Fun!

Reading for groups is great fun. Especially when your husby, who is the subject of your book, comes along. 🙃😉

We had such fun last night sharing a part of Never Too Late at Get Lit, which is held quarterly at the Aqus Cafe in Petaluma, CA last night.

My husband suggested I start with his Craigslist ad, so I did. He has the inside track sometimes, and I know when to do as he says and when to have “selective hearing.” 

Richard and Lynn

 

Following his suggestion, I started with the ad in which he compared himself to a 1944 roadster. He’s a funny guy and the audience loved what he said. They also loved my response, and more. Somehow I came in under 5 minutes, despite the laughs after almost every sentence. 

In the interests of total honesty, I’ll also say that someone said he should write and share, and he can’t wait to get started. WTG!

👍❤️❤️❤️✍️

And the moral of this story is that I want to do more presentations. If you’d like me to do a You Tube video for your book club, service group, or dating organization, please let me know. I can talk about getting married late in life, writing a memoir, writing a novel, getting started with a story, acceptance, changing your life, opening your heart, and a lot of other topics. Let me know how I can help you and your group.

Never Too Late Featured at Book Fair

My book was published far from California, where I live. The company, Koehler Books, is in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and my editor, Lynn Moon, pictured below, displayed top books, promoted the company, and answered the questions of those who’d like to publish with Koehler.

What does it matter?

One of the books she brought was mine. It’s the blue one on the far right side of the table. You can read Never Too Late on it.

She sent me that picture and this one:

It’s really hard to miss the book in that one.

She said there was a lot of interest in the book and she sent lots of people to Amazon People can get there as soon as they are sent, if they have a cell phone, and who doesn’t these days? 

So my Amazon numbers were up.

You can keep them that way. Buy a copy for a friend, for a library, for a relative, for a group, or for your book club to look at. I’m happy to talk by phone with any book club, writing group, service organization, singles group, or Meet-Up group. There are face-to-face methods as well, and I’m happy to talk to you about it. 

Please help me share my story with any group you are in. You can tell me how below.

February 16, 2018

Last week I had the honor of hosting B. Lynn Goodwin, author of Never Too Late: From Wannabe to Wife on this blog as a guest blogger.  She wrote about how compromise and acceptance were important components in relationships. Her wisdom comes straight from the heart, as does her writing.

Lynn fills her memoir with humor, honesty and a growing, mature love that is often found in the lives of older adults. She pulls the reader in with her ability to mix just enough laughs with reality. 

The reality that she met her future husband on Craiglist may cause some to gasp in shock. However, I was nonplussed by the fact that this was the vehicle for their paths to cross. Life has taught me that some of the most wonderful relationships come about through some of the most unusual circumstances. But, what I wanted to know about was how did they make it work. (I soon learned, but no spoilers here…you have to read the book!)

Also, as a minister, I loved the spiritual aspect of the story. Lynn’s talks with God were heartfelt and real. She very eloquently showed her readers that leaps of faith are never easy. (Again…no spoilers. You must read the book to see what happens!)

I highly recommend this book to one and all! Never Too Late is one of those books that you can read cover to cover, because it is just too interesting to put down.

Never Too Late is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Time for some Shopping

Never Too Late: From Wannabe to Wife is getting this one which I found today. Thanks for sharing this with the world!

Words from K. Alan

Christmas is over, so I’m off to do some shopping. I’ll never leave my chair, of course—the idea of going out to shop has become almost laughable—but there are a few books waiting for me to buy, a few more almost certain to be discovered, and an Android e-reader that supports enough apps to overcome even Amazon’s false Kindle barrier.

In other words, while I struggle to do any writing, I might as well do some reading.

NeverTooLateMy first stop is to pick up B. Lynn Goodwin’s newly released memoir,Never Too Late. If you’ve read any of Lynn’s articles, coaching or other missives over at Writer Advice, you’ll already know that her style will grip you, but that’s not what appeals to me most about the samples of this book. What appeals to me most is that it’s written by someone who remembers when meeting people had…

Never Too Late

What makes this book launch special?

Truthfully, it’s the characters and their story that make this book special. It’s not about the launch. There’s no big party to celebrate. Our party is an ongoing, everyday life that we live together. Who could ask for anything better than that?

 

Why should you care?

 

Happily ever after is not a fairy tale. But don’t worry. We have plenty of conflict and uncertainty before we arrive at that conclusion. Rejoice with us in a marriage that worked. Pick up a copy today. Never Too Late
