One of the ACA's first manifesto aims is to get publishers to adopt the use of a general prep/information sheet. Who knows the inner most secrets and details of a new book? Yes the author and/or editor. Key information that a narrator needs to know could and should be easy to compile and made available without the narrator or producer having to reach out for help.
Our aim is to have this form become a key part of the commissioning process. At the point a title is commissioned for audio, the form is sent to the author/editor and they fill it out and it is returned to the narrator/producer IN ADVANCE of the prep time set aside.
Please take a look and let us know your thoughts. The draft version can be found here:
