humbly asking for your help

How would you describe your relationship with your in-laws? I’m dying to know! I don’t want this blog to sound like a “please buy the books I write” plug, but I’m drawing up a proposal for book #3 and I can’t do it without you! So instead of asking you to buy a book, I will offer you a free one in exchange for your help.

Here’s the scoop. Lots of you filled out surveys for Blushing Bride and Is That All He Thinks About? You did awesome, and I used so much of what you said in the books. The next one is about learning to love your in-laws. I’m hoping to pick your brains again–as well as the brains of some of my new xanga girlfriends.

Next week there will be a survey on www.taviano.com that you can fill out online. Anyone who completes it will get a free book when it comes out. If you don’t want to wait that long, I might be able to send you Blushing instead or the sex book when it comes out in Dec. There will be a place for you to designate whether or not you’d like your name changed if I use your quotes in the book. In Blushing, I changed a couple names or just said, “A friend of mine says…” I tried to be sensitive when the comments were really personal, but I know it’s fun to see your name in a book. 🙂 In the sex one, I pretty much changed all the names. In fact, the surveys were sent to me anonymously. You have that option this time, too, but how will I know that you need a free book?

So, just giving you a heads-up for next week. Tell all your married (or soon-to-be-married) girlfriends! I don’t have to know them personally.

Thanks, friends! I’ll let you know when the survey is up and ready!

    hey…i’ve been thinking more about it & I completely remember hearing gabe’s name at camp a lot (mostly i remember hearing “taviano”) and i think…could be wrong…but i think that mabye my friend’s boyfriend was in his cabin! …whoever’s cabin he was in…he gave him a run for his money b/c he was a very emotional/volitle person… 😉

    Your marriage proposal sounds great…your girls are adorable, they sound like they have great personalities, Manda thinks that you and your husband are great…so Landon would have good in-laws…should we start the proceedings? 😀

    Sounds like fun! I don’t have in-laws though, but I do see my sister’s in-laws a lot… And I know how she reacts to them! It’s easy – cause they’re so like Mum and Dad.

    Thanks for the offer too! I would love that, will email you today 🙂
