I was quoted the other day as saying that my books were for women of discriminating tastes. And I really feel as though that statement is accurate. The reason that I feel that this statement is accurate is because every once in a while I take a look at the profiles of the women on social media who support my work (ok, I stalk them). And I can really say is wow. They are amazing women doing amazing things all over the entire world, and they love my work. So it must be edifying in some way. And to be edifying to women who are basically conquers in their own right is like the self-esteem of a cook who feeds chef Ramsey (not to mention that life is very much like Hell’s Kitchen).
These women are mothers, grandmothers, single feisty women, doctors, lawyers, business owners, nurses and administrative giants, scientists, activists…I could go on. The point is that I realize that there is a big difference between knowing your market (which in bw/wm books is basically spelled out for you) and knowing your market, which is me trolling the social media sites to read posts and celebrate birthdays, new cars and even new relationships with my readers. So, I’m proud to say it again. I am an author of interracial romance for women of discriminating tastes
These women are educated, driven, successful warriors in their own right and they still like a little romance in their lives. I’m happy to provide the entertainment.
Let’s run the world.
