So, the 1st question is “Which issue of modern womanhood does your book addresses? Why the issue?”

1) Author #1 :  Tetasheri Whitney

Sex trafficking and abuse to neglected women

2) Author #2:  Beth Merlin

In 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.

3) Author #3:  Tracy Orchard

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.’

4) Author #4:  Jae El Foster

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.

5) Author #5:  Adesanya

An Autumn of Incident covers one woman’s new life after surviving emotional abuse.

6) Author #6:  Amy Spitzfaden

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.

7) Author #7:  Summer Dowell

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!

8) Author #8:  Jennifer Patricia O’Keeffe

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.

9) Author #9:  Sasha Lane

The struggle to balance the many roles that a woman has in life, and the pressure to ‘fit in’ to what society expects of women. I address the issues of marriage and children and the fact that women can feel conflicted if they do not follow this path. I have chosen this theme as I think it’s something that people can relate too. We all have such busy lives and can put ourselves under so much pressure to be perfect at everything.

10) Author #10:  Kristin Billerbeck

Daddy Issues — when Dad is a good parent to your younger siblings and you must find your worth elsewhere.

11) Author #11:  Phaedra Patrick

The Library of Lost and Found addresses the issue of being able to say ‘no’. My heroine, Martha Storm, finds herself saying ‘yes’ to everyone, and taking too much on, so she often feels overwhelmed. I think women today have lots on their shoulders but can feel uncomfortable saying ‘no’ to things.

12) Author #12:  Katie Joyce Cross

Our belief that our value has anything to do with the number on the scale.
