About the author

Maiana Rose is an emerging Artist/ Author based in Los Angeles, CA. Originally from the East Coast, Maiana grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She moved to SoCal to attend Pitzer College, graduating in 2014 with a BA in interdisciplinary media studies, fine arts, and anthropology.

Maiana creates images both digital, and Acrylic artworks which provide commentary on the prevailing culture in Los Angeles, with its fixation on materialism, social media, and superficiality. Using lots of hot pink, these pop-art illustrations are meant to feel like putting on a pair of Rose colored glasses while looking at the reality. Her first book, "Oh, The Pics That You'll Post!" Features much of her LA-inspired drawings, and cultural references.

The overall motif of her work is to provide a light, humorous commentary on modern-day culture and hopes to tap into the minds of screen-addicted millennials and Gen Z’ers, inspiring individuals to break from their daily scrolls, to consider the humor in the importance that is placed on a platform like Instagram.

Synopsis

Finding the "one can" be a challenge for anyone. And as a single, straight she/her female looking for love and commitment, dating in this modern day can be tough for a myriad of reasons. Not to mention...the biological clocks! Women who want children are no stranger to the pressure to settle down.

And it seems, women looking for love and commitment are somewhat disadvantaged when it comes to dating in the modern-day, where marriage and monogamy are not everyones cup of tea (nor do they need to be). That being said, having standards, knowing one's self worth, and not dating for validation are all important to keep in mind when navigating through a world of dating apps, mind games, F***Boys and red flags.

Maiana does not claim to be a dating expert, and her quest to find he right connection has led her down a road wrought with many experiences. She believes when life gives you "lemons"...make lemonade. And Oh, the Dude's You'll date is her "lemonade", so to speak. As with her first book "Oh, The Pics That You'll Post," which addresses not living life for instagram, and confronts issues around self esteem, comparison, and insecurities that social media propagates. "Oh, The Dudes That You'll Date," boldly points out and calls attention to unique human behaviors of our time. This time created for a slightly more mature audience and humorously commenting on the evergreen trope of the struggle to find the one.

Sales arguments

  • While the topic of dating is evergreen, today’s dating environment is unlike ever before and Maiana Rose blends her experiences and those of her friends in a way that any woman looking for love is sure to appreciate.
  • Using her experience as a producer, Maiana will cross promote using other forms of media like tiktok, videos, and a podcast. Her ultimate goal is to converge her experience as a producer and to maximize the full IP.
  • Maiana creatively navigated the marketing and promotion of her first book in the challenging LA market. In addition to throwing 3 successful book signings and garnering organic publicity she found ways to create unique brand partnerships.. She has notable individuals eager to support in the promotion and she’ll lean into the connections she made with her first book. From the bookstores/ buyers end of things, to marketing, publicity and events.
  • Like the classic “Oh, the Places You’ll Go”, known as a top gift book for graduations, “Oh, the Dude’s That You’ll Date” is perfect for gifting too. There are many special sales avenues such as bachelorette-events, milestone bdays, subscription boxes, etc. Perfect for individuals or groups who are still in the process of finding the one, or even those who have graduated past dating, to laugh at old times!

Similar titles

  • "20 Guys You Date in You're 20's" – Also a comedic take on a series of guys you might encounter in your 20s. Similar in that its intent is to poke fun at typecasts, and with the presumption that it doesn't work out.
  • "Why Men Love Bitches" – While this book falls into a more "self-help" category, ultimate message of the book aligns with Maiana's quick pace of moving on if it's not a match and to also knowing one's self worth. It shares the same target demographic of women who are struggling to find the one, and keep him.
  • "Oh, the Pics That You'll Post!" –  Maiana's first book and also a Dr Seuss Parody. Features the unique and original illustrations and storyline in the same style and tone, this time she tackles the topic of dating instead of social media.

Audience

Straight, single, she/her pronoun females between 21-35/40, who are dating or have ever been on dating apps.

Advance praise

Maiana received the following are from "Oh, the Pics That You'll Post!". Endorsements and advance praise will also be collected for "Oh, the Dude's That You'll Date!"

Part satire, part cautionary-tale, "Oh, the Pics That You’ll Post!" is the smart, funny picture book I would love to be able to buy my pre-tween and all her friends—before they get their first phones.
— Nicola Kraus, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nanny Diaries

The book has a wonderful, cosmopolitan vibe, would do well in LA, NYC, or Paris!
—Wendi Schuller, Author of Global Guide to Divorce

It’s hilarious and too damn true!
— Emmanuelle Chirici, Actress and Influencer

Maiana captures, a certain and very common Los Angeles prototype with humor and honesty. A quick, delightful, and entertaining must-read for anyone who is trying to “make it” in LA--or anyone who uses Instagram--or anyone who needs a dose of fun. I think that anyone can, much to their dismay, identify with the characters in "Oh, the Pics That You’ll Post!"
— Alexandra Malmed, writer for Vogue, Manrepeller, etc.
