Hello beautiful readers,
February is just around the corner and along with it I’m going to begin what I like to call Friday Features. What are Friday Features you may ask? Well, let me tell you. February is Black History month. In celebration of this every Friday I will be doing a feature on a black fantasy writer. Now, I realize that there are way more than four black fantasy writers out there, but I hope this will begin to introduce you to new, amazing authors.
When I thought up this idea I took a look at my book shelves and I must sadly admit that I had maybe one or two black authors within all the books I owned and those weren’t even fantasy books. I thought that was odd considering the sheer number of fantasy books I own, but I also thought it was telling. I want more diverse stories and if you’re here you probably do to, but I wasn’t yet actually purchasing any of them. I have since bought at least one book from each of these authors that I will feature. If we want more diverse stories and more diverse authors then we must support those stories and authors.
