Sexy Six Authors Q&A #10:When you hit a wall, how do you break through?

This post would be the continuation of Q&A session with the Sexy Six team and in case you’ve missed the 9th post, here is the link to it.

It’s a pleasure to interview the six sexy authors from the Sexy Six team. A warm welcome to our blog and we hope that you’ve enjoyed the interview session with us.

We’ve asked them a few questions and the answers for each question from all six of them will be published as a series. Let’s check out question #10

When you hit a wall, how do you break through?

Chris Lange 

I’ll let you know when it happens.

Leanore Elliott

I never have experienced a wall. Not in 35 novels.Time is the only blocker I struggle with.

Jennifer Theriot

It used to really bother me and stress me out. I found that the more I relax and wait until my characters speak to me, the better off I am. Sometimes, something as simple as hearing a song on the radio will inspire me and make the character speak.

In case you’re not sure whether your book fits this category, I’ve copied and pasted the Google definition below:

Women’s fiction is an umbrella term for women centered books that focus on women’s life experience that are marketed to female readers, and includes many mainstream novels.

I have also added more definitions of women’s fiction below:

Not heavily centred on erotica or romance.

Focused mainly on family relationships.

Deeper characterisation.

Focused on women’s empowerment and women’s issues.

Generational sagas.


Does your book fit this genre?  If you add your book (s), there is space to write a little promotional feature about why they have been added.  I look forward to discovering many more women’s…
