What inspired you to write your book?
Many years ago growing up in Jamaica, before the
notion of becoming an Author blossomed within me, I vowed to become relevant to my generation. I realized that God gave me this gift of language and I wanted
to use it to create something that could help transform the way people think…something that was lasting. If you read TenLife Changing Lessons you will get a better idea of what I am talkingabout. However, I will say this, that at 15 years old I grew up. I felt I washere for a greater purpose and I wanted to help others. The truth is I have always been dispensing advice to people who have had the privilege to call me a friend. Then there is the notion of
passion…just that gut wrenching feeling to put it all on paper…the rush I feel
as my fingers type away and how magical it feels when I am done. Loss…you don’t experience what I have and not become a changed woman…life takes on new meaning, every moment is precious, fragile even and I capture it all on paper and the response I have gotten, the people I have met have all made it
worthwhile. It’s beautiful…writing a book that is…
Have you always aspired to be an author?
Yes. Subconsciously I knew I it was meant to be. I was fixated on the ideawhile I was in high school. My English Teacher was my idol and I was one of her best students. It was during one of her writing sessions that she took my writing seriously and kept encouraging me. It was a great form of expression and still is. My family always assigned me to represent them for any speaking or writing engagements. I love and thank them for that. There were many times when others have asked me randomly but I dismissed the idea. Other times I wrote articles and presentations for others and they were amazingly good but I could not take credit for that. The idea of becoming an author was simply too “revealing” for me. I have always prided myself as a very private person. Now I can share my “ups and downs” of life with people from all over the world and it brings me happiness, joy and in many ways…peace.
How did your journey as an author began?
My journey began while attending University when I wrote a short
Autobiographical essay on my father for a course. My lecturer immediately asked
if I would give her permission to publish it. I told her no. Somehow it was so
personal and I also felt I had “canned” the essence of the story for a grade. I
made a vow then and there that I would do it some justice another time. For
years I have searched endlessly through my books and papers for that essay and
I still cannot find it. Still the story remains the same and I did open up to
my readers about it in Ten Life Changing Lessons. Stories like that were meant to live on.
Who should read your books and why?
My books Ten Life Changing Lessons, The Perks Of A
Positive Attitude: A Practical Guide To Happiness And Success, and Fabulosity Is You an are for both women and men who are ready to reprogram the way they think about life, happiness and success. If women are ready to live a purpose-driven life, to take control over any situation that has hindered them from happiness and success, to be bold, confident, fabulous and empowered, then my books are for them. There are many young adults who deserves more than a second chance. Maybe all their life, they were told they were a “failure” and this has negatively impacted the way they think about themselves. They are the people I really want to read my books. My books are not for those who “know” or think they have already figured it out. The truth is there are millions of people who are still searching for books like mine. Its one thing to pick up a book but can you
really relate to it. My books drip with compassion and a true desire to help is
what I aim to do. What set my books apart is that my story is real, it happened
and instead of allowing a negative situation to get the best of me I turned it into
something worthwhile. Today I am a stronger woman because of it and I am
extremely proud of the woman I have become.
Any plans for a fifth book?
Absolutely! I have several projects I am working on concurrently.
My fifth book is almost near completion to be published soon. I am also
finalizing the details for a sixth and a seventh. So far I am very happy with
my progress and I have been doing exceptionally well. There is something deeply
satisfying about it all. I am happy because my message is out there empowering
people and the best reward is when someone sends me a message, leaves a review,
email, tweet or post on my Facebook page of how much I have inspired and
uplifted them. You can always expect great books from meJ
What are some upcoming projects you are involved
I have many new and exciting projects coming up. As I mentioned
before my 5th and 6th book is in the works. My most immediate project is I will be doing my part to build awareness and recognizing International Women’s Day on Friday March 8, 2013 by offering my book Fabulosity Is You: A Woman’s Guide For Building Her Confidence, Fashion Tips, Weight Loss Tips, Skin Care Secrets, Relationships and Pursuing Her Purpose FREE to ALL WOMEN. This huge online event will run for TWO FULL days ending on March 9, 2013. My book is my gift to you and please share, tweet, like and invite all your family and friends to get their copy. This powerful guide teaches women how to be confident, how to build their self-esteem, how to overcome heartache, how to live a life of abundanceand love, and how to rediscover your purpose no matter your marital status,age, or creed. In this book I also share my own personal experience of love,relationships and marriage, which many women can relate to.
I do have BIG plans for my existing books and will release the specific
details via my website www.cgwritinservices.com. I am taking my books International and they will become accessible to everyone. My
message speaks of BOLDNESS, CONFIDENCE, PURSUING PURPOSE and EMPOWERMENT and I intend to let the world know that. For me it’s more than just writing books. I have always had every intention of writing them and I have every intention of motivating and inspiring young women, mature women or men to greatness. Follow my social pages on Twitter, Facebook, etc and join me as I continue this amazing journey.
What do you want readers to gain from reading
No matter who you are or what you are going through, you have power
over the situation. To the many young people out there who are seeking answers
to situations that they see as hopeless, I remind them over and over to let go
of any limiting beliefs of themselves. There is no such thing as “failure” only
“setbacks” which will lead to greater opportunities. Be confident in who you
are, set your goals and pursue purpose. You have a greatness within you that is more powerful than you know. Trust your instincts, appreciate what you have, enjoy the moments and never ever give up.Follow your dreams. Be willing to place into your imagination anything that you would like to manifest and be unwilling to place anything in your imagination that you do not want to manifest. So, don’t think, “I’m sick” or “I’m
poor.” Contemplate yourself as if surrounded by the conditions in which
you have your greatest desire and it will come to be.
