Ms. Creant: The Party!

Come celebrate the release of my book, Ms. Creant: The Wrong Doers!

Sunday November 6 at 6:00 P.M. Eastern on facebook

https://www.facebook.com/events/571459723039613/

I am throwing a party and I want to invite you.

As with all things I do, this event will not be conventional.

It will be more like a party with a group of my closest social media friends that anyone can attend. . . and attend you should. You may never again have the opportunity to get up close and personal with so many amazing writers in one place at the same time with the ability to move from one to another as you wish. You will be afforded the opportunity to converse with them about the many varied themes which our books have in common–sex, love and relationships would be at the top of an extensive list. It should make for interesting conversation.

THIS IS NOT AN AUTHOR TAKEOVER! Many authors don’t like that pressure to engage and entertain for 30 to 60 minutes. This is far more casual. There will be a virtual room full of authors who may be mingling with other authors and guests can just walk up and listen or weigh in.

Each INVITED author will post ONCE and they can do this in advance if they wish. This singular post will give everyone a great deal of information about the author and their book(s). Additionally, in the COMMENTS section, you will see a number of conversation starters prepared by the author to get the fun started. I have posted my own as a sample for my author friends to work from.

Sarcasm and laughter are encouraged!

Welcome to the Ms. Creant: The Wrong Doers! official release party. We are here for a good time–not a long time. Don’t make me call security.

Thanks to Amanda Lacy Vaughn and Xtina Marie for keeping me from looking like a total moron on my first social media event–I hope.

I suspect I will not be able to keep up with all the shenanigans but I will get to everyone eventually.

Who am I?

Blurb:

Ms. Creant: The Wrong Doers!
This book was created for everyone, from young adults to seniors. It was written from a male’s point of view, speaking to men who are endlessly struggling to understand the opposite sex. For women, this is a fascinating journey inside the male psyche. The book gives a young reader a glimpse of the future, with a recommended timeline for key life events. Mature readers, who have already experienced much of what is discussed in the book, should come away with a new-found understanding, and perhaps even closure. Ms. Creant is a controversial, entertaining, yet informative look at everything that influences human behaviour including: relationships, life, health, biology, philosophy, sociology, theology, politics, genetics—even physics. E. A. Barker shares twenty-four “inappropriate” stories of life with women. The author based these stories of women behaving badly on his real life experiences, spanning four decades of his search for an ideal partner. The lessons taken away from the book will serve to help readers make better choices, become more aware, grow, and change—at any stage of life.

Publication date: September 26, 2016.

Publisher: Tellwell

Favorite review excerpt:

“If you can read this with an open mind, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did and gain some very useful knowledge. I have a 22 year old son, and I’ll be getting him a copy to read. I hope he heeds the advice given, because I believe he’ll be a better man because of it. 5 stars – Debra Breault”

This one gave me hope but not because of the rating. This is a mother who read a book before giving it to her son. This is EXACTLY what I had hoped for.

Next work: Aspiring poet. (lol)

SNEAK PREVIEW OF THE BOOK! Ms. Creant: The Wrong Doers.

 

 


 


June 1, 2016 UPDATE:

The book is in, what I hope will be, its final stages before publication.

It is bigger, and I hope better, after another three months of refinement.

Ms. Creant will now (possibly) be deemed appropriate for the YA group, as well as being useful to educators.

I expect a September release.

Overview

I set out to write the definitive guide to women.

Am I an expert on the subject? Statistics would seem to indicate that I have THIRTY TIMES the experience of the average North American male.

Ms. Creant, the book, began as a way to vent my frustration after befriending a severely damaged thirty-nine year old woman, whose duplicitous nature drove me nuts. It was because of her that I read The Wisdom of Menopause looking for answers. What I did not realize until after I had finished reading the book, was that I understood women better than most understood themselves.

As my personality type comes up as ENTP “The Visionary”, I am one of those people who can step outside the box to see the big picture. Having just extricated myself from a stagnant eight year relationship, I was just beginning to adjust when this Ms. Creant came along. Betrayal and resentment are great motivators, if you can hang onto those feelings long enough to complete a book.

Thinking that I might be able to save my two young nephews from making the same mistakes I have made, I set out to write my relationship memoirs. However as I did, I found myself trying to analyse each of those failed relationships, and began to see patterns emerging. The book was evolving into a humorous narrative non-fiction tell-all with hard science that seems to support its thesis. Ms. Creant became a “book of life” or a “book of everything” somewhere along the way, but it always comes back to its central point. Ms. Creant is the book I wish someone had given me as a young man. It is a game changer. It can help society. It may help civilization.

Men the world over are constantly blindsided by the actions of women. Many men are permanently scarred by these experiences. The average guy in North America has less than ten sexual partners, and perhaps three live-with relationships before marriage. Someone had to write a book to help them understand women better, so that they can find closure, avoid negative patterns of behavior, and choose more wisely starting at an early age.

I found Christiane Northrup’s book to be a forced read- a text-book and anything but a page turner. I did not want that for my book.

Women who read the early edition of Ms. Creant made comments like:

“I did not like reading about these women, but I want my son to know that they are out there.”

“There is so much more to the facts of life than just how babies are made. My husband needs to read this.”

“I did not like some of what was being said, but it was not wrong. I could see many of these traits in women I know.”

“I loved the memoirs! I could not put them down.” 

Ms. Creant was designed to be for everyone.

It is factual, informative, controversial, helpful, unique and fun. It features stories with sex, violence, and betrayal. It has broad appeal.

The design criteria:

1) It should assist parents in preparing their sons to go out into the world on their own.

2) It should be an easy and fun read. Few people choose to read a text-book.

3) The stories should be hard to put down, and the analysis of each must be brief.

4) The underlying themes should continue throughout each chapter.

5) It should appeal to men of ALL AGES and curious women who are not easily offended- particularly those with sons coming of age.

6) All post-pubescent males should be able to read it or just skim it, and be better informed for their effort.

Although I believe it to be PG13, some parents may believe the language and content to be destructive to a young mind. To them I say: Go on the internet to see what your kids are looking at. Concerned parents who wish to develop a moderated dialog with a young son about girls, sex, drugs, alcohol, acceptable behavior, and the importance of education, can read passages of the book with their son, and then discuss the subject matter.

I wanted the book to be something a parent could buy for themselves, and then pass along to their young adult son who does not enjoy reading. The 16 pt. sub-headings and the index will allow this youngster to skim to what interests him most. Hopefully, he accidentally discovers that reading can be fun, especially when the topic is girls.

7) There must be positive messages.

Stay in school, abstinence, practice safe sex, avoid drugs and alcohol, work on improving yourself, avoid date rape situations, there is a difference between making love and having sex, choose wisely and settle carefully, are just some of the messages contained in the book.

8) There should not be any religious bias or slant but learning about different philosophies is encouraged.

9) The science is a necessary component, but it must be kept to a minimum and presented in an easily understandood form.

10) No matter what the level of the reader; Ms. Creant must be thought provoking!
