Actions Speak Louder

Since I'm starting my *online class, "The Secrets of Selling to Woman's World Magazine," next month, I thought it was about time to review another of their stories.

Story: "Just Fine" by Suzanne DuBois from the January 23rd issue.
Tagline: Sally realized how nice it felt to have someone who was really on her side.

Ah, the beloved beta hero makes yet another appearance. At a team-building ski weekend, Sally is drooling over her supervisor, while her friend, Josh, plays the part of the best friend standing on the sidelines. Of course, Sally realizes that Josh might be the man for her after all. I think the story imparts a terrific message: that a good man shows he cares by his actions.

Best Part: "Gathered in the hotel's meeting room, the office gang shared in some teasing--and Sally's 'horizontal' ski technique got lots of laughs."

Just My Humble Opinion: My pragmatic side makes me wonder about the wisdom in pursuing your supervisor, but that's really a minor complaint. This is light fiction, after all.

Grade: B

Hi Kate --
I'm taking your WW class and just thought I'd check your blog -- What I found is a blog better than many of the author websites I've seen! Great job -- love the "interactiveness" of it!
