Have I ever mentioned how amazingly talented my friends are? Talk about literary genius! The only reason I hang out with them is because I'm secretly hoping they'll spill the beans and give away their secrets for juggling careers, kids, husbands, divorces, sailing around the world, backpacking through third-world countries and writing while somehow staying alarmingly beautiful and getting the hook up with publishers.
Perhaps you remember Corbin Lewars? She calls me Angelina. As in, Jolie. A har-de-har-har reference to my collection of children, I assume. I'm certain it's not the result of my lip plumper. Anyway, Corbin's book recently hit the shelves of your favorite local independent bookstore. I haven't snatched up my copy yet, but I've read and heard excerpts and can't wait to read the rest!
You can order it from your local indie bookstore using the link below:
Some may say it's not enough to have one genius friend, and some are right. That's why I keep Monica Murphy LeMoine on my list of names to drop. Monica's book is - believe it or not - a humorous memoir of miscarriage and stillbirth, among other things. Believe me when I tell you you'll find yourself laughing, and not even feeling guilty about laughing at a Dead Baby Momma. Well, not very guilty, anyway.
Support the amazing Monica (who just gave birth to a baby boy - welcome, Sean!) by ordering her book through the link below. (For some reason, Indiebound can't locate her. I'm going to send you through Amazon for this one - for now. As soon as she gets into the Indiebound catalog, I'll update this link!)
Are you jealous of my freakishly talented, hot friends yet? I know you are. That's why I'm going to rub it in and share again about Janna Cawrse Esarey's book, which is amazing, entertaining, and just plain great to read.

Forget personal trainers and lipsuction... If I'm going to keep this kind of company, I need a publishing contract to look good.
