Re: Big Girls Won't Cry – my first story featuring a plus-sized heroine.
Hello, everybody! I hope everyone is well today. If not, I pray that all will be well in your lives very soon.
This email is your official reminder about my upcoming live interactive story. Big Girls Won't Cry will be half free and half paid. The latter half will go to my private VOD blog. More details about the VOD blog will be posted on my free Secular blog.
In the meantime, here are some basic details about the story:
· When does the story begin? September 21st 2009
· Where can it be found online? http://storiesbymichelledodson.blogspot.com/ (My secular blog)
· Blurb: They forced the wrong woman into prostitution this time. FBI agent Subrina Rayelle is on a mission to take down the people that coerced her best friend into prostitution and then beat her to death when she tried to escape.
Refusing to cry even one tear of grief for Leesha until all guilty parties were brought to justice, Subrina set her sights on Nevada where the crime took place. If only she hadn't met her soul-mate during this undercover mission. If only her soul-mate wasn't connected to the people that caused Leesha's death. Now how was Subrina going to successfully complete her assignment?
Special note to my Edgy Inspirational readers: Since Big Girls Won't Cry is one of my Secular stories, the heat level will be higher and some of the adult situations will be more intense. If you prefer to sit out this story because of those things, I completely understand. However, if you do decide to join us, you will definitely find a plethora of good morals and nuggets of wisdom embedded throughout the story. In short, there's something for everyone even in my Secular stories.Hope to see you all there on Monday!

In case you’re reading this and haven’t signed up for my updates, please do so at this time by clicking here.
I’d like you to participate in polls I’m conducting so I may have a productive following and really get to know my readers.
I’ve been out of the loop for a while.
A long while and I know that’s been awful for me and I’m so sorry.
Life happens and with three kids Murphy’s Law takes no prisoners.
So in that regards I need your help again.
In 2010, things are going to change for me. I’m going to be published as a traditional author and I need to sell books to make a good income so I can really start to do this full time.
I want to do this full time. I think if I could get rid of the full time benefit job and devote myself to my writing, I could develop beautiful stories that would leave me and YOU breathless.
Like I said, I’m asking for your help.
You see that I have the ability to produce great works of literature. I’m no Jane Austen or any other great writer… yet!
First item to help me with is to answer this question….

Meet new author Monique D. Mensah
Monique D. Mensah is a native Detroiter with an innate love for the written word. Her talent for writing was first discovered by her third grade teacher when she declared her dream to become a published author. After earning a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Michigan she completed her first manuscript, Who Is He To You. Shortly after, she launched Kisa Publishing and published her debut novel. Monique now resides in Southfield, MI where she is raising her daughter and working full-time as an enrollment counselor for a private university. She is also a freelance copywriter and copyeditor and is currently working on her second novel.
Book: Who Is He To You by Monique Mensah
Simone, a shockingly beautiful teen, is on the downward spiral of destruction as she battles incest and self-hatred and she finds cutting to be the only way to relieve her pain. Jessica lives the upscale lifestyle of a refined society matron. She strives to be the perfect wife, but without her husband, Ross, she would be nothing more than the abused stripper he rescued 16 years ago. Ryan, a fiery thirty-something, is quickly slipping into depression and prescription drug addiction as her boyfriend, Anthony, artfully dangles the empty promise of marriage. As the shattered lives of three very different women collide, they find that they have one thing in common: they are all in a desperate fight to hang onto love. Experience their emotional journey through to the shocking end where these women will experience injury, imprisonment and even death while crafting new lives from the ashes of their ruination.
