True Love Sees No Color and No Bounds, the story behind writing my first book by M.J. Kane! Plus, Read M.J.'s Entire Multicultural Women's Fiction Series Free with Kindle Unlimited!
Embarking on the journey of writing my first novel was a tumultuous adventure filled with trepidation and excitement. Armed with nothing but passion, and driven by my Muse, the process started. The choice was clear - I would create a narrative where love blossoms beyond the barriers of race and color, echoing my personal belief that love knows no bounds.
Ebony Campbell, my heroine, is a strong, goal-oriented black woman. A twist of fate throws her into an unexpected whirlpool of emotions, making her question the path she meticulously planned for herself. As an African-American author, the obvious choice for a hero would seem to be a black man, but creativity took the reins, leading me to envision a different, captivating romantic interest.
During the narrative's inception, I stumbled upon the character of Brian Young - a charismatic, white man with blue eyes that seemed to see right through Ebony's strong exterior. Brian, defying stereotypes with his compassionate nature, became the pillar Ebony didn’t know she needed.
Determined to infuse authenticity into the interracial relationship of Ebony and Brian, extensive research became my ally. Exploring stories of real-life interracial couples, delving into statistics, and absorbing the nuanced experiences of people in such relationships, became stepping stones in crafting a story that resonated with realism and heartfelt emotions.
A Heart Not Easily Broken focuses not just on the racial aspect but also navigates through the couple’s individual journeys and collective experiences. It shines a light on love’s ability to triumph over societal norms and personal insecurities, painting a canvas where colors blend seamlessly, fostering a beautiful relationship.
Even today, the world behind closed doors whispers judgments, and skepticism looms around interracial relationships. However, my story encourages embracing love beyond color lines, emphasizing that happiness blossoms where love is nurtured, irrespective of societal norms.
The positive reception and heartwarming reviews from readers, including those who found a piece of their truth in Ebony and Brian’s journey, remain the treasures of this writing adventure. A Heart Not Easily Broken is not merely a tale of love but a reflection of life’s ability to surprise us with the beauty found in unexpected places.
Discover this journey of love, overcoming societal judgments and personal fears, in the vivid pages of A Heart Not Easily Broken - where love knows no color. Learn More on Amazon.com, or Read an Excerpt.
