Dis Ma Hair: Do Black Blonds have more fun?
Joani Ward, author of You Don't Have To Be Broke: So Wake Up, Shake It Up, and Make A Change, shifts from writing about numbers and entrepreneurship to writing about real life experiences in Black Girls Gone Blonde: Stories From A Newly Discovered Sisterhood, to be launched on October 15, 2014
The question: Is it true that blondes have more fun? African American women are coming out of the woodwork with blonde hair. They are beautiful, bold, blonde, and would probably answer yes to this question. Black Girls Gone Blonde captures real life experiences of 8 women who live in the DC metropolitan area. The stories captured include challenges and obstacles that have been overcome. Stories such as the challenges of living in Potomac Gardens (the projects) and hating it, a career that almost ended due to a terrible accident, parental abuse, drug addiction, and molestation.
Every story has a positive outcome. Black Girls Gone Blonde: Stories From A Newly Discovered Sisterhood shows that anything is possible, there is light at the end of the tunnel, it’s never too late to pursue your dreams, and that dreams do come true. Readers might see themselves in the women interviewed for the book, but they will also see how exactly each of them were able to overcome the challenges in their lives.
Joani Ward is also the author of three other books, Business Quotations Every Entrepreneur Should Know: 52 Weeks of Motivation and Inspiration, Create Your WordPress Website in 27 Minutes: Believe Me It's Possible, and How To Write and Self Publish Your Own Book: 7 Steps To A Finished Product in 30 Days.
