FIFTH HOUSE COLLECTIVE
WE SUPPORT BLACK INDIE AUTHORS
Here at Fifth House Collective, we pride ourselves on being obsessed with books and reading. Unfortunately, we noticed there was a huge gap in the publishing world when it came to Black authors. It was even worse when you took a look at independent or self-published Black authors. There are many popular book subscription boxes readily available and they all have two things in common; A lack of Black authors and a lack of independent authors.
Fifth House Collective decided to step in and bridge that gap by getting self-published novels and comics/graphic novels into the hands of the public along with some nice goodies, too!
Each and every story that we offer in our box has been read and loved by us. We hope you enjoy them as well.
