It takes a real confident woman to rock curves and Catina Sinches knows all about it. “Full-Figure Monologues” is “for every curvy woman called anything but beautiful.” It zooms in on real life issues that full-figured women go through from childhood into adulthood. Although the majority of women are not video vixens, the curvy often are criticized for their size and “Full-Figure Monologues” is giving a voice to those women and to inspire all.
Catina has blended her site with blogs about everyday life that inspire all of her readers. This has given her a great platform for her book that she uses to the best of her advantage. “Full-Figure Monologues” is ready to shed light on trials and triumphs of being full-figured.
Catina Sinches knew that something inspirational could come from her life experiences and other women she knew, thus “Full-Figure Monologues” was born. With poems, short stories and a successful blog on her list of accomplishments, I spoke with Catina just as the soft cover edition of her title was released.
How did the first few days before and after your soft-cover release feel?
A mixture of emotions: exciting and a little stressful. The first few days before you are constantly reviewing the final proof to make sure everything is OK and ready for the printer. The day after the book was released was surreal. You hold your book, take a look at it and say “Wow, I really did it.”
Why did you choose to release the e-book first?
I decided to release the e-book first because it does not require the same formatting as a soft cover. Once it is ready, it is immediately available to be uploaded.
You also write freelance articles, do you find it easier to network your book through journalism contacts?
I think it is the same overall. You just have to put yourself out there to meet new people and explore all avenues.
What is the best advice that you can give to aspiring authors? Something that you’ve learned from experience that no one told you before getting into the literary game.
My advice would be to have patience, stay focused on your passion, and continue to believe in yourself every step of the way.
