The Fascinating Female Book Project

Trainer, Coach and Writer Michelle Alba-Lim has an invitation on Facebook that I'd like to repost here.  For those who are interested, please e-mail Michelle at          
Or find her on Facebook:



Are you a fascinating female, or know someone who is? If so, you must read on.

In August 2010 I started compiling articles for a book entitled "Fascinating Females" which I had initially envisioned for publication before year end. It's now several months "overdue" and I need your help to get it done.

In retrospect I realize that I may have approached the project from the wrong end. I had singled out females whom I considered fascinating and invited them to send in articles. While some did respond quickly (with great articles), many others - for various reasons - have not yet sent anything in. One politely declined (and she is such an inspiring and fascinating female that I decided not to ask her why).

Instead of waiting for my "chosen ones" to eventually submit their articles, I'm now inviting anyone who has a fascinating story or article to share, to send it to

You may write it as a mini-biography, a snapshot, or a vignette. You can write about your adventures (or misadventures) in Mensa, Rotary, Toastmasters, the Red Cross, WOVI, ASTD, SHRM, IAC, the military, or any organization/s (or movements) you belong to. You can write about your life as a wife, a mom, a sister, a girlfriend, a daughter, a student, etc., or you can write about a single defining moment in your life, and so on.

Note that fascination, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, so what you may consider as a humdrum, boring life may be fascinating for others.

You will retain full copyright to whatever gets published, and can have your articles published again anywhere.

Articles can be anywhere from 1-4 pages of letter size (8-1/2 x 11), double-spaced, font 12, Times New Roman.

You may write in first person or third person (whichever you prefer). You may opt to use a pseudonym if you wish.


Please email me at if you have any questions or suggestions.

Looking forward to seeing some fascinating articles in my inbox very soon!

This sounds wonderful! I wish I could say I'll definitely write something up - hate the word 'try'.

Do, or do not. There is no 'try'.

Sigh. So true.

Glynis said...

Sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing, Len.

Theresa Milstein said...

Do you know the word count should be or is it open-ended? A range? Help!
