Audible Launches ACX, a New Audiobook Publishing Platform

Today marks the opening of Audiobook Creation Exchange, Audible’s newest project.

This is more than simply an audiobook publication platform. It’s designed to bring together authors (who want to release their books as audiobooks) with the actors, studios, and publishers that are needed to make it happen.ACX also enables automatic distribution to major audiobook stores like iTunes, Audible, and more. And it really is designed to recruit all the participants. There are active registration buttons for everyone from authors to narrators and studio pros.

Do you know what this is? Amazon is side stepping publishers again and going straight to the authors. Of course, Amazon has owned an audiobook production company for some time now, but this is the first that it’s reached out to authors directly.
