Believe The Hype: I’m contributing to a new book!

Here is some of the early hype on the book.  I am excited to be a part of it and like they say at the Oscars, “Thrilled to be in such great company.”  I expect you all to buy at least 10 copies.  What?  Don’t worry about the economy, I’ll sign them and then you can sell them on eBay for a profit.  It’s a sounder investment than CitiBank.  See the wheels are always turning.

Excerpt from the Beth Feldman creator of the site:

“Okay…so I admit I am the worst person in the world to keep secrets. So I’m going to let the cat of the bag. I’m working on my next book and am so beyond excited about how great it’s going to be. It’s called C:// Mom Run and it’s going to be a humor anthology featuring essays from some of the funniest mom authors, syndicated columnists and bloggers that I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know over the past few years. While you may have heard of a few of them, what I can tell you is that these women are the Nora Ephron’s of our time. Every single one of them will share a story from their lives that some mom in our country (and probably abroad) will be able to totally relate to and laugh their sides off…”

Excerpt from Plain White Publishing:

We recently signed on with Beth Feldman of to create a series of books by bloggers, and this is our first –

C:// Mom Run: Side-Splitting Essays from the World’s Most Harried Blogging Moms.

We sent this cover idea to the contributors, and have been falling off of our chairs each time a new comment comes in! Please let us know what you think, too. Seriously.

Fun! (Although is it just me, or are her boobs FAR too a) high and b)
perky?) 🙂  Jenna McCarthy

Also there is a stop setting? Damn! Where’s mine? Can’t wait. The cover is very cute 🙂 Ciaran Blumenfeld Twitter: @momfluential

Think cover gal is wise to be wearing flats…they go famously with her ensemble, and harried in heels is a recipe for disaster!
LOVE the cover…great design, Beth!

Beth, I don’t know that I gave you permission to use a picture of me… but I love it. I hope the other girls aren’t too jealous that I made the cover. Maybe The bent hangers jutting out of my head will make them less envious. Don’t hate, those things really hurt. Though they get great XM reception. Jenny From the Blog

BAAAAA! That’s great! It’s no wonder we’re so harried when we have no arms with which to accomplish anything! Have you ever tried changing a diaper with your feet or typing with your nose? Actually I have tried that last one. Don’t ask. Wine was involved. Dawn Meehan

I had two colicky babies whom I held for upwards of six hours a day. I was so good at doing things without the use of both hands, I could have gotten a job with the Big Apple Circus – except they don’t let newborns on the trapeze. Typing with your nose? I’d like to see that. Jen Singer

Haven’t tried all of that — but I HAVE played the piano with my elbow. No wine involved. 🙂 And blindfolded. Sherry Shealy Martschink

Rosie from the Jetsons…..anyone??? anyone??? Nancy Friedman

I guess I’m late to realize she has no arms, which might be the least of her problems. Though I can barely get by with the 4 arms I have. Yea, I have 4 arms wanna make something of it? I suggest you back off. The kids in elementary school learned real fast not to pick on the 4 armed girl, for obvious reasons. Jenny From the Blog

    I don’t know…my shares of C might not be able to even buy one. Oh well, and I guess you really want me to buy 10. We’ll see.

  3. The Business Coach for Moms

    Congratulations!! I’ve been reading your blog for a couple of months now and truly believe your stuff deserves to be read by an even larger audience. U crack me up (not literally of course; that would be nasty!). I follow you on twitter and stumble your writings, I send links to my girlfriends (but they don’t appreciate mommy humour like you and me); I love it when you show up in my emails. I’m feel like a STALKER! You’ve even inspired a couple of ideas for my blog. Keep them coming or I’ll show up at your home and tie you to the computer. And don’t think that means I’m gonna baby-sit. I’m coming just to tie you to the computer and leave…I have to get back to my own.

    Your writing never ceases to amaze me. It’s almost like you “think in funny!!”, whatever that means. Loved this one as I love most of your work.

    I don’t even know what to say.

    Like, none of my funny is making it into a book.


    Where’s the funny commentator book?

    that is SO my book! I should be in that book.

    I want an alien on my cover. With cheese.

    And funny aliens writing funny quips, and fighting over being the cheese.

    You’re so cool! Being among the most harried and funniest mommies in the land is a fantastic honor. You’ll be our role model for generations to come. Got any pancake recipies? I can’t wait to get the book and sell lots of copies to friends. I’ll even keep it displayed in my office so patients can see what a really good mommy is like!
