Tempest and Verb Noire

Tempest and Verb Noire

I’ve seen a few more people make this mistake lately, thus I wanted to clear things up. A lot of people seem to think that I’m one of the founders of the indie press Verb Noire. But actually I am not.

I think this misconception arose because Karnythia, who is one of the bloggers at ABW, posted about it there, and there are a lot of people who still assume every ABW post = me. But indeed, I have three regular guest bloggers now (nojojojo and unusualmusic are the other two) and many occasional guest bloggers.

This is not to say that I am unhappy about being associated with Verb Noire. On the contrary, I think it’s the awesomest awesome that ever awesomed. And I do what I can to support the venture by promotion, spreading the word, etc. This is a Credit Where Credit Is Due thing. Karnithia and thwayoftheid are working their butts off to make it happen. I don’t want there to be any doubt who the fabulous black women are behind the project.

    Wait, do you mean it’s possible for there to be more than one fabulous black woman in speculative fiction at any one time?

    Is that even legal?
