Ever felt like you were living in the middle of a great story? That happened to me when I started dating Richard, a man who posted a creative ad when he was looking for his third wife on Craigslist. He was different from any man I’d ever dated—mostly because he was forthright and completely honest. He knew what he was looking for, and I appreciated it.
Everybody has a one-of-a-kind statement if they will let their unique voice and experience shine through—warts and all. Here’s the author’s promotion for the book that came out of it:
How does a 62-year-old woman who’s never been married find happiness with a two-time widower seeking his third wife on . . . Craigslist? Does she throw caution to the wind and relinquish her freedom, or should she take a crash course in compromises?
Author B. Lynn Goodwin tells all and more in Never Too Late. How she was attracted to Richard’s clear expectations, his honesty, and his incredible openness. She’d never met anyone like him. Would she recognize love if it knocked on her heart? And could an educated woman be happy moving into a blue-collar world? Whether you’ve been single forever, are trapped in an unhappy marriage, or you’re simply curious, you’ll find secrets to a happy marriage in Never Too Late.
I’d like to talk about how I found, developed, and located a publisher for this story. In this teleseminar listeners will find out how to:
- Recognize their own unique stories
- Tell them well rather than list all the events of a life
- Learn why purpose matters
- See how uniqueness (as opposed to strangeness) brings a story to life
- Figure out how to share your story and find readers it will matter to
Join us on August 17th to learn the story behind the story.
