What is the working title of your book?
Urk. It doesn’t have a title—only a genre: women’s fiction.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I’m West Indian and there are a ton of really interesting superstitions I wanted to talk about…
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Lol, I’d just be so thrilled they were making into a movie, I wouldn’t care!
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Wow. Ask the hard questions—basically, a West Indian woman must confront cultural prejudice and family disapproval when she and her lesbian lover decide to have a child.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
It would be cool to have it rep’d but indie publishing is a great Plan B.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
**blushing** I’ve gotten as far as the one sentence synopsis, above…
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I’m looking forward to wandering the library stacks this week to answer that question!
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Honestly—having to stuff a cut lime in my bra during a funeral (yeah…don’t ask…)
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Well, since it’s a Natasha Deen work, folks can expect comedy, heart, and a happy ending. J
