(color emphasis mine because that's what excites me the most -- someone there must have looked at the book and liked something. unless it was just random )As an ACX Producer you may be eligible to receive a bonus payment - we call them "Stipends" - when you complete an audiobook as part of a Royalty Share deal. Basically, ACX will pay you a per-finished-hour fee in addition to the royalties you earn from sales of the audiobook. We are offering this bonus to encourage Producers to try out ACX's innovative Royalty Share option. Titles are selected for stipend-eligibility because they have especially strong sales potential to audiobook customers.
