If Kindle books are available in your country, you have NO excuses not to get it. You don’t have to have a Kindle as you can download the Kindle AP to almost any device. CLICK HERE http://amzn.to/2u5Q2EA TO GET IT, OR HERE http://amzn.to/2sO3sB4 if you live in the UK. (Please note that not all countries have Amazon Kindles books. You can still buy the paperback edition on Amazon or request it from your local book store!! (And soon you will be able to buy a digital copy on my own Quirky Books E Book Store).
So I hear you say, why would I want an asexual book, when I love sex and am not asexual, right??? Because 1% of the population, IS ASEXUAL and this means that 1 in 100 people you come across in your life, IS ASEXUAL. This means you could end up talking to an asexual, being friends with an asexual, dating an asexual, wanting a relationship with an asexual, and falling in love with an asexual!! And how is that type of relationship dynamic going to work???? If you do not understand what this misunderstood and often unheard of sexual orientation, is about??? Sure, you can stay ignorant, uneducated and shrug it off as you do not need to know, but I am sure if you fall in love with an asexual and want to get married, live with, and have kids with an asexual, then you will NEED to understand your partner. After all, it is a partnership that requires understanding of both of your sexual orientations.
Heterosexuality, is often talked about and not kept in darkness, but even so, you still have needs and those needs are individual to you!! An asexual has their own asexual needs, within their sometimes more complex orientation and the sooner you grasp the foundations of what your love one requires in that relationship, the sooner you can find that deep emotional connection and bond, that will stand the test of time, long after your bits are not doing what you wished them to anymore.

QUIRKY BOOKS PUBLISHES ASEXUAL PERSPECTIVES IN PRINT UNBOXING VIDEO – IN A LAND FAR FAR AWAY #APAM Check out the video and pay attention to the very beginning Star Wars style intro. It requires very careful reading, but you will love it. It is all about having a Quirky dream and achieving it!! Quirky Books first book in print is out now, Asexual Perspectives is out now in print!!! Check it out in Kindle and print format here http://amzn.to/2sK5a5G
Despite the fact I have been off work with a nasty virus, and on Monday Chestnut had to have an unexpected minor eye op that she had to have a quick dose of anaesthetic for; I got a wonderful expected surprise on Wed, 28th of June, when my first ever Quirky Books print version of my Asexual Perspectives book proofs arrived. Yes, after over 6 Years, Quirky Books is an official imprint, so not only is it the first time my writing has ever been in print format, it is the first of my actual own book publishing company printed books. This deserves 3 cheers, hip, hip, hooray, hip, hip, hooray, hip, hip, hooray! I figure if you can’t cheer yourself on in life, why should anyone else bother to!
To hold my book in my hands felt wonderful to say the least. And one huge benefit of being a publishing imprint and having a book in print, is I have to send a copy of my book to the British Library by law and up to 5 other libraries if they request it! This means there will always be a record of the invaluable information contained within this book for generations to come and it becomes part of our English heritage, and with my huge mission of getting Asexuality recognised as a sexual orientation in its own right throughout the globe so that no asexual has to live in fear of ridicule ever again, this means so very much. I know this information will live on, long after I have gone, and this is the most incredibly powerful feeling that no other profession can give me; the power of the written word to change lives, and make a lasting impression on those lives already in existence!
Remember, if you are rejected by traditional publishers, or you just want to take ultimate control of your writing and publishing, just create your own destiny and get into self-publishing, it’s not for the faint-hearted but the life long rewards of changing lives through the written word, will be worth it. Xx
To celebrate the print version of my Asexual Perspectives book going live to buy around the globe next month, I have founded Asexual Perspectives Awareness Month from 1st-31st July 2017, a whole month of celebrating our Asexuality all across the spectrum and our individuality within it, which is a core central message of the book! If you want to get involved like http://www.facebook.com/acexualise one of my pages for Asexuals on Facebook. Also subscribe to http://www.youtube.com/c/asexualisemyasexuallife to see a brand new video every day, related to a topic in the book, for 31 consecutive days. There will be Facebook challenges, Facebook Lives, quotes from the book. It’s going to be ace. Use #APAM in your Tweets and when sharing across social media, and don’t forget to check out Asexual Perspectives on Amazon.
Until next time, write soon and stay quirky
Sandra xx Aka Quirky Books and Asexualise (3 names in 1, can’t be bad, like 3 for the price of 1 – priceless! Ha! I am in a happy, funny mood, despite not being in tip top physical health).
I recently went to the Business Showcase South West in Bristol #BSSW. There were lots of seminars throughout the day, including one that featured Jordan Daykin, who won investment from Deborah Meaden in the hit Entrepreneur TV Show Dragon’s Den! He was only 18 when he won that investment in 2014 – making him only 21 years now and his business GripIt – is now worth over £14,000,000. It was awesome to hear his inspirational story!!
I did a live 5 minute pitch to 2 people, to be a TedX Speaker about Asexuality at the next TedX Bristol event in November this year. I already applied with a 1 minute video pitch, 100 word pitch and a bio! And my application has not yet made it or been declined. If you don’t know what TedX is, it is a local Ted talk – or rather talk(s) on stage, on a particular subject that a person has experience or knowledge about – which often makes them seen as an expert. The last Bristol TedX in 2015, had all 1800 seats sold out and about 2000 attended. It is the biggest TedX talk in the UK and possibly in Europe. All speakers are voluntary and the money goes back into a bigger and better show for next time. If I got it, it would be truly life changing for both me and asexuals around the globe – especially since some Ted talks are viewed on YouTube in their thousands and millions. Keep your fingers, toes, and everything crossed, that I make the final cut!! Pitching to be a speaker continues until July – so I have to wait and see! I know at least I tried and will have no regrets as I have done all I can to get through, and although I think I will be good at speaking on stage, in front of that many people is something I will need to be brave to do – but I am a warrior, so it will all be good!! And let’s face it, I was born to be on stage really!! Just have to push myself to do it and go for it!!
If you want to try something in life and have been thinking about it for a while – I say, go for it!! Life is too short!! Keep writing and stay quirky – always xx
Oh and if you have not got a copy of my Asexual Perspectives book yet, you should!! It is great to know about all sexualities because you never know who you will meet that may be the love of your life and if they are Asexual, it is really important to understand them!!
So you may have read about my Asexual Perspectives book being published, but just what is Asexuality and what does it mean to be asexual? Watch this video to find out more and read my book description below. Asexual Perspectives is currently available to read for free on Amazon for ‘Kindle Unlimited’ readers, so what have you got to lose by finding out more?
In broad terms Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction, but what does this actually mean for those who identify with this sexual orientation? And what do asexuals really think of love, life and sex?
Whilst all asexuals have one thing in common – the lack of sexual attraction towards a specific person, we are all different in our likes, needs, wants and dislikes. This can make fitting into the asexual spectrum and finding a suitable relationship difficult.
Right now, there are a number of myths about asexuality and stereotypes – even within the asexual community, about what asexuals do and do not like, should and should not do, and these need to be addressed and broken through!
If you identify as asexual do you –
Struggle to have a voice in this sexualized world?
Have no one to relate to?
Find it difficult to find others like you?
Feel like everyone is speaking a foreign language where sex is concerned?
Or are you unsure of your identity and sometimes get confused and you want to know what asexuals really think of Love, Life and Sex, and what experiences they have had or are having; and how they manage their relationships? If so, then look no further than this book. In this book you will discover asexuals who feel just like you.
In this book I will reveal my own asexual perspective and personal story as well as perspectives from 46 asexuals around the globe; dispelling myths and breaking stereotypes; sharing their own personal journey to help you in yours and with a surprising over-riding message!
In this book you will:
•Learn the asexual perspectives of Aromantics; Heteroromantics; Homoromantics; Panromantics; Grey Aces; Demi-sexual; Biromantic; Agender; Transgender; Polyamorous and many more.
•Uncover Asexuals’ deepest fears, concerns and worries about being asexual.
•Find out possible reasons why, in general, society does not accept asexuality as a sexual orientation in its own right and what we can do about this to change the world!
•Discover what asexuals really believe are the differences between sexual attraction, sexual desire and arousal.
•Find out what asexuals really think of nudity; porn; masturbation; BDSM and kinks.
•Discover what it feels like to have sex as an asexual and how to cope with the sexualized world that we live in.
•Find out what asexuals think about living together, about marriage and about having kids.
•Discover what an ideal asexual relationship would look like and whether asexuals believe a relationship with a sexual would be fair or not.
•Uncover the positives about being asexual.
•Find out what advice asexuals would give to a younger version of themselves regarding asexuality and what advice they would give to others who are just discovering they may be asexual.
I feel truly blessed that all interviewees have been willing to open up and share their most intimate moments, thoughts, feelings and emotions with you. What you are about to read is unique, amazing, interesting, sometimes candidly humorous, fascinating and insightful. This is their story, now it’s their time to tell it.

It’s been a very busy 10 days. There was chestnut’s birthday on 22nd of April – as pictured in this new Asexualise.com website launch Pic – I thought it made for an interesting pic as did the balloons in this video – it was my birthday on the 24th – I tried to post some pics from my phone, but they haven’t even saved in my drafts by the look of it, so I will have to go through that process again. I had a blast – which I will tell you about with the pics in a new post.
So I launched my new Asexualise.com site which I had been shouting about on this ‘Asexualise My Asexual Life’ channel that this video is taken from. It is a website with products, resources and services, for asexuals, and also features a blog – my first ever blog about asexuality! It also features my ‘Asexualise’ brand of T Shirts – yes, I design my own T Shirts on Amazon.com and Redbubble (although I paid a designer to do the artwork on some of them). Here is one of my Top Sellers that has a 5 Star Review …..
I am going to be creating T Shirts for Writer’s in the future and will post about them on here at a later date so watch this space. I also have two other brand of T Shirts too – Including Quirky T Shirt – www.quirkytshirt.com I have some site changes in the future so it’s all very exciting stuff.
I have been to Devon Business Expo this week and watched webinars, videos, and been reading for training for my businesses. Please remember how much I love you and that I don’t forget you, just sorry I have been slow to blog on here and the fact I am not stopping by much. As I write this, it is before I go to work in my day job on a Bank Holiday Monday, and I have to jump in the shower in a minute!
My Twitter book is doing really well – if you are a beginner to Twitter or have started and have no clue what you are doing, please check it out, it is still only $1.40 or 99p and has a 5 Star review, you won’t be disappointed.
I am working hard interviewing Asexuals from around the globe for my new Asexual Perspectives, Love Life and Sex, ACElebration of Diversity book – It is a huge deal to many asexuals, including me. It is going to show just how awesome we are, and hopefully help those with a sexual orientation to understand us better – as I have had sex in the past and have highly sexual friends, I think I can help to bridge the understanding gap, between both. This book should help with this, and will be an interesting read for asexuals and asexuals too, I have an interesting www.facebook.com/acexualise page for more info about what is going on with all of the asexual stuff I do . Love is love and I love you – remember that! xx And stay quirky!
