None at the moment, I only have a poetry book out at the moment. But I have loads of books with black female MC’s as well as other WOC MC’s. I’ve created the covers and mapped out the central plot, but I don’t know, writing it isn’t easy. The ideas just aren’t flowing as easily.
Alrighty. You’re the boss ma’am.
Though i dont write it to offend. More like explaining/sharing. Because they said wp is a friendly community.
My story is sort of new. It’s written by me, a black female, and has a black female main character, in fact most of the characters are POC.
