Romancing the Runoff
Press Kit

Mission Statement

We are romance authors who care about the future of this country and are inspired by fellow romance author Stacey Abrams to help Georgia elect two Democratic senators. Democracy only thrives when every vote can be cast and counted, and we are fighting to help dismantle the legacy of voter suppression in Georgia. All funds raised through our project will go to Fair Fight, the New Georgia Project, and Black Voters Matter.


Alyssa Cole, Courtney Milan, and Kit Rocha (aka Bree & Donna) met while writing romance. They bonded over a shared love of protagonists who fight for a better world and stories filled with hope and triumph. They pulled Romancing the Runoff together in twelve hours. With the help of the romance community, they raised $95,000 before the auction even started. They met their auction goal of $25k in 7 minutes, their expanded goal of $50k in 1 hour, and their stretch goal of $100k in 12 hours. The initial auction has raised $398,000 and counting as additional donations come in. They're currently arranging an epilogue to auction off an original, autographed copy of Rules of Engagement by Selena Montgomery aka Stacey Abrams... who donated it to them personally. (OMG???!)


The auction was made possible by the following volunteers: Akeisha, Shivani Seth, Helena Greer, Megan Gemperline, Lillie Applegarth, Melinda Utendorf, Quinn Avery, Laura Pratt, Amery G Wong, Ann Aguirre, Lauren Sullivan, Alyssa Long, Monique Martin, Phoenix Sullivan, Laura Fliegel, Christina Garner, Devin Harnois. We are deeply grateful to every single person who dropped what they were doing and jumped to help.
