love notes by tia… the blog.

the pen series… reading in color.

I like to think of Romance Novels in Color (RNIC) as the place to be if you’re looking for diversity in your romance novels, but I’m biased. I’m the site manager, after all. LOL. At RNIC, we advance the awareness and appreciation of diversity in romance novels, and avid romance readers have a variety of ways to discover new authors and books.

We have book reviews. Every week, one or two book reviews are posted on the blog. Our volunteer reviewers thoughtfully analyze and rate the stories based on plot, grammar, and other factors. While each review is subjective, the reviewers clearly articulate what they like or dislike about a novel to give fellow readers good advice. By the way, we’re always looking for new reviewers. If you like to read and can write thoughtful reviews, contact us for more details.

We have giveaways. Generous authors book space at RNIC to promote their novels and give away great prizes to participating entrants. Readers have the opportunity to win autographed novels, swag, gift cards, and other prizes.

We host virtual book tours. Our partnership with tour companies allows us to find out first about new releases. Readers are introduced to new authors and novels, and they have the opportunity to win prizes in tour-wide contests.

We have fun! Join us on Twitter and Facebook. We pose questions for you to answer and dive into the conversations during the top TV shows, such as Scandal and the Have and Have Nots.

If you’re a romance lover who enjoys reading books with diversity, sign up for our newsletter. You’ll receive a list of reviews, giveaways, book tours, and notices of new releases and discounted books to your inbox every week. By signing up, we’ll also gift you with short stories offered by our site admins as a Thank you for allowing us into your inbox.
