Author Chloe Jon Paul Releases Entering The Age Of Elegance, A Travel Guide For The Mature Woman

Book serves as a travel guide for the mature woman who now stands on the threshold of the age of elegance

Chloe Jon Paul recently released Entering The Age Of Elegance, a guide for the mature woman who now stands on the threshold of the age of elegance.

The format of the book is similar to the travel guides published by Fodor, Frommer, and Lonely Planet. The book gives entry requirements, currency considerations, luggage check and travelers advisory. The reader will also get instructions for what to do at the boarding gate.

“Many women,” stated Ms. Jon Paul, “have spent their lives being someone’s daughter, wife, mother, or perhaps have been career women with no identity outside their chosen professions. As they approach mid-life, many of them want to hang on to their youth while others perhaps succumb to aging.”

“The goal behind writing this book was to his book to help women establish their priorities, investigate their options and to begin to zero in on the qualities that will help them become a woman of elegance.”

In the course of writing the book, Ms. Jon Paul talked with many women and, to her surprise, found that many women could not begin to fathom themselves as being elegant.

“Every woman has the potential to become an elegant woman,” she stated, “It begins with a serious examination of self to re-discover who you really are at this point in your life. Then you can go on to identify the qualities that you already have that are attributes of elegance, refine or eliminate any behavior that might prevent you from being totally elegant, and affirm yourself as that woman of elegance.”

Ms. Jon Paul’s engaging style of writing pulls the reader in with curiosity-evoking subtitles as Change Your Oil Filter, The FGA Quotient, The F-Word You Need to Use, The 10 Commandments of Aging Motherhood, Think MSN, Beyond Support Pantyhose, and Just Heard It through the Grapevine.

Ms. Jon Paul is available for interview and speaking engagements. She can be reached at the address below. Her book can be purchased at her website or by visiting, Barnes and Noble or Borders.
