Women of Color in Romance with Rebekah Weatherspoon @WOCInRomance @rebekahwsm

Hey, everyone! Some of you may recognize Rebekah Weatherspoon's name from when I interviewed her last year.  Since then, she's published a few more awesome books (seriously, go read the FIT trilogy--hot!) and has been hard at work on a social media presence designed to help promote women of color in romance writing.I'll stop chatting now and let her tell you a bit about it!First off, congrats on finishing the FIT Trilogy and on the well-deserved awards it’s won. Sated was a fantastic book, and a fitting end. I loved the little bonus scene with Grant at the end, too. Woo!  *fans self*How did you come to start WOC in Romance--the FB page, Twitter, tumblr, etc.?I was seeing a lot of pushes and promo for diverse YA books, but I wasn’t seeing any place that was specifically set up for Authors of Color. I wanted to create that space.Do you run the sites by yourself, or do you have help?...

Land of Enchantment!

Happy weekend, everyone!Sorry for the radio silence over the past couple of weeks--oh, who are we kidding? You guys are sadly used to me not posting things for long periods of time--but the reason for my not-posting this time is quite different.We've moved clear across the country to New Mexico where my amazing hubs will be starting a new job soon! We're settled for now until we find a house we like.New Mexico's state flagAlso, in other good news, I ordered a new computer! It should be here in the next few weeks (I hope). I can't wait, especially since the one I'm currently typing on sounds like a chainsaw and gave me a dire warning this morning when I turned it on. I think it knows its days are numbered...I'm looking forward to getting back to work (both writing and editing) and also hunting down a romance writer's group here. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the lack of humidity...

Interview Time with Rumer Haven!

It's a very important day for Rumer Haven--her very first novel, Seven for a Secret, has its book birthday today! *cheers* In honor of that, she's going to tell you a bit about herself and her writings.Take it away, Rumer!You and I have been friends for a while, but tell these lovely readers about yourself!I’m a Chicago gal living in London with my husband. Professionally, I started out in finance, but after pulling a 180 about a decade ago, I went from instructing how to write and critically read fiction to writing and editing it myself. As a daughter, sister, and auntie, I am crazy-close with my family, which is the major drawback of living overseas, but I love London, too, and travel a lot. Beyond that, I’m a sentimental schmuck, part-time hermit, and binge-watcher who is easy to amuse and difficult to offend.No wonder we get on so well. ;-) Yay, for part-time hermits!I always like to ask, what are...
