Cover Reveal: We Deserve to Exist: An Inked in Gray Anthology

It’s been a hot minute but it’s finally time to talk more about this exciting project! I submitted a short story months ago and was accepted to be part of this anthology. No Monster of Frankstein will be in this fantastic collection and I’m honoured to share the pages with all these other talented authors. The anthology now has a cover! And we’re looking for ARC readers!

The world is not kind. It never was. Fear, jealousy, and anger fuel the actions of those who wish to assert their power and eliminate those they deem unworthy. There will come a time of reclamation—whether by force or by empathy—when those tides shift, a balance reborn. It must start somewhere. The reclamation of self, of culture, of heritage, and of our world starts within. No longer will those around us decide if we deserve to exist.
