Contemporary Romance,  E books

Each one, Reach One

I’m new at all this, and since I work fulltime as well as write, sometimes I don’t get out as much as I’d like, to check out what’s been going on in the world of writing and publishing, and how others are making a difference. But I wanted to note the double duty many African American writers have opted for (reviewing and writing, or reviewing and interviewing) and also to post sites that review multicultural or interracial romance.

Author Theodora Taylor is a writer/reviewer. Her site is here, and I’ll also list it in my sidebar: Theodora Taylor


Author Kish Knight is a writer/reviewer.


The link to her site is below, and I’ve already got it listed in my sidebar (Ms. Knight was kind enough to contact me about doing an interview after she purchased and read one of my novels) :



Dear Author is a site that periodically reviews IR books.

The link to the site is also on the Blog sidebar.


I’d just read of another site hosted by multiple authors, with a frequent commenter on Dear Author named Ridley, called Love in the Margins


Here’s the statement listed on their blog:

Love in the Margins is a group romance blog trying to hit on the love stories that represent us all. We welcome discussion and criticism as we read through the stories of those whose lives don’t fit into the neat and tidy box labeled “default.”



A few other sites I’ve recently come across are:

IRMC Books which stands for Interracial and Multicultural Books


The site lists new releases and also posts excerpts from IR and MC books


SheWrites Interracial and multicultural writers group



Interracial Romance World



I’ll come back and update this post a bit later with more sites, and I think I need to do a research piece on why AA authors end up doing double duty, but I’m going to end with this inspiring article that I read, which has given me a wealth of ideas and also lots  more to think about. The proceeds of my books are used to purchase additional film equipment, to have more independent, diverse representation on screen. Here’s another example of Where there’s a will there’s a way:


In Nigeria, Queens of Africa steal a march on Barbie
