It’s here!! I’m beyond excited to release my third book, Chin Hairs & Back Fat, Somewhere Between Tweezers, Yoga Pants & a Box of Wine. It’s a compilation of many of your favorite essays from Laugh Lines, plus a few you haven’t read yet, all in one place!
My personal stash arrived this week, for readers who want an autographed copy. I’ve been staring at it for two days (and occasionally petting it). Hubs keeps reminding me that I’m a supposed to be a writer, but my entire vocabulary has apparently been reduced to “This is AWESOME.”
This book is a fat little guy, 365 pages, busting with humorous essays on aging (almost) gracefully in a youth-obsessed society. It tackles the issues of life after 50, with irreverent advice on love (we could all use a different perspective from time to time), marriage (on my third one. I’m an expert), sex (contrary to what our children think, we do still like it), BFFs (why we need them), and fashion after 50 (rules are made to be broken). There are personal anecdotes, where I share my most embarrassing moments for your entertainment, and my musings about the hilarity of aging. Together with a booty-load of how-to lists on navigating the fine line between trying to stay young (often deeming us vain and shallow), or thinking “Screw it. I’m going to age naturally” (also knows as “letting yourself go”), I hope this book will help guide you through the waters of midlife with a smile on your face and laughter in your heart.
Chapter titles include:
You Shouldn’t Have. Really, You Shouldn’t. The Husband’s Guide to Valentine’s Day
My Scale Mocks Me. She Needs to Die
Empty Nest. First You Cry. Then You Laugh
