Virtual - Black Girl Love: Indie Romance Writers Panel with Alexandria House, Katrina Jackson, and Ines Johnson
Monday, February 12, 2024
We are so excited to chat with Independently published romance authors Alexandria House, Katrina Jackson, and Ines Johnson! As an all Black panel, we'll be talking about their journey to being self-published, the romance community, their books, and the rise of indie publishing in the last few years. And, just in time for V-Day - it's perfect! We hope you can join us.
Check out our author's websites on the best way to purchase their books.
About Alexandria House:
Alexandria House is a former RN turned full-time independent author who pens steamy, relatable stories about black love. Since 2016, she has penned and released 29 works including six series, two novelettes, several shorts stories, story compilations, and one poetry collection. Known for writing engaging dialogues and swoon-worthy male characters, most notably Everett “Big South” McClain of her McClain Brothers series, Ms. House has deemed herself a purveyor and proselytizer of black love. Her books consistently land atop Amazon’s African American Romance bestsellers list and she is the recipient of many reader-driven awards.
Her books have been included among other “must-read” lists published to sites such as Shondaland, Oprah Magazine, and BookRiot. She is also the author of two Audible Original projects.
When she’s not engaging her readers on social media, you can find this Arkansas native writing her next bestseller or feeding her fashion addiction.
About Katrina Jackson:
Katrina Jackson…has a PhD in African American and African Diaspora history. She's a professor by day who writes erotica, erotic romance, women's fiction, and historical fiction in her spare time. She writes racially diverse and often queer stories that show love and the world in all its beauty and colors.
About Ines Johnson:
Lover of fairytales, folklore, and mythology, Ines Johnson spends her days reimagining the stories of old in a modern world. She writes books where damsels cause the distress, princesses wield swords, and moms save the world.
Ines writes books for strong women who suck at love. If you rocked out to the twisted triangle of Jem, Jericha, and Rio as a girl; if you were slayed by vampires with souls alongside Buffy; if you need your scandalous fix from Olivia Pope each week, then you’ll love her books!
Aside from being a writer, professional reader, and teacher, Ines is a very bad Buddhist. She sits in sangha each week, and while others are meditating and getting their zen on, she’s contemplating how to use the teachings to strengthen her plots and character motivations.
Ines lives outside Washington, DC with her two little sidekicks who are growing up way too fast.
