BIG NEWS! Housework Harmony Launch Day is Here

Today is the Official Online Housework Harmony Launch Day, and I have a sentimental reason for being glad you dropped by. It's related to the dedication page inside the book, which reads as follows:

For my father Gordon McAllister
who showed me how much a
husband and father should care

One of the happiest aspects of this book for me is that I was able to read this dedication to Dad before the book was published, and I got to see the genuine surprise and pleasure on his face when he learned of it. Unfortunately he has since passed away so he is not here to help celebrate the launch. What you may not know is that Housework Harmony Launch Day is February 12th — my father's birthday. This is one more small way I can honor and celebrate his life, and I'm grateful that you've dropped by to help me do so. Thank you!

I'd like the launch event to help as many people as possible access the book one reviewer called “the most compassionate and fair-to-both-genders relationship guide since Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.” Consequently, from now until Valentines Day (this Friday, Feb. 14th) the e-book is available from Amazon for the introductory promotional price of $1.99.

Here are three reasons for ordering your own copy:

  • Are you among the 57% of couples who can't seem to end up on the same page when it comes to household chores? Would you like understand how to uncover the real reasons behind your frustration? You can learn low-stress ways to fall a little bit more in love with each other every day.

  • Do you know someone who has a bridal shower coming up this year? The Housework Harmony paperback makes a great chuckle-worthy gift that can also make a real difference in the new couple's relationship. It's an affordable gift at only $11.99.

  • Are there any therapists, marriage counselors or family-oriented bloggers among your Facebook friends or Twitter followers? Housework Harmony is a valuable resource for couples in crisis, and I'd welcome your help in spreading the word.

Cover Reveal: Housework Harmony

I am excited to announce that Andalusia Press has recently released my newest book, entitled Housework Harmony: Building a loving partnership through domestic cooperation. I am delighted with the cover! What do you think?

Here is a description of the book:

Looking after your home and your children can place constant demands on your energy and free time, which is why housework is so often the flashpoint that brings out relationship challenges. Housework Harmony turns this problem into an opportunity by showing you how to replace tension and resentment with supportiveness and a growing sense of closeness. This book uncovers the many behavior patterns, commonly held assumptions, societal pressures, and other hidden landmines that influence how couples choose to share their domestic workload. Housework Harmony provides alternative approaches that will have you and your significant other cooperating like never before, opening the door to a loving partnership that will spill over into all aspects of your relationship.

Housework Harmony makes a great bridal shower gift!

5-Star Reviews for Housework Harmony

“The conversational style and humor in this self-help book make it an easy read. [The author] has an uncanny ability to get inside the heads of males and females and offers realistic approaches to resolve recognizable conflict situations in language that is easy to understand. Housework Harmony will help you communicate effectively as a loving partner so you can get what you need. I highly recommend this book.”

“This book was Amazing! I rated it a 5 star because it is. The writer applied both female and male sides to perfection. In this book the writer has it perfected for readers to find Harmony, not only in housework but in a bonding relationship. Great work!”
    – Doris McKay

“Andrew McAllister manages to sweep the excuses, arguments and bantering over household chores into the dust bin while presenting both men and women with practical angles and solutions for sharing the load. The down-to-earth, humorous slant keeps you engaged and listening while he points out sensible answers and ways to defuse and channel your concerns and needs into a resolution you can both be happy with. Would suggest this as a gift for every new couple starting a life together and for every established couple having issues. This book can only strengthen a relationship!”
