Spotlight Interview on The Worst Dilemma by Muhammed Sokhna

Contact Question
Where can your fans find you? 

There is a wide variety of ways my fans can reach me.  The main way they can get in contact with me is through my website, They can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Goodreads (which all can be found on my website).

Fun Question
Have you ever Googled yourself? 

Yes I have.  What I find is mostly my author’s information and my books on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. But, couldn’t find my book on Kobo. That’s strange???

Future Works Question
What is in the works for you next? 

Currently, I’m working on The Worst Dilemma Part 2. I’m also working on two fantasy novels and a sci-fi novel.

Writing Question
What do you love about writing? 

I love the whole creation process. I love how I can paint a picture for readers with words.
Which scenes were the hardest to write? For me, the most challenging part to write is the beginning of a scene. I had trouble working on establishing the scenery of a scene before I actually get to the story.

Inspiration Question
Where do you get your inspiration? 

My inspiration comes from my suicide attempt five years ago. Every day, I write to remind myself just how powerful my passion is and how low I was in my past.  I never want to walk through life feeling that low ever again. Writing becomes a remedy for me to get back on my feet. Regardless of what genre I write in, I want my readers to see how hard and passionate I am about the craft of literature.

Reading Question
Which genres do you prefer to read? 

Erotica, Self-Help, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy.

About The Author Questions

How would your friends describe you in 20 words or less? 

A kind, humble, and respectable young man with a special aura that can be felt through a smile.

Who is your mentor? Who do you look up too? 

My mentor for me has been a man by the name of Bob Lamp’l. He has been given me the business fundamentals on how to market my book and how I should handle the publishing side of my business. I look up to him along with many other people in my life. But, my 11th and 12th grade literature teachers are the two people I look up to in regards to writing.

What are your guilty pleasures? 

Hmm… I like to sing like I’m a Grammy award winner singer, knowing that I sound like a cat being dragged down the street by a bus.

Watching a romantic comedy movie when my girlfriend is not around.  

Pretend to be a U.S soldier knowing that I have no combat skills.

Pretend I’m Aragon from The Lord of The Rings (don’t judge me).  

About The Book

Tell us about your new release? 

The first part of The Worst Dilemma is a love story that follows four young African American women who are on the constant search for themselves. The story takes place in the booming city of Atlanta, where many people are calling it the new Hollywood, but for these women, it’s a city that is filled with lies and deception that will forever change them in positive and negative ways.

Aside from the city drama, you have four different women who have problems ranging from sexually to unresolved past dilemmas. Even the men in they encounter in their lives will bring them trouble, but they will also bring them pleasure besides sex, but the sex is still orgasmic.

The book was inspired also by how my generation is lacking creation, in my opinion. The world, in my eyes, is like a gargantuan pie. Everyone can have a slice of this pie, but people think there isn’t enough so they fight over a small slice. There is plenty of money, food, and other resources to go around. We just need to create. After all, that is what we were meant to do.

Book Description:

The spark of all dilemmas is lies and deception

 Just what is love? Is it just a word people use for personal gain? Is it a verb that needs creativity expression in order to understand its full meaning? Or, is it just looking in the mirror?

For Chantrelle Hayfield, love is simplicity. But, she lives in Atlanta, a complex city full of surprises. Like her chiseled, tall, and chocolate next door neighbor, Rasheed Goodmen, who could be a new love interest? But, when her best friend, Ashley Leslie, comes out about her true feelings, will Chantrelle be able to handle the convoluted feelings of others even if that means losing her simplicity?

Chantrelle’s other friends Ariel Samson and Alexis Smith could be able to guide her? But, Ariel needs to learn to be a little selfish and Alexis has to stop scheming to get by. The underworld of Atlanta will test each of these women. Because behind the spark of every dilemma, is lies and deception. Who will be able to see clearly in order to avoid tragedy?

About the Author:

Throughout Mr. Sokhna life, he searched for a purpose. At the age of eighteen, he went through some tough times. His girlfriend left him, his finances were not where they needed to be, his family was struggling to make ends meet, he lost his Hope scholarship, and was desperately trying to find out what was his purpose here on earth. The depression within him started to build and lead to an attempt of suicide.

With the love and support of his family and close friends, he slowly climbed back on his feet, but there was still one remaining problem. He still didn’t know what his purpose was, until he had a vision.

Something within him told him to write down his story. There was resistance, but he followed the hunch. Five thousand words turn into ten thousand. Then ten turned into twenty thousand. Then all of a sudden, twenty thousand words turned into over forty thousand words. He recognized that he found his true passion. It was something that will challenge him. It was something he was yearning for all his life. It was something he could call “his own” and that something was writing.

Mr. Sokhna purpose is to ignite the creativity within people and help them realize that life is much more than what meets the eye. He wants his readers to know that all that we ever done and all we will ever do in this world is just the tip of this iceberg of what could have been done in this life.

The Worst Dilemma Series is one of the three ways he likes to channel his talent to the world. Being able to create erotic content that makes people blush is not only pleasing to him, but it makes him more humble to evolve the craft of literature. Mr.Sokhna will continue to strive to bring more enticing content through The Worst Dilemma Series. A series that will shed light on some of the toughest situations people go through in life. With the added bonus of erotic content.
