Dear Librarians,

I once worried that my friends and family would think I was weak, pathetic, or mentally unbalanced if they knew that I took my mind off my miserable marriage by planning my husband's funeral.

Then I read 12 marital improvement books, perused the Internet, and interviewed a few of my happily married friends.

Four months later, my husband and I renewed our vows.

I wrote PROJECT: HAPPILY EVER AFTER to tell that story. I wrote it for everyone who is—right now—in that scary place I was before my project: feeling alone, scared, unbalanced, and hopeless.

Chances are you have many patrons in this very place, as surveys show that as many as three quarters of married folks are unhappy.

People say that this book is a "good read" "delightfully funny" and "worthy of a thriller." You can be the judge of that.

If you'd like to enter to win one of 5 free copies of PROJECT: HAPPILY EVER AFTER, please email me at and tell me about why you feel alone in your marriage or relationship.

And if you'd like to enter to win a host of prizes—ranging from a Kindle to free stays at B&Bs to vouchers for marriage counseling—visit
