My books tell the story of Glory Bishop and her family. The novels were published in 2019 and 2021 as GLORY BISHOP and GLORY UNBOUND. The two-part story tells the coming-of-age of a Black Chicago teenager growing up in the 1980s. GLORY UNBOUND is a finalist for the CWA book of the year. My third novel, MARY NOT BROKEN, is the prequel to GLORY BISHOP and tells the story of Glory’s mother. MARY NOT BROKEN is published on Amazon’s Kindle Vella, one episode at a time, and is due out in paperback in 2023. I am looking for a narrator with the time and inclination to give voice to the entire series. On Findaway Voices and ACX the accent is described as American Urban. The stories have a lot of culturally specific dialect and references so I need a Black woman narrator.
All three stories are highly rated and I have had several requests for audio books. The publisher calls them Women's Fiction, Historical Fiction, and Literary Fiction. There are trigger warnings for a little bit of all the bad things (sex, violence, language, assault, religion, etc.). Nothing too heavy but the first two books are consistently rated for adults, though some reviewers have shared the story with mature teens.
I checked an audio-book calculator and the books are approximately 11, 13, and 8 finished hours.
As an author, I am not a social media influencer. I spend all of my time writing. As for marketing, I mainly use Facebook and Amazon ads, but am willing to learn.
I'm new at this so I'm not sure of a reasonable budget.
