As always a great article. I have never been married but, since so many couples rush into marriage without really giving it a lot of thought, maybe couples should say, “I will try my best to honor and love you…..”

Thank you for the great tips. I especially love tip number two because that person can end up being a serial killer. LOL

Stella, you make some vital points. As an author and reader, I too don't like long blurs. I thought it was because of my age, but realize that when you are searching through thousand of books to read, you want the blur to get to the point. Naming the character is also on point. In some of my blurs, I do name the main character, but I am going back to my other blurs and make some changes. Thank you for sharing these tips. And I can identify with being a professional writer who keeps making mistakes but never quits. :)

Oh no, dear Vivienne, not having patience to read blurbs has nothing to do with age. Lol! I'm constantly revising my blurbs. I find it pushes sales. I missed your visits. Thank you for stopping by.

Great tips. I would watch couples in my building and it is so rare to see them holding hands when walking in public. I have lived in my building for 52 years and have only seen one couple holding hands when they were out in public. They are no longer with us, but I must say, they were really a passionate couple.

Yes, lots of people driving in their cars look at us and smile as we hold hands on our walk around. Those who walk past my husband and I have this glint in their eye.
We wonder why people stare at us as if we are doing something strange. Love is always in the air, we just have to fan the #flames.
Thank you dear Vivienne for sharing the comment about the #passionate  neighbour. How sweet.

Story
Tagline
Writer, Blogger, Author
Introduction

Born in 1946, Vivienne Diane Neal is a writer, blogger, and an author. She is a storyteller with a wicked sense of humor, has been writing articles for over twenty years and started penning fictional short stories in 2007. Vivienne gets her story ideas from observing people, places and things and watching true TV court cases and talk shows.

 

Her first book, Making Dollar$ And Cent$ Out Of Online Dating, is a true-life and humorous account as to why and how she got into the dating business and the problems she has encountered in the past while trying to keep afloat in the ever-changing world of the Internet dating business.


In 2009, she authored her second book, Shades of Deception, a collection of ten fictional short stories centering on diverse men and women, who in their speedy search for love, romance and bliss, become the targets and victims of deceit, betrayal, fraud, revenge, and scandal.


Her third book, Malicious Acts is another anthology of five short stories that centers on people who will stop at nothing to get what they want. If it means disguising themselves as benevolent individuals and destroying lives along the way, they are up for the thrill. They will use romance, sex, lust, greed, manipulation, and deceit as preludes to suck unsuspecting men and women out of their life’s savings.

 

The Man with the White Handkerchief is a digital short story, (under 600 words) which partook in the Lulu Short Story Contest in 2011. The narrative is about a woman approached by a stranger, asking for directions to a specific street, but she has no recollection as to what took place after that encounter.

 

Wicked Intent, her fourth book, is a fictional short story about a successful businessperson who is planning to marry his self-centered fiancée, but a beautiful stranger sidetracks him. She will bring lust, desire, and eroticism into his life but will ultimately destroy his relationship with the one person who has always stood by him.

 

Retribution Unleashed picks up where Wicked Intent left off. The story examines the lengths a mother will go through to seek reprisal against her son and his wife, whom she holds responsible for stealing her nest egg.

 

Café Mocha is an erotic romance short story about a woman who decides to change her way of thinking when it comes to meeting men.

 

Vivienne has been featured on SingleEdition, Black Love is Beautiful, A Book Inside, Susan Whitfield’s Blog, Cluculzwriter, Have Stress Relief Now, 1st Author Interviews, IMRR Bookclub Newsletter Fall 2011, Writers Get Together, Mary M. Forbes Blog, Romance Review Ramble, AuthorMePro, The Writer’s Voice, Polygirl Publishing and Writers Get Together.

Now, semi-retired, she continues to write short stores and articles on love, romance, relationships, and other topics of interest.
