Next Chapter (https://www.nextchapter.pub) informed its authors that ACX (Audiobook Creation Exchange) has closed NC’s account—with no warning.
Moments later, ACX advised the publisher that there’d been a copyright infringement of one of their titles, yet provided no proof of said infringement. Moreover, outstanding royalties won’t be paid; as Next Chapter authors, we’re now cut off from our books while ACX continues to make money from us.
ACX, for those not in the know, is a publishing platform, that allows professionals to connect and create audiobooks; there are thousands of titles in a sundry of genres (https://www.audible.com/ep/ACX).
NC will be investigating legal options. Hopefully, all will work out in everyone’s favor.
