Welcome to my post for the A Beautiful Struggle blog tour! I have a guest post from the author for you, as well as a giveaway for a signed print copy of this lovely book. But, let me first introduce the book:
Right now she is content focusing on work, study and training while hanging out with her best friend David Taylor, a womaniser with a heart of gold that would do anything for Katrina – except watch her get hurt again.
That is, until the dashing Elliot Roberts, a junior solicitor from her work, shows an interest in her despite their office’s ‘No Dating’ policy.
Katrina struggles with following her heart or following her mind and has trouble seeing where her heart truly lies.
Guest Post:Tall Women:
First of all I want to say a big thank you to Farrah for hosting me today, it’s an honour to guest post on your blog.
While I’m trolling the internet I come across a lot of people talking in forums about how they wish the women in their romances weren’t all so perfect and I have to agree.
I love reading romance, they are my absolute favourite form of escape but I have to admit that I get a little frustrated that the leading ladies are always so tiny and the men are always so tall and huge – that’s only because I’m almost six foot tall myself and it’s really hard to find a guy in real life who is taller than you and attracted to tall women as well. There is a bevy of short guys for you to choose from but the pool of height suitable men, is very small when you’re a tall lady.
So I guess I’ve got a bit of a bee in my bonnet! Lol
That’s why I make my leading ladies tall, I also make them imperfect – they are beautiful in their own right but, they aren’t going to be gracing the covers of fashion magazines any time soon.
Katrina, the leading lady of A Beautiful Struggle, is over six foot, she is very thin and muscular, flat chested and scarred – she doesn’t feel beautiful, she feels awkward and seeks solace in her sporting ventures.
Sure I could have made her tiny and perfect, but I don’t know what tiny and perfect feels like, so it wouldn’t have been believable - I wanted her to seem like someone we all may have met at some point in our lives. Hopefully I did my job well!
Thanks for reading!
Up for grabs is a signed copy of A Beautiful Struggle. Open internationally. Ends April 15.
