Just as a note, I sometimes post articles about politics, human rights issues, animal rights issues, feminism, and issues affecting sexual assault and human trafficking survivors on my Facebook profile and on Twitter. I am also chronically ill, so I talk about healthcare and disability rights too.
If you’d like to only see my public posts of my Instagram, history facts, etc, feel free to just follow my Facebook profile instead of friending. You can also turn off retweets from me on Twitter, so you’ll see significantly less of my politics.
I won’t get into the debate about whether or not authors should express their opinions publicly – every author has very unique, valid reasons for deciding what is and what isn’t on brand for them, and never would I want to judge anyone (as I wouldn’t want anyone to judge me!) As for me, I tend to write very feminist social-issue-focused historical romance, using history to reflect today’s current climate. Because of this, and because I am both very passionate about tolerance and inclusiveness *and* happen to be horrible at compartmentalization, I long ago made the decision that my brand would reflect my beliefs.
But I 100% understand that this is not for every reader. Some of you just want to know about my books, and not listen to me blather on about pit bulls or women’s rights. You can still interact with me, though! On my Facebook page and fan group, I keep things much lighter, and my newsletter is pretty much only about new releases or sales.
