About Emunah La-paz
Author Emunah La-Paz's ability to engage readers at an early age can best be described in the Publishers Weekly Article.
Emunah La-Paz has been building a loyal readership since the early 1990s, when she first published the romantic comedy novella Chocolate Burnout. The 90-page book became a word-of-mouth sensation, and the novella has beenturned into a seven-part series for Hubbard Small Press Publications.
The first novel in that series, Chocolate Burnout: Chocolate 4 Life, publishes on June 7. The book centers on Chantel Reed, a successful, single African American woman who has given up on romance to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a master chocolatier. Chantel’s best friend, Astrid, owns Sweet
Indulgence, one of the most popular chocolate shops in downtown Seattle. The story follows Chantel as she deals with life’s challenges and bounces between an obsession with chocolate and her desire to find the perfect romance.
Each of the seven books in the series will follow a different protagonist. The series will tackle and address a variety of social issues, including racism and inter-racial relationships, which gives the author a lot of material to work with. “Throughout the seven-part series, there will be different perspectives, and the protagonists will develop and change their views as they grow older,” says La-Paz. “The main character, Chantel Reed, her eccentric group of friends, and her peculiar relationships give readers something to look forward to as the series progresses.”
La-Paz has an active following on social media, counting more than 100,000 fans across her Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok channels. She shared early concepts for Chocolate Burnout across these platforms and stirred up conversations and discussions about how the stories should play out. “These snippets and discussions piqued the interest of my followers, and they started to become very engaged in the world of Chocolate Burnout,” La-Paz says.
