Confessions By Sasha Campbell
 
 
Radio personality Nikki has been doling out details of the ups and downs of her marriage to Donovan for nearly a decade, and her listeners love her in-your-face relationship advice. But despite all the help she gives others, her own relationship is on the rocks. The good times are missing—and so is the sex. So when Kenyon comes into her life, he’s too tempting to resist. Nikki's best friend Trinette thinks Kenyon might be too good to be true. And she would know—because she knows men. Lots of them. She may be married to a successful CFO, but he travels a lot, so she fills her empty bed with the fine men of St. Louis.... Both friends may now stand to lose everything in a sexy, suspenseful tale of two marriages put to the ultimate test

 

 

 

 

Meet Sasha Campbell, Author of Confessions

 

 

 

 

Q:  When did you decide you wanted to write?

 

A:  I’ve always kept a journal…under lock and key. Lol.  Once I started eavesdropping on dressing room confessions that were way more appealing than fiction, I decided it was my destiny to tell those stories. Before long I had the first full-length story ready to be published.

 

Q:  How many novels in all have you written?

 

A:  I have written two so far, Confessions and Suspicions. I am currently working on my third.

 

Q:  Do you have a favorite?

 

A:  So far Confessions is still my favorite. It is my first book, after all. I think first loves always hold a special place in your heart.

 

Q:  How long did it take you to write your first novel?

 

A:  Six months. Once I got started I couldn’t stop until the book was done.

 

Q:  Where do you get your inspiration for your stories? Are the characters based on real people?

 

A:  I am eavesdropper. What can I say? While sitting in a restaurant I overheard a conversation that trigger an idea for my second book. All my stories are like baking a cake. A pinch of this and a pinch of that, a dash of reality and a whole lot of drama and before long a masterpiece has been created.

 

Q:  After writing your first novel, did you self-publish?? If so, how was that experience?

 

A:  Self-publishing was never a consideration for me because I knew I didn’t have the time to invest in self-promotion. I was fortunate enough to land a contract with Kensington Publishing.

 

Q:  What feedback have you received from fans?

 

A:  So far the feedback has been positive. I am truly feeling the love. I wasn’t sure my readers would be so accepting of both me and my work. It’s a relief to hear they are.

 

Q:  What authors do you admire? Did one of them inspire you?

A:  I admire Mary B. Morrison. She is an amazing woman who reminds me so much of myself. Very uninhibited. Not ashamed of expressing her sexuality. We’ve never met but she inspired me to be who I am. Before, I was trying to create a façade. Pretending to be someone I was not. It was then that I discovered why I was having such a hard time doing interviews or answering reviewer’s questions. It was because I was trying to be someone else. Not anymore. I have a Bachelor’s degree in business administration but my background is in adult entertainment. I’m a business woman first but I know how to get down to business when needed. In other words, I manage the staff but I have no problem slipping on a pair of stilettos and swinging around a pole if duty calls. I am who I am and that is how I have become the confident woman I am today.

 

Q:  Is writing your only passion?

 

A:  I’m also passionate about pole dancing. Yep. Pole dancing. Every morning, while others rush off to the gym, I wake up and slip into a pair of five inch heels, head into the guest room where my husband willingly installed a pole for me and work it out. Dancing clears my head and helps me start my day off on the right foot…literally.

 

Q:  Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

 

A:  Still writing. With every book I feel I am getting better at the craft and that’s important. I believe there is always room for improvement.

 

Q:  What advice would you give aspiring authors?

 

A:  Do you! Write what you know instead of writing what you thinking readers want to read. It’s got to be true to you otherwise it is going to come across fake. For instance, I can’t write teen literature or Christian fiction because the way I think is way too raw and uncensored, but for others that’s their talent. Just keep it real.

 

Q:  What would you like readers to learn from your stories?

A:  My books focus on how things in our past can ruin our futures if you continue to ignore the issues. I try to insure a message is in every story but at the same time I want to entertain. I’m am entertainer by trade who believes in giving her customers their money’s worth. Lol. Seriously, writing this book was like choreographing a pole dance routine—arousing. I want my customers to feel satisfied. I believe my books will do just that.

 

Q:  Are you working on another novel? What is it about?

A:  Absolutely. The title of my second book is Suspicions. As the owner of Situations, the hottest beauty salon on the south side of Chicago, Noelle Gordon has a direct line to the private lives of her clients. But when an abandoned baby girl appears on her doorstep, Noelle finds herself at the center of a personal drama. Could the baby be her husband’s? Or maybe her grown son’s? Both men deny it—but Noelle is sure one of them is lying…

 

Q:  Where can people purchase your books? Do you have a website?

 

A:  Confessions can be found at bookstores nationwide.  Readers can follow my delicious blog "I have a confession" or even befriend me on facebook.  Links can be found on my website at www.sasha-campbell.com
