Congrats! Your books will go in the mail next week. I hope you enjoy them! (Please email me at sylviad.lucas AT gmail DOT com with your mailing address, “contest winner” in the subject line.)

To the rest of you: I wish I could give everyone who commented a free paperback, but I just can’t. I hope you’ll consider visiting Amazon to pick one up, anyway (or Nook! It’s also on Nook). Here are the links:

Thank you for such thoughtful and honest comments. Whether you read No Children, No Guilt or something else, I hope you get a copy of something that does what you said in the comments you want it to do.

Have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve!

    First of all, Happy New Year! Sylvia, your book NCNG (abbreviated for brevity) sounds excellent, and I hope to order it as soon as I can.

    I think a great place to get a wider readership for your book might be your local high schools, if that wouldn’t pose too much of a problem. My reasoning behind that idea is that if more teen girls knew the advantages and pleasures of being CF, especially at this time in their lives, they might wisely decide to avoid the trap of teen pregnancy and motherhood by not having sex with immature boyfriends. Of course, this is just an idea I had, which may or may not work for you. But I felt I had to throw it out there anyway. :)

    You’re very welcome, and if the idea doesn’t work for you, that’s okay too. :)

    Given that teen pregnancy has reached alarming numbers, I can’t help but wonder why so many teen girls would risk giving up a fairly carefree life at this point without kids, where they can complete their studies, go to school dances and all the other things normal high school students do simply to please a boyfriend who demands sex.

    IMO one of the biggest causes for poverty among women is teen pregnancy/motherhood, which is why I would love to see it reduced as much as humanly possible. I have often thought that having teen girls hear directly from adult women CFers how much of a winning advantage NOT having kids is could inspire some or many of them to say a very loud NO to guys who keep pestering them for sex. After all, it isn’t the guys who will have to bear the burden if some of the girls get pregnant, is it.
