                                                            The Reflections of Light for Daily Living: A Book of Affirmations for the Ambitious
Going through a crisis in life and wanting a change in the way you live your life ? Or how about , the fact that you have taken a step back and decided it's time to re-evaluate yourself and what you stand for and how you live your life day by day.

Today's author is Dr. Tiffany Brown and she is currently on a blog tour around Virtual space to promote her new book "The Reflections of Light for Daily Living: A Book of Affirmations for the Ambitious. Inside , she has a month by month plan and every single day , a page to live by and improve your life. At the moment , I am finding the positive affirmations side of life interesting and have decided to set myself a goal and try and follow it day by day and Im sure a change will be seen as a friend of mine borrowed an idea that she read in a different book about complaining and what you do is to make a bracelet and put it on your wrist and try and get through 21 days without complaining , the catch is that everytime you complain , you have to change the bracelet to the other wrist and start at 1. Sounds easy at first, but you'll be surprised at how hard a thing like that is to do.

Dr. Tiffany Brown has provided with us today some interview questions and answers and later on in the post I'll talk about her book "The Reflections of Light for Daily Living".

Interview With the Author:

How did you start out your writing career?

I have always liked to write. But I really begin to write more through my Twitter page from my mayoral campaign. I started with leaving famous quotes and begin to gradually share my thoughts about life for the ambitious.

What did you learn while writing this book?

I learned not to take things so personally. Most decisions are based on individual personal ambition. Ambition is never right or wrong; it is the inner drive to have something more in your life. But sometimes your ambition can clash with others. You must not take it personally.

I also learned that having just me is enough because of God’s love. I now feel comfortable in my own skin; imperfections in all. I may not be perfect but I am attempting to be a best that I can. And that is enough as long as I try to stay aligned with God.

What did you hope to accomplish with this book?

Never give up on your goals in life but allow God to revise or tweak them into being aligned with his Will. Every failure is not a nightmare and every opportunity is not a blessing. Some failures can be blessings; some opportunities can be nightmares.

Allow God completely into your heart and watch your life begin to expand in the most amazing ways. I trust God in completely different way than before because I now have a testimony that I never had before. There is nothing like spectacular fall to truly give you a new relationship with God.

Is the “writer’s life” what you thought it would be?

No. It definitely a lot more business than I thought. You have to really hands on and have a strategy to encourage book sales.

Which five characters (can be from books, movies, or tv shows) would you invite over for dinner and why?

The five characters would be:

• Claire Huxtable (Cosby Show) because of her poise and thoughtfulness
• Mark Zuckerberg (Real person and Social Network Movie) for his passion and drive
• Juror No. 8 (12 angry men the movie) for his tenacity and perseverance
• Bourne (The Bourne Ultimatum ) for his intelligence and ability to think fast on his feet
• Jesus (The Bible) for his unwavering faith

What are three things you wish you’d known before you reached where you are now?

The three things are business strategy, marketing and publicity. Each are incredibly important when you building yourself as a brand. I don’t think I really understood this component when I was younger.

Can you give us one do and one don’t for those aspiring to be a writer?

One do is to be to be strategic about selling your books. Hiring your own publicist may be a good idea to ensure you get your desired response. Don’t assume you’re a major priority just because you have book deal.

One don’t is similar to the do. Do not wait on the publicity department for your publisher . Do not rely on your publisher for everything. You can miss out many additional revenue streams by waiting on your publisher to act.

What one thing about writing do you wish other non-writers would understand?

That it is not as easy as it looks and it is a emotional experience. You are really putting yourself out there; good and bad. You are allow yourself to be complete transparent and it can be scary experience.

What was the best advice you’d ever gotten about the publishing industry? The worst?

The best advice was to hire my own publicist and the worst advice was not worry about digital rights. The digital rights are extremely important and you should try to retain them if you can.

What is something readers would be surprised you do?

That I listen to an appalling amount of rap. I listen to very little R &B. I am big fan of Young Jezzy, Jay Z, TI , Kayne and Drake.

If you could be a character from any book you've read, who would you be?

It would be Nico or Victory in Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell. They are such strong woman but are human as well.

Our theme this month is The Business Of Writing. Can you offer any advice about the business side of writing?

Make sure set goals for yourself and do your homework to achieve them. If you want to be a on the New York best seller list, they create an strategy to get there. Do not leave your fate in someone else’s hands.

Oprah always asks, What do you know for sure?

That as long that I have God in my life that I will be fine.

Can you give us a sneak peek of your next book?

My next book will be a book of prayers. There are some prayers in this book and it was such overwhelming positive response to them via Twitter that the next book will be just prayers. I also may do a cookbook but that depends on my schedule during the holiday to do the legwork.

I love how you have included your life stories onto the pages and you are so relatable; what has been one of your biggest challenges in life and how did you overcome it?

My biggest challenge was bouncing back from my failed mayoral bid that was a disappointment on a professional and emotional level. It was completely humiliating because I was marginalized and misunderstood throughout the campaign. I felt like people didn’t get me; they just stereotyped me.

There were many people that I had supported in the past that didn’t return the favor added to the humiliation. I was very disappointed in people that I had respected and loved in every facet of my life. It definitely changed the way I see the world.

I was able to overcome it all through forgiveness. God forgives us for all our transgressions and I was forced to do the same. All the inspirational stories I wrote are from perspective of a reader; I wrote what I needed to hear at those desperate, heart wrenching times in my life. I wrote to encourage myself and now decided to share it with others.
