Welcome to Sunday Roundup where I share some links of interest. I will try to make this a weekly thing, where we kick off each new week with some knowledge from the blogosphere.
Leslie Esdaile Banks aka L.A. Banks, passed away August 2, 2011 after a battle with adrenal cancer. She was 51. Banks was in part responsible for the flourish of the African American Paranormal boom with her acclaimed Vampire Huntress series.Tarajah from Rebel Artistry has a very nice write up about Banks titled Black People Read Science Fiction Too.
I came across an interview with author, Katrina Parker Williams on her newest release Trouble Down South and Other Stories. The questions asked are insightful. Check it out if you have the time.
There is a great write up and discussion on Romance University entitled, In His Shoes: Race and Gender in Romance by Wayne Jordan, where author Wayne Jordan talks about being a black, male romance writer. I would say this is a must read for all romance readers.
