Help Mr. November become a Paridise Hunter

One of the most interesting people I met in the quest for love, chronicled in The Laptop Dancer Diaries, was Mr. November: Ian Usher. Ian has a fascinating story. He received fame (if not fortune) from "selling his life on eBay." Then he spent the next 100 weeks traveling the world in hopes of achieving 100 goals. Along the way, we met, in November, 2008, when I was looking for an adventure a month and a man to fall in love with as I was writing my book.

Ian and I have remained friends and I'm happy to say that he has recently completed his book, A LIFE SOLD. I don't think it's quite ready for sale yet, but will be in a couple of weeks. I can't wait to get my copy!

Ian's next venture may be spending a year as a Paradise Hunter! He's applying for the position of hosting a show. Job responsibilities include traveling the world in search of paradise.

Part of the job application is getting votes for a video you put together. As usual, Ian has done an excellent job with the video and certainly is an experienced paradise hunter!

Hi Yvette,
Thanks once again for your support. Yes, book should be available on Amazon around mid- to late-November, I think.

I voted for Mr. November. I remember him clearly. An intriguing chapter. So many adventures...yet, still, a layer of some loneliness it seemed. Am I off track there?

Hey Rebecca,
As usual, your intuition is spot on. Though I haven't read Ian's new book yet, I believe it delves into that mix of adventure and loneliness that can occur when you are seeing great things, but missing a special partner to see them with.

I experienced that myself as I was writing my book, exploring the meaning of adventure and love.
