From the author: I originally wrote this book for people who wanted to have better sex. But then it started winning awards and being used in college sex-ed courses. So I tried to make the book all things to all people, and it started to grow, and grow, and grow. But with this new edition, I ve taken the Guide To Getting It On back to its roots. It is 576 pages, which is half the page count of the previous edition, and it is almost $10 cheaper, at $19.95. This edition is about you, assuming you are looking for a book that is down to earth, fun to read, and is your best ally when it comes to having really good sex."

This is a warm-hearted, uplifting story…It is a fun and entertaining story, and very enjoyable and more-ish. I kept turning the pages and was disappointed when it ended as I was loving the various threads of the story.’ Rachel’s Random Reads ‘I loved how real the stories felt, how much I was pulled into caring about each of the characters in the novel. This was a fantastic read full of friendship, love, laughs, a few tears and a whole host of hope for the future. This is the first of Sophie's books I have read but it definitely won't be the last, she's a great voice in women's fiction and one I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who loves a heartwarming story.

WHY A REVELATION? In a Revelation of Conflict for the Soul Becoming, there is a question that is being asked of all who might pick up this book and press through from cover to cover. The premise of this writing is to ask you one simple question and to ask it in many different applications as our lives are all moving through distinct seasons. Why does anyone need a revelation? It is for the purpose of gaining a knowing that comes not from this realm but from the realm where this domain was created. If that peaks your interest then I can't wait for you to read and glean and ask for more of why? WHY NOW? Why now is not for me to answer as much as it is for the Lord of Heaven to reveal to you, why not now? We wake up, we go to sleep and we wake up, maybe? The time is now! It is time to answer the question that has not been asked in a way that has brought you the confirmation that you need. You need to know, and you need to be known! The time is now and it is now for this reason; tomorrow is a hope and just because it is, does not mean that you are guaranteed to have it, at least in this kingdom. WHY ME? Why you is for one simple reason. Until the revelation becomes in you, you will never know why and for what purpose you were created. You were created to become the Bride of Christ. This was always the Father's desire, that you would have intimacy with Him. THE QUESTION IS THIS: ARE YOU WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE OR ARE YOU SOMETHING ELSE?

A winning, irreverent debut novel about a family wrestling with its future and its past—for readers of J. Courtney Sullivan, Meg Wolitzer, Mona Simpson, and Jhumpa Lahiri NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE BOSTON GLOBE, KIRKUS REVIEWS, BUSTLE, AND EMILY GOULD, THE MILLIONS With depth, heart, and agility, debut novelist Mira Jacob takes us on a deftly plotted journey that ranges from 1970s India to suburban 1980s New Mexico to Seattle during the dot.com boom. The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing is an epic, irreverent testimony to the bonds of love, the pull of hope, and the power of making peace with life’s uncertainties. Celebrated brain surgeon Thomas Eapen has been sitting on his porch, talking to dead relatives. At least that is the story his wife, Kamala, prone to exaggeration, tells their daughter, Amina, a photographer living in Seattle. Reluctantly Amina returns home and finds a situation that is far more complicated than her mother let on, with roots in a trip the family, including Amina’s rebellious brother Akhil, took to India twenty years earlier. Confronted by Thomas’s unwillingness to explain himself, strange looks from the hospital staff, and a series of puzzling items buried in her mother’s garden, Amina soon realizes that the only way she can help her father is by coming to terms with her family’s painful past. In doing so, she must reckon with the ghosts that haunt all of the Eapens. Praise for The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing “With wit and a rich understanding of human foibles, Jacob unspools a story that will touch your heart.”—People “Optimistic, unpretentious and refreshingly witty.”—Associated Press “By turns hilarious and tender and always attuned to shifts of emotion . . . [Jacob’s] characters shimmer with life.”—Entertainment Weekly “A rich, engrossing debut told with lightness and care.”—The Kansas City Star “[A] sprawling, poignant, often humorous novel . . . Told with humor and sympathy for its characters, the book serves as a bittersweet lesson in the binding power of family, even when we seek to break out from it.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “Moving forward and back in time, Jacob balances comedy and romance with indelible sorrow. . . . When her plot springs surprises, she lets them happen just as they do in life: blindsidingly right in the middle of things.”—The Boston Globe

Prostitution is the age-old art of trading sex for money. It is considered fashionable by some and degrading by others. Everyone has an opinion on the subject. I am no exception, and in fact have more interest in the subject than most. You see, for the past four years I have worked as a male prostitute, or "escort" as those of us in the business call it. Starting in 1995 by hustling in Internet chat rooms, I taught myself the tricks of the trade with little help from others. Since then, I have entertained men who have paid me hundreds of thousands of dollars for my time, experience, and body. I have been flown to dozens of cities around the world ranging from Buffalo to Rome. I have bought a house, invested heavily in my retirement, and have even paid taxes on my income in the process. In short, I have taken prostitution as most people see it and transformed it into a viable career. To be honest, it wasn't easy. I had to teach myself about pricing, advertising, interacting with clients, and what to do when things go wrong. Only briefly was I lucky enough to have a mentor in the business. I distinctly remember wishing someone would write a how-to book on the subject. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that someone had written one. John Preston's 1994 book, Hustling: A Gentleman's Guide to the Fine Art of Homosexual Prostitution, was exactly what I had been searching for. I bought it immediately and took it home and read the entire book in one sitting. I was ecstatic that I had finally verified that I was taking the right steps towards my goal of being a successful escort. XI Once my initial excitement wore off, I remember wanting to read more about becoming a male escort. Preston's book was written too early to address how escorts can use the Internet. I also wished the book provided more assistance for those with drive and ambition, rather than providing tips on how to mooch beer and cigarettes from your clients. I believed, and still feel today, that such tips only degrade the profession as a whole. In time my friends began urging me to write my own how-to book about the subject. It was an appealing idea to me; I certainly like to write, and God knows I sometimes act like I know everything. After pondering the topic for a year or so, the idea of the book began to grow on me. Eventually the urge to write grew so large that I had to take time off work, sit in front of my computer, and write it out of my system. Just as my first book, Suburban Hustler, was the result of wanting to satisfy people's curiosity about my career, The Male Escort's Handbook is a product of people approaching me who want to enter the business. So many would-be escorts have asked me for advice during the past four years that it would be impossible to teach them all. So when I wrote this book, I endeavored to provide as many angles on the industry as possible. Whether a potential escort sees himself as a hot daddy, a muscle boy, or a barely legal twink, I wanted this book to contain everything he needs to know to begin in the profession. Experienced escorts should find the book useful as well. Throughout the writing process, I strove to balance the fundamentals with advanced lessons. Additionally, underlying each chapter is a consistent theme of escorting as a professional endeavor for those who want to make serious money. Apply your ambition to the information inside this book, and the money will come pouring in. My own long-term goal is to make millions from my career in the sex industry then retire in style. Whether your goal is earn a little spending money, pay for college, buy a xii house, or retire early, I hope you find The Male Escort's Handbook to be an invaluable resource. Oh, I almost forgot. Before you begin reading this book, I have a standing rule you need to know. If my advice helps someone earn an extra thousand dollars, he owes me and my lover dinner. I expect to hear from you when the time comes. And mind you, I've developed a taste for lobster. Aaron Lawrence
