Featured Site: Queer In Color

The Queer In Color site includes a variety of books, broken down by genres and sub-genres. Those works share a common thread: queer characters of color. The blog there features interviews and seeks to bring more attention to those characters and/or authors of color. There and in the About Us section, we also learn about the dedicated team and their reasons for creating Queer In Color.

I found the entire site both easy to navigate and a good resource for authors and readers. The webmasters generously included my diversity-themed scifi novels Degranon and Sons of Taldra on the page Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Fiction, putting my work in the good company of many talented writers.

Readers can sign up at Queer In Color for an email newsletter to read about new releases, free books, and more. The Twitter account Queer In Color also includes updates.

Now That We're Grown: Teaser 1 of 3

Gavin Hernandez and Peter Montoya meet before high school. Gavin admires how Peter never complains about being gay or using a wheelchair. During their senior year, Gavin takes profile pictures of Peter in that chair, but the gesture of good will leads to online bullying and a painful final stretch of school. Best friends slowly drift apart.

After college, they reunite in Dallas as more than friends. Gavin now designs facilities for people with physical challenges. Peter finds a job to match his business degree. The past might destroy their relationship, or their love might change their lives.

Now That We're Grown will begin appearing on Wattpad shortly after June 4, 2020.
