35+ Female Romance Authors Of Colour-FREE ROMANCE BOOKS #freebooks #romance #blackgirlmagic #amreading

colorful-1325264_1280.png

I am so proud to join forces with more than thirty five female  romance authors of colour around the world, between November 2019 and January 2020 to show case our work to bring some #blackgirlmagic and #browngirlmagic to the world of fiction. Women in general have had it hard historically, and sometimes we still do have to fight hard for our voice to be heard.

In  the literary world the female voice of colour is underrepresented in books, as characters, and also as published authors by the big publishing houses. No one can dispute that. It’s a fact when it comes to finding agents and approaching publishers ninety percent of the time women of colour are pitching characters that reflect what we would would like to read more about, for example crafting leads with darker skin, and females reflecting what we see in the mirror, or  just our experience as people of colour to people who  many find it hard to  really understand or even try to understand a different point of view, as they are from a different background and it’s not ‘normal’ to have a lead hero or heroine with skin darker than their own.  So therefore the agent and publisher loves to feedback that they ‘can’t connect’ with the characters or stories. There is also a serious case of  a lack of  agents of colour to open the doors to diversity for us. Therefore what chance do women of colour stand when our work is rejected left, right and centre because  1. the ‘gatekeepers’ don’t reflect us 2. or wish to try and take a ‘risk’ by understanding something different 3. we are seen as just ‘urban/street lit writers’ like we can’t write different mainstream genres with no drug dealers, gangsters and baby momma drama. 

Many talented and bestselling female authors of colour have spoken out about the unfairness  with getting our voices heard by the bigger publishers. Such as New York Times Bestselling Author Ms. Alyssa Cole.  A  woman of colour herself who has managed to kick down the door to the big five publishers, as a romance and Sci-Fi author and make a real name for herself as a successful author with characters outside of the norm, and has vocalised her experiences loudly. 

Let’s not forget women of colour who are writers don’t just write about characters that reflect us, we can and do  include characters from ALL backgrounds if we want. We can  cross over. So in order to spread the word, love, diversity, and #blackgirlmagic and #browngirlmagic between November 2019 and January 2020  I am heavily  invested in supporting my fellow  female romance authors of colour around the world in this group. I urge you  to test drive a new author, a female author of colour she could be Black, Hispanic,  Latino, of mixed heritage, Indian,  Asian Chinese  or something else magical with free books up for grabs on the below link. You’ll be transported to StoryOrigin and see a wonderful array of books to grab. What are you waiting for? Take a peek…

Romance

fORBIDDEN.jpgWhen Luc stumbles on Anastasia at a nightclub, it shatters everything he thought he knew about her. Their chance meeting sparks an alliance between them, and before he realizes it, he finds himself keeping her secrets. Before long a relationship blossoms between them, and Luc finds himself in an impossible spot—Anastasia is his friend’s little sister, and keeping their relationship a secret means risking the only family he has ever known. It doesn’t help that he and his friends run the South’s most notorious drug cartel. Forbidden is the tale of Anastasia and Luc’s tumultuous relationship, a story riddled with forbidden love, drugs, guns and all the twists and turns you’d expect from an Iris Vu novella. Buckle up, you’re in for a wild ride! If you’ve already read Spiked, Forbidden sheds light on the tenuous relationship between Aaron and Luc. If you haven’t read Spiked, Forbidden is a prequel to the Pink Diamond series. (Read the first chapter of Spiked FREE at the back of this book.)

African American Romance- Recent release on Amazon

JBAn African American woman gets pulled into the world of submission and domination by her Dominican employer but is she cut out for it?

When Jada Simmons goes for an interview to be the personal assistant of mystery writer Javier Rodriguez, she encounters a man who is sexy and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Southern girl is startled to realize she’s craving for her alpha male boss by the minute and, despite his secret ways, finds herself possessed to find out more about him.

Unable to resist Jada’s curves and personality, Javier begins desiring for his personal assistant, too—but it can only be done on his own terms requiring submission.

Shocked yet mystified by Javier’s erotic tastes, the girl from Atlanta hesitates and Javier has no time to waste.

If Jada agrees on a daring, passionately erotic physical affair, she’ll discover Javier’s secrets while exploring her own.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, A Papi Got Me by Just Bae is an erotic fantasy that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

Then, a Representative from each province in the queendom will be sent to Castle Wrenbrook to have his opportunity to prove to the princess he’s worthy of sharing her chambers–and her heart. The task of choosing just one man to be with is daunting to Kit already, even though she has years before she’ll be called upon to make that choice. Even now, when three of her guardsman share her bed (one at a time) she can’t imagine having to name just one to spend the rest of her life with. How will she ever do so when it’s her time to Choose? The idea that she won’t be able to choose begins to percolate in Kit’s mind. Will she be able to come up with a way to keep all of the men she cares about and still sit on the throne?

Told in three complete novels, this series is intended for mature readers over the age of 18. Explored by the Princess is a 15000 word novella that takes place after chapter 8 of Chosen by the Princess but does not need to be read before starting the series.
