Amy Denim writes business books for writers and contemporary romance. She loves hot heroes (like chefs and cowboys) and curvy intelligent heroines (like chefs and cowgirls.)

She’s been a franchise sales coordinator, a lifeguard, a personal shopper, and a teacher of English as a Foreign Language. But now she spends her days reading and writing at her local library or in her book cave.

Amy started out her writer’s life scared out of her wits because she hadn’t yet created an online platform, wasn’t on twitter, didn’t have a Facebook fanpage and had never even heard of Goodreads. She just wrote books. So she spent a year becoming a social media fiend and now does consulting for creatives on how to use social media effectively. She started Coffee

Shrill by Lindy West

A great book that validated my feelings on feminism, fat people being real human beings with feelings and everything, and the lameness of rape culture. Loved it. Laughed till I cried and then cried, and then laughed some more.

Amy Denim Hey Lucinda,
I majored in English in college and am an aspiring author too. I like to call us "pre-published." Can't wait to discuss books and writing with you.

Lucinda Dear Amy,
I would like to thank you for being my friend on Goodreads, which is a site that i am still fairly new to and hence i am just getting used to knowing my way around. It is so nice though to be able to converse with likeminded people both authors and readers.
Feel free to discuss books, writing & reading whenever you like as i am not only an English Student with the view of working in an English-based career, but also an amateur writer on my first novel. Thank you once again! x

Harlequin Books Hi Amy, I'm sorry it took a bit to stop by and say thanks for being a friend. I swear my day is over before it properly began! While here, I want you to know that if you ever have any questions about the books on my shelves or about Harlequin.com, Stop by the HB profile and I would be delighted to answer them. Also, I list as much Harlequin news and author news as I can so be sure to watch for my updates.

Happy reading,
Kim S., Harlequin Books ambassador
