A new book declares that being single, free, and unencumbered can be a really good life. The Spinsterlicious Life: 20 Life Lessons for Living Happily Single and Childfree (March 2012) by Eleanore Wells is part entertaining-memoir, part self-help, all real. It is available now at Amazon.com in paperback for $14.95 and Kindle for $8.00 http://amzn.to/GZChFR. Visit www.TheSpinsterliciousLife.com for further information.
Timed to trending demographics:
- In 2011, a study by the Pew Institute found that barely half of U.S. adults are married – just 51%, down from 72% in 1960. http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2011/12/14/barely-half-of-u-s-adults-are-married-a-record-low/
- The Guardian reports the number of people living alone globally is “skyrocketing” – reaching 27% in the U.S. In 2011. http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/mar/30/the-rise-of-solo-living
- USA Today reported that by 2008, nearly one in five U.S. women end their childbearing years without having a baby, compared with one in 10 just 30 years ago. http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2010-06-25-1Achildless25_ST_N.htm
Generated from Wells’ popular BlogHer Network blog TheSpinsterliciousLife.com, the book celebrates the joys and realities of her life as a happily single woman in a “married-is-normal” world.
The Spinsterlicious Life is a spirited, page-turning take on single life. It is a clever, must-read for anybody who finds herself (or himself) proscribed by society for not being coupled-off. For those who are single, by choice or circumstance, it is an intimate and laugh-out-loud handbook.
Wells says “If you are a man past a certain age and unattached, you are a ‘confirmed bachelor.’ But If you are a woman of a certain age and unmarried, AND without kids, then you are labeled an old maid, a spinster…or just weird.”
The Spinsterlicious Life unapologetically offers up the perks of answering to no one. Funny, insightful and wise, Wells chronicles her single-by-choice adventures and turns them into life lessons worth sharing.
“Spinster is an uninspiring word and I know there are many, many other women out there just like me. So I invented Spinsterlicious – I’m Spinsterlicious and loving it!”
Born and raised in Washington, DC, Wells now lives, loves and writes in New York City. She draws from her rich experiences in the Big Apple to frame the conversations on her blog and for the 20 lessons in the book.
