Milkshake is a funny novel by Boston Globe columnist Joanna Weiss about women’s mothering choices, breasts, breastfeeding and babies. Be sure to stop by and read my review and enter my Milkshake Book giveaway.
This clever story tackles some heavy mothering topics in a humorous style that left me curious about a second book. I had the opportunity to ask author Joanna Weiss about that, her inspiration for the book, and more in the following interview.
Interview with Joanna Weiss
1. What was your inspiration for this story?
It was hard! I’m used to writing 700 words on a quick deadline, so the idea of taking years to finish a project was daunting. But it was incredibly fun to start hearing the characters’ voices in my head. I’d advise people to be persistent, and to get good, honest edits along the way. Every reader, throughout the process, will make your book better.
