#Bookpromotion Menowhat? A Memoir – #Kindlecountdown

BREAKING NEWS book promotion

Just a heads up peeps, my book Menowhat? A Memoir will be on Kindle Countdown promotion starting tomorrow Thursday August 18th until the 25th. It’s unfortunate that Amazon is still keeping with it’s pre-historic  policy to only allow readers from the U.S. and the U.K. to purchase books on sale with the countdown. So if you’re American or British, you can take advantage of the .99 cent promo for a few days, and after the 3rd day it will rise to $1.99 before the promo ends.

“I often found myself drifting from a state of normal in a sudden twist of bitchiness.”

From PMS to menopause to what the hell?

Excerpt: Did I Move to the Sahara?


Remember when we were younger and our youthful bodies produced enough moisture that we didn’t feel like alligators? It doesn’t seem like so long ago, yet now I’m left wondering: How is it that I can reapply body cream three and four times a day, but within an hour or two, it completely disappears? Where does it go? Has my body become the keeper of Vaseline Intensive Care? Am I storing it subcutaneously?

Is this why I look bigger?

Winter, spring, summer, or fall—the seasons change nothing when it comes to this symptom of menopause. My skin is dry all the time, and so is my hair, leaving it like straw if I don’t use heavy-duty conditioner. Argan oil has become a mainstay for me, right up there with toothpaste.

Every time another body part fell victim to this reptilian syndrome, I gasped in disbelief. There was actually more to come!


Humorous and Informative Memoir

on November 15, 2015

What a treat of a memoir. For men it helps to learn about one horrendous phenomenon that women are punished with, and for women to be warned or reminded of what is to come, and most of all: for all of us to laugh. As the author puts is herself: Laughter is the best medicine, especially in something so unpredictable and unavoidable as the menopause.

Kaye writes with her signature style of honesty and humour, not pulling her punches and telling it is like it is. She describes the stages of the menopause and how she dealt with them and what the alternatives are; all the while keeping it light-hearted.
A quote: “this menopause **** is going to cost you extra bucks in the beauty department..”

Hers is a refreshing and wonderful approach. Having lived through it and having ridden the storm the natural way, she shares a lot of well researched information that led to her chosen and described choices in the battle with the menopause.

I must say, I did not expect this subject to be so enjoyable to read as it is. This contains sound advice, is practical and has a welcome focus on the best way to deal with this emotionally.

Review: “Meno-What? A Memoir: Memorable Moments Of Menopause” by D.G. Kaye | writerchristophfischer



Meno photofunia

It’s always a pleasant surprise when we’re going through blogs we follow and find that a fellow blogger has graciously posted something nice about us.


I came across this lovely review of my book MenoWhat? A Memoir while visiting author Christoph Fischer’s blog. Besides the warm and fuzzy feeling it gave me, I was also impressed with the fact that the book had not only received a great review, but once again it came from a male. Of course the topic of this book, menopause, is female oriented, but when I was writing it, it never really dawned on me how much help this book would be for the men in our lives to help understand the many moods and emotions women go through in that ‘uncertain’ time.

22881637Meno-What? A Memoir: Memorable Moments Of Menopause” by D.G. Kaye is a superbly written, entertaining and useful memoir that combines personal experience and well researched knowledge with helpful guidance, both practical and inpirational. Kaye shares her own experiences and provides important facts.
You should definitely read this, whether you need the advice or just want to have an informative and humorous read. Upbeat and entertaining this is a far cry from the book I had expected to read. This isn’t a miserablew ‘poor me’book but an inspiration.”

#Free Ebook MenoWhat? A Memoir — #Menopause #Humor

menowhat cover 600x900_72dpi

Just a heads up! My book MenoWhat? A Memoir will be free on Amazon today, Thursday November 5th until Monday November 9th.


This book is a humorous recanting of my memoirs on my not-so-sacred passage of what can truly be an exasperating time in a woman’s life. I say women because we’re the ones who have to go through it. But don’t feel discounted men, you may be interested in learning some of the whys about what your other half may be experiencing, and perhaps get some advice so you can better prepare yourselves for this ‘uncertain’ time.


For those women who have been there, done that, and may want to reminisce and chuckle after it’s done with, this book will undoubtedly remind you. And for those who have yet to enter the realm of the ‘Dragon’ phase, it’s never to early to get an education.

Five Star Treatment – Meno-What? A Memoir by D.G. Kaye | Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life

book reviews

 I’d like to thank my friend and writer/author Sally Cronin from Smorgasbord Invitation, for choosing my book MenoWhat? A Memoir,  to showcase on her esteemed blog.

Sally is well-known in the blogging community. She’s a person with a lot of wisdom and a wealth of information on many topics. Sally’s blog is aptly named because she blogs about an array of topics. You can find wonderful stories, Monday funnies, authors showcased, and several articles on health and well-being, and more, when you visit Sally’s blog. I’m so grateful to have been welcomed into her circles.

Below is Sally’s introduction to my book Menowhat? A Memoir:

“As we go into the summer months I am going to be selecting books for the series as well as asking you to contribute your own books or those of authors you would like to recommend.  There are now over 50 books in the series all with 5 star reviews and covering a very diverse range of subjects.. The link is at the bottom of the post.

It is safe to say that any woman who has reached 50 is in the middle of one of the most natural but often challenging transformations of a human body.  There is life after menopause and in fact there are countless advantages but during the process as hormones fluctuate up and down like a rollercoaster, physically, mentally and emotionally we also take the ride of our lives and usually drag hapless husbands and family members along with us!!”  . . .  Read More by clicking the link below:

Memory and Memoir……….Just a thought

Today's thought

I was speaking to a friend today and while I was in the middle of a sentence, I found myself in one of those all too familiar situations of late; when I totally forgot the context of what I was saying.  Of course I broke up laughing, but in that same moment, I said to my friend, “Holy crap, sometimes I find it so hard to believe that I actually wrote a memoir, going back almost fifty years in detail, yet I can’t even remember what I had for dinner the night before.”

I know that crazy “change” will do strange things to us, perhaps that is why I chose to write my second book, a satirical humourous tale of menopause.  We have to laugh at those blank moments which happen, along with the other memorable (or maybe not so memorable), side-effects that come with this phase of life.  I like to try and always make light of a not so favourable situation, as scary as it can sometimes be.

You just Godda laugh!
