Interracial e-books

Interview with Empress LaBlaque

We are pleased to interview today romance author Empress LaBlaque! Welcome! Please tell us about your latest release.

Latest release: What Color is Love? by Lady Leo Publishing.

Tamela Johnson is an outstanding substance abuse counselor. She conducts seminars all over the United States. Of course she has everything under control, including her love life. Wrong! While attending a boring seminar, Tamela meets Lane Corbett, an English gentleman. She is horrified when he reveals he has been following her and has an undeniable crush on her. Because Lane is smitten, Tamela wonders if he realizes she’s Black. Is Lane blind or simply crazy? Empress LaBlaQue

When you first started writing, was it your intent to write interracial romance?

The public had a demand for interracial romance and I was delighted to fill their needs. Romance is my passion, I’m a sucker for relationships that lead to marriage. I address interracial relationships with emphasis on love and compatibility. Interracial relationships steeped in compatibility are satisfying and have more endurance. Beyond a doubt, common interests build better marriages and produces happier children; it also creates a solid foundation for all relationships. Interracial couples can and usually do, experience negative influences from outside their relationship. In order to combat this pressure more than a sexually driven bond is necessary. Physical relationships are fragile and rarely thrive outside the bedroom. When children are born to interracial unions where there is no interest in their mate’s genetic makeup, their children will suffer. Couples should learn about each other’s physical and cultural differences. A house divided against its self will not stand.

What do you think of the growing popularity of interracial romance? What is the appeal?

Some people will never have the opportunity to experience an interracial relationship. To some, it’s an off limits fantasy. I’m the catalyst who provides a safe bite of the forbidden fruit. Can you imagine being loved unconditionally for who and what you are? Awesome!

Tell us about your first exposure to interracial romance? Was it a book or movie? What was your initial reaction?

Interracial relationships are all around us. I’m a sociology nut, so I study people. Due to the nature of my job, I was able to start my own personal IR study. I had an opportunity to observe numerous interracial relationships. After surveying several IR couples, I found their relationships purely physical and basically built on lust; they had absolutely positively NOTHING in common! I wanted people to experience the romantic side of the IR relationship—the part that bonds—the part that blossoms into true love.  BW/WM relationships are usually built on a solid foundation. If a Caucasian male engages a relationship with an African American female, you can bet, she will be worth his time.

Will interracial romance become more or less mainstream in the future?

Yes. When the glitter wears off, mainstream will accept IR due to popular demand. It will be accepted as the norm, especially BW/WM.

What are you working on now?

I have several books in the wings of publication.

New Releases Coming Soon:

  • Bad Boys Don’t Play Fair, IR Amira Press
  • Victorian Dreams, IR Amira Press
  • Love Among The Thorns, IR part 2- Red Rose Publishing
  • In Pursuit of Passion, Red Rose Publishing
  • Private Chronicles of the Paranormal, Red Rose Publishing

In the works: 5 spectacular romance stories including: Lady and the Geek, Caught in a Spider’s Web, Highest Bidder, My Italian Vendetta, & Run Away Heart

Do you have any particular rituals when writing (a special place or time, specific music you listen to, etc.)?

With my earlier publications I thought I needed music to set the mood. After a few years, I discovered what I really needed was solitude. First, I clear my mind then I fill it with things you can see, smell and taste; afterwards I transfer that information to print. My characters should move, live, breathe, have flaws and solve conflicts. If I can’t transfer the ambiance from my head to yours, I’ve failed my readers.
