Hello fellow authorpreneurs,
Firstly, I’d like to thank all participating authors in the author interview. We are still waiting for four authors to respond to the questions for March Chick Lit Interview. The most joyous part of the group author interview is when I get to compile all the answers from the authors!
I’d be introducing an author live interview on Google Hangouts for all participating authors, and there will be a ‘Watch Event’ on Facebook. We’ll have 6 participating authors for each live interview. The purpose of this live interview is to bridge the gap between authors and readers, and to enable authors to enhance their personal branding. The administration fee for each participant is only $15. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll get in touch with you.
While we wait for the rest to get back to us, I thought you’d like to check out some of the answers for Question 1. I am totally amazed at some of the answers.
1st Question: Which issue of modern womanhood does your book addresses? Why the issue?
Sex trafficking and abuse to neglected womenIn my series, the main character Gigi takes a back seat in her career and love life. Over the course of the three books, she learns her worth and is able to become the heroine of her own life.
The controversy of internet dating and of ‘testing the waters’ before committing. The issue addresses why is it ok for men to have multiple relationships when women, ideally, should only have one, especially at ‘one time.
‘In ‘Ashaki’s Beauty Parlor,’ our protagonist faces three strong obstacles that most modern women can, in one way or another, relate to, including: the loss of a parent, the betrayal of a lover, and owning her own business.
An Autumn of Incident covers one woman’s new life after surviving emotional abuse.
Fingerprinted Hearts addresses being a woman in business and dealing with imposter syndrome and feelings of unworthiness. It also deals with sisterhood, both literal and figurative, and struggling to align your inner compass with your outer relationships.
Independence. Most of my books are about young single women who are supporting themselves and fulfilling their own dreams. Eventually they all end up with a man, but I try to show no they’re totally capable and self-sufficient without one!
My story ‘We Made Snow Angels’ addresses tackling the odds and pushing through embarrassment. I think we’ve all made fools of ourselves before in one way or another, and it’s important to see that we’re all just human beings doing the best we can do to struggle through.
