My Way To You – Review by iHeartReading

cc2cc-MOriginal Post: iheartreading

Rating: 5 stars

I loved how the relationship between the two characters, despite their instant attraction, still moved rather slowly from that point. Both of them were reluctant to get in an actual relationship, and they each had their own reasons, which made a lot of sense for me. The cultural clash between Regina and Simon’s cultures was also very interesting and added additional challenges for their relationship.

Interview with the Author: Lyndell Williams

 

Original Post: via Interview with the Author: Lyndell Williams

Hello, fellow book dragons!  It’s time for my last Interview with the Author for 2018.  Today I want you to meet Lyndell Williams, a superb author.  She rocks the alphabet, y’all.  I met Lyndell through K. Williams as part of the #OpenBook blog I participate in on Mondays.  I really enjoy her comments on the topics, and when she offered an ARC of her new book, My Way To You, I tried very hard not to jump up and down and squeal when I got one.  Just kidding.  I totes celebrated.  I mean, look at it!  It’s gorgeous, and I already knew she was a solid writer.

My Way to You is a strong, sexy book.  Lyndell already does an excellent job of telling you about it below, so I won’t hit you with it twice.  (I have reviewed it on Goodreads and Amazon, so you’ll see my review when you go to review it!)  My favorite parts of the book (other than when I was reading this book in the dentist office waiting for my kids and I was having a hard time keeping my face from turning into fire) is the honesty of interracial relationships, a gorgeous, curvy MC, and the play between the strong personalities.

I’ve gotten to know Lyndell a little more online. I enjoy her sense of humor and honesty, and she’s talented with the gifs.

Ready to get to know Lyndell Williams better?  Let’s get right down to it!

BOOK REVIEW: The Wolf’s Concubine-When a Good Woman Won’t Sit Still

Review by Lyndell Williams
THE WOLF’S CONCUBINE
By Erin St. Charles
$3.99, pp 330, Kindle

Imagine, you’re this hot wolf shifter detective taking care of business when you run dead smack into your fated mate. You know, the one person to whom you are intrinsically linked and hot and bothered about on sight.

On top of all of that, she’s smokin’! You immediately want her, but the problem is that she’s not feeling you at the same level. Well, she may be feeling something, but it’s not the whole “sealed to each other forever” thing. What’s a man-wolf to do?

That’s Phelan’s dilemma in Erin St. Charles’s paranormal romance The Wolf’s Concubine. From the time he rescues the damsel in distress, Lola, the wolf-shifter-detective wants her—forever.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***  Now, Let’s do this. Continue reading “BOOK REVIEW: The Wolf’s Concubine-When a Good Woman Won’t Sit Still”

Crazy K.A.L.M Book Review: My Way to You

Original Post: Crazy K.A.L.M.

My Review

Well, this was a story and a half. If you’re expecting your bog standard, basic romance, then that isn’t what you are going to get, but even so, I don’t think that you’ll be disappointed in this one. In many ways, the events of this book could have filled a whole series. That’s not to say that the book is either overly long, or rushed, it isn’t, but there’s an awful lot going on.
There isn’t just romance to deal with here, but race, prejudice and what happens when love runs into that.

Just a Taste – LW Book Excerpts

#OpenBook

What are some of your favorite lines from your books?

I love reading authors’ favorite lines from their books. Many authors take a lot of time and energy to draft particularly poignant prose (that alliteration is not an example), to grab readers’ attention and offer some inspiration, humor, humanity—a bunch of stuff.

I’m a little daunted to find some of my favorite lines from my book—singular…as in only one written so far—because I’ve spent so much time with my words. It’s difficult to step back and look at something I took so long to make cohesive and fluid as layers of individual components.

Failsafe from Failing Students

giphy-downsized-large

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Failure, or fear of it, is very effective at making both the timid and bold hesitant. Even just the thought that success won’t be achieved is enough to keep one stagnant. So, having the barrier produced by a fear of failure is refreshing and makes the mind run rampant.  Mine has, and I shall now have at it.

As I went through school as a kid and during my college years, I encountered one disturbing constant. My education was always tainted by implicit and explicit bias and racism from either my fellow students, faculty or administration. Continue reading “Failsafe from Failing Students”

Interracial Romance Author Lyndell Williams Talks About Love and Hate

Why did you write this book?

I had a few reasons for writing My Way to You, the primary one being that I wanted to write a romance centering what I gleaned as the increasing lines of solidarity between Blacks and Asians in the country. I also wanted to highlight the growing Black Woman-Asian Man (BWAM) subculture, where members of two social groups deemed less desirable are learning to appreciate each other as love matches.
Black women and Asian men have to tackle with a contrived lack of appeal stemming from stereotypes masculinizing one and feminizing the other. My Way to You and other romances centering BWAM love interests pushes back against that and offers representation for couples in similar relationships as well as interracial couples in general.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Christmas Surprise: Interview with Lyndell Williams

Marilyn Vix

Christmas is coming, and there are holiday parties to attend or shopping to do. But if you want to get away from it all and curl up with a good book, I’ve got an author you’ll want to meet. I had a chance to interview Lyndell Williams. She is a cultural critic with a background in literary criticism specializing in romance. She is the managing editor of the NbA Muslims blog on Patheos and a cultural contributor for Radio Islam USA. Her novel, My Way To You, is an interracial romance that takes on controversial topics head-on. I had a chance to talk with her about her writing routine, what future subjects and projects she will tackle, and what writing romance means to her.

Do you have a writing routine? Share what works for you. 

Lyndell Williams: I have two must-haves when I’m writing. I make myself a huge…
