Romance Writers of America Still A Mess: Today In Books

Romance Writers of America Still A Mess

Right before Christmas 2019, Romance Writers of America decided to sanction Courtney Milan, top-selling Chinese-American romance author and at the time RWA Board Member and Ethics Committee Chair, for saying something racist was racist. Things only got worse for RWA from there when the curtains got pulled back. And the fallout has continued months later: “the remaining board members of the Romance Writers of America resigned and announced a special election to fill the board seats for the remainder of their terms.” If you need/want a recap here you go.

More Happy Than Not Indeed

Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not is getting the adaptation treatment at HBO as a one-hour series. If you haven’t already read this book, put your fingers in your ears and say “lalalalalalala” and go read it. I am super curious to see how they pull this off and can’t wait!
