Women’s History Month 2021 + Fun New Projects

Hi friends! Happy March! We’ve ideally got some posts planned – and maybe highlighting some older posts too. šŸ™‚

Anyway! As always, I’m hoping to find people to write guest posts for the [Smithsonian] Heritage Months, for this year and future years. So if you’d like to write something for Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (which is also Jewish Heritage Month), Pride Month, Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month (this one is more who you go by/the ~government titles can be a bit archaic), or Native America/First Nations Heritage Months, we’d love to have you.Ā 

You don’t have to be Black/APIA/LGBTQ+/Latinx/Native to write a guest post – if you are, you’re free to write about anything. We just want to celebrateĀ you. If youĀ DO NOT have to fall under the umbrella of one of those months, then we ask you write something relevant – discuss a holiday, cultural event, food, historical or important figure, etc.

As for the new project(s) … well, what’s life without trying to take on too much?

These are some things I’ve been considering for more than a decade … one will ideally take place annually, and one will happen as it happens. >.> I don’t want to spoil the surprise until it happens though… but in order for it to happen, we do need people!

AND SO! If you’re a romance writer or readerĀ and have a sense of humor … we’d love for you to join us! One thing is really simple and open to everyone … the other … more for authors – a chance to have some fun with their writing and also highlight books of their choice. If you’re interested in either, please leave a comment for me to contact you – or reach out via the handy dandy contact form.

Thanks all!

 

On Randomness, Diversity, and Smithsonian Heritage Month Posts

Hi friends! So there’s as usual a ton going on … but I spent most of last week in New York, and am in fact still in the state, although no longer in the city. That’s the me update, and there’s a lot of talk and tea spilling, and general … follow up and fall through. We’ll see if any of that comes out here.

NY Met

What I want to say here and now is that I’m looking for romance authors and readers to guest for the upcoming Smithsonian Heritage Month posts for the remainder of 2015. They are Hispanic Heritage Month, and American Indian Heritage Month. I know race/ethnicity is a lot more complicated than those labels and they might not even be the preferred ones, but that’s what the National [Smithsonian] labels are, and that’s what I’m using to keep things consistent.

So, if you are a Hispanic and/or Latino romance reader or writer, or Native American, I would love to have you be a guest for the Heritage Month 2015.

Along those lines, I’m looking to schedule into 2016. We’ve got Black History Month (February), Women’s History Month (March), Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (May), Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15), and American Indian Heritage Month (November). What I want to do in 2016 is open it to anyone not just readers or authors of each specific ethnicity. Since this is a book blog, I want a[nother] focus to be if you’ve ever read a book with such characters that left an impression on you. I’m still working out the details, but I’m looking for people, so if you’re interested, please let me know.

Thanks lovies! I hope to be back to a more regular schedule and content soon!

Till next time, xoxo.
