2. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down? This book is for any woman who has ever struggled with self-love, doubt, fear, insecurity, and any sort of unhealthy relationship. Through my pain, perhaps I can help others experience beauty and joy again too. I’m hoping to show readers that it is possible to climb out of the darkness of depression and humiliation, just as I have.
3. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers? Remember why you wanted to write a book in the first place and don't give up no matter how frustrating and stressful the process gets.

5. What great challenges did you have in writing your book? The most difficult part of writing this book would have to be remembering every detail of the past. Thought my engagement ended three years ago, I still had to dig deep top replay memories that had been erased and shoved into my subconscious. It was quite cathartic.
6. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours? In a world where our young women may not have the guidance or wisdom to teach them to love themselves first, this book will not only provide them a story, but it will give them therapeutic tools to heal a broken heart.
