Tina Martin - The Baby Daddy Interviews - Author Interview

My thanks to Tina Martin for stopping by Tribute Books Reviews & Giveaways for an author interview about her book, The Baby Daddy Interviews.

Author Interview

1. How did you come up with the title?
The title was just something that I came up with in a brainstorming session. I was basically looking for something that had never been done, and The Baby Daddy Interviews was born.

2. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I try to add a message in all of my novels. In The Baby Daddy Interviews, I stress how important it is for the main character, Breonna Morris, to find a father figure for her child. I think it’s important for children to have a male role model in their lives; especially considering the statistics of children from fatherless homes.

3. How much of the book is realistic?
None of the novel is realistic, though it reads like a real-life drama.

4. If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your book?
I would not change a single thing. I love the emotions of the characters, the setting as well as the attitudes of the men Breonna interviews.

5. What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The hardest part of writing was determining the fate of the characters.

6. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I had fun writing this novel. I remember looking forward to every day I got to work on it.

7. Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I began writing poetry fresh out of high school, then after taking a creative writing class in college (that I loved) I began novel writing. I have been writing for over 10 years.

8. Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
I have a lot of favorites. One of them is Emily Giffin. I love her books because she writes about everyday life and issues that I think most people can relate to.

9. Tell us your latest news.
My novel, The Baby Daddy Interviews, was just released March 1, 2012! It is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble and also on Kindle and Nook. I am currently working on my fourth novel and will have more details about that on my website:

10. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I would like to take this time to say thank you to all readers who support indie authors. Also, I look forward to your comments and reviews on The Baby Daddy Interviews.

A funny, yet touching story of one woman’s determination to find a father for her baby…

Breonna Morris thought her marriage to Tyler was perfect. Never mind all the hours she spent at work. Never mind the time she wasted shopping and partying with her best friend, Courtney. Never mind being a wife. She was living the married life as a single woman, while Tyler slowly drifted away.

Breonna’s world turns upside down when she wakes up one morning to find that Tyler is gone. Desperate to find meaning in his disappearance, she reaches out to him but Tyler makes it very clear that he wants nothing else to do with her, that he’s tired of being a single, married man. He’s moved on. Breonna is devastated, realizing that not only is she suddenly husbandless, but she’s also pregnant.

Courtney gives her a crazy idea to put an ad in the local paper to search for a father figure for her baby. Breonna follows through with the idea and is excited with the responses she receives. She even conducts interviews with the most qualified candidates. One in particular catches her eye, Vaughn Ramos – a sexy, tall Puerto-Rican papi who wants to play daddy in more ways than one. There’s only one problem – Tyler doesn’t know that she’s pregnant.
