Dawn Michael Success Stories

Being An Author

As any author may know, writing a book is truly a labor of love because so much time goes into the process and most books initially are done without payment.  As a working mother of two, it was especially difficult to find the time to write, research and find a publisher who believed in my work.  My book "My Husband Won't Have Sex With Me" released Feb. 2016 was truly a labor of love, sprinkled in with passion, hard work, and a bit of craziness to write and research at all hours of the day and night to complete the book.  About 5 years ago I posted an article on the platform squidoo called Reasons Why My Husband Wont Have Sex With Me.  After 6 month it went viral reaching #1 in the relationship section and getting 4000 plus views a day, resulting in millions of view a year, along with over 2000 comments.  The article ran for 3 years until squidoo went out of business.  In that time I decided to make the article into a book using the comments as my guide as to what people wanted help with and also using the comments in the book.  I eventually found a publisher from Singapore who I had been writing articles for, for a few years and felt a connection with.  The book was edited out of Hong Kong, typeset in India, published in Singapore and me the writer in the United States, so it truly is an international book.  At the present time I am working on a guide book for couples, which will be released in early 2017.
