Interview and Giveaway The Worst Dilemma by Muhammed Sokhna

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

The Worst Dilemma Part 1 is the 1st installment of my eBook series. It’s my first book and I’m very happy that I actually got the chance to publish my work. The eBook series follow four young African American women as they try to find themselves in the big city of Atlanta. Some find love, but also find trouble.   

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

Yes. A few characters in The Worst Dilemma Series, Ashley, Chantrelle, and Rasheed, are characters that either share characteristics of people I know or qualities I wish I had within my own temperament. But, as I begin writing the story down, the character took life of their own.

Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?

I want my readers to understand that we all got problems. Some people got it worse than others. But, no matter what our situation is, we can get through it. Some people we care about get hurt. We ourselves sometimes get hurt. But, we will grow. After all, that is what life is all about, change and growth.

When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?

I like to practice MMA (mix martial arts). I also like video game (yes, I’m a kid. Oh well.) I also like to be intimate with my fiancĂ©, emotionally as well as sexually. I also like meditation. It keeps me grounded and takes me away from the worldly problems in my life.

Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?

Maya Cross’s Locked series.

Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet?

Fantasy and Sci-Fi novels. But, I will have novels in both of those genres within the year.

Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?

Chantrelle Hayfield. She’s just a young woman who wants simplicity in her life. I envy her because her demure attitude brings her peace, until Ashley decides to complicate things. Rasheed didn’t make things easier either. Oops…Spoiler!

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?

The Worst Dilemma Part 2 will be released in February. What I can tell all readers is that this part of the series will bring all the lies and deception into a huge climax. People will change and major events will happen.

What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?

The Worst Dilemma Part 2 is set to come out in February. Part 3 is set to come out in April/May. I’m also craft two new titles for The Worst Dilemma brand that will most likely come out late this year.  

What is in your to read pile?

Too many books ranging from writing books to enhance my skills to pleasure books I haven’t had the time to read yet.

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.
