Today I wanted to share about this wonderful person I met named April. She’s a blogger, beauty expert and a genuinely fun and sweet person to hang out with. I met her at the D’Lish Cafe event I told y’all about.
She told me she recently published a book. I told her I love reading and reviewing books on my site. So we decided to meet up and chat about her book Shine Beautifully.
This book was a pleasure to read because April shares so many personal quotes, stories and poems. You”ll relate to what she says.
I have 1 copy to giveaway–courtesy of April. Thank you! ANNDDD –To make it fun I’m also giving away a $20 gift card to Sephora. 🙂

My favorite part of doing book reviews is interacting with the authors–when I do get a chance. Here’s a Q & A with April!
What inspired you to write your first book?
The response I have received on social media from sharing my personal stories is what inspired me. I was amazed at how what I was sharing actually helped people get through their own obstacles. I decided to put all that content and more together to really share what helps me grow, heal, and remain motivated in my own life.
What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The hardest part of writing my book was knowing once I put it out there for the world to see, I was sharing some really raw emotions I had not shared with anyone.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Yes, I learned that when you really put your mind to something that was a childhood dream, it can be done!
Where can we buy your book?
You can buy my book at https://www.createspace.com/6085754.
Who is your favorite author?
My favorite author at the moment is Erin Van Vuren.
What are you reading now?
I am reading Erin’s book Brain Food for Big Kids.
Don’t forget to stop by on Facebook. The winner will be announced on Facebook so it’d probably be a good idea to “like” my page–just saying 😉 The winner will also be emailed or private messaged and asked for their home address so I can mail the book and gift card. Good luck 🙂
