Join national bestselling author Latrivia S. Nelson as she talks about the first book in The Lonely Heart Series, The Ugly Girlfriend and the response she had received from readers across the world. Black and Fat is a segment about the misconceptions of beauty today and how overweight, dark skinned black women are often looked over as ideal mates.
Questions that will be asked: What is the ideal weight anyway? Is there an ideal skin color in the African-American community? Are black women who fall into the above category treated different by their peers and men from other races? Should a woman change her appearance or should society change its preference?What can we do to uplift women of all skin tones through the art of writing?
LaToya Jenkins is the quintessential woman: smart, successful, grounded and determined. She only has one problem socially - she's overweight. As the "big one" of her girlfriends, she often faces rejection from the men of their social circle because of her size and/or her dark skin. And due to a painful past relationship, she gives up on love completely until, she takes on Mitchell "Mitch" O'Keefe as a new client. The Irish born architect needs a professional cleaning service to help him literally clean up his life after a nasty divorce, but he winds up finding a true friend in LaToya, the owner of It's An Honor Cleaning Service. While LaToya is handicapped emotionally by her baggage, Mitch thinks she's the strongest woman he's ever seen and a breath of fresh air in his hectic life. His only goal is to prove to her that his interest in her is more than lust sparked by curiosity. Read the story of two beautiful people in totally opposite ways who help each other see that beauty is not skin deep but soul deep in the first book of Latrivia S. Nelson's Lonely Heart Series, The Ugly Girlfriend.
