I had Rebecca here for a very different book, and I can’t wait to read this one!
The book is Louisiana Latte by Rebecca Henry, a Chick-Lit Comedy.
Deb hadn’t flown in over 20 years. In 1989, at the age of 22, Deb was enrolled at Griffiss Airforce Base to become a commercial pilot. Somewhere between dating her yuppie fiancé and planning their wedding in Chicago, Deb developed claustrophobia—a fear of enclosed spaces. I blame the yuppie. Deb couldn’t get on a plane for love that day, but she could do it 20 years later for money. Money was worth dying for.

Hi Rebecca, and thank you for coming by!
So, what inspired you to write the book?
Louisiana Latte was 100% inspired by my diva sister, Deb and a business trip we took together to Louisiana. I’ve always been fascinated by Deb’s audacious personality and electric passion for life. It was never a question of if I would write a book inspired by her character but when.
What do you think about the current publishing market?
Being an author has drastically changed within the last decade. There have been many new developments in the publishing/author world. You have indie authors, ebooks, social media, Amazon and the increasing lack of physical bookstores which always sadness me. I spent my teens in the coffeeshop, backpack, poetry area. The 90’s were all about, grabbing a poetry book, heading to your favorite mom and pop bookshop, finding a comfy couch and getting lost in a read. Now you do it all online. The internet combined with Social media has really been the ink to my pen. It promotes me in ways I couldn’t obtain without the exposure. I used to think if I had a publisher I could sit back and let them do the work. I was so wrong. Writing the book was the easy part, the promotional side is where the blood, sweat and tears come in. I’m constantly working on my promotion. I’m using social media like it was a toothbrush. Vigorously cleaning, constantly polishing my sites trying to gain more exposure so I can show the world my work; my bright smile as I like to think of it. A decade ago your publisher handled everything. The bookstores promoted you. Now, even with a publisher you are your own best friend, and number one advocate. If you don’t believe in yourself, if you don’t dedicate the time and commitment to your work, you risk being lost in cyber space with your book collecting dust.
