Once more: Buy my book
We are half way through the holiday season and I haven’t yet put in a shameless plug for my book. (Gasp!) But no worries, I’m going to do it right now, leaving you plenty of time to make a huge dent in your shopping list and put some much-needed ca-ching in my bank account.
So without further ado … buy my book! Entitled “Peace Out!”, this uniquely named anthology retails for an amazingly low, low price of $15.99, making it the perfect gift for friends and foes alike. Didn’t know I’d written one? Well now you do, so buy it. You can easily order 10 or 20 authentic copies at either Amazon.com or Barnesandnobles.com, and still have time to get your kids to basketball practice.
What’s it about? Me, of course. Along with my bald husband and crazy kids and a since-deceased gecko, among other things. In a nut-shell, “Peace Out!” is a collection of the best articles from my first three years of writing for Current. That means for most of you, it’s brand new hilarious material, including but not limited to, how Doo came to be called Doo and my infamous observations of a certain 2007 PTO fundraiser which nearly got me fired. Even if you’ve had the honor of reading my stuff since the beginning (lucky you), my book will be a glorious walk down memory lane. (Who can forget the time my three-year-old dropped trow in the main lobby of the library to the absolute horror of a sour-faced old biddy? That’s pure comedy, people.)
But wait, there’s more. If you order now, you can also have the pleasure of reading my favorite hate mail, which I have conveniently collected for you in an easily accessible appendix. Still not convinced? How about this angle: You’d be helping out a public school teacher who is currently working ten hours a day without a contract. No? Nothing?
Well, if not for me, then think about how many of your out-of-town friends and family who would just love to come home to a real, honest, highly entertaining look at parenting and marriage, but sadly cannot because they don’t receive the Current. It’s a disgrace, certainly, but now you can help. Buy my book and send some Christmas/Hanukkah love their way. What’s a measly $15.99 (plus shipping and handling) when it comes to the happiness of your peeps?
Bottom line, folks, the last check from my publishing company Dog Ear was only $3.79, profit from my total book sales in October, and I only have a few weeks until Santa is scheduled for a drive-by. Consider helping a gal out during this holiday season through the purchase of my book: Peace Out! (Now available!)
