Black History Month Blog Hop - Best Of WA Romance

Posted in:

The final post for the Black History Month Blog Hop, hosted by Reflections of a Bookaholic and Mocha Girls Read, is here! It's purpose was to give black authors, books, and those who support them a month in the spotlight. This week focuses on the "Best of" in Black literature (or authors) and this topic runs from February 26-29th.

I will like to showcase the authors of Romance Writers of West Africa (RWoWA) of which I am a member, amongst other fabulous authors. From the RWoWA Website;
Romance Writers of West Africa (RWoWA) is dedicated to the growth of African romantic fiction worldwide.

We are a support group for romance writers of West African origin and/or writers who write romantic fiction set in West Africa.

Founded originally with four members,  Kiru Taye, Lara Daniels, Nkem Ivara  and Myne Whitman on June 17, 2011, RWoWa’s major goal is the growth of romance fiction in West Africa. With the increasing demand for the African romance genre, RWoWA strives to support established and aspiring romance authors who emphasise African plot lines. All sub-categories in romance writing are covered: contemporary, historical, inspirational, paranormal and science fiction. RWoWa provides a platform where members, through networking, may polish and constructively critique works-in-progress, resulting in exceptional romance fiction for our reading audience, which is not only limited to West africa, but reaches out worldwide.

  1. I host a reading challenge and my first month was Nigerian readers and now I'm a fan and hope the other readers are also. Will love to do a repost of this on my new blog site.

    1. Please go ahead and do so, Sidne. Thank you.

  2. I wish I could get hold of these books... i m so faraway... :(

    1. Depends on where you are. Most of the books can be bought online as eBooks
