Page Turner of Poly.Land is someone that John Brownstone follows and reads nearly every day. Page blogs every day, actually, so she definitely gives him plenty to read and love. He also read her book A Geek’s Guide to Unicorn Ranching and really enjoyed it. So you should have seen his eyes light up when I told him Page had a new book coming out.
Her site is amazing, and Page is one of the resources he and I recommend when someone asks us questions about polyamory and non-monogamy that we don’t feel qualified to answer. He’s excited about Page’s new book, Dealing with Difficult Metamours, and I’m excited to be able to let you know about it!
If you’re exploring non-monogamy, there’s a very good chance you’ll deal with a difficult metamour at some point. Page Turner’s new book can offer real help when that happens.
About Dealing with Difficult Metamours
The first book devoted solely to metamour relationships, Dealing with Difficult Metamours is a troubleshooting guide for those who want to get along better with their partners’ other partner(s).You’ll find out about the different types of metamours and strategies you can use to manage those relationships as well as ways to boost your personal resilience no matter what stressful situation you might find yourself in.
From Page Turner:
Dealing with Difficult Metamours is the first book devoted solely to metamour relationships.
These days I’m a person who is frankly blessed with amazingly gracious partners and metamours. But was it always this way? No way. I’ve had my fair share of difficult experiences with metamours. At one time, I had the Metamour from Hell.
And even though some time has passed since I’ve experienced major metamour strife, as a coach and a writer I continue to work with people who are struggling to get along with theirs.
The good news is that there are plenty of ways to reframe and deal with challenging metamour behaviors.
In this book, you’ll find the following:
- The 10 most common difficult metamour behaviors and practical ways to deal with them
- Tried and true, research-supported methods for having difficult conversations
- Strategies for improving your overall personal resilience, no matter what stressful situation you find yourself in
While there’s plenty to be learned from tackling this book on your own, you’re likely to get the most benefit if you read it with your metamour and shared partner.
Because of that, I created a readers’ guide in the back of the book with activities and reflection questions for metamours and their shared partners that can help facilitate discussions about the material.
I have done my very best whenever possible to give readers practical advice and takeaways — suggestions that are tested and actually work. I’ve also tried to provide the reader with strategies for coping better with situations where they don’t have much influence or control over what happens.
It’s the book that I desperately wished had existed when I was dealing with a challenging metamour.
