    Hello I’m Royal Jaye – Audiobook Narrator and Voice Over Talent
    When will there be a category for African-American Audiobook Narration? I have narrated and produced audiobook titles of African American Authors. Currently, I am working on E. N. Joy’s “Ordained By The Streets”, Curtis Mark Little’s “After Obama” and T. M. Lawrence Derek Chase Action-Adventure Mystery Series 1st title “Chasing After Trouble”. The rest of my work can be heard on Audible.com.
    Just wanted to make sure ALL Literary Avenues are represented from print to AUDIO.
