Black Bloggers Aren’t Supportive? Chile, Bye

This is not a musings but a PSA: We exist! We outchea! We support authors (black and others) who tell our stories and represent us in their narratives. The sentiment that we do not is bullshit. I will admit that we do not always have firsthand knowledge of a new release or project because we’re often indirectly (or not) excluded because our social media presence isn’t large enough for a writer’s or publisher’s liking or there’s this ridiculous belief that black women (or people) don’t read.

I am proud to be part of a collective of black women bloggers. We all maintain separate blogs (which I encourage you to follow and support), but we’ve formed a sisterhood beyond blogging where we actively discuss the state of black fiction in all its forms. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you know I concentrate specifically on romance, but my blogging sisters represent the black narrative in all its genres. WE EXIST!

If you are a blogger who reps black fiction and black womanhood in fiction, please link in the comments. Make your presence known!

I’ve given you four black bloggers who will rep your black narrative. Four is better than none. And while you’re at it, join our Goodreads group, The Black Bookcase. I post romances, old and new, every Tuesday and Friday, but we represent all genres of fiction that feature black women in a leading role.

  1. Although few, you, both Cocos, Monlatable Reviews, and Women Of Color in Romance, have been a tremendous support to my career.

    I appreciate every spotlight, every review, every shoutout, and every repost you take the time to share with your audiences.

    Thank you!💋

  2. Gloves are off your hilarious:) So many bloggers have bit the dust this stuff can be exhausting . But discovering so many black readers and bloggers have made me so excited. So I feel you on the gloves off. Just makes a person excited to review again… sometimes all the complaining from others make you forget why you loved it.
