I am so excited about this month, so much is going on (my birthday, etc.), but let me start it off. October is Black Speculative Fiction month. What is that? Well, let me break it down for you, BSF is a term coined for all fiction based in the genres of fantasy, Sci-Fi, Steampunk, Horror, and more, based on sharing a Black experience.
Like with Sin Eaters, my book falls into these varied genres, SE is fantasy, with a touch of Horror and plenty of romance. So celebrate this great month with me. You won’t be disappointed. Visit your local library, or shop at your local bookstores, and support the plentiful authors listed below.
Also, this month is when I will be visiting the OOSA Pajama Jam event. Come Party with your FAVORITE readers Oosa BookClub in Saint Louis, MO.
