*I received this book as a gift from the author*

Define Your Voice is a book that reads like a workbook and is designed to help authors to discover their unique voice. By voice the author means your unique story. The experiences that sets you apart as an individual and therefore makes your work reverberate unlike anyone else’s. The author shares with us some of her personal experiences and takes us through prompts designed to help the reader find his or her voice. I cannot say the information presented was new for me personally, but I can imagine it can be of great help to someone who needs a step by step guide on discovering and then embracing their real selves.

Rating this book was a challenge for me. I was excited to read this considering the author’s many accomplishments and there are parts I really liked. However, the book is also in need of more editorial and formatting attention. I also did not get much from the target audience perspective. Already familiar with the points mentioned, I was personally looking for something new to learn and from a business perspective, something deeper. However, the inspiring messages of hope and motivation were on point. The book was also an easy and short read which is always a plus. My decided rating is therefore based on these strong points. Some of my favorite quotes from the book:

“Motivational quotes are birthed out of the victories, trials and failures in a person’s life. They become popular because they are relevant and transparent.”- Altovise Pelzer

And my most favorite:

“Are you bitter or better? There is a huge difference and it will show up in how you talk about your pivotal moment. Are you speaking from a heart of forgiveness or hatred? Don’t think you have to wear a mask or pretend to be anyone other than you. I need you to be authentic. For me, being authentic means that you are able to share the pain and the purpose in your pivotal moment. People need both! There will be those who follow you even if you lean more to one side than the other. It’s better to stay grounded by sharing the good, the bad and the ugly then to have people believing that there is only one side to a pivotal moment.” – Altovise

Entertainment Factor: 3/5
Authenticity: 3/5
Thought Provoking: 4/5
Overall Rating: 3 / 5 stars
