How do I communicate with the author/rights holder?
Each audio file uploaded to the Findaway Voices workflow contains a commenting system to chat back and fourth with the opposite party during the audiobook production process.

Each time a new comment is added, the opposite party will receive an email notification.
Please note that for Marketplace Productions the process is the same.
