#RomBkLove 2020: Celebrating Inclusive Romance during a Pandemic!
Maybe you haven't read in weeks, or maybe you haven't stopped reading since this all started. Either way I know you love to talk about books.
Tomorrow #Rombklove 2020 kicks off with a whole new crew of readers, reviewers and writers sharing their love for inclusive romance by writing about the different tropes, motifs and sub-genres of romance that most fascinate them.
Every day in May there will be a prompt tweet to kick off conversation and every week day link to an inclusive rec post full of fabulous books put together by the #Rombklove team.
This post will be updated each day, with links to all the rec posts, and an archive of the day's tweets.
How to participate?
Readers: Respond to the prompts! Share your favorite books, characters, scenes, or thoughts on tropes. Make sure to include the #RomBkLove hashtag with your tweet! If you have read and loved a book by LGBTQIA+, Disabled, and/or Authors of Color that fits the prompt please, please mention it. You might think everyone has heard of the book but I can guarantee you there are lots of people who still need to hear about it.
Authors: You are welcome to participate too, as fellow readers. The tag is not meant for self-promotion. Boost fellow authors, celebrate the community but do so in a way that respect reader spaces. Respect the conversation. Join in to rec the books you love that fit the theme/trope/prompt. Yes, you can say “I wrote a book with this trope” but please don’t spam the hashtag with generic promo.
