Recently I told you about trying and failing to write a self help book, and how I put the principals into two romance novels. The first of which is Ten Day Turnaround. Get a better look at it here:
Now we’re about to bring you the second of the two novels. This one stirred up some controversy and ruffled a few feathers the first time I published it. Yes we updated it, but I didn’t change the story. Why not? Here’s why.
I first wrote this story in the early years of this century to honor two couple of my acquaintance who have deliberately flown in the face of conventional thinking. Couple number one is a man and woman who have been married many years, have children, several grandchildren, and perhaps even great grandchildren by now. He is admittedly homosexual. But to avoid public censure, he married the girl from next door. They dote on each other, love each other deeply, and he swears he has no regrets.
The second couple is two divorcees who were friends, one lesbian, and the other not. They moved in together, became lovers, and are still together many years later. Again, they love each other deeply.
Both couples asked for anonymity and I have respected that, opting instead to weave what they taught me into the story. Please enjoy and know my only agenda in writing this was to honor these brave and heroic people.
Well, that’s it for this time. Keep an eye out for Deliberate Love to appear for sale sometime next week. (if the gods are willing)
