Today is the 6 month anniversary of my book release! Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse, was released on May 7th, 2013, a special day I put on the tightest Spanx I had and tried to walk in heels. But hey, whiskey gingers abound!
I know six months doesn’t feel like a long time, especially because if this was a couple posting on Facebook I would roll my eyes to the back of my head and stare at my brain. But in bookland, this is a nice landmark!
I have experienced various changes since my first published works. For one thing, I’ve discovered “true red lipstick” looks good on me. Is this the mark of a mature woman? I sure think so! I also know that if somebody held a weapon to me and said “write 250 pages worth of content!” I could do that, although the person might need to give me a second.
Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse is in its 4th reprint, which is also pretty cool news. That means I still can go to various Urban Outfitters in NYC and find it. The last time I saw it there I was trying to find a pair of chic patterned pants that might work on me (I did not find them). A guy had put “Girl, Interrupted” on top of my book stack so I moved it. When I came back down the stairs HE HAD MOVED IT BACK! I think I have some enemies, obviously.
This is really just a note to wish myself a happy anniversary, which is selfish of me but whatever, BUT also: thanks for all the tweets, emails, instagram photos and ask box messages from you guys. They make me quite a happy camper, which is saying a lot because I do not camp and would not be happy if I did. All jokes aside, hearing that you have read and liked the book is truly a dream come true to me..although not my other dream of singing “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” with Jimmy Fallon. I have had this dream since I was 12.
I have other “things in the pipeline” that aren’t set in stone at the moment, but I’m not a head-up-my-ass blogger and I know it’s weird to like, try to pump people up and say “I’ve got some neato projects I’m excited about!” without telling what the projects are. Like, it’s YOUR LIFE you can be excited but tell us when you actually have the info! So I’ll just say that I will continue writing on the The Frenemy because free content on the Internet is exactly how I got here and I won’t forget that!
Okay. I’m done.
Also, links are on the side if you want to buy my book! So do it! Bitch has got to get that cheddar.
