Book Release

Dating book killed the dating life

Well, this is interesting. I never quite considered this fallout, but it seems men are totally freaked out by a woman having written a book about dating. Who knew.

As though they are all interesting enough to be written about. Oy, the ego! So that’s what happens when you put yourself out there. Men flee and treat you like a pariah. I guess this is the case for any non-fiction writer who writes about life around them, their experiences, what they see.

Oh well. It’ll be the strong man who has enough confidence to know I’m a writer and it doesn’t mean he will be written about. There are the few who think it’s cool and even offer me stories for my next book.

I like that guy.

He’s super cool and confident and knows it’s not about him.

And there is no next book. I don’t think. Though I am tossing around the idea of doing one co-authored with a male friend of mine on how men and women relate to each other in relationships/date/romance/sex. We’ll see. How much more undateable do I want to make myself lol

Anyway, if you want to date me know I wrote this book, but it doesn’t mean I’m taking notes on every guy I date. It might make a Twitter post as a brief observation, but for the most part 98% of the men I have met and dated are entirely forgettable. Like massively so lol.

Book Release, Feature

Hmm…Online Dating Overall

Reviews of my book are coming in and one reader said it didn’t make her want to date and didn’t give a positive look at dating and online dating today. Not sure she’s my core audience, because if she was and in the dating scene she’d know that it is loaded with negativity and that it IS hard to find the positive in online dating. I didn’t create the situation, lady. I am only reporting back on what I personally saw and experienced after TWO YEARS of research. Do with that what you want.

I’m not here to sugarcoat what I experienced. I’m just sharing. This need to make everything feel good and positive is getting out of hand in society. Holy crap, let’s be serious–dating sucks and it’s hard and men are pigs and all they want is sex and no commitment, and women have made it so easy for men to just get sex and no commitment so wanting commitment from a man if you want it is almost near impossible to get, because WHY would he when he KNOWS there are tons of women out there who will fuck him and want nothing else from him. Thanks, fellow women, for completely obliterating the entire concept of monogamy and commitment.

So yeah, dating sucks. So sorry it wasn’t all sunshines and rainbows in the book for you. I wasn’t writing a fairy tale. I edit fairy tales.

Anyway, I’d give the ebook away for free if it helps women. So if you want a free copy because you’re about to start dating again and are scared and want to get ONE WOMAN’s perspective like having a gab session over coffee, comment here or contact me using the form and I’ll get you a copy somehow…which isn’t easy because Amazon doesn’t allow Canadians to gift copies.

But I’ll hook you up, because all I wanted to do was help women not make a gajillion dollars. I wished a book like this was available when I went back out there and it didn’t exist so I created one.

If you want lies and consistent feel-good passages to soothe you, don’t bother with my book. But if you want some funny truths, dive on in and it’ll at least get you started. It’s not the fucking gospel, but a damn good heads-up.

Peace, love, all that good feeling stuff.

Book Release, Dating Dos and Don'ts

Life’s little hiccups….

When in life have things gone as planned?

I don’t know about you, but not very often for me. Not my relationships (or marriage), expected birthing dates, careers, and as it turns out, even book release dates.

Through the “magic” of technology and “glitches,” my book will now be available for ordering next week rather than January 30. My publicist, when she gets my email in a  few hours, will be less than thrilled with this setback, change of plans…call it what you will.

Release dates are important because in publishing we work up to that date and try to garner attention and interest so that ON release date people flood Amazon and buy your book. Because release day sales are what impact sales rankings. It’s all a game. Meh. I don’t play games, not in dating or any other aspect of life. Even book releases.

It all can be stressful. If you let it.

I’m not worried. I’m not stressed. It is what it is and what will happen will happen.

I wrote this book for single women so they could navigate online dating with a heads-up before getting ambushed by the manmines like I did.

So the book is out in a  few days, 3-5 days to be exact lol. I hope it helps you out in your journey back into dating. As always, send questions if you have them! I’ll answer honestly right here on this blog.
