That New Book Smell

That New Book Smell

*This* close to sending my new book off to the editors for review and feedback. I’m around 250 pages for this first draft. My first book was 99 pages, so writing this one has been a marathon in comparison. I’m a little behind schedule. Okay, a lot behind schedule! I’ve had to bounce around a lot this year, spending no more than 3 months in one country. I’ve spent chunks of time in the US, Ecuador and Canada. It’s taken me more time than I would have liked but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. And birds. And blue sky.

Writing is 5% inspiration and 95% perspiration, that’s for sure!

What’s the new book about? It’s a book to help couples who are planning to move in together, are living together or married – to be happier and more successful. It explores multiple topics like the legal differences between living together and being married, mixed faith unions, having kids, merging families and pets, sex, division of labour, money, family issues, personal growth and happiness, emotional distance, conflict, etc. I haven’t come across another relationship book that explores so many topics in one go.

I draw real world examples from my own relationship, couples, family therapists, a documentary filmmaker, other authors and experts. If all goes as planned, it should be available for reading this summer. You can sign up for advance notice when my new book goes on sale and download a sample chapter here –
