I SOLD MY BOOK!

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 9.26.39 AM
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!

My Picture Book Available on Kindle Now

cover-image

 

I wrote a picture book!

It’s a counting book with fun rhymes and cute and funny illustrations by my very talented niece, Natalie Berger, who has a Fine Arts degree in Illustration.

For those of you with tiny tots, or  who perhaps need a little refresher on your  own 1-10’s, it’s a steal at $2.99!

It’s only on Kindle for now, but later, who knows?

Reviews are also welcome – thank you!
