Presents her new book
Just Have Sex: A Memoir of Love, Science, and Baby Dust
Saturday, October 15th at 11am
A fascinating and inspiring memoir that depicts one couple's journey through the trials of infertility.
Have you ever been told to “Just Have Sex,” which will cure the mystery behind your infertility issues?
Yeah, me too. I’ve lost count of the times and things I’ve heard from various people about my body and infertility.
I also can't count the number of trials, tests, and needles I experienced from every doctor who said, “this isn’t a guarantee but let's try...” The bottom line is that infertility is more common than anyone realizes... until you are the one experiencing it firsthand.
And so, I wrote this book for:
1. Couples who are experiencing infertility and do not want to feel as alone
2. People who want to educate themselves on some of the trials that infertile couples have to go through
3. People who love perseverance memoirs
“So, when are you going to have a baby?”
An innocent enough question until directed at a person experiencing infertility for over a year (which, if you didn’t know, is 1 in 8 couples!).
I hope you’ll learn just how ‘not alone’ you are as you follow our journey. Every journey is different, yet there is a mirror of reflection within each step and a spark of hope that I desire to give to you. So be easy on yourself and try not to compare or panic. But if you were like me, you might find comfort in reading about someone else who battled the Titans of Infertility.
Wherever your journey leads, only you can decide when it’s over. Take heart and do what is best for you.
Homegrown, local CPA turned Author
Ashley Guion is a local girl, born and bred. Raised in Swanzey, she left briefly to get her bachelor's degree in Business and Masters in Accounting, before returning back 'home.' A true New Englander, she wants to be here till she dies. Guion has nearly a decade of accounting experience both in private and public accounting, but her writing journey began relatively recently when her son started asking questions about things he was seeing and hearing at daycare. As any parent, her first response was to look for already-published books on the subjects but found there was limited material to choose from. Guion found that it was easier to explain abstract things like asthma and autism spectrum disorder by way of story-telling, triggering the beginning of her author career. Her goal was to fill the need that she was seeing in the market with inclusive stories that educated and appealed to young readers. Two years later and Guion is now the author of several children’s picture books and an infertility memoir.
