Since the end of Guiding Light, the beloved Tina Sloan (Ex-Lillian) has been one busy woman.  First playing to sell-out crowds with her one-woman stage show Changing Shoes, and now come September 16th the book version, Changing Shoes: Getting Older — Not Old — With Style, Humor, and Grace will be available in bookstores near you. However, you can go the Changing Shoes website and pre-order it now!

In a recent interview with TV Guide, Tina revealed why she made the the decision to write the book and stage show, which details growing older and staying vital in a world, in a market that accents the young and the gorgeous, and how Sloan pulled herself out of a dark funk that inspired her.  Sloan elaborated, “I allowed myself to feel diminished by the world and then I decided I wasn’t going to let that happen anymore. I fought back. I lost a lot of years but now I realize that loss made me who I am right now. For a while there, I resigned from the world. At GL, I stopped going into the production office to talk to the people who make the show. I just stayed in my dressing room eating and eating. But when I started going back into that office, and chatting with the other actors in their dressing rooms, that’s when I started to come alive again. That’s how Crystal Chappell and I became great friends, and that’s why I’m on [Chappell’s web soap] Venice. When they called me to do [the web soap] Empire, I said yes! You have to keep yourself relevant. And as I started writing the book I started losing weight because I was happy again. It’s so easy to slip into that place of nonexistence. It’s like going into a coma. You’re there but you’re not there, like you’re living in a wide-awake dream.”
