How to create an LLC to publish Audiobooks on ACX when you don't live in the US, UK, Ireland or Canada?
ACX stands for Audiobook Creation Exchange and is part of Amazon.
The platform offers 3 services:
1) ACX is a platform that can be used by independent, indie publishers and publishers to turn their written book into an audiobook.
2) Independent narrators offer their services to authors and book writers to narrate and create an audiobook. So, the Indie-authors, writers, and publishers can search and hire the narrator with the right voice for their artistic work.
3) ACX´s publishes the finished audiobooks on Audible, Amazon and on iTunes so there are available for sale. Depending on the contract between the publisher and the narrator, ACX pays to both a commission per sale or pay only the publisher a fee per sale.
Audible is one of the biggest audiobook platforms in the US and in the UK. They are actively promoting their platform in the media and they offer all kinds of extra incentives to authors, writers, and publishers to make sure they those ACX above other available platforms.
This makes it the most interesting and profitable platform to publish your audiobooks on. Of course, there are also other platforms like the Authors Republic and Find Away voices which you can use the publish your audiobooks and distribute them to a lot of channels. But, until now those platforms turn out to be significantly less profitable.
So, the main question from Indie-Authors, writers, and publishers is: Is there a legal and approved way to publish audiobooks through the ACX platform while being a resident in Europe (outside the UK and Ireland), South- or Mid-America, Asia, or Australia or New-Zealand.
Well, in my opinion there is. And I am going to explain step-by-step how. In these blog articles and training videos´s am not only going to explain how but more importantly why. I will analyze the ACX official texts, the (US) law and use quotes from my CPA/Lawyer.
The fact that you are still reading, means this is applicable for you and that you want to publish your books which are currently published through KPD on Audible as well.
