Almost exactly 5 years ago I released my first book, Polyamory and Pregnancy.
The last five years haven’t gone anything like I expected, but I did get another polyamory book out and got a lot of good shit done. Today I want to celebrate those 5 years. So for the next few weeks, Polyamory and Pregnancy and The Polyamorous Home are on sale for 40-50% off in both ebook and paperback.
If You’ve Been Waiting to Get Your Copy, Now Is the Time
As one of my Amazon reviews says, both books are “What is says on the tin.” Polyamory and pregnancy is all about, well, polyamory and pregnancy. The Polyamorous Home, ditto, all types of polyamorous homes including (yes) a section on solo-poly. They’ve been described as polyamory 101 books, but they are written FOR polyamorous people, so if you aren’t familiar with polyamory or are looking for an intro to polyamory book, look elsewhere first, then come back to learn more.

Please remember to leave a review!
Discounting the books by this much means for some of these sales I’ll be getting paid pennies. Please help me out by leaving a review so other folks can find my books.
Many people don’t realize how critical reviews are to authors. For one example, Amazon will begin promoting a book in the “If you like this, you might like that” section of the website only after the book gets a certain number of reviews. Please leave reviews for authors whenever your spoons/time allows!
Don’t miss my fiction
I’ve got a fantasy novel and a few short stories out as well.
Okay, it took me way longer than it should have, but I finally fought my way through the formatting. The Polyamorous Home is now available in paperback on Amazon.
Here, for the first time, is a guide to how polyam folk can create homes and living situations that suit our lives and our relationships. Whether you live alone or with a dozen of your partners, friends, and family, you can create a home life that works for you.
-Alternative living arrangements
-Budgeting for dates
-Moving in together
Hey folks, it’s official. The Polyamorous Home is now available in ebook at Amazon and other online retailers.
Some technical glitches have delayed the paperback, but expect it later this week.
Polyamorous relationships challenge the way mainstream society expects people to live. Mainstream assumptions about who sleeps where, how a family manages their money, and even who lives together, fail before the sheer variety of ways polyam folks build our relationships.

Prioritizing the individual or the community
I know the posting and everything kind of went to hell the last few months as I finalized getting The Polyamorous Home together. I expect to be more on the ball going forward, with regular posts Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday. Thanks for your patience while I dealt with both this book and release and various personal upheavals.
I’ve also managed to get a start on the next book in the Polyamory on Purpose Guide series. I’m currently about 13,000 words into the first draft of Safer Sex for the Non-Monogamous. Check out my Patreon campaign for irregular updates and early access.
The Polyamorous Home is now up for preorder as an ebook. I’m working on getting the paperback up. In the meantime, Dr. Elizabeth Sheff just shared her review with me. Check it out:
Review of The Polyamorous Home by Jess Mahler
With a great discussion of individual versus group needs and lots of helpful examples, Mahler’s new book The Polyamorous Home is a thoughtful and informative look at how polys can structure their living arrangements. From negotiating boundaries, sharing a kitchen or bathroom, working out finances, managing holidays, and dealing with changes like the onset of a disability, to personal/relational space, sleeping arrangements. legal hassles, solo poly homes, sharing housework, and exit plans, The Polyamorous Home is chock full of useful tips for new and long-time polyamorists.
