Okay, get this– so, last year I got a few very exciting emails. One was from a Nigerian Prince who is my cousin, and he couldn’t get back into the country without $10,000 so naturally I’m going to help him because he has endless legal fees and I’m very helpful like that. He’s family, after all. But the other very exciting email was from a well-known blogger– I’ll call her Jen. She likes to punch people. In this email she claimed she had been following my blog and thought I was funny and basically invited me to contribute a story to a book she is working on.
Heh. YEAH, RIGHT. Do I look like I was born yesterday? I’m not gullible so I checked this book deal out with Prince Ohuwanawadacash and he said it’s totally legit! He said I should do it; I should reach for my dreams (and my wallet..) He is so funny sometimes, y’all! Anyway, I submitted a story and basically thought that was the end of that. But then Jen contacted me and said my story made it into the book!! I’m going to be a published author. In a book! I didn’t even have to sleep with anyone!
|Like Sue, I’m so freaking excited.|
The book is called I JUST WANT TO PEE ALONE. (You love it already!) It’s an anthology of humorous essays on motherhood by some of the funniest women on the web. How I got into this group I do not know; I’m as baffled as you are. Baffled but excited. The book comes out this spring, and will be sold on Amazon.com and in bookstores and everything, like a real book. It will also be available on Kindle, Nook and iPad. My story is super embarrassing, of course, so get ready. Throughout this process I’ve gotten to know many of the writers that are involved with this book– blogs that I’ve read for years and now I am friends with these bitches!! Some are already published authors so they are not freaking out like I am. I’m pretty new to all of this so the support from these ladies has been incredible. They took me by the hand, wiped the dirt off my blog with their mama spittle fingers and took care of me. I’m so grateful to each and every one and will be sharing some of their blogs here on my page so you can get to know them, too. Here are just a few ladies that I love:
I will be giving updates and details on the book release, where to buy, etc. oh, probably every ten minutes or so, don’t worry. I will also have an Amazon linky-dink on my page that you can click to buy. I’m going to make it so easy for you to give me your money!
Because as Prince Ohuwanawadacash will tell you, I’m very helpful like that.
