Interview with Authors A. Olivier, R. Colon and M. Douglas (Part I)
Marriage was not built on a crystal stair, so why are expectations way up there? After all the glimmer, glamour and glitz, let's talk about what happens after the slipper fits. On this 30th episode of The Author Spot Podcast, we are joined by not one, not two, but three authors (Regina Colon, Alberte Olivier, and Makema Douglas) who have all been to the altar but have come away with three slightly different experiences. They utilize their personal anecdotes to navigate the precedent set by the story of "Cinderella". In "After the Slipper Fits", they dissect whether or not the work stops at being the perfect fit or finding your own Prince Charming.This book is in our Bookshop! ☆A Better Way to Buy Books Online Every Purchase Supports Local Bookstores!Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.
