Eris, you have recently been promoting your book ‘Break-Up Emergency’, what has that experience been like?

Yes, I have been promoting the book on a local level. The response has been wonderful! People are really gravitating to the book. Not only because the cover is really great but because what is in it really works. It feels really good when people read the book and tell me that it is helping or that they were inspired by certain points. I love it when they say that they feel like I was talking directly to them or telling their story. Also, when I get another client because they liked what the book had to say. That means that we did our job. We haven’t done any other PR yet and are looking forward to. We are taking meetings with different publishers. It is a lot of hard work. Ultimately it is worth it when we have accomplished our mission.

Tell us a little bit about the book and what inspired it.

My own personal experience and break-ups. I have had my heart broken and broken and broken. I have been lied to, cheated on, deceived, coerced, cajoled, tricked, cast aside, seduced, corrupted, convinced, and what I call man-ip-ulated…Then the Sleeping Beauty within me woke up and I realized that the only way things were going to change for me is if I began to help me help me.

Healing my broken heart did not happen overnight but becoming more conscious did. I discovered many healing tools through my break-ups, and as I worked them they evolved into the exercises you will find in the book. The more I worked them, the more I understood myself. They inspired me because I began to see results. I felt better, more personally powerful. I became confident and secure. I began to realize that I was not a victim. I found the gifts that my relationships brought me. I found my life’s purpose through my so called “failed” relationships. I did the work within and it worked! I decided that I wanted to share it with others.

So would you say that this book is more for girls than guys?

This is a good question. Statistics show that women are more likely to buy and read self-help books. However, I have had many men interested in buying the book. In fact I have different male clients because they read Break-Up Emergency. My fiance and business partner, Clayton Winans, is my co-author. He adds a male perspective, which is a plus.
