Writing Op from Louise Dumont

Dear Christians Who Write:

Louise has spoken to our group several times in the last few years.

Dear Colleagues

My latest WIP is tentatively titled, *If a Tux Could Talk: The Men Who Help Plan Their Weddings, and the Women Who Love Them For It*. For this project I will need newlyweds, and soon-to-be brides and grooms to fill out my questionnaire. I am particularly looking for humorous, poignant and unusual ways in which you or your groom participated in planning the wedding. I would also like to know how and when husbands began taking on the role of spiritual leader of the household -- the more detailed and descriptive the anecdotes the better.

Please pass this invitation on to other applicable persons.

Brief Book Description:
Today's groom is not afraid to order quiche tartlets for his reception or display a daisy boutonniere on his tux. Most couples are footing more than a third of their own wedding bill. Grooms both want and need to participate in the decision-making. If a Tux Could Talk: The Men Who Help Plan Their Weddings, and the Women Who Love Them For It reflects the changing role of a groom. Unlike many other groom guides, this book also addresses a young man's Godly desire to become the spiritual leader of the home, even as he values the talents and strengths of his bride.
