For those of you that have been following me for these past 9 years, and for those of you that have been following me for a shorter period of time, AND for those of you that have never followed me, never will, etc … you might be aware that after my husband passed away I was quite lonely and joined a variety of “On-line” dating sites.

In the past I have written about some of the experiences – and I have met some men that were fun to be with.  Since I am still single, and still looking, it is obvious that I never met “Mr. Right”.  But, I have met MANY “Mr. Wrong’s.”

About 4 years ago I began compiling the on-line conversations that I had with these men, and put it into a book entitled, Liar, Liar.  And now, the book is published!!!!

For those of you expecting a literary genius of a book – it is not that. For those of you – like me – that get irked with misspellings, poor grammar, incomplete sentences,  this book is fraught full of all those things that make an English teacher cringe.  Why?  Let me explain.

I copied, verbatim, the conversations that I had with these men.

I made no corrections.  In a way, it is difficult to understand, because all I did was “cut and paste” what they said, and what I said.  And I did this intentionally to show others just what is out there.

Many of these men were following a “loose script.”  Many of these men were scammers, probably in Nigeria, Russia, or some other place.  I suspect that many of them were using “translations” to write to me.  So please don’t tell me that the English is terrible.  I KNOW that.

Please don’t tell me it is a piece of garbage.  I KNOW that too! But the sad thing is that a lot of the people looking for true companionship from On-Line sites are unaware of just how gullible they can be because they are lonely.

I once read that “loneliness is one of the saddest words in the English language.”  When lonely we tend to overlook a lot in seeking someone to banish that loneliness.  When someone says “you are beautiful”, or “your make my heart beat faster”, you believe them because you want to believe them.

And when they say that their daughter needs a cancer treatment, or a heart valve, and they are only short a few dollars, you might just be vulnerable enough to send them those few extra dollars.  Did I? No, because fortunately I never had anything extra to send.  But I know of women – and men – that have made that costly mistake.

And lest you think that all of the people on these sites are illegitimate – let me quickly tell you that I know of 5 couples that met on-line, and have wonderful relationships.  If we could only keep the scammers off of the sites, romance might blossom continually.

If you want to purchase the book it will be available from the publisher at bookorders@rosedogbooks.com or can be ordered at the Book Order Department at 1-800-788-7654.  It is $16 plus shipping.  I am told that it will be available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, but as yet I do not have an affirmation of  that information.

You do not have to buy it; you do not have to read it; you do not have to like it; you do not have to love it.  I am merely celebrating the completion of the last 4 years of my life and wanted you to be able to share it with me.

I hope you are in a great relationship and do not have to resort to “On-Line” dating to find the fulfillment that I found myself lacking!  Hugs!

See, the issue with this is that you give the impression that this is a dating perspective from a younger person. You need to change the cover picture.
People reading are thinking there may be some steamy happy outcomes.
Anyways, nice work.

Age has nothing to do with it. The scammers are all ages attacking women – and men – of all ages. They are both young and old

It would be fun if you did a reading of selected exchanges. Get some male friends to read the boy parts. Winston’s hosts comedy nights …..

Due to a major screw-up from my new publisher, I am offering my latest book, “Liar, Liar – a story of my on-line dating” and my last cookbook – “Jamming With Judi” for $20 for both books, plus shipping. If you are interested let me know. If you are not interested, you do not need to let me know. I will know without your telling me! Happy Holidays.
