SAPAHM: Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Hi friends! If you didn’t know, May is APAHM! (Yes, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.) Sometimes you might also see APIA (Asian Pacific Islander American). Anyway, I think you know I’ve mentioned how I’m going to just “low key” do the Smithsonian Heritage Months from now on. What I am trying to do though, is cultivate lists of [romance] authors. Ideally, people can come to posts like this and look for diverse romance authors to try.

This is definitely not a comprehensive list. It’s just romance authors I know – whether from meeting them in person, having them as guests previously on ALBTALBS, or crowd sourcing the hive mind(s) of social media feeds. 

Without further ado, APIA Romance Authors. <3 I’ve also included links to their sites for ones I could find.
