What I didn't expect and what actually made me sad was the amount of people that came to me to say that as a woman of color I wasn't writing like one. Not only were they discrediting the work I put in creating my book but they were disregarding all the paranormal writers of color that came before me and will come after me. Determined to prove those people wrong I decided to host a Paranormal In Color Online Book Fair to shine some light on the overlooked writers of color in the genre. I wanted to have a central location for other paranormal writers to gather together. Where both the authors and the readers of paranormal proved that just like with everything else in this world there are people of color representing here as well. Let me be clear the book fair is not meant to exclude those who happen to not be of color but is intended to give a platform to those that wouldn't normally have one. And yes I'm sure someone will still say that there is no need for an event like this when I could have just said a paranormal book fair. No need to continue a racial divide but the fact of the matter is as long as there are people that will question an author's credentials as a writer because of the color of their skin and the style of their books there will be a need for people to stand up and prove that those views are a perception and not a reality. I'm choosing to shine light on the reality by hosting Paranormal In Color.
