Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to book Carole for a speaking engagement or media appearance.  Who do I contact?


You may click here for additional information or for faster response, you may inquire directly at CaroleBrodyFleet@gmail.com.  Please note that this information is for professional inquiries only. We regret that we cannot respond to any other emails.

I've written a book (or want to write a book).  Does Carole help other authors get published?


Carole will be introducing, "The Write Difference; Publishing, Marketing and Getting Your Book into the Media"; an exciting course for those who are currently writing, wish to write or have written a book.  Check back for more information.


Can I reprint an article by Carole or reprint an excerpt from one of her books?

Carole's articles appearing in other publications or on other websites are copyrighted by the respective publications and websites as will be set forth in their respective Terms of Use.  All of Carole's books are contractually owned and copyrighted by the respective publishers and Chicken Soup for the Soul is owned by its publisher.  If you are interested in reproducing any of Carole's articles or excerpts from any of the books, you must first secure permission to do so.  You may request permission by writing to CaroleBrodyFleet@gmail.com and specifying which article(s) (or book excerpts) you are interested in reprinting, the purpose for the reprint and your contact information.

Can I order the books through the Widows Wear Stilettos website?


All of Carole's books are owned by the respective publishers and Chicken Soup for the Soul is owned by its publisher.  For that reason, all of the books must be purchased either at a bookstore or an online book retailer (such as Amazon, Tower, Barnes & Noble, Target, WalMart, etc) or at a personal appearance where books are made available by the publishers for purchase. However, the CD can be purchased through the website on the "Home" page. 


Is the CD a book-on-audio?

No.  The CD is completely independent of the books. “Widows Wear Stilettos: What Now?” looks at grief from a completely different perspective.  Rather than simply talk about only grief, the CD does several different things:


** Examines the emotions of the widowed based on individual circumstances surrounding the loss (Hint: Not all widowhood is the same).

** Examines the feelings of guilt, anger, despair…and how to overcome them all.

** Takes a close look at how to handle the people – and their opinions - that surround you.

** Gives practical financial direction.

** Teaches how to grieve while helping children as well.

** Helps both the newer widowed as well as those who have been widowed for a longer period of time.

** Examines the difference between proative and reactive coping…and how you can take control of your life once and for all.


Can I get my CD autographed by Carole before it’s shipped?


Because of the need to protect the CD in the shipping process; our strict shipping and refund policies as well as the volume of orders received, CD’s cannot be autographed prior to shipping.  However, Carole does autograph CD’s that are either purchased at personal appearances and speaking engagements (when the purchaser can remove the overwrap) or have been previously purchased and are brought by the owner for an autograph. 


Do you ship the CD outside of the United States?


Due to rising costs that we do not wish to pass along to the community, we must unfortunately limit international shipments to Canada only.
