Q & A with author C.L. Donley

I Love Diverse Romance


This week, we caught up with author C.L. Donley to ask her a few questions about her latest release, Rich Little Poor Girl. Enjoy!

augaiBANNER BLANKInterview question #1: Describe what your hero and heroine would consider the perfect date night.

Probably dinner in one of the finest restaurants in the city. New York, of course. And then ice cream.

Interview question #2: What does your hero love about your heroine and what does your heroine love about your hero?

Ben loves Cynthia because there’s nothing not to love about her. They meet and have a brief fling in their early 20’s, so he always sees her through the lens of that intense relationship. Cynthia loves that Ben is handsome and compassionate. He’s both dreamy and down to earth.

Interview question #3: For your hero and heroine, was it love at first sight or lust at first sight?

Definitely love.

Step into the Boardroom for Keysha’s 21 Day Success Program: 


Q & A with Keysha Dale


You’re a successful healthcare executive, why did you decide to add author to your role?


During my Rock Bottom experience, I vowed to myself that I would help other women avoid the

mistakes I made that landed me in the situation. I also wanted to encourage women to be tenacious

and remain hopeful that at any given moment God can move you out of the Rock Bottom pit.


What do you hope readers will gain from reading Rock Bottom Success? 


I hope my readers will gain truth; the good, bad and ugly about what it’s like to hit Rock Bottom; my mentors shared and exposed me to things however I really wish they had shared those details of their poor choices in the workplace.


For example, in the book I share that I didn’t find out until after I prematurely resigned from my job

that one of my mentors resigned from the same supervisor for the exact same reason as I did a few

years before me.


How did finding yourself at “Rock Bottom” propel you to success? In what ways did it make you dig deeper to see yourself and the world around you?


Wow! My rock bottom experience was the pivotal point of my life which carried over to my career. I

believed that God has so much for me that it was imperative that he prunes all the things that were

not of him. This is the reason the pearls of wisdom have been incorporated into the book. A pearl is

made from the journey of being molded by an irritant and water that assist with smoothing it to a

gorgeous and elegant pearl.


If you could go back and change anything about your personal journey, what would it be?


Absolutely Nothing! Every iota of my Rock Bottom experience prepared me for my today.


How has having mentors helped you gain clarity about your career direction and overall

purpose in life?


Mentors have brought clarity by allowing me to share ideas off. I also allow them to challenge me

with the goal of identifying the next steps of my career.


How has mentoring others helped you to better understand yourself and women entering the workplace?


It’s helped me to keep learning. Mentees bring out the best in me and help me to see how much I

have matured as a businesswoman.


What is the most beneficial career advice you’ve ever received?


Never forget to assist others as others have assisted you in your professional development.


How do you balance career, family and service?


By taking care of me first; my order is God, me, and then my family. Live life and don’t let it live you.

Girlfriend time and me time is a must!


From a manager’s perspective, how can women in entry-level positions gain the attention of

decision makers when seeking advancement in the workplace?


By staying engaged company projects, volunteer to do various projects and trainings. Do the things

that others do not want to do. Always be willing to sharpen the saw and one day you will be the

most knowledgeable, visible, and noticed person in the workplace.


With harassment prevalent in the work environment, what advice can you offer women who

find themselves on the receiving end of a rude or insensitive coworkers attacks?


A person should stay focused on the bigger picture of why they are at the organization. Oftentimes,

rude coworkers are merely distractions. Find a safe place of coworkers, women or men, to connect

with. It’s always alright to address the rudeness by expressing how you feel. It’s not what you say but

your delivery. As it relates to harassment, always see your HR department and put it in writing to

carbon copy your HR file.


Moving forward, what’s next for you?


I have a workbook that assists those who desire to further their professional development. Also,

exploring future possibilities of having an on-line course on workbook topics.

How’s your reading weekend coming along? #3chickandsomebooks

National Book Club Conference via @curtisbunn #BookNews #Event Update | Atlanta 2019 #3chicksandsomebooks

Where Readers And Authors Come Together…And Depart Friends.
Marissa Alexander
Zane Loses Her Mother, Will Skip 2019 NBCC
Book Lover:
Sad news: Zane, the prolific author and publisher, has bowed out of the 2019 National Book Club Conference after the death of her mother.
We send prayers to her, sister Charmaine Parker, an author and fantastic editor, and their family in this time of grief and sorrow.
In light of Zane’s absence, we have a schedule adjustment that will be repeated at the NBCC: Marissa Alexander will move into the 1:30 p.m. time slot in the Windsor Ballroom on Friday afternoon.
Marissa, you may remember, was forced into the public’s eye when, in 2010, she was arrested and charged with aggravated assault for firing a warning shot to fend off her estranged husband from attacking her. In 2012, she was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Contrast her case to George Zimmerman, who was not convicted in the murder of Trayvon Martin. Alexander and Zimmerman used the same Florida Stand Your Grown law as a defense. Alexander, who hurt no one, got 20 years. Zimmerman killed an unarmed teenager and got off.
Released in 2017, Marissa is an advocate for justice and is working on a memoir that will tell her dramatic, controversial story that is laced with racial and sex biases. She will share some of the behind-the-scenes drama she endured.
Please read below about other important stuff in preparation for our weekend of Literary Bliss.
Peace and blessings,
Curtis Bunn, NBCC founder
Remember: Pre-register for the conference on Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. if you are in Atlanta. It’s better to complete then to lessen the lines on Friday morning, when registration starts at 7:30 a.m.
Attire: Comfortable clothes and shoes for the daily activities. Semi-formal attire for the Featured Authors Red Carpet event, awards dinner and post-dinner dessert party.
Do: Bring your checkbook. As an attendee, you can register for the 2020 NBCC at our largest discount of $225 per person at the conference. Do take advantage of that opportunity as soon as you can, as we can only accept the first 50.
Goal: Please challenge yourself to sit in on at least part of a minimum of six authors you do not know or unfamiliar with. It will enhance your experience for sure. . . and they would greatly appreciate your support.
Raffles: We will raffle books throughout the weekend at the general sessions in the Windsor Ballroom. AND, we will raffle complimentary registration for the 2020 NBCC. Must be present at time of drawing to win.
T-Shirts: By my count, we have two entries into the T-Shirt of the Year Contest: Mind and Soul Alliance and The Lovely Ladies of Literature Book Club. We will vote on them on Friday and announce the winner at the dinner on Saturday night. Also, many of you have custom book club t-shirts. Saturday is the day to wear them.
Important: We are nothing without our health. The Black Women’s Health Imperative and Jefferson Hospital of Philadelphia sponsors the must-attend panel, Conversation of Black Women’s Health on Friday at 11:45 a.m. It will enlighten you on so many vital elements 
Do: Visit as ALL of our authors and exhibitors who will have tables set up outside the Windsor Ballroom. Lots of talent will be on display.
Remember: We added last week wonderful author Ebony Roberts, author of the hot new memoir, The Love Prison Man and Unmade, who will have her “book club meeting” at 2:40 p.m. on Friday. Announcements will be made, as she is not listed in the official program. AND we will have the updated schedule posted in our high-traffic area.
Will share MORE information about the NBCC next week.
Peace and blessings,
National Book Club Conference, Inc., 245 Highland Avenue, Suite 230-171, Atlanta, GA 30307
