Cap’n Joe: Hello, everyone. I’d like to welcome, upcoming new author, Sheila Bliss. Is Bliss your real last name?
Sheila: Hi Joe. Thanks for allowing me to talk about my writing and my book. I’m grateful for the opportunity. Yes, Joe, Bliss is my real last name. And I’m all about finding and following your bliss.
Cap’n Joe: Have you found yours?
Sheila: Yes, Joe, I have. I’m really excited to tell you about it.
Cap’n Joe: Well, don’t let me stop you.
Sheila: Since becoming a writer, I’ve found my bliss. I love to write. I love to write stories about flawed characters, the choices they make in life and how those choices impact their life.
Cap’n Joe: Hmmm…I’m sensing a theme here, or possibly a title to a book?
Sheila: Ha! You’re quick Joe! Yes, the title of my book is Choices.
Cap’n Joe: Why don’t you tell us a little about the book?
Sheila: Thanks, Joe, I’d love to. My story is about a woman trapped in a loveless marriage and abused emotionally. She’s at a crossroads in her life and needs to make a choice. When is enough…enough? is a question I think everyone asks from time to time. When do you give yourself the permission to put yourself first when the person you’re married to, isn’t involved emotionally in the relationship. Choices is a story about just that…choices, mixed in with suspense, addictions, redemption, oh and let’s not forget some steamy romance.
Cap’n Joe: Steamy romance, you say!
Sheila: Yes, steamy romance, Joe. It’s a great weekend read for the beach, especially since we still have a lot of summer left on the calendar, here, in the States.
Cap’n Joe: That sounds exciting! Choices seems to contain a bit of everything.
Sheila: It certainly does Joe.
Cap’n Joe: Where can we find your book, Choices?
Cap’n Joe: Are you working on anything else at the moment?
Sheila: Oh, I’m so excited you asked that question! Yes! I am! I’m currently writing the sequel to Choices, titled Forgiveness. It’s being edited by Lori Lesko. I’m so excited to be working with her and I’m busy typing away. Forgiveness is a choice, too. You need to chose to forgive those that hurt you, everyday. It’s not something that comes and falls in your lap. Forgiveness takes work and commitment. You need to make CHOICES to accept and maintain FORGIVENESS.
Cap’n Joe: Well, they both sound very exciting, Sheila. Thank you, for taking time out from your busy day to answer my questions. I’ve enjoyed getting to know a lot more about you. It’s a pleasure having you join my blog.
Sheila: Thank you very much Joe, for the opportunity. I’m very grateful to you for hosting my interview on your blog and giving me the chance to talk about Choices. I hope that your readers, if they are interested, will pick up my story Choices and find encouragement through the flaws.
