It Starts

Well after twenty years with the same man in my bed, I'm single again.

The first thing I did was check out the online dating world to see what was available out there. Was there anything decent or should I be making a beeline for the nearest pet store to buy a bunch of cats? 

My first step into the online world of dating was such a shock and so forward that I almost deleted everything and seriously considered the cat angle. But, I've got some good friends who told me that I should probably stick it out and maybe even write a book about my experiences. 

So, that's what I've done. The Game of 51: Confessions of an Online dater is a series of short novella ebooks, each approx a hundred pages long, about my adventures as I look for the next Mr. Right. 

The title, The Game of 51 was suggested to me by a friend who read the 50 Shades of Grey series, because the first man to contact me was a dominant who has awoken an intense desire inside me.

I did a bit of digging and decided the title was good for a couple of other reasons too; first, dating is a game and second the 50/51 label for people by the police means they are crazy so be extra careful and 50/51 is slang in the dating world for a girl that is pretty enough to bang, but a whole lot of crazy.

I started this adventure four weeks ago. Take a moment to get caught up by reading the two first ebooks of the series, It begins and Regrets. Both are available as free downloads at most online books stores.

I encourage you to come along with me as I navigate the dangerous waters of the online dating world. The main character, Morgan Pellitier, yes me, will be experiencing some interesting situations, some of them while based in reality will be fictionalized, as I don't plan on putting myself into dangerous situations, or be taken in by scam artists for real. However, you never know I might just surprise even myself with the choices I make. I've already made some that I never thought I would, curious, read the free novellas to find out how Marc has me considering a dangerous path.

If you have a dating horror story you wish to share or want me to use in my novellas, please email me at thegameof51 at
