I’m very excited to announce that I sold my book to Tidal Press and it will be traditionally published in May/June of 2017!!!!

The book is a collection of comic essays, a few you might have read here plus many brand new ones never before seen!

Between the essays are updates on my life that take place over two summers: the first, when I’m stuck smack in the middle of my mother/daughter sandwich and wanting to please everyone yet satisfying no one, and the second, three years later when I’m trying to savor every last freaking minute before my eldest leaves for college and consequently rips my beating heart from my chest and stomps on it with her expensive Doc Marten boots (metaphorically speaking of course).

The title – well that’s still up for debate. All ideas are welcome! Probably the title should have something to do with summer. Something catchy and funny that makes people want to buy a copy instantly.  That’s all I require.

If you’d like to leave your email address in the comments, I’ll be sure to send you a note when the book is released.

Thanks for everyone’s encouragement over the years. So many of you have been so kind and supportive. I truly appreciate it.

More details and updates to come!

    Congratulations! As one caught in the ‘being a daughter’ – ‘being a mom’ sandwich before my close-held love ones graduate/retire and move on to greener pastures – I suggest, “The spring I thought I would die from the stress of it all – and the fall when I did whatever the heck I wanted – without checking anyone else’s schedule first…” –

    Don’t worry if it’s too long – to day, here’s my fave book in my personal library, that the author held firm to his title:

    “How to Grow More Vegetables, Eighth Edition: (and Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops) Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You … (And Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains,) ”

    LOL – Honest!! http://www.amazon.com/Grow-More-Vegetables-Eighth-Edition-ebook/dp/B0050DKZZW

    But seriously, so happy for you! and the wider world, who will come to absorb and benefit from your art! 🙂

  7. fantastic! congratulations, Kristen!
