Hey, peeps! I hope your holidays were merry and bright. Now, it’s time to get down to bidness… I struggled (and still do, truthfully) mightily with deciding if I want to continue with this blog. This is a labor of love, and as I continue to say, it’s one of the few blogs that exclusively features black heroines in a romantic lead. And that, my friends, is what keeps me going. This ain’t a race thing as much as it is a reality thing. I make no apologies or concessions for that, and that’s all I’m going to say on the subject unless I feel the need to clap back at some supreme ignorance…
So…what can you expect here in 2017?
- Fewer posts. Previously, I made every effort to post anywhere from 4-5 days a week, including a weekly Monday Musings post. Now, it’s looking like 3-4 days a week, maybe less. And there won’t be a Monday Musings post every week, either. As my professional and side hustle careers continue to advance, I have less and less time to devote to the things that, frankly, don’t generate income or overall happiness for me (Ouch! But it’s the truth!)
- Features and spotlights galore. So many good authors and stories out here that need a platform.
- Blind reviews. What’s this? I don’t like trashing a book publicly, even if it deserves it, but sometimes, I’ll read a book that’s sooo bad, it deserves a verbal tongue-lashing. I won’t name the book or the author, but I will flame that story to cinders, and if you’ve read it, you’ll probably figure it out anyway.
I hope you’ve backed and/or downloaded all of your purchases because as of 12/31/16, you are hella short if you didn’t. And poor authors…Heard y’all got the shaft (no pun intended) too.
