Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
More than two million brides will navigate their way down the aisle this year with plenty of help from bridal books, magazines and websites. But what about after they pledge their undying love to each other? What happens when they have to learn to live together as husband and wife, and like it? "Help! I'm a Newlywed … What Do I Do Now? Wife-Saving Advice Every New Bride Must Know to Survive the First Year of Marriage" (30 Miles Media, Inc.) offers new wives straight-forward, practical advice to help them thrive in the first year of marriage and beyond. Scheduled for release on September 20, 2008 -- Wife Appreciation Day -- this fun and informative book will help guide and comfort newlyweds through the challenges of their new world.
"I remember getting a case of the 'newlywed jitters' after my wedding, and being blindsided by fear, insecurity and a host of other overwhelming emotions," says Lorraine Sanabria Robertson, the book's author and creator of http://www.AskWifey.com. After getting married and frustrated about the lack of resources targeting newlyweds and the specific challenges they face, Robertson began writing "Help! I'm a Newlywed … What Do I Do Now?" to fill this huge void. "It's amazing how much is out there to help you plan a fabulous wedding, but what about planning for a fabulous first year?" questions Robertson, who says the newlywed year can be quite challenging. "So many brides are scared or embarrassed to admit that they are overwhelmed. It's important for them to know they can be happy and in-love, yet still feel nervous and not know what to do."
"Help! I'm a Newlywed … What Do I Do Now?" provides more than 225 Do's and Don'ts about a wide-range of topics including sex, staying a hot chick, living together, establishing the role of "wife," dealing with in-laws and friends, maintaining individuality, keeping a career on track, managing money, wrapping-up after the wedding details, going through wedding withdrawal, and dealing with a sports fanatic husband. It also features a special chapter just for the new groom and words of wisdom from real wives.
Happily married for nine years, Robertson's life-changing wedding was featured on The Learning Channel's popular television show "A Wedding Story." She is a nationally published freelance writer, author and successful public relations consultant. In January 2008 she launched http://www.AskWifey.com where she hosts her weekly Ask Wifey Q&A column and her popular blog, Wifey's House (http://www.wifeyshouse.blogspot.com). Robertson's work has appeared in various publications including Teen People, Upscale and Heart & Soul magazines; and in the anthology "Souls Of My Sisters: Black Women Break Their Silence, Tell Their Stories, and Heal Their " (Kensington Books).
