“No Longer a Bridesmaid!”

A Memoir

By Terry Cato

 Tell us about your current release.

“No Longer a Bridesmaid!” is a memoir that chronicles the seven years that I was single, celibate and believing God for a husband. During those seven years, I observed seven personality types–my own included–that can get in the way of progress toward the altar. I discuss this in the first part of the book and dig more into my personal process in part two of the book.

How did you begin your writing career?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a love of reading and writing and was the resident proof-reader for my family and friends. My earliest memory of writing was in kindergarten when I would go through my coloring books and write sentences describing what I saw on the pages before I started coloring.

Who is your book published through?

I self-published this book through my publishing company, Mahogany Inspiration.

Where can we find your book?

Amazon.com, BN.com, BAM.com, and Christianbook.com; You can also order the title through Barnes & Noble and Books-a-million retail stores for pick-up.

Where did you get the inspiration for this book?

I was inspired to share my testimony of preparation, while attending a marriage enrichment class at church.

How long did it take you to write your current novel?

From start to finish it took about 2 ½ years; actual writing time was about a year.

What else are you working on?

I am currently working on a follow-up book that will focus on getting through the various seasons of marriage.
