Welcome to the tour of Taming the Tida by Eslynne Smith. The full tour schedule can be seen at http://www.elitebookpromotions.com/book-tours/.
In 2014 the nation was in crisis. Partisan politics were the rule of the day, stifling and sabotaging meaningful change in Washington. Americans were desperate for someone—anyone—to offer them hope, to show them there was indeed a light at the end of the tunnel.
That hope came in the form of Sharmin Smith, a contestant on the breakthrough reality show Who Wants to Be President? Designed to increase voter participation and heal a deeply divided nation, Who Wants to Be President? pitted contestants against each other in speeches on America’s most pressing issues, from abortion and health care to immigration and the economy.
Smith, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, caught the country’s attention, delivering her unusual, groundbreaking opinions with two service dogs by her side. She gave a nation hope, and in return, Americans gave her their trust.
The first book of the Change the World trilogy, Taming the Tida gives hope to those tired of contemporary political gridlock and looks to a brighter tomorrow.
Eslynne was diagnosed with PTSD in the summer of 2008 from traumatic childhood events. After years of multiple therapy techniques she accepted the advice of a trusted therapist and stepped away from her professional life to focus on her personal life. It was during this time that she embraced writing for pleasure and decided to undertake the Great American Novel.
Sharmin rolls her eyes and drops a little accent as she responds “Thank you, I clean up alright. It helps when you have a team of pros that knows what they’re doing. I don’t even recognize myself. It’s so itchy. I can’t wait to get it off.”
“It’s a good look on you, you should do this more often.” He smiles and tries to be charming.
Sharmin smirks at him and nods her head “I’ll keep that in mind.”
He continues “One question please. If you are elected as President, do you want to be called Madam or Mrs.?”
Sharmin looks him in the eyes and said “Ms. please, I’m not marrying it. It’s a title I won’t just have to earn it, I’ll have to prove I deserve it. Not as a Madam running a whore house, but as the President running our White House.” then she walks away, leaving him to stare after her as she walks out on stage.
