A white woman marries a Korean man. Are you shocked? Of course, you aren’t. That’s so 1973. Well, it should be so 1973.
Kissing Outside The Lines: A True Story of Love and Race and Happily Ever After tells the story of what happens when a white women and a Korean man marry and have three children. I haven’t gotten my hands on a copy yet, but I will in the very near future.
Author Diane Farr has a wonderful writing voice, and she is funny. A combination of the two, not to mention she’s an actress, undoubtedly helped her land the book deal. I would be less than honest if I didn’t say I have a little twinge of book envy on this one. Okay, it’s a big twinge. The good news is the book industry is publishing books like hers, and perhaps that will open a door for me and others. Seeing her book is giving me the little kick I need to put the finishing touches on my book proposal and get it in the email to agents. It’s tough taking rejection, but this is a glimmer of hope. I hope I’m not too late.
Farr is promoting her book with this excerpt. She also has a website that features her column writing. Enjoy!
