Do You Have a Love Story to Share?
I'm on a Mission, a Mission to Share Your Love Story with the World.

If you're reading this, there's a pretty good chance that you know at least a bit of my story - how I fell in love with a beautiful young girl when I was a boy, lost her, then found her 27 years later. Now, we are busy (and often, not-so-busy, which is nice) enjoying our Happily Ever After.
One of the best things about writing and sharing our story is that literally hundreds and hundreds of people have emailed me, or contacted me through my Facebook page
to share their own stories with me. Stories of triumph and joy, stories of loss and despair. I often hear from people who still hold their first love strongly in their heart, but for one reason or another, can't be with them. I feel that strong sense of longing that was the primary part of my psychological makeup for so many years. If anyone can relate to what they are feeling, it's me.
Now that I have told my love story with Dawn from two perspectives in Feels Like the First Time
and Both Sides Now
, I'd like to turn my attention to your love stories. I am planning on writing a series of non-fiction books that will focus on true love stories, starting in 2015. But, in order to tell those stories, I have to hear from you. Are you interested in having your own love story written and included in one of these books? Beyond a little bit of literary immortality, I can't offer payment for your story, but I will promise to tell it in an honest and straight-forward way. I'll even change your names if there are people who might be hurt by what is in the story.
When I first sat down to write Feels Like the First Time, I started by researching what other books were already written about non-fiction love stories. You know what I found? There aren't many. I'd like to change that. I'd like to take true love stories and share them with the world. I don't care if your story has a happy ending, or a melancholy one - I want to hear it. I don't care if your love story takes place in America, or Europe, or anywhere around the world - I want to hear it. I don't care if your love story is sweet, or sexy, straight or gay - I want to hear it.
If you choose to be a part of one these books, you won't need to do the writing yourself, I will do that for you. You'll have to read some of my books to decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing. What I will need from you is to be available for several interviews: first through email and later through Skype or via telephone. I'll also want you to look over your story when I'm done and tell me if I've written in any inaccuracies. I've found that most great love stories don't need embellishment - the have a raw power all their own.
So, would you like to see your love story immortalized in a book? If you would, please contact me and we can start the process. You can drop me an email at 'shawn at shawninmon dot com'
or message me through my FB page.
