Sistahs Sizzlin’ Read: The Womon by Seconya Bagby


Give a brief description of your novel, The Womon.
The Womon is an urban love story with a twist. The main character, Yvonne, is a single mother who has just found the perfect balance in co-parenting with her ex. In an attempt to move on with her life after a failed marriage she solicits the advice of her best friend, Corrine. In doing so, she bites off more than she can chew when she finds herself drawn not only to Corrine, but also to Dorian, a gentleman she meets while vacationing in St. Thomas. The Womon chronicles the highs, lows, ins and outs of Yvonne’s quest to find the love she truly desires. Will it be the man or “the womon?”

Why should readers pick up your book?
I was never of the mindset that this book was for everyone. What I can say though, is that beyond the initial storyline, it offers something that everyone can relate to on some level whether it’s the bond shared between friends, the simplicities or difficulties in relationships, the constant battle between head and heart or just the crazy complexities of a woman in her own mind. With certainty, The Womon has more to offer than meets the eye.

What are you working on next?
I am currently in the process of writing the sequel to The Womon which I am hoping to release the latter part of this year. With the first book, Yvonne spent a great deal of time in her own head. This time around she is forced to deal with her heart. Whether it’s aching, breaking, jovial or joyous, you will gain a greater understanding of Yvonne as a mother, lover and friend. So keep an eye out for Two Times a Lady!

What are your summer plans?
Beyond finishing up book two, I plan on doing a bit of traveling this summer. The Essence Festival in New Orleans to start the month of July followed by a trip to Jamaica by months end.
