*Section Two - Attracting Your Torrid Lover*
As you learned in the introduction, a Torrid Lave Affair is distinct from other love affairs. Because it is unique, and not common, finding someone to play in this realm with you takes conscious effort. Making sure the other person creating the love affair with you is on board for the experience and willing to contribute to it is key.

Chapter 6 - Would You Recognize Them if You Saw Them?

Chapter 7 - Follow Your Heart But Bring Your Head and Gut With You (or Hormones, Heart, Head, and Gut)
It is highly likely that you will find yourself attracted to them same type of people that you have been attracted to in the past.

Online dating has dramatically changed the landscape of dating in many ways. On one hand there is more choice than ever and on the other hand this choice is creating paralysis and relationship jumping fueled by FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). 

Though many people claim they are looking for “the one”, studies have shown that the gamification of dating through the apps is taking people away from finding that one and looking towards the many for their relationship needs. People feel they are coming up empty even though there is a perception of abundance. Chief Scientific Advisor Helen Fisher acknowledged as the fundamental challenge of dating apps…“The biggest problem is cognitive overload,” she said. “The brain is not well built to choose between hundreds or thousands of alternatives.”

This phenomenon is part of the foundation for the overwhelming loneliness many are reporting they feel. The quick snack, fast food intimacy is not a replacement for the nourishing possibility of intimacy and relationship with a deeper connection.

Vivek Murthy, the 19th Surgeon General of the United States, wrote in a Harvard Business Review article that "loneliness is a growing health epidemic," "rates of loneliness have doubled since the 1980s," and that "today, over 40% of adults in America report feeling lonely, and research suggests that the real number may well be higher." 

He goes on to say that technology has had a role in this, “For too many people technology has lead to substituting online connections for offline in-person connections…spending time on Facebook or other social media thinking that that is equivalent to sitting down and seeing a friend and talking to them face-to-face.” 

A recent survey conducted by Cigna asking 20,000 Americans ages 18 years and older revealed the following about the state of loneliness and connection:

  • 46% felt alone either sometimes or always

  • 43% felt that their relationships are not meaningful

Going back to the “way it was” is not the solution but what may be more rewarding is inquiring on how we can learn from the distant and recent past and evolve to create something that works for us and feeds our ability to connect, love, and thrive.

An article in Psychology Today (The Cure for Loneliness) reveals that one of the most powerful ways to shift this emotion is through “Changing maladaptive thinking”. Otherwise known as mindset and how you perceive the world. 

“Interventions aimed at changing maladaptive thinking patterns were, on average, four times more effective than other interventions in reducing loneliness.”

This book goes at the lack of connection phenomenon rigorously in order to dramatically shift the perspective of the reader and how they can easily and powerfully take back their ability to create authentic, deep, loving relationships by becoming the creator of magic in their own lives. 

This book is targeted towards single men and women who are interested in taking their love life and intimacy to the next level. They have had enough pain to know what they are currently doing is not working to fulfill and enliven their lives in the area of romantic relationships. They are willing to explore how to become responsible for how their lives go and are waiting for someone or something to show them how. 

While readers explore, experiment, and enjoy short relationships they will learn how to practice vulnerability and authenticity to create more meaningful relationships and how to attract the mature deep connections they really desire.

You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero (Perseus Books, 2013)

The highly entertaining Sincero delivers her self-help message through funny personal anecdotes, colorful language and gentle encouragement in You Are a Badass. The Art of the Torrid Love Affair also uses personal anecdotes, bold language and profound teachings to take readers on a journey of self-discovery, but the topic is focused on relationships, love and intimacy as oppose to finding your purpose, monetizing your talent and getting out of your own way in life. 

The Gift of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are  by Brene´ Brown (Hazelden Publishing 2010)

Brown addresses the core of what each of us seeks – a sense of worthiness that comes from simply being who we are. In her book The Gift of Imperfection, Brown uses a series of guideposts to look at how life teaches us to view ourselves through the lenses of others, rather than knowing that at our cores, accepted by others or not, we are worthy simply because we are. The Art of the Torrid Love Affair also defines guidelines that the reader can use to shift ones life but focuses on how love and practicing relationships can be a source of transformation. 

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert  (Riverhead Books 2015)

What leads to the willingness to take chances, live life to the fullest, and act on risky ideas? Glibert shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. The Art of the Torrid Love Affair touches on these themes but focuses on how we love and create relationships that transform us form the inside out. 

Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown (Spiegel & Grau; Reprint edition 2015)

It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people from all walks of life and found that their success lies in recognizing the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort. The Art of the Torrid Love Affair also follows these themes but applies them to the creation of powerful, impactful, and meaningful relationships. 

Mating in Captivity: How to keep desire and passion alive in long-term relationships by Esther Perel (HarperCollins 2006)

In Mating in Captivity, Perel looks at the story of sex in committed couples. Modern romance promises it all - a lifetime of togetherness, intimacy and erotic desire. In reality, it's hard to want what you already have. Our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. The Art of the Torrid Love Affair has a big theme about passion and how to keep it alive within the context of practicing short term relationship as oppose to the longer term relationships Perel studies and supports. This book is specifically to empower singles to create the mature relationship they have been desiring.

Why Publish with RJPP?

The book business is a difficult pursuit. Especially for an Independent writer. The decision to go it alone and self-publish, or go with a small press is strictly an individual business decision. Hiring professional freelance resources like editors, cover designers, and formatters can be daunting enough. Let alone that dreaded marketing and promotion. All of that takes precious time away from what you could be doing. Writing!

With an experienced Literary Agent, award-winning Author, publicist, and publisher like RJ Parker, you don't have to do it alone. RJPP offers years of success and reputation to represent you and your work. Ask yourself, “Do I want to succeed? Is my book worthy of reaping all it is worth and then some?” If you take pride in your work and want to excel to the top, RJ Parker will implement his years of knowledge and skills learned as an industry leader in marketing to get your work into the hands of the people who matter.

What about the nitty-gritty financial workings?

We don't pay advances as a traditional firm does. (which in this business, an advance is used against royalties before you get paid) BUT, we DO pay a much higher royalty rate AND you get paid every month! The standard industry royalty rate is 12-16%. We pay 50% to established writers, and 40% to new authors. (New authors will pay a setup fee of $2500 to cover costs). For the majority of authors, we pay the cost of editing, cover artist, ISBN number, formatting, etc.


If you are looking for mediocrity or status quo, RJ Parker may not be a good fit for you. However, Parker is a go-getter in the industry who will not cease until he makes your dreams become your reality!

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.

Project Bestseller logo Project Bestseller

Bestsellers are great. Long-term sellers are even better. We'll help you do both.

Project Bestseller is about creating bestsellers. More importantly, it’s about building author platforms and long-term success. We’re building books that sell well over time, generate income for their authors, and create a lasting impact for their readers.

How? The surface answer to this question is:
- crafting each book for maximum appeal to readers
- editing, design, and production with quality to match or exceed traditional publishers
- building an author platform to build loyalty and reach
- optimizing marketing elements such as keywords, categories, and sales copy
- leveraging promotion and advertising to generate sales at a profit

A deeper answer is: with strategy, curiosity, and intense passion.

Why? We believe good books should sell. If you're like most of our clients, you have a big vision for your book. It represents you. It says something about who you are. Now you’re ready for it to start touching lives.

You can probably think of half a dozen books that have become part of the grain of your life, because they gave you exactly what you needed at the time—whether it was a feeling, an experience, a different perspective, or just the information you needed to unlock your next possibility.

Now it's your turn. We can help you impact your readers with your book. It's what we do.

We've been helping authors finish and publish their books since 2012. Services include: ghostwriting, editing, cover design, book design, formatting, publishing guidance, launch planning, marketing.
