When Black Women Fall Blog Tour

I always love diversity in books and want to encourage it whenever and where I can. I spy several good romances here.

When Black Women Fall in Love by Ines Johnson

Heartspell Media would like to welcome you to When Black Women Fall, a week long promotional tour of romance novels featuring African American heroines in the contemporary, historical, paranormal, new adult, and erotica genres.

Romance novels are increasingly featuring heroes and heroines of color, from Courtney Milan’s Brothers Sinister series to Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series. As society and its citizens increase in diversity so does the market. With more and more authors bypassing publishers and uploading these colorful romances on their own, starved readers now have a buffet of books to choose from.

On this tour, you will find that when black women fall in love it’s a sign of the times in these contemporary offerings.

  1. I saw this all over my twitter feed the past few days but didn't know what the heck it was lol

    Looks like I have a lot of books to check out :-)

  2. Very interesting. Now that I am thinking about it, I haven't read many romances with heroines that are African American. We certainly need more diversity.

    1. I agree. I see so many people get excited when there are more diverse books so I don't get why there isn't more.

  3. This is definitely one of the reasons why I love Nalini's books. Thanks for this list. I will check some these out.

    1. That is why she is on my wishlist. I just need to get to them. Trying to find the audios at my library.

  4. This is good spotlight for Black History month. Like Heidi said, I don't think I see many in romances, though I think sometimes it's just not brought to our attention. Still, we definitely can use more diversity.

  5. Yay for diversity! Love these and will have to check them out more in depth!

  6. Thanks for my weekend book assignment :/

    Happy weekend! :)

  7. Looks like a lot of good reads for just 99c each! Thanks for the heads up!
