I have an author friend, Tom Cirignano, author of The Constant Outsider, who made his book into an audio book himself. Here is his advise to me on what you can do with the program and it’s FREE! Drop Tom an email to hear his tape. site at ConstantOutsider@aol.com
Tom’s experience with ACX. You can do all kinds of tricks to fix and edit audio. Slow it down, speed it up, change the pitch of your voice, and more. If you screw up a sentence you can just re-say it and edit out the bad one. Some chapters I recorded 3 or 4 times. The ACX website tells you the program name and where to download it for free.

ACX is a marketplace where authors, literary agents, publishers, and other Rights Holders can connect with narrators, engineers, recording studios, and other Producers capable of producing a finished audiobook. The result: More audiobooks will be made.
ACX puts you in the driver’s seat. If you’re a Rights Holder, you choose how you produce your audiobook—whether on your own or by engaging a Producer on ACX—and you choose among two royalty models.
If you’re a Producer, ACX allows you to post a profile and be seen. Plus, you can be proactive and audition on ACX for posted titles.
If you already created an audiobook and just want to sell it, we can help you.
You’re Empowered If you’re involved in creating audiobooks, you now have a new way to work… and a new way to earn.
A Marketplace for You Anyone who holds the rights to an audiobook (a Rights Holder) can connect with the people who can get those audiobooks made (the Producers).
Earn Money with Audiobooks We make it easy for your earnings to add up.
How You Benefit Whether you’re an author, publisher, narrator, or studio professional, ACX makes life better, more creative, and potentially much more lucrative.
