My goal is to read another 50 books this year (ok, I confess, I only read 44 on 2011!). I am happy to be participating in the Bestseller for a Day events! The goal is to take one title and sell enough copies to move it up the ranks at Amazon. Are you game?
Thompson explores controversial questions like:
- Can we outrun our DNA?
- Will we women always be slaves to our talkative nature (après sex)?
- Will men never be free of the chains of emotional withholding?
- Can we transfer man’s paper towel changing abilities from garage to kitchen?
But more than that, it’s about all the levels in which we communicate…viewed through Thompson’s looking glass of humor and deconstructed with her special brand of snark.
The other featured titles are:
Dr. Carolyn McCray has treated thousands of small dogs over the years and seen some big heroic acts from tiny dogs. And lots and lots of silliness. After years of simply telling her stories to friends and colleagues she was finally convinced to put these tender and playful stories into a collection.
Hence Pups in Tea Cups: Tales of “Littleness” overcoming BIG odds was born.
Dee Dee is just a bitter mother, a chick with a potty mouth, who didn’t expect it to be this hard. She love Martinis (she swears, she didn’t drink before she had kids), parties (socially sanctioned places to gather and drink) and kids who are quiet. She is a full-figured girl, redefining Fat Chic while wearing very high heels or the world’s most expensive orthopedic shoes.
Dee Dee has an opinion on everything, and as you can probably tell already, she’s dying to share it in “The Dee View!”
Has a funk has been following you like a shadow ever since that last rejection letter showed up in your inbox?
Does just the thought of writing make your stomach hurt?
Your critique partner insists you should try an outline because it would help you so, so much yet the very idea makes you gag. Ugh.
Never fear! MUSE FOOD is here!
The Myth of Mr. Mom is a collaborative non-fiction essay anthology written by stay-at-home dads that shares the personal stories of eight men from around the world.
The goal of the book is to help bring awareness to the fact that men are just as capable as women of being the primary caregiver, homemaker, and stay-at-home parent. We feel that there is a societal bias against stay-at-home dads that does not exist for stay-at-home mothers and seek to bring our stories to the public.
Filled with humorous anecdotes and eye-opening personal experiences, The Myth of Mr. Mom is simultaneously inspiring and entertaining.
The trend is hot, being on the fence is difficult. Your wait is over.
