ABOUT THE BOOK


Dr. Joyce Willard Teal proudly presents her eighteenth published book, So You
Want to be a Lady, with an impetus close to her heart To encourage girls to
become ladies while sharing an overall theme that will encourage ladylike
behavior. While developing the book, Dr. Teal discovered varying viewpoints of
the definition of a lady. Therefore, the new book is written to encourage an
audience of adolescent girls and their parents. She wants the reader to learn how to
become a lady and that it is a choice that she can make for herself. In fact, its one
that only she can make. Dr. Teal wants the reader to remember that it takes
character to behave in a ladylike manner, regardless of the circumstances.
Dr. Teal also learned during the writing process that girls need guidance and role
modeling to encourage their choice on how to become ladies. Parents and family
are encouraged to read the book with their daughters and take time to have regular
and on-going discussions on becoming a lady.
When it comes to advice for aspiring writers, Dr. Teal suggested: PROOFREAD,
PROOFREAD; PROOFREAD. Too many writers publish books that are fraught
with errors.
When asked, Whats next on the horizon for you?, she promptly responded with
two simple words Book promotions! Other book titles written by Dr. Joyce
Willard Teal include Its OK to Be Different; Sister, Its Not Okay; and The Trilogy
(Dont Sweat It, Kid; Hang In There, Kid; and Just Do It, Kid).
