Should Love Be Color Blind?

by on July 12, 2014

Good Evening,

I was trying to think of a post to run, one I hadn’t really expressed knowledge or information of. I thought Hmmm, let’s talk about IR Romance and MC Romance. As you know I belong to IRMC Books and run the interview portions. I love everything IR because well I’m am a product of race mixing 😛 These days I think most people are 😛

When you search on sites to find a new IR book what do you expect to see?

Black Male/White Woman

Black Woman/ White Male

Those are the two most common combinations you can observe by looking on the shelves at book stores or see when you open the IR section of any publisher or distributor.

To this day I still believe IR get’s the short stick as a niche, when it should really be it’s own category and not just shoved in the middle of contemporary romance.


What about all of the other mixtures of races? They too fit under the IR category but are not as widely known or seen.

How about a White Male/Hispanic Woman

African male/Black Woman

Hispanic Woman /West Indian Male

The list can go on and on since there are so many diverse couplings of individuals that the ideas for stories are endless. While I love writing my strong black female heroines and their counterparts of a different race, I also love writing other cultures and ethnic mixtures.

It’s odd that in America everyone is in a distinct classification.  If I’m right, Canadians are just Canadians, and not separated by any skin color. Here we are what our culture is and we’re judged by that and much more.

Should we be writing on the basis of skin color or should we be writing about love and the journey it takes for the hero and heroine to get there. Because when it all boils down, love is colorblind.


Coming Soon: My IR Rock Romance Kiss Me Deadly

When Sameera Kattan’s band Final Regret gets signed, she is over the moon with excitement. Getting the hang of her change in occupation is overwhelming., not to mention the past she shares with, her longtime friend Jimmy, the lead guitarist for Crimson Rage. Their past is a complication she isn’t sure how to straighten out. She finds herself out on tour with a broody male who goes from hot to cold in seconds, putting a strain on their renewed friendship.

Jimmy O’Riley can’t function with Sam around. Seeing her is like a ray of sunshine and a knife in the gut at the same time. Jealousy clouds his judgment whenever a man lays hands on what should’ve been his years ago. Endless liquor and fast women fail to bring him the distraction he needs to survive. One thing he knows for sure is, a tour bus is no place for them to put ghosts to bed.

25 word tag –When past regrets collide with present circumstances heart strings may need some fine tuning before the sweetest melody of all can be shared.
