Blog and a Book Deal: Introducing, "Love With A Chance of Drowning," by Torre DeRoche

Posted by Navdeep Singh Dhillon

Torre DeRoche recently sold her very well written memoir called, "Love with a Chance of Drowning" to major publishers and also the movie rights. It's a brilliantly titled book, with an engaging premise:

She meets Ivan, a handsome Argentinean man with a humble sailboat and a dream to set off exploring the world, Torre has to face a hard decision: watch the man she’s in love with sail away forever, or head off on the watery journey with him. Suddenly the choice seems simple. She gives up her sophisticated city life, faces her fear of water (and tendency towards seasickness) and joins her lover on a year-long voyage across the Pacific.

Initially, I was going to post this under the category of "Fiction," but then I took a look at her blog and was floored at how brilliantly she used it to market her book and herself. So it fits very squarely with both forms of writing. 

Her blog does away with the conventional "rules" of writing blog posts, such as to post often, and short posts. She does neither. But what she does is put in a tremendous amount of effort into each blog post and strategically makes it fit with the theme of her book. It's an elegently designed blog and the reader knows exactly where to go for content. No matter what kind of a writer you are, I would strongly suggest taking a look at her site and picking up a copy of her book: http://www.fearfuladventurer.com/book
