About the Author

"Evia" or Eve Sharon Moore is an African American woman who is married to a white American man and writes often about interracial relationships. She is the proud mother of two sons, and holds undergrad and graduate degrees in ethnology and counseling. Aside from writing, she devotes herself to the arts and to her home-based fiber arts and jewelry business. Evia travels internationally each year and has lived abroad. She was interviewed extensively by the Associated Press in 2007 and cited in an article regarding the surge in African American women dating and marrying white men, and her blog that began in 2006, soon morphed into the website: BlackFemaleInterracialMarriage.com. Along with essays, the site contains numerous pictures of black female-non-black male couples from all walks of life-from the rich and famous to the ordinary. " I wanted to shine the light on the interracial marriage and intercultural marriage options for African American women. These are other choices that upwardly mobile African American women, especially, have for love and marriage that are not often reflected in the black or white media. I wanted to urge African American women to take advantage of the many possibilities for love and marriage outside their immediate environment." Evia urges African American women to "feel free to date and marry any suitable, loving and lovable quality man from any background in the global village. "The quality of the man is the critical factor; not skin shade," she stresses, and "men of quality come in all skin shades and from all backgrounds. Lots of these guys would love the chance to develop a loving, committed relationship with a black woman. And let's face it, finding a man of quality in the ocean is much easier than finding him in a backyard puddle." In Book 2 of her essays, plucked from the more than 400 essays she has written, she describes herself as 'unapologetic' in spurring black women towards more fulfilling lives. She is often described as "courageous" by those in her wide readership as she implores African American women to engage in self-love and to promote and protect their own interests 'first and foremost.' Book 2 is the second book in the series, discussing the intersection of black women's empowerment and love and marriage between African American women and men from a variety of races and ethnic groups at the turn of the millennium.

Please prepare your Black daughters for the sometimes treacherous waters of dating! Giving this book as a gift would be a great start. Please do not live in denial and let them "figure it out on their own". We must guide these precious young ladies into quality, loving relationships where they are VALUED!

This book was interesting and frustrating to read. Don't get me wrong: Evia's topics and insights always inspire me to create the best life that I can. I was also inspired by the regular commenters' insights. Evia and her regular readers don't shy away from addressing some really disturbing trends and stereotypes that black women have to face. It also helped me to understand how much clinging to worn out ideas quite literally drains you of energy, vitality, and originality. I find myself getting quite literally bored and tired when any sort of negativity comes my way and I makes sure to stay away from potentially ignorant/toxic people, doesn't matter if there family or acquaintances. This a great book for young black women who want to take control of their own image and define themselves. I guess what made this a frustrating read was the fact a lot of women in my personal life simply refuse to step out of the box and I can see so clearly how it's all going to end. On a brighter note, I've become acquainted a lot of younger black women,like myself, at school, who are not chained to group think, comfortable in there own skin and open dating all men regardless of color, so more black women are definitely getting the message.

So many BW are conditioned to be self-limiting, and this book is a refreshing reminder that we all have "CHOICES"! This has been my favorite book in Mrs.Moore's series. The essays led me to make the choices that led me to living a higher-quality life. My favorite is Chapter 5-Your Life Depends on Your Choices.

This won't be beneficial for all women: in fact, some women may find it redundant or otherwise unnecessary for them. I'd advise anyone to look through Evia's website THOROUGHLY before purchasing the book: if her essays are not enlightening to you, then the book probably won't be, either. BUT, if you find her free information helpful, then this book will be an absolute treat for you.

A previous commenter mentioned that this book is a good gift for young girls. I ABSOLUTELY agree! The information contained in "Choices" is probably some of the most basic lessons girls can learn to survive and thrive in the dating world. It will help girls to feel empowered and inspired. I highly recommend it!

Loved this.Thank you so much for having the courage to tell it like it is.This was one of the first book of this kind and it opened the floodgates for me and I have since read Halima Anderson, and many others in the BWE movement and CW (black women Deserve Better). I have always dated men of all races including my own and have the weird experience of being married for the past 17 years to a mixed race man who looks white!! So we get all the crap from the 'ACTING BLACK" CROWD anyway lol. I'm a middle class, middle aged black British conscious feminist intellectual of the bell hooks school of thought and these books were still a major revelation and liberating force.I have am light skinned but with full on Afro-licious kinky hair & a "video vixen" figure.I have lived in my native Britain and the Caribbean ( where I became much darker) and look 10 years younger than I am- so I've seen it all- been too black,( for Caribbean colonially brainwashed morons) too light ( a coconut), experienced all different sides of the coin and received the attacks from 3 generations of culturally diverse black and white people-So I speak from a position of ridiculously extensive experience. I've shared this blessing with all my black ( and white) girlfriends and will continue to do so until I drop dead!! BUY THIS NOW. BUY IT FOR EVERY WOMAN you know and love. READ IT and refer to it EVERY DAY of your life. You prayed for a miracle and these beloved sisters have delivered it!!!!
