  • How did your writing journey begin?

I started writing as a pre-teen. I was a quiet child growing up with a lot on my mind, so I resulted to writing poetry.

  • Was writing something you always wanted to accomplish as one of your goals?

Yes, most definitely.

  • What do you want your readers to take away when reading your books?

My number one message for my readers is for them to know that they have the power to speak lyfe no matter what’s going on around them.  I want them to be empowered and to know they have a voice.  It is very imperative that they know how much their voice matters.

  • How many books have you written?

I’ve written and published one book and co-authored on one book.

  • Do you plan to publish more in the future?

I sure do!

  • Have you had any book signings? If so, how did that go? If not, do you plan to have one to connect with new readers?

Yes I’ve had a few book signings and I’ve also sold my books at my events. I think book signings are an awesome opportunity for your readers and supporters to get to know you as both an Author and a person. They get to hear about your mission and I truly believe people support purpose. I do plan to have future book signings because I love connecting to new people and I also plan to add on to my current book.

  • What marketing strategies do you use for your books?

For my marketing strategies I use social media to promote my book, I host events that are centered or include my tagline to help promote my book and I’ve also added shirts to support my Speak Lyfe movement.

  • Are there any challenges getting people to support you?

Yes, unfortunately. I’m grateful for my stream of supporters, however, it definitely can be a challenge.

  • What is your writing style like? Any special places you like to go and write at?

It really depends on what I’m writing. Sometimes I like to write in an open space or outside. At times I like to write to music, it helps me to stay in my zone. My ideal writing location outside of Starbucks would be near water on a beautiful day.

  • How can readers connect with you and buy your books?

They can reach me on fb as Bianca Lynnette Speak Lyfe, IG: Speaklyfe_bianca, my books are available on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble as well as my website Iambiancalynnette.myshopify.com

  • Tell the readers more about the types of books you write? Are some of them based on real life experiences?

“Speak Lyfe: 31 Days to a New You!” will always be a personal favorite of mine. When I was going through a dark place in my life, I literally had to look myself in the mirror and say these exact affirmations everyday for 30 days. This along with daily prayer helped to save my life. In the “Walking in my Identity” book collab I shared on a very personal point in my life that stemmed from me learning to embrace my voice. Overall I prefer to write both about my life experiences and on empowerment but I won’t limit it to that because you never know what God has planned for you.

7 Reasons Why Life is Amazing

We all have one life to live, so why not live it to the fullest?!  Here are some great reasons on why life is so darn amazing!

  1. Living up to your Dreams!  You are finally getting the chance to do what you have always dream of as an entrepreneur or a visionaire.  Take one step closer to your dreams and then stand on top of the world!
  2. Doing what you Enjoy the most!  Just like what I’m doing now; writing on a motivational piece that will empower you all that are reading 🙂 Without life, I wouldn’t be able to do just that!  Whatever you enjoy doing in life, JUST DO IT! Whether it is walking your dog every day, mowing the lawn, surfing or maybe making jewelry, continue to live up to your potential and enjoy your hobbies!
  3. Having Freedom! Other countries doesn’t have this type of privilege just like in the United States, but we all have the freedom and luxury to do what we want to do (just don’t break any laws doing it lol) and enjoy them to the fullest!  Don’t you just love being free and going outside to smell the roses anytime that you want to?
  4. Being Sociable!  You can go to your favorite spot every weekend and just have a great time with friends or family.  Living your life while being sociable and having a great time! Life can be just that good!
  5. You are still alive! What a great reason this is to why life is so amazing! You always hear on the news that innocent lives are taken away from people that haven’t committed any crime or hasn’t done anything to get caught up with the wrong crowd.  From children to adults, lives are taken away every second.  So be grateful that you are still alive and that you still have breath in your body! Life is too short so never take it for granted!
  6. Accomplishing your goals! Just like your dreams, you can achieve all of your goals one day and one step at a time!
  7. Create Memories! What type of world would you live in if you couldn’t create any memories? Create special moments of your life and each year and live up to your expectations in life.  Whether they are bad memories, sad memories or good memories, it’s still part of your amazing life!

So now do you see why your life is so amazing? 🙂 Live to Learn and Learn to Live!

life is amazing
