[With today's release of Priceless Inspirations, Antonia "Toya" Carter gives you her Top 5 reasons to bookmark this new memoir.]
1. I Show You Mine
The first reason why you should buy it is because it's a good book. I shed a lot of my experiences that I went through in here, such as teen pregnancy. I talk a little bit about domestic violence and my upbringing. I just feel a lot of young girls will be able to relate to a lot of the things I share in the book and get something out of it.
2. Short & Sweet
The next reason you should buy it is because it's a good read. It's not too many pages for you to have to go through, about 200 pages. Nowadays kids don't really like to read anymore, so I made it easy to read. I made sure to take certain parts out of my journal and turn it into a book. I didn't take everything out of my life, just certain parts. So with those, I decided to make them chapters in my book.
3. Behind The Limelight
I think you should get this because I took my personal life and really turned it into a book. I looked back at when I was younger and everything I have been through and really decided to take all of those experiences. With everything that I've gone through, I took it all and turned it into a book for everybody to read. It's very personal and will show people another side of my life.
4. The Journey
It was a bit of a process to get this out. I had to go out and find someone to publish it, but the job eventually got done and we were able to put it out. The hardest part was probably getting the publishing done because this isn't a tell-all book. And so since it wasn't a tell-all book, a lot of people weren't interested in it at first. After a while, toward the end of the book coming together, I started getting more responses from people who were interested.
5. I Made It
This book is a big accomplishment for me. It's been something that I've been working on for a very long time. I wanted to see this vision that I had come to life. I feel very proud to be able to share my personal life and be able to help others with what's going on with them. I can see myself putting out another book. Maybe even next year or the year after that. The topic would be something different.
