Interview with Tranea Prosser, author of Celibacy, What Was I Thinking?

Today we are interviewing Tranea Prosser, author of the humor/motivational book Celibacy, What Was I Thinking?

Describe the plot of your book in a few sentences.
My book takes you on my journey to learn about making better relationship decisions and why I am celibate and how to maintain the lifestyle.

Who (age, gender, etc) do you think would most appreciate this book?

I believe young ladies ages 12 and up and women of all ages.

What inspirations contributed to this book?

From my personal experience, I hope to be able to save some women from making un-wise decisions regarding their relationships with men.

Who was your favorite character to write?

All of the men I never dated.

How long have you been writing?

I started journaling in 2000 and had about five journals to review in deciding what content to add to the book.

What genre do you read most frequently?

Non-fiction romance and biographies.

How do you feel about the increasing popularity of ebooks?

I think it’s great and people are so busy that they want to carry around less bulk and reading on the go will fit into everyone’s lifestyle. 

What is the most impactful experience you have had with a fan?
The youngest fan I had was 10 years old and she was so excited to buy my book. I was thinking about how smart she will be in discovering her self-worth and pray that she mentor’s other young ladies in her age group.

Have your family and friends been supportive of your writing?

Yes, my family has been very supportive and proud of me.

Is there any aspect of writing you don't like (e.g. editing)?

Editing and re-writing. I feel like a part of my voice is being pampered with!

Have you ever had writer's block? If yes, how'd you deal with it?

I deal with writer’s block by not rushing or forcing myself to write anything. I focus on other projects and usually when I get something else started like planning a conference, or a comedy show, then the urge to write for a different topic makes its presence known.

Do you write with a computer, typewriter, or pen and paper? Why do you use this tool?

I use all of them because it depends on where and whom I am speaking with when an idea strikes. I always keep a small notebook in my purse. I keep a pad by the telephone. When I am ready to put all the ideas together, I use my computer.

Is there anything else you'd like potential readers to know about your book?

It is safe for men to read because it is not about male-bashing!
