Writestream Tuesday: Curvy Goddess Leila Lacey

Ladies, are you tired of impossibly thin romance novel heroines with absolutely no resemblance to real women? Looking for a refreshing take on the genre, where the plots actually have a purpose other than to provide filler between love scenes?

Join me for Writestream Tuesday on September 29 at 1 p.m. Eastern when I welcome Curvy Goddess Romance Author Leila Lacey to the show:

Love comes in many shapes and sizes.  Rising Michigan Author Leila Lacey writes from the heart about the trials and tribulations of love and romance from a curvy woman’s perspective.  With over 12 popular books on Amazon to date, she’s steadily claiming her space as a new romantic fiction author to keep an eye on.

Bow down to the curves.  That’s the philosophy that’s motivated romantic fiction author Leila Lacey as she’s wrote over a dozen popular books taking a hot and exciting look at love and adventure from a strong, curvy woman’s viewpoint.  The books have been received with enthusiasm, and it’s clear the best is yet to come.

“I think it’s important to present strong, beautiful, curvy women that have amazing female to female relationships,”  commented Lacey, on what motivates her.  “If we don’t provide alternative role models for people, they could fall into the trap of not loving who is looking them back in the mirror.  Romantic fiction should entertain, but it should also help build confidence and a great self-image.  I’m trying to cover all these things and more in my books.”

Author Spotlight: Curvy Goddess Leila Lacey

Over at Writestream Publishing, we just posted a feature article with the beautiful, talented #CurvyGoddess Leila Lacey about her books, career, and future plans. Visit Writestream Publishing to read the whole thing, but here’s an excerpt:

Why did you create the Curvy Goddess series?

Originally I didn’t intend for there to be a Goddess Series. The first book in the series is The Vixen. I have always wanted to read books with women that I could relate to, women who are smart, strong, successful, plus size, and loyal. To me that is the average everyday woman that isn’t getting a voice in romance. As I wrote the book and finished I realized these women (the core Goddesses are Vixen, Nya, Camille, Phoenix and Jackie) all had such a strong voice and distinctive personalities it would be cheating the readers not to give them all a book. So the Curvy Goddess Series was born

How have your own experiences shaped your plots?

I try and keep two main things in any plot that I come up with: laughter and a little bit of what myself or another woman may be going through on a day to day basis. While I want to entertain my readers, I want them to feel a sense of sisterhood with other women in the world, which I hope with translate to a movement of women having more respect for themselves and therefore other women.

Are your distinctive Curvy Goddess characters based on real people?

Yes, each woman is loosely based on women that I have known, for a great many years. Now while I know a lot of women, I chose these women because of the level of respect that I have for them faults and all. I guess the books are my tribute to the “type” of women these ladies are.

And if you would like to chat with the #CurvyGoddess, I invite you to join us on Twitter tomorrow night at 8 p.m. Eastern when Leila will also give away four of these beautiful shirts to randomly drawn participant winners. You must chat with us for the full hour to qualify.

Writestream Tuesday welcomes author Leila Lacey on January 27

Romantic fiction author Leila Lacey.

Romantic fiction author Leila Lacey.

Please tune in to Writestream on Tuesday, January 27 at 1 p.m. Eastern when I welcome prolific Michigan-based romance author Leila Lacey to the program. Among others, Leila is the creative mind behind the The Curvy Goddess Series and the The Legacy Series, with a focus on innovative fiction centering on women with curves:

Love comes in many shapes and sizes. Rising Michigan Author Leila Lacey writes from the heart about the trials and tribulations of love and romance from a curvy woman’s perspective. With over 12 popular books on Amazon to date, she’s steadily claiming her space as a new romantic fiction author to keep an eye on.
Bow down to the curves. That’s the philosophy that’s motivated romantic fiction author Leila Lacey as she’s wrote over a dozen popular books taking a hot and exciting look at love and adventure from a strong, curvy woman’s viewpoint. The books have been received with enthusiasm, and it’s clear the best is yet to come.

“I think it’s important to present strong, beautiful, curvy women that have amazing female to female relationships,” commented Leila, on what motivates her. “If we don’t provide alternative role models for people, they could fall into the trap of not loving who is looking them back in the mirror. Romantic fiction should entertain, but it should also help build confidence and a great self-image. I’m trying to cover all these things and more in my books.”

According to the author, Lacey had a quite unexpected entry into writing. Although always interested in being a writer she never explored her skills fully until being convinced to join a writing contest. Within 30 days she had finished her first novel, won the contest, and never looked back. An example of a woman with confidence proving to herself, and the world, what can be accomplished when dreams are pursued actively.
Some of her most popular books include: Phoenix Rising; A Very Curvy Christmas; Dr. Black’s Patient; Love’s Legacy; Shelby’s Awakening; and many, many more.

Readers have responded to her work with enthusiasm.

A.C., recently said about Phoenix Rising in a five star Amazon review, “Wow this book was an emotional roll coaster, but I loved each every twist and turn. I don’t wait to give too much away because people haven’t read it yet. Phoenix is a sexy plus size women who is smart, strong, and loving. I can’t wait to read more about these guys. I give this book five stars and a must read! Keep up the wonderful work Leila!”

Leila is available for interviews and media appearances.
