Stories of Fantasy Featuring Powerful Characters of Color
Mocha Memoirs Press is proud to present SLAY: Stories of the Vampire Noire — a revolutionary anthology celebrating vampires of the African Diaspora.
SLAY is a groundbreaking unique collection and will be a must-have for vampire lovers all over the world. SLAY aims to be the first anthology of its kind. Few creatures in contemporary horror are as compelling as the vampire, who manages to captivate us in a simultaneous state of fear and desire.
Drawing from a variety of cultural and mythological backgrounds, SLAY dares to imagine a world of horror and wonder where Black protagonists take center stage — as vampires, as hunters, as heroes. From immortal African deities to resistance fighters; matriarchal vampire broods to monster hunting fathers; coming of age stories to end of life stories, SLAY is a groundbreaking Afrocentric vampire anthology celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the African Diaspora.
A desire for Light. A mark for Dark. A fate that would change the world.
Sierra Grey is a Daughter of the Dark, simply put, she’s a bad witch. As good as she is at being bad, it never felt right to her. There was always the longing for something more, something she shouldn’t give two cents about, LOVE.
Unfortunately for Sierra, love was not something that could penetrate the icy exterior of the heart of a Daughter of the Dark. Just as she’d begun to accept that she was destined to be alone, everything changed.
Her new attraction to Horacio, a Light witch, goes much deeper than a physical attraction. Her budding feelings for him is not only against the law, but it puts a target on her head.
Will Sierra ignore the feelings she begins to feel and return to the Dark or will she risk it all for the chance of something more?

My dream is to write the stories I grew up loving with characters who look like me. I can remember as a little girl wondering why there were no black vampires, werewolves, and fairies in the stories I read. Well, now there are because I've written them! This is my passion and I'm overjoyed to be able to share it with the world.
