What's it all about, Alfie?

Yes, you are invited to the book party: see below. But maybe you'd like to know what this book is about?

Here you go, the publisher's book description:

Fresh, quirky and delightful, (Re)Making Love: A Sex After Sixty Story, is brutally honest while giving hope that passion doesn’t need to end after a certain age. Tabor takes the reader from Washington, DC to Missouri to Australia and eventually to Paris, a visit that offers a stunning surprise—one that changed the author’s life.

Tabor had been married for twenty-one years when her husband announced to her, “I need to live alone.” Already grief stricken by the deaths of her mother, sister and then father, the news threw Tabor into a tailspin of impetuous acts, the good, the bad and the foolish.

In this deeply personal memoir, Tabor wholeheartedly shares her journey, all after age sixty, proving it’s never too late to find love—and oneself.

Readers will find hope in a story that gives new meaning to romantic comedy. (Photos included.)

And, the book is now available in paperback, for the iPad, the Sony Reader or as a pdf here: (RE)Making Love)

The Kindle version will be ready soon. Start-up problems with that version, though the photos look great: the publisher had to fix the indents for the text. I will let you know when it's ready for your Kindle.
