Who we are:

The Brown Book Series is an online community for romance readers and authors.
The platform is the intersection of romance and technology. It features a vibrant and energy driven talk show setting trends in the romance author space.


Our mission is to creatively amplify the voices of Romance Authors and give fans the opportunity to interact with their favorite authors in unique ways.


We do this by hosting high energy interviews and events with Award-winning USA Today and New York Times Best-Selling Authors.


The series is hosted by media personality and influencer, "Shay Baby", who mixed her experience in broadcast radio and special event hosting with her love for romance books and The Brown Book Series was born.

Before romance became a widely accepted genre, people would judge romance readers for reading "trash" or "smut" in public. But in the 1930s, British publisher Mills & Boon began releasing hardback romance novels with discreet brown binding. When this binding technique caught on with other publishers, romance readers felt comfortable enjoying their favorite books without scrutiny.

So, the Brown Book Series pays homage to Mills & Boon for helping romance become as popular as it is today.
