CJ Domino, author of Who Does She Think She Is? A Girlfriend’s Guide to Surviving a Breakup Before She Has a Breakdown
(Slightly Ghetto Books)
Who Does She Think She Is? A Girlfriend’s Guide to Surviving a Breakup Before She Has a Breakdown is my own personal testimony of how a woman can over come heartache and pain while rising to a higher level.Â A witty, yet inspirational tale; I promise that this isn’t your ordinary self-help book and my loyal fans will not be disappointed.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write Who Does She Think She Is?
CJ Domino: Let’s just say one nasty divorce, a roller coaster relationship with a former lover and a hurricane named Gustav was all the inspiration that I needed.
JP: What sets Who Does She Think She Is? apart from other books in its genre?
CJ: Most self-help books are very technical, but lack that personal touch from the author. Yeah you’re uplifted, but you don’t understand why the author wrote a book on that particular topic. This book is different because I went deep within myself. I share my flaws when it comes to relationships. I allow the reader into my personal space, so you can see where I am coming from and most importantly why I wrote on this particular topic.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that lead to Who Does She Think She Is? getting out to the public?
CJ: A lot of hard work. Burning the midnight oil when the rest of the world was fast asleep. Not being afraid to take a chance by putting myself out there; naked to the world. And most importantly, believing in my product which means believing in myself.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish Who Does She Think She Is?
CJ: I don’t have a process. When the urge hits me, I just write. Unlike other writers, I don’t need my walls to be a certain color or have candles burning in the room. When the spirit hits me, I move. Who Does She Think She Is? took me approximately 2 weeks to write. I was bored. Hurricane Gustav was about to hit South Louisiana where I live, and I just pulled out my laptop and began to peck away. This was the end result.
JP: What’s next for CJ Domino?
CJ: I am wrapping up my long awaited and highly anticipated follow up novel to Sideline Ho, my first book.Â It should be out in the spring or early summer.
