Hi Jolanda, so great to have you join us again. For folks who might have missed our earlier conversations, can you please take a minute to briefly introduce yourself?
Hello readers, My name is Jolanda “Jaewrites” Bostick. I was born in New London, Connecticut but raised in Miami, Florida. I am an author/motivator. I have been a self-published author for about three years now. In these last few years, I have published three books and one journal selling over 2,000 copies. I have two merch shirts available, both for men and women. I also launched my very own writing mentoring services to help the inspire individuals who have the passion to write.
What inspired you to become an author?
What inspired me to become an author? Good question. I have always had that passion to write. I’ve been writing since my adolescent years as it was a way to explain how I felt. The more I wrote, I began to find my voice… When I found my voice, the more transparent I became through writing. As I lived my life, I’ve experienced life. There’s a quote that says, “Take a walk in my shoes before you judge me.” For every masterpiece I’ve brought to life, it reflects reality.
What is your motivation to keep striving?
One of my motivations is watching friends and family who struggled to get where they wanted to be in life, succeeded. Why stop? If they can do it, I can do it too! The most important part of my motivation, my children. I work towards my goals daily just to build an empire that I could leave behind for them. Trying to break generational curses… Why stop?
The sky is the limit!
What books and services do you offer that may impact the lives of others?
I’ve published three books and a journal. “Let Love Happen: The Redemption, sheds light on self-love. If you don’t know your worth, who will? In dedication to Mental Health Awareness month I released
UN-INVITED: The Suffering. Don’t allow your life’s circumstances keep you confined.
For Arousal, an Erotica sensation
“OH HELL YES!”
Last but not least, For Self- Reflection, I birthed a venture called The Self-love Projekt. If you have ever lost yourself trying to satisfy others, if you’ve lost yourself just being overwhelmed with life in general, then The Self-love journal is for you. Find time for yourself, heal and recover!
I have launched my writing mentoring service for those who have the inspiration to write books but don’t know where to start. Creative writing services are available. For writers and authors who have written manuscript and need beta reading services or book critiques before publishing, those services are provided as well. In addition to my writing services, I cannot leave the readers out! Without you guys there wouldn’t be any book sales. So with that being said, I also launched two pieces of merchandise, yes, shirts! Books & Beaut’e, a shirt for women and Knight writer, a shirt for the men. These merch shirts are geared to help inspire readers to write, and motivate writers to finish that book and publish it.
