– Duana C. Welch, Ph.D. 
Relationship science publisher LoveScience Media announces launch of Love Factually for Single Parents [& Those Dating Them], by Duana C. Welch, Ph.D.

EUGENE, OREGON – January 7, 2019 – LoveScience Media has announced its launch of Love Factually for Single Parents [& Those Dating Them]. The book is sold at Amazon.com, iTunes, Audible, and booksellers nationwide, and is available in paperback, audiobook, and e-book formats. A free chapter, plus the free workbook to accompany the book, is available now at http://www.lovefactually.co

Love Factually for Single Parents is the first science-based book for men and women who want to find and keep the right love partner not only for them, but their families.

Says Love Factually’s author, Duana C. Welch, Ph.D., “A third of American children are being raised in non-nuclear families, yet until now, no book has existed to help their parents happily repartner with someone who is good for everyone in the family. Love Factually for Single Parents not only fills this void, it uses science as the basis for the step-by-step, easy-to-use guidance throughout. This is the book I needed and didn’t have. Finally, readers — male, female, straight, gay — have an accurate action plan to use at any stage of dating, maximizing your chances of finding lifelong love while keeping your kids in mind. Readers will be able to get ready for love, seek out the kinds of people they need, and succeed at communicating with their chosen partner as they go through this book. It worked for me!”

Welch, whose work has been carried at Time Magazine, Psychology Today, eHarmony, and others, spent four years as a single mother. The book comes nearly eleven years into her very happy marriage to a man she met using the science-based techniques in the book. But, Welch adds, “The book is not only for women. About a third of my first book’s readers are men, as are over half of my clients. Science is very clear that men want and need love; they just tend to shy away from opinion. It’s also not just for single parents, but for anyone who has ever considered dating a single parent. Love Factually for Single Parents brings the evidence to bear in a way that I hope will speak to everyone.” 

The experts in the relationship science field agree. Dr. David M. Buss , evolutionary psychologist and author of The Evolution of Desire, endorsed this book, saying, “Terrific, scientifically sound advice; every reader will finish wiser.” Dr. Terri Orbuch, originator of the Early Years of Marriage project and author of two science-based relationship books including Finding Love Again: 6 Simple Steps to a New and Happy Relationship,concurs: “Don’t sit back and hope love happens. Instead, get the facts for you and your children. You will love reading this book!” Dr. Everett Worthington, Jr., author of Couple Therapy: A New Hope-Focused Approach, says, “AT LAST — a superb research-based, reader-friendly guide to dating and mating after a significant romantic relationship has ended.” And Dr. Tim Cole, attachment-style expert and author of Broken Trust: Overcoming an Intimate Betrayal, calls this book “A must read… provides all the knowledge, skills, and tools single parents need to succeed at the complicated task of creating lasting love.” 

Non-scientists love the book, too. Susan Page, acclaimed author of If I’m So Wonderful, Why Am I Still Single, calls it “A wise, hopeful, and yes, factual guide for everyone who has loved and lost. This book will heal your heart and help you love again — this time, for life.” Licensed professional counselor Carrie-Lynne Pietig says, “Find laughter, healing, balance, and a partner to fearlessly love. As a counselor and a single parent, I highly recommend this book!” And attorney-mediator for family law, Joan N. Norton, recommends Love Factually for Single Parents: “We don’t get this mating training at home growing up… Add children to the equation and people definitely need this wonderfully specialized book.”

Dating industry leader eHarmony has also endorsed, calling Love Factually for Single Parents “The must-read for single parents in the dating arena. Brilliant.”

Why January Is The Best Month To Start Looking For Love

Wise Readers,

It’s a brand-new year—2019. And that means the right partner is more likely to be seriously looking for you than at any other time. 

Was this the holiday where you said, “By this time next year, I’ll be in a good relationship.”? You’re alone—but not alone! Having made it through another round of Hallmark holidays where it seems like everyone is happily partnered but themselves, people are ready to change their lives for the better—and ready to put serious effort into it. Just like there are more gym memberships started in January than any other time, more people join dating sites in January than other months. But did you know? Committing to the right partner has been proven to have much longer-lasting benefits for your health, happiness, and even wealth and career than any gym membership ever will. 

The upshot? You’re looking for the right person—and odds are, they’re looking for you, too. Right now! And: it’s worth it!

I would like to be part of your journey. To that end, I offer reasonably-priced coaching and books, all based on science and highly rated as truly helpful in bringing everyone—regardless of gender or sexual orientation—not just any partner, but someone Good For Them to build a life and love around. 

To that end, I have an announcement or three of my own for the new year:

1. Love Factually For Single Parents [& Those Dating Them] is available now, along with my established guide Love Factually: 10 Proven Steps From I Wish to I Do! The Single Parents book goes up for sale as a paperback, ebook, and audiobook on January 7th, but you can preorder immediately: 

Want a free chapter and a free workbook for this book? Visit www.lovefactually.co!
2. I’m always available for coaching, at reasonable rates and around the issues that matter to you. To learn more, please visit http://www.lovesciencemedia.com/consult/.
3. I answer all your letters—FREE! Anyone can write to me at any time, and I will respond, confidentially and free of charge. 
May your 2019 bring you love, and thanks for letting me be part of that.
