Wow I can’t believe it’s been a whole 2 months since our last post. Proud to say it’s for good reason! We’ve been writing up a storm! Our first release The Mark of Noba, has been our greatest accomplishment to date.
While it’s easy to feel like YA is a hard market to release a book in we’re so glad we allowed it to be our first born and our introduction to the world of writing but for the year 2016, we were planning a crap load of adventures and we hope anyone who’s with us supports us in our new venture in Romancelandia.
So what is it about romance that made us want to write romance? Hmm…it’s a number of things.
For one, Guinevere and I are not seeing the women and men we want to root for in romance. And that’s just depressing.
There’s no shortage of billionaires, bikers or alpha males but what if the kind of stories you desire are about real people going through real relationship problems?
What if the kinds of characters we want to read feature Afro-latinas, American Africans or black women outside the typical African American experience?(Hello Afro-Brits anyone?)?
What if just maybe we want to read about men and women who have regular jobs and aren’t making people sign a contract just to “be” with each other?
I’ve been reading a ton of romance lately and sadly I’ve found very few authors who have several stories I flat out love. But I have faith and with 2016 we hope to bring you 11, YOU READ RIGHT, 11 new stories with romance as it’s center focus ranging from YA, NA and even adult reads.
We know, we know 11 books? That’s one hell of a goal but the truth is, we’ve had these stories hanging around for years and now finally have the courage to release them, including The Mark of Noba’s awaited sequel The City of Fallen Stars, which will be available Summer 2016.
(Don’t you just love the cover? Tetra is spitting something fierce, compay!)
But omg, how could I forget December 8th we’ll be releasing our first real life New Adult Contemporary Erotic Romance(sorry kids this one does include sensual themes so if The Mark of Noba’s more your cup of tea, you might wanna skip this one.) called Same Page. SEE!
Check out the blurb:
Naima vibed with Timothy from the first moment they met. Attraction wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did with no time to turn back.
Timothy knew better. But that kiss made him forget about his girlfriend and he would do anything to get another chance to kiss those lips.
Can two close friends be on the Same Page in this “Brown Sugar meets Love Jones” Interracial Erotic Romance!
This one has us shook to be out there because it doesn’t follow a typical romance theme of two unattached people falling in love without problem. It actually centers on a situation I’ve been in myself, falling for the right guy just not at the right time. I’m sure some folks can relate but I know others are against altogether, either way when we decided that romance was a venture we wanted to unlock, we asked ourselves:
Do you want to trail blaze or do you want to follow the obvious tropes?
Ding, ding, ding! We took the first one for $700, lol. So we hope and pray you’ll take this journey with us!
What are some of your goals for 2016?
