In February 2015 I celebrated Black History Month by highlighting Black women who write romance novels with the hashtag #BlackWomenInRomnace. As the month came to a close, I knew I wanted to continue to promote our work, but I was also disturbed by the lack of works I was seeing by other women of color, Native and Indigenous women. The authors are out there, if you dig, but the internet can be intimidating and human beings are a mite lazy. We like to find everything in one place. So here we are, WOCInRomance, a place to promote Women of Color in romance fiction. This blog/movement is trans inclusive and open to gender fluid and non-binary authors as well.
What can you do?
I’ll do my best to get out and search for new authors and titles to share every day, but there is no way for me to find everyone. Have a favorite author? TELL ME!!! Have an author/or book you’re curious about? TELL ME!!!!
For now WOCInRomance will just be for general promotion (buy links and such), but if you’re a reader or author with a guest blog you want to share, please contact me. This about the authors and the readers. I want to get you all together so you can make sweet, sweet literary love.
You can find me via email at WOCInRomance@gmail.com or on any of the social media sites below. I hope to hear from you all soon! Cheers.
