Hi, I’m Romi Moondi, and words forever rattle in my head. I try my best to put them to use with novels, short stories, screenplays, and ad copy, but even after all of that…the word count runneth over.
I guess that’s why blogs were invented.
It was my early days of posting three times a week that inspired my first novel, and while I don’t have as much time for blogging as I used to, I still do enjoy it quite a lot.
In recent years, there’s been a lot more writing, some publishing of books, and a good deal of travelling too. This blog recalls some of those travel experiences (particularly the ones in Paris), along with some thoughts on writing, and occasional thoughts on anything
My latest thoughts are focused on the BIGGEST NEWS: My romantic comedy 24 Hours in Paris will be in bookstores in North America on May 10th!
[I interrupt this summary to say: 24 Hours in Paris received a starred review from Publishers Weekly (a really impassioned one that blew my mind!), and it was also the Publishers Weekly #1 Summer Romance Read Pick for 2022 (which additionally blew my mind)!!]
This dream has been a long time in the making, and I hope you’ll enjoy this dual-POV, POC-led romantic comedy as much as I enjoyed writing it. It’s basically a story about two very different co-workers, who wind up stuck in Paris for an extra 24 hours after missing their flight. Chaos ensues, sparks fly, and all along, you’ll get to enjoy an immersive tour of Paris (inspired by the endless hours I’ve spent there—though it’s never enough)! In terms of the romance aspect, it’s light on the cheesiness but heavy on the feelings. There’s some yearning in there too—who doesn’t love a good yearning session on a Friday night? Oh, just me? Okay then. There’s a good dash of humour in the book as well, and I hope it’ll make you smile.
You can preorder the book at Indigo and Amazon in Canada, at Barnes and Noble and Amazon in the US, and at Amazon in the UK. You can also preorder it directly from Wattpad if you’re in the US. It’s also available at independent bookstores and libraries in North America, and if becomes available anywhere else, I’ll let you know on social media.
