What you can do right now

I hope this moment is a tipping point in helping to overturn the systems and institutions in our country that justify their existence via racist ideas and practices. As a white woman, I recognize my privilege and want to be part of the change. It’s an ongoing process of learning and unlearning.

If you want to help, but aren’t sure where to start, here are a few ideas and resources. (Feel free to share your favorites in the comments.)  

DONATE

Find a bail bond fund in your state and help free those protesting for justice: National Bail Fund Network

Support Black Lives Matter at the national level: Black Lives Matter. Or through your local chapter: Chapter Directory.

Support fair elections in the U. S. by giving to FairFight.com, started by former Georgia candidate for governor Stacey Abrams.

The NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund lets you choose where to direct your donation, or just pick “where it’s needed most.” They have lots of resources too.

There are so many more. Look for organizations in your city or state if you want to have a localized impact.

READ

Here are some of my favorite books by Black authors. If possible, try to buy them from a Black-owned or independent bookstore.

Fiction

  • An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole
  • American Dreamer by Adriana Herrera
  • Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
  • The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa
  • The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
  • Rafe by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Nonfiction

  • How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X Kendi
  • Becoming by Michelle Obama
  • So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo
  • Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine

SHOP

Look for Black-owned businesses online and in your community to support. A few sites/apps that may help:

FOLLOW

A small collection of people and organizations to follow to learn more about being antiracist and how you can help move the world toward racial equality. These are Instagram handles, but many of these accounts are active on other platforms as well.

  • @Blklivesmatter (Black Lives Matter)
  • @Nowhitesaviors (No White Saviors)
  • @Ibramxk (Author Ibram X Kendi)
  • @Ckyourprivilege (Check Your Privilege)
  • @Laylafsaad (Author and podcaster Layla F Saad)
  • @Ijeomaoluo (Author Ijeoma Oluo)

PROMOTE

Amplify, share, support, and promote Black voices and works.

VOTE

Check to make sure you’re still registered to vote in your state/territory, or register to vote now, at VoteSaveAmerica.com. Your voice matters. Be a voter.

TALK

Talk to friends and family about what’s happening, what you can do about it, and how to be part of the solution. Please, don’t ask your Black friends and family to help you figure it out, or vent your frustrations or fears to them. Start with the resources above and your favorite search engine.

LISTEN

Listen to what Black people are saying, about their experiences and what kind of help they need or want.

Spread the love. ❤️

84 Free Books

It’s my 25th wedding anniversary this week. ❤️ Obviously, our plans for a celebratory trip were scrapped, but I can’t complain because we’re together and that’s what it’s always been about.

Of course, with my husband teleworking, and our college senior home and remote-schooling until graduation, we’re really together. For someone who’s used to working from home by myself most days, I’m actually getting a lot more socialization than usual.

No complaints here!

In case you find yourself with more time on your hands than usual now that everything is closed, a group of (mostly romance) authors put together a bunch of free books for you to enjoy. With 84 books in several genres to choose from, you’re sure to find something great!

Some, like my book Blind Fury, are always free, and others will only be free through March 20th, so don’t delay in checking out this fabulous collection.

Stay safe and be well!

P.S. Unrelated to this promotion, Blind Ambition (Men of Steele #2) is only 99 cents in ebook through March 29th. Dan and Alexa get a second chance at love while on the run in the Caribbean jungle…

Why I gave $500 to ProLiteracy today

Did you know more than 43 million adults in the United States lack basic literacy skills, two thirds of whom are women? As a lifelong reader and writer, literacy is something I tend to take for granted. For those living without strong skills in reading, writing, and basic finance, it massively affects their job prospects and quality of life.

We’re all readers and writers here. Imagine how illiteracy would impact your life. I want everyone to experience the joy, education, and freedom contained in books and the ability to express themselves.

I usually attend the Romance Writers of America annual conference in the summer, but I recently withdrew from RWA—along with many other writers—to support the marginalized authors for whom it was not a safe or supportive space.

However, this mass boycott jeopardizes the nearly $50K raised at the conference book signing for ProLiteracy each year. So, Tessa Dare, Beverly Jenkins, and others got with the ProLiteracy folks to figure out how we could still support them, and the Romance for Literacy fundraiser was born.

To that end, I’ve donated $500 to the cause (in lieu of my conference registration). I hope you’ll help me empower women through the power of adult literacy with whatever you can spare at https://proliteracy.rallybound.org/romance-for-literacy/GwenHernandez.

Thank you! ❤️
