Today I’m going to be walking through the step-by-step process of adding your audiobook to ACX, . This is the platform for audiobooks to go on to Audible, Amazon, and Apple. I’ve talked about recording audiobooks, having them narrated, and which platforms to use in the past. But today I am answering a popular questions which is, how do I actually go through the process of uploading my audiobook! Here is the exact process that I just went through.

A few caveats:
I recorded this audiobook myself, so I am not going through the process of finding, auditioning, or selecting a narrator.
I recorded this while my baby girl was taking her nap, so if I am talking fast it is because I wanted to get it all in before she woke up. For those of you who don’t know, you CAN control the speed of the videos you watch on youtube, there is a little button in the bottom corner
The book I am uploading is How To Write Your First Novel, my latest book in the Author Your Ambition series that was released earlier this year. If you have read the book, please leave it a review. Those watching this video have probably already written the book so if you know someone who might benefit pass it along.
I talk about audiobook distribution strategy on this channel and in Self-Publishing for the First-Time Author so if you want to learn more about that you can check out these videos or this book.

  1. For more information on self-publishing audiobooks, I have an entire playlist of videos on ACX and other platforms:

  2. Absolutely fantastic tutorial!

  3. @17:38 you are building your cover and flashed on your files and I couldn't help but notice a file used to submit to Ingram Spark (***2969 Perfect) and I wonder if you do use Ingram would you also do a YouTube vid on how to use that platform efficiently? Thanks!

  4. Gosh, I really could've used your excellent guides when I first decided to self-publish a few years back! Keep up the great work, M.K., and give your little girl a big hug for all of us!

  5. did you sign as publisher or author

  6. This video was very helpful thanks! Would you mind telling me if it was profitable after it was published on audible and amazon?

  7. Hi M.K. Thank you for this video. I have acx as a narrator but I don't seem to see this section of 'Title not posted' on my projects dashboard. Where can I find it please?

  8. Thanks MK. Great video. You gave the name of your own publishing company during the upload. Do you need a real company or can you establish your IP rights just in your own name?

  9. May I ask what are you using to record this video???

  10. Thank you for this step-by-step tutorial. You helped me get my very first audiobook listed. Now I just wait. I'm hoping it doesn't take the allotted 30 days for review. I'm a bit impatient. LOL. I guess I'll do some mindset work around that. 😉

  11. THANK YOU‼️‼️

  12. Hi, thank you for the tutorial. How do I upload a PDF that I want to have all the Disclaimer, the Reference Credits and the Legal notice of Copyrights included apart from the Audiobook?
    And secondly, I read that ACX will not accept an Audiobook unless you have it on Amazon. Is that true?

  13. After having to be rejected 5 times before my book finally went through on IngramSparks, I was shocked when my audiobook went through ACX the first try!
