We Deserve to Exist: An Inked in Gray Anthology
“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.”
After many months of hard work, my short story "What Remains," was selected as the winner for the 2022 anthology contest published by Inked in Gray. It has been a dream to work with the other creators on this project and bring our words to print! We are excited to announce the release scheduled for March 2023. Stay tuned for details!
"Wounded Birds" is a "short short" released by Allison in 2021 which was published in the online November issue of Scars and selected to be anthologized in Down in the Dirt in March 2022.
