Clearly, they just weren't trying hard enough. Because here's a prime example of why my book DOES have a market.
I don't know how many of you read the Washington Post, but Carolyn Hax is the advice columnist there. This is a link to an actual letter that she received.
Here's an excerpt:
Before I met my boyfriend, I had a long list of things I wanted in a husband. Now I'm in love with a sweet guy who loves me very much, but who doesn't have some of the important things on my "list." If I leave him, I could regret it forever, but if I don't, I could miss out on someone who does complete my list. What should I do?
To Be or Not to Be!
I invite you to click on the link to read Carolyn's response, but the more I talk to folks about The List, the more universal the theme becomes.
I found my own list last night, tucked into my Bible. While it was nowhere near the complexity of my character, Candace's list, (plus, I'd paired it down a bit) I think that every woman has a list.
So today and tomorrow, I'd love to hear what was on your list. Or your wife's list. Or your girlfriend's list. Tell me your story.
