unleashed.
Normal links go to audible. *The Amazon labeled links are affiliate links. That means I get a very small payment from Amazon if you go through with a purchase.*
Note: Filter by US if you’re looking for those codes as many titles are out.
Ones I think may still have US codes: Reshner’s Royal Ranger, Never Again, Innova, The Golden City Captives, The Holy War, Reclaim the Darklands, Eagle Eyes, Treachery Makes it Tense, Ashlynn’s Dreams Shorts, The Dark Side of Science, Ashlynn’s Dreams, Nadia’s Tears, Malia’s Miracles, and Varick’s Quest
There are plenty of UK codes, but not many US ones left.
