Author Interview - Why, What, How?
Why the title Completely Whole?
Actually, in the middle of completing my first book, this book came to mind. I had gone through a bad ordeal, which left me broken and scared. In order for me to write about becoming whole, I had to experience it myself. There were areas in my own life that I needed to confront and deal with. Those areas that hindered me from moving forward needed to be addressed. Once God began to point out those areas and I accepted where I was spiritually, the healing and restoration began. The process of becoming Completely Whole is continual for any believer desiring to live, walks, and pursue a life on purpose.
Why did you feel this book needed to be written?
I believe every reader might have something in their lives that continues to either be a reoccurring issue or an area in their lives that they are lacking or feel they have not conquered. To be whole according to Webster is to be “free from injury or wound; to be healed and to be physically sound and healthy.” Because we live in a world in which we experience the ups and downs of life, we deal with heartache and pain; sometimes these experiences leave residue that we have not been able to eliminate.
What is your main message in Completely Whole?
Completely Whole is one of those books that will challenge the reader to do a self-examination of where they are as it relates to their own spirituality. This life-changing book will help readers to transform their spirit, soul, and body through Jesus Christ, so they can live a life of peace, joy, and fulfillment. In Completely Whole, I offer keys to help those who are searching for answers that can lead to a life of complete wholeness: Spirit, Soul and Body. I want readers to come away knowing that they have the ability to live a full enriched life.
What has the reaction been like to your book?
The reviews have been great. Those that have read Completely Whole find it to be a book which speaks to the heart.
How can this book contribute to transforming someone’s life?
A person is transformed when they choose to apply the spiritual principles that are outlined in Completely Whole. Once a person identifies self-destructive mind-sets she is able to deal with those issues that have kept them from walking in victory.
Were there any challenges you faced in the writing process?
I think with all authors there are some types of challenges when trying to finish a book. I’m no exception. There are many distractions that will continue to pull for my attention be it, home, ministry, family and/or job. I try to bring balance in my life so I can prioritize those things that are important. I must set deadlines for myself and stick with those deadlines.
What can someone take away from this book?
Completely Whole guides a reader in undertaking an internal inventory and in making necessary changes of the heart. I write non-fiction, inspirational books; so this means my books should have a lasting effect on a person’s spirit, inspiring and encouraging them to pursue passionately a more fulfilled life. I want my writings to give strength and encouragement in the time of need. Through Completely Whole, I want to engage, stimulate, and spiritually edify them spiritually.
Any words of wisdom for young writers or persons who want to pursue a career in writing?
Promote, promote and promote some more. Learn how to brand and market yourself so that you are known in the industry. Don’t think someone else is going to promote you better than yourself. Create a marketing plan that will expand your territory in reaching readers.
