Description

No one denies the anguish of divorce at midlife, but the online dating that follows is the greatest shock of all.

MATCHLESS is the memoir of a 50-something woman seeking a meaningful relationship in the Cyber Age when the click of a mouse is the difference between deletion and forever. Thrown into the dating world for the first time since Watergate and Patty Hearst, the author takes us on her journey, introducing us to the world of Internet dating including people like ImYourPleazer, ReeferMagic and more. Unprepared for the dating game of today when a new, younger "option" is only a click away, Anne shares the ups and downs of flirtations and first dates, rejection and renewal. MATCHLESS will appeal to women navigating this alien world and their married sisters who may be wondering what it is like to be single once again. With a friend the journey is more palatable; MATCHLESS is like a friend who helps you laugh at the absurdity of it all-while also sharing the very real agony of personal reinvention.

With 30% of America's baby boomers now single, it's surprising that this story has not been told.

T'was the Night Before Christmas... 

 (With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore, may he forgive my doggerel...)

...and all through the shop,
all we minions were working,
   until ready to drop.

The ebooks were flying,
the covers were spare,
The edits were crazy,
   with "one more thing I must share!"

We waited for Santa,
'Cuz we love old Saint Nick,
But Hitch made us work,
   Waving 'round an old stick!

So slave we all did,
And made all your books,
So that Hitch would say now,
   that we're off the hook.

Come today we're off,
to rest up our fingers,
Our hats we will doff,
   No books they do linger.

But we'll all be back,
Don't give it a thought,
for like all wage slaves,
   we're easily bought.

We'll be back on the fifth,
all eager and fresh,
All ready for you,
   after a well-deserved rest.

So Hitch wants to say,
very strongly and loud,
THANKS ALL YOU GUYS,
  you're the best type of crowd.

Indy and Len and Hitch and the gang,
will be back on the 5th,
to do books with a BANG!

In the meantime don't worry,
if you're in a hurry,
'cuz some poor guy got stuck
   sitting here like a duck.

Your emails we'll receive,
so no need to grieve.
We'll be a bit slow,
but we're raring to go.

Your books will be worked on,
your edits still made,
we're just resting a bit,
   before we all fade.

So please excuse the delays;
It won't be for days;
we'll jump on your queries,
   for your wondrous new series.

We waited for Santa,
'Cuz we love old St. Nick,
And sure 'nuff he came,
   It wasn't a trick.

And as he rode off,
into the night,
I could swear I heard Hitch yell,
   "That Edit's Not Right!"

~~~~~~~~~~

We'll be back on the morning of January 5th; we'll be here parttime between now and then, thanks.
