I’ve been writing since I was a child. In between my multiple readings of The Boxcar Children, I wrote my own erstwhile adventures about unconventional, inventive children who ran away from dark times and sought adventure. Those stories morphed into the pre-teen angst filled Sweet Valley High-esque tales of social blunder, puberty and unrequited love. Then, unrequited love took a turn into abominable poetry. I’ve never loved any non-human thing more than words on paper. I’m still head over heels, still all in with this life-long love affair with writing.
It was no secret to my closest friends and family that I long dreamed of being published. For the second time, this dream has come true. At midnight does my coach turn into a pumpkin? Will my Fairy Wordmother show up with her wand? Back off bitch, I’m keeping the glass slippers. And my books.
In celebration of this momentous occasion and in appreciation for the opportunity and in gratitude to you and you and yes, YOU, for being a huge, supportive part of my writing journey, I’m giving away 15 books. Mmm-hmmm. That’s right, y’all! FIFTEEN books. Just tell me why you want a book or that my hair smells nice. Just leave a comment and you’re entered to win what is already sweeping the Amazon best-seller charts. Like that song you can’t get out of your head (Blurred Lines, you know you want it! You know you want it!). You do want this.
So, thank you. And, leave a comment, won’t you?
Hooray for books! (Can’t wait to pull a winning ticket? Click on that handy “Buy My Book” widget-ma-gidget on the top right and get you some!)
Thank God for girlfriends and shared visits to powder rooms! That’s always been the concept behind our website InThePowderRoom.com where we’ve entertained women with our humor and bold, brave honesty since 2009. Now we’ve created an anthology of 39 original short stories from the wittiest women writers we know—stories they would only tell their closest friends, most likely from within the haven of a ladies’ room.
“You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth” is a hilarious collection of true tales by women, for women, about being women—bodily changes, relationships, careers, motherhood, aging, illness, and more—written with the humor and grit that proudly sets In The Powder Room apart.
But be forewarned: we’re holding nothing back. We’re revealing our funniest deep dark secrets—because it’s through our most vulnerable and honest moments that we forge the strongest connections and discover we aren’t so alone after all.
