Afrocentric Books


From the Publisher

Afrocentric Books is a publisher of fiction featuring characters of African descent.

We are a small press that is bent on changing the racial status quo in literature, particularly in Speculative Fiction. Surely white people aren’t the only ones living on alien planets or facing down dragons with a sword in one hand and a flaming ball of magic in the other?

We require at least one main character (not a secondary character, not a loveable sidekick, not an important supporting character; a MAIN character–hero or heroine) to be of African descent. We live in a diverse world and we would like to see today’s literature reflect some of that diversity.

If you’re an author with a great, polished story, immerse us in the colors of the African diaspora.


We are looking for novels of 70K to 140K words.
Occasional short stories for themed anthologies.
