Substitute Wives, By Yvonne Eve Walus

Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Anybody who is not going to be offended by a literary novel about sex workers.

Q: What is the book about?
A: Joy is a twenty-three year old sex worker who has over a million dollars of inherited money in her bank account. She donates all her earnings to charity, goes to church and is counting the days she has left as a sex worker before she can return home to reconcile with her family. When a married client declares his love for her, Joy tries to let him down gently, and falls for his clichés in the process. Joy’s friend and co-worker, Caro, refuses to take her stalker seriously, even though she knows that her past is bound to catch up with her and endanger the safe haven Caro has created for her daughter.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: Because I went undercover to research the Auckland sex-worker scene… seriously! I went to the Co-op pretending to be a newbie who considered starting in the trade. Ok, so I was too embarrassed to admit I was a writer.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: It’s written with compassion. The novel’s world is not the world of drugs or pimps or backstreet quickies. The girls charge top dollar, they are in control of their lives and of the choices they’ve made and they realise that the glitter that surrounds them is only skin-deep.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, the book delivers emotional punch by telling the story of everyday ever-important relationships: between a father and a daughter, between a daughter and a mother, between husbands and wives and substitute wives.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: Substitute Wives is currently a semi finalist in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Contest. You can review the first few chapters here:
