For those that don’t know, I’m one of the founders of Colors in Darkness, a group of dark speculative fiction authors of color and authors who write and read characters of color. CID exists to provide support to authors of color in the speculative fiction genres of horror, paranormal, sci-fi, dark fantasy, and combinations thereof.
We also are a place to find new work to read if you enjoy seeing characters of color in the genres above.
In our Facebook group, we share calls for submissions, writing advice, and provide beta reading for these diverse stories and their authors.
We’re excited to announce our latest project, and anthology of stories from these authors, Forever Vacancy.
The pre-order link is on Amazon and the book will release on January 13th.

Amid the upheaval of the 1960s, the Kretcher Motel opened in a poor, desolate part of Atlanta. It still serves its original purpose: to lure those souls who are lost, who are troubled, who are evil…to itself. Check in to view these thirteen dark tales of horror, betrayal, fear, and wickedness, all featuring characters of color. You may never want to leave.
