Welcome to the Land of Hot MAMAs!

Hi, Y'all!
Kianna here. Looks like you've found your way to the warmest corner of the Internet ;)
Welcome to Hot MAMA Land. We are a group of African American women who write romance novels, all living in the NC/VA area. At Romance Slam Jam 2012, I began asking around to see how many other writers lived near me. From that bit of nosiness, the Hot MAMA collective was born.
Wanna know who's here? All our names are in the sidebar, but I'll give you a little reminder, in the form of the schedule for this month. It will also give you an idea of what you'll have to look forward to- lots of excitement. Today, there's me, of course, but here's what's coming up.

 July 6: Bridget Midway
July 10: Monique Lamont
July 13: Angie Daniels
July 17: Cheris Hodges
July 20: Loretta Walls
July 24: Iris Bolling
July 27: Denise Jeffries
July 31: Altonya Washington

Pretty illustrious group, right? We see you nodding your head. ;)  Click on our names in the sidebar, and you'll be magically transported to our websites, to see our news and latest releases. Anyway, we're happy to have you here. Be sure and stop by on Tuesdays and Fridays to find out whats Hot in MAMA Land. What are we gonna talk about? Romance, heroes, and life in general. We're keeping it strictly sassy, but classy.
For all of you unfamiliar with my work, my latest release is Kissing the Captain, an interaccial historical. Click the cover image for more info.

All the Best,


  1. Well, what a great intro Kianna. I must say I'm so proud to be a part of such an illustrious group of ladies--southern ladies. I'll have to find a hat to showcase our heritage.

    I can't wait to hear what these wonderful ladies have to say about,romance, books and who knows what else. I'l be checking in regularly for updates.

    Oh wait, I'm one of them. I'll post on July 24th, the week of my birthday. I better write that post now, I may not be able to write that week.

    One more thing Kianna,don't think I didn't notice you put me between Loretta and Denise. I'm going to need some help. :)

  2. Nice! Looking forward to reading all of the posts.

  3. I love the concept of this blog! And just look at that list! Much talent in Hot MAMA Land.
