So who is this Katia person?
My official author bio reads thus:
Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
...but of course there's lots more to say!
I'm Katia! I'm a romance writer (in case you haven't figured that out yet), but I'm also a tea enthusiast, a travel addict, and a total pole dance fanatic. Seriously, I contemplate climbing every pole-like object I see. I'm always on the lookout for my newest favourite coffee shop, and I have an ever-growing pile of romantic comedies loaded up on my Kindle.
I'm absolutely in LOVE with the whole world of indie romance novels: the sense of community, the celebration of women, the staggering feats of badassery- I can't get enough! To hear the whole story on how I went from being an avid reader of romance to an avid writer as well, head on over to my blog post, 'Why I Write Romance.'
I adore getting in touch with fellow romance fans, and I'd love to hear more about YOU. One of my favourite ways to reach readers is through Club Katia, an exclusive community where you can find all kinds of bonus content and updates.
I'm also a big fan of the 'Gram, so hit me up at @katiaroseauthor to follow my adventures there. You can find me under the same handle on all social media, or head over to my Contact page to get in touch with me directly (which you should, 'cause I wanna chat with you!)
As a white author and business owner, I recognize that racism and white supremacy afford me a position of privilege in this industry. The romance community, both personal and professional, is not exempt from the impact of racism, and I have a role to play in challenging that impact in myself, my business, and my surroundings through sustained and concrete action.
I've developed my Anti-Racist Business Plan to address this and hold myself accountable for creating change that allows people of all races to receive equal opportunities, representation, and respect in this genre and its community.
