A note from Victoria

Hi …

You may already know that I’m in KC, but since I wasn’t sure who knew and who didn’t, I wanted to send out this last-minute email about my Cornerstone Foundation/Rainy Day Books presentation on Monday, June 25, 7:30 p.m., at Unity Temple on the Plaza, 47th & Jefferson, Kansas City, MO. I’ll be giving a fun, funny, and informative talk on the ideas in my brand new book, Fat, Broke & Lonely No More: Your Personal Solution to Overeating, Overspending, and Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places (which I would be ever so grateful that you might want to read, even if you can’t come on Monday night). Even for people who don’t have any problems with food, money or relationships, there’s some good information here about filling the inner emptiness and going for the life of your dreams.

Tickets are $15 if you call ahead (816-561-4466, extension 109) and $20 at the door. (If cost is an issue for you or someone you know who might otherwise want to come, just let Christine Garvey — she’s the extension 109 person — know; discounted and free tickets are available, and no one will be turned away.)

If you have a minute to forward this to interested friends, I’d really appreciate it. I would love having a nice crowd in my home town, and of course it will be a great evening whether there are a lot of bodies present or a few. There’s also a fun Fat, Broke & Lonely No More video link below, and underneath that I’ve pasted the press release with some information about the book. (There is some buzz that it might be turned into a reality show — I’ll let you know more Monday night….)

All good things to you,
Victoria

From Victoria Moran,
Author of the Perennial Bestseller Creating a Charmed Life Comes:

FAT, BROKE & LONELY NO MORE
Your Personal Solution to Overeating, Overspending, and
Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places

Moran made waves when she gave us the fine points for Creating a Charmed Life. Her new book is less sequel than prequel: You’re never going to get a charmed life, Moran contends, until you stop struggling with fat, broke & lonely—either as facts in your life or fears that won’t leave you alone. Fat, Broke & Lonely No More: Your Personal Solution to Overeating, Overspending, and Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places offers an up-tempo and on-target 5-part plan for breaking up with inner emptiness (that’s what caused the trouble in the first place), kicking fat, broke & lonely to the curb, and hooking up with the life of your dreams.

Each of the fifty, bite-sized essays–i.e.,What You’re Looking for Is Not in the Refrigerator,Sex and the Gritty, and Fit, Flush, Partnered and Still Empty Are Just Fat, Broke & Lonely in Drag–guides readers out of the grip of fat, broke & lonely with the spiritual and practical steps she herself took to part company with this triple-threat. Moran, now a popular speaker, media personality, and spiritual-life coach, was once sixty pounds heavier (her dad was a diet doctor and her mother worked in fitness salons). She also spent ten years as a single mom whose financial plan implied that if the rent was paid, all was well. I know what it’s like to wrestle with the size of your body and size of your bank account, and to believe that Mr. Right is no more real than Mr. Clean, says Moran. But I also know how to change these things, for the better and for keeps.

Unique in its genre, FAT, BROKE & LONELY NO MORE recognizes that although charting a new course with food, money, and relationships demands personal responsibility (“Life belongs to those who floss! “), guilt has to go. As long as corporations produce most of our food and subdivisions are built without sidewalks, fat will be the default setting for a lot of bodies. In a plastic-makes-perfect marketplace, staying financially solvent will take work. In a society short on the extended families and close communities we’ve depended on since before we walked upright, loneliness will be here. Those are the facts of the culture. FAT, BROKE & LONELY NO MORE aims to change the facts of readers’ lives.
