It's October and that means it's time for Blacktober Reads!!

Happy October and Happy fall! I have to admit that this is my favorite season. The colors of the leaves, the cooler weather, the decorations, homemade pumpkin pies, and Halloween, of course! I love it all! What I love most about the month of October is that it's time for...


What is Blacktober Reads?? I'm glad you asked. Black authors exist in all genres, including horror. And we've been writing in this genre long before Jordan Peele came along and arguably made being a Black horror writer en vogue.

Blacktober Reads aims to showcase the expansive variety of horror novels written by Black people that exist in the book world. So, every day during the month of October a different book in the genre is featured and, if you haven't guessed it yet, all the authors are Black!
