In , Sparks co-wrote a book with Billy Mills entitled Wokini: A Lakota Journey to Happiness and Self-Understanding ,  a nonfiction book about the influence of Lakota spiritual beliefs and practices. The book was published by Feather Publishing, Random House , and Hay House , and sales for this first book approximated 50, copies in its first year after release.
In , Sparks began selling pharmaceuticals , and in was transferred to Washington, D. It was there that he wrote another novel in his spare time, The Notebook. The novel was published in October and made the New York Times best-seller list in its first week of release. With the success of his first novel, he moved to New Bern, North Carolina.
His novel, Two by Two , sold about 98, copies during the first week after release. Sparks and his then-wife Cathy lived together in New Bern, North Carolina , with their three sons and twin daughters until On January 6, , Sparks announced that he and Cathy had amicably separated.
They subsequently divorced. Sparks contributes to other local and national charities, including the Creative Writing Program MFA at the University of Notre Dame by funding scholarships, internships and annual fellowships. According to The Daily Beast , in Sparks' novels, "handsome, hard-working, and occasionally brusque men tend to encounter waifish, strong-headed women, fall passionately, chastely in love, only to have some obstacle—status, sickness, hidden histories—intervene.

Retrieved March 26, Alexander had promised to meet me in the morning for breakfast. Individual choice! Through the s, many romance novels had stayed relatively prim, with the sex mostly implied. Authors experimenting with more sensual stories still had to negotiate with editors determined to uphold what they saw as moral standards.
In the 80s, as Reagan and Thatcher dismantled the welfare state, romance heroines found themselves drawn to domineering corporate heroes. But these innovations in the genre are taking place within an industry that is still overwhelmingly white. K ianna Alexander lives in a modest home south of Raleigh, North Carolina. Across the street, her neighbours have a set of Confederate flags on display, and when she walks around her rural neighborhood, Alexander tries to remember always to bring her ID, to prove, if anyone questions her, that she actually lives there.
Alexander told me that she had once been very involved with the Heart of Carolina Romance Writers group but, during the election campaign, that had changed. A decade into her career as a published author, Alexander has worked her way from smaller independent presses to contracts with major publishers, including Harlequin , the most famous name in romance publishing, and she is an unabashed champion of the genre.
Despite her success, Alexander knows all about the barriers that make it more difficult for authors of colour to succeed. On the morning we met, we visited her local Walmart to look at the book section. Her latest Harlequin romance was on display, but it was not placed with the other romance novels. Instead, it was on a separate shelf marked with a neat label: African American.
Many black romance novelists told me they had found bookstores and large retailers stocking their work in a special black section, far away from shelves that the majority of romance readers will be browsing. On a previous visit to her North Carolina Walmart, Alexander had asked a manager why the books were arranged that way.
He said it was for the convenience of readers, who liked being able to easily locate the books they wanted. In no way is our intention to discourage all shoppers from perusing all titles available to them, but to highlight authors from all backgrounds and provide better opportunity for sales. The process started with the publisher. But the Harlequin line that Alexander wrote for, Kimani , was grouped by only one thing: race.
The heroes in Kimani books can be any race or ethnicity, Alexander said, but Kimani heroines, like their authors, are black. Alexander and many of her fellow black authors have long had mixed feelings about Kimani. Some black authors told me they believed that for some readers a dedicated black romance series really was a quick way to locate what they wanted to read. But, like being shelved in the black section, black authors also believed that being part of a segregated line limited their sales, cutting them off from readers of other races who might also enjoy their work.
Some former Harlequin authors even alleged that Kimani had been given separate and unequal treatment by the publisher: less marketing, fewer chances for authors to promote their books. In May , Harlequin had announced that it would be gradually phasing out five lines , including Kimani, for financial reasons.
If the publisher had quickly integrated black authors into its other Harlequin lines, this decision could have garnered broad support. For almost years before that, the company had rarely published romances with black heroes and heroines at all.
In , when Harlequin published its first black romance by a black American author, many readers got their books through a subscription sent directly to their homes. When the novel, Adam and Eva, did eventually come out, the company received only four letters of complaint. She told me she was never given any explanation for why she was forced out. After Stephens left, Harlequin continued to publish novels by Sandra Kitt — but only the ones she wrote about white characters.
Beverly Jenkins told me that in , when she published her breakthrough novel, Indigo , which featured a dark-skinned black woman as the heroine, she was often approached by readers who were moved to tears at seeing themselves represented in a romance novel. Seeing their reactions, she cried, too. Marketing black love stories to black women was one thing, but publishers remained sceptical about the idea that white readers would read those same stories.
In the late s, Suzanne Brockmann, a white author writing a sequence of Harlequin romances about sexy Navy Seals, decided that she wanted to make a black character the hero of her next book. We cannot send it to our subscription list. She said she was also told they would not publish a novel with an Asian American as the central character.
Brockmann later moved on to another publisher. The experience of authors who wrote early Harlequin novels with black characters suggests that white readers might be more willing to embrace black stories than white publishers and editors have traditionally assumed. Several black authors described meeting white women at book signings who would ask to get a book signed, but emphasise that they were buying the books for a black friend, or a black colleague, certainly not for themselves.
Others had seen or heard comments from white readers that they found happy stories about black women unrealistic. A particularly infuriating comment, some black authors said, is when white women describe taking a chance on a romance with a black heroine, and then express surprise at how easily they were able to identify with the story.
Shirley Hailstock, a black novelist and past president of RWA, told me about a fan letter she once received from a white romance author. She sent me a photograph of the letter, with the signature concealed. I guess I might sound bigoted, but I never knew that black folks fall in love like white folks. Silly of me.
Love is love no matter what colour or religion or nationality, as sex is sex. I guess the media has a lot to do with it. I n , the year Donald Trump launched his campaign for the White House, the RWA began a serious effort to address racism and diversity within its membership.
