October is Black Speculative Fiction Month Pt. 2
It's October again and you know what time it is again? Black Speculative Fiction month!! This year it's kind of slow due to behind the scenes i.e. life happening. However, to update you all, I'm still working on my Steampunk novel and have romance novel to finish behind it.
There are new reviews for both books on Amazon. If you enjoy leaving reviews I ask that you also do the same at Barnes and Noble, Walmart, Goodreads, and other places where you might purchase the books. The movement is steadily growing, hopefully more buzz will draw more attention. I thank you all so much for leaving the reviews you do.
Beyond that, October is Black Speculative Fiction month. What is that? Well, let me break it down for those who are new, 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 books 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.
