Political activist and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will have three romance novels republished in 2022.
Abrams’ novels were written nearly twenty years ago and will be reissued by the publisher, Berkley, The Hill reported.
“As my first novels, they remain incredibly special to me,” said Abrams. “The characters and their adventures are what I’d wished to read as a young Black woman — stories that showcase women of color as nuanced, determined, and exciting.”
“Rules of Engagement,” “The Art of Desire” and “Power of Persuasion,” are the titles of the novels being reissued next year, which are currently out of print, according to NPR. Abrams wrote the first book while she was in her final year at Yale Law School and used the pseudonym Selena Montgomery.
