The audiobook industry has come a long way when it comes to diversity, but there is still so much room to grow! Investing in stories that bring listeners diversity through the characters, narrators and authors, was always one of our missions. From talent to production, our company prides itself in creating and publishing content that encompasses diversity as we look into not only creating more stories, but also having the talent that fit the narrative involved throughout the process.
In August 2020, we launched Nubian Audio; an imprint of award-winning production company The Audio Flow -Amplifying Black Creatives through audio publishing, casting and production. We have collaborated with many performers and authors to give listeners authentic voices.
WE TELL STORIES
IN LIVING COLOR
"Nubian Audio was instrumental in helping bring my book to audiobook life. Jocqueline was very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable, and she walked me step-by-step through the process. She was always available and timely with any questions I had. I received great choices in narrators, and she secured the talent I requested. The process itself felt seamless to me. She and Danielle made sure the production was in top tier shape. I will definitely use the production company again."
~ Untamed, film producer and author of The View 2
"Jocqueline M Protho was and still is a woman of her word. Working with her has been A+. Everything she promised us, she delivered on time. Thus far, this has been one of the best experiences we've ever had in the book industry working with a publisher/producer. She presented us with a fair contract for our book to be made into an audiobook, and even upped the ante, adding subsequent books in the series. She included us in the selection process for the book's narrators, and on the post-production audio revisions."
~ Noelle Vella, Co-Author's of The Witches of Salix Pointe Series
Jocqueline and Nubian Audio are masters at what they do! I met Jocqueline years ago at a book event, and knew she was dedicated to craft, as well as kind, trustworthy, and ready to make her mark on the creative world. When I found out that her company produced audiobooks, I knew the project I wanted to partner on. My book series is so dear to my heart. I wanted to work with the right company on it. Nubian Audio did not disappoint! They found the PERFECT narrator for my The Blazing Star series, created a flawless, professional product, and made the entire process easy. I can't thank Jocqueline enough for making my dreams of having the perfect audiobook come true!"
