Debut Novel Coming October 1

“The Goddess Effect is a fall-on-the-floor funny, fresh, and modern take on one woman’s journey to hell and back―and by ‘hell and back,’ I mean a three-month stay in Los Angeles.”―Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians and Sex and Vanity

“Fresh, bitingly modern, and laugh-out-loud funny, The Goddess Effect is more than a page-turner―it’s also razor-sharp commentary on the cult of wellness.” ―Andrea Bartz, bestselling author of We Were Never Here

“Sheila Yasmin Marikar’s writing is prismatic…She had me laughing in one breath, cringing in the next, only to turn on a dime and knock the wind out of me with her honesty.” ―Megan Angelo, author of Followers

 

 

“Snappy, voyeuristic, and upsettingly relevant, The Goddess Effect takes us on a heart-pumping romp through the ‘cult’ of contemporary wellness. Either ironically or sincerely, if you’ve ever opted to add CBD to your oat milk latte, moon bathed a crystal, dropped $110 on a pair of yoga pants, cried under the mood lighting of a fauxspirational fitness class, or made any other questionable life decision in pursuit of self-actualization and belonging, you will feel both riveted and attacked by this incisive, page-turning tale.” ―Amanda Montell, author of Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism and Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language
 

 

“Marikar successfully provides larger-than-life caricatures of wellness industry denizens and LA residents at large as well as an outrageous mystery waiting to be exposed.” ―Kirkus Reviews
