So, I’m not sure if you realize it, but I’m kind of a big deal. If you have visited my blog the last couple days, you might have noticed a picture over to the right on that sidebar there ———–> with a link to a certain book attached. Yeah, so yours truly actually wrote an original essay, and that essay is in that book. And yes, the book has been published, thank you very much. You heard me . . . I am a published author.
No, no, please. Keep the paparazzi back. I can’t take all this attention and fame and fortune! I just want to be normal, like all of you little inconsequential non-authorial people! Why must I be hounded for my brilliance and beauty?? Why???
Ahem. Wait, what? What do you mean “the fame is going to my head?” I still put on my platinum encrusted pants the same as all of you! One leg at a time and immediately before putting on my diamond encrusted shoes. Hmph.
Ok, fine. Let’s get real here for a minute. I am indeed a contributor for a recently published compilation book. The book is called All Cracked Up: Funny Stories of Life, Love and Loonies, and has a sampling of essays from multiple bloggers around the blogosphere. It is currently in e-format and can be purchased from Amazon here.
And seriously? It is pretty F-ing funny!! I have one essay in it that is all about my love for Nutella. But there are so many other funny stories. Really, it is worth a read. From non-sexy boob grabs, to exhibitionism, to raging hormonal killer moms and of course a forbidden love of all things chocolate and nutty. There are some truly gifted and humorous writers involved in this project. Oh, so you want to know who the other authors are? Ok then, here they are:
Dogs on Drugs
One Day I’ll Be That Guy
Six Fingered Monkey
Incoherent Ramblings of a Moose
Misty’s Laws (That’s ME!!)
That’s all of us up there. All of us warped, twisted, crazy bloggers that submitted material for this compilation of blogger hilarity. You may know some of them, and some may be new to you, but I guarantee that you will enjoy all of their essays. They are creative and irreverent and hilarious. I truly feel honored and humbled to have even been included in this project with all of these other incredible bloggers, and I really want to thank Pish Posh & Gloria for making this happen. For some reason, they contacted me and asked if I would contribute something, and when I whipped something up, they actually liked it. I am so grateful to them for allowing me to be part of this project. ((Gush over)).
Ok, so you know who’s in it. You know what’s in it . . . what are you waiting for? Get over there and buy that thing!! I mean, it’s only $2.99 for all of that brilliance and humor condensed into one volume of work! How have you not purchased it yet?
In fact, why don’t you just mosey on over there, purchase it, read it, and then come on back to the Amazon site and rate it. It would be so great for people to give it really good ratings so others would be more likely to try it. You could even be the first!! And I sure know how commenters like to be the first one to comment on anything. So, this is your chance. Get on over there and give it a glowing recommendation! Do it. Do it now.
I mean, no pressure or anything (go), only if you really want to (do it), I wouldn’t want to force you to do something you didn’t want to do (it’ll make you feel good), really, it’s totally up to you if you think it’s right (I am holding your family hostage right now and will only release them once you buy it and give it a glowing review!). Really, don’t let me sway your decision at all.
Oh man, I can see it now. This thing is gonna be huge!! Like Jenny Lawson aka “The Bloggess” huge! In fact, I can just see us nipping at her heels on the New York Times Best Sellers List. Look out #1 . . . here we come!!
Now, where did my personal assistant put my tiara? I will need it for when I meet the Queen to impress her with my fancy-ness!
