And anyone who wants to sign up for a copy can now, cuz Amazon. They won’t get it til November. But neither will they suffer when the book sells out the first day.
I don’t know if that happens. But it might, don’t take chances with important matters.
The mother of my child hood friend, a deeply Christian, old-fashion values lady, private messaged me on Facebook after I put up my book’s listing.
“Honey I need to ask you how scandalous is this book? will I be able to read it ? will I be fire engine red all the way through the book?”
I’m glad she asked.
I could never write a book that would alienate all the old-school proper ladies I’ve known and loved in my life. (Their husbands….totally. Old school husbands will regard this book as a troublesome curiosity and then probably go out of their way to avoid it, bless their hearts.) This book, as I told her, doesn’t have a single swear word or anything crass. In fact this book is dedicated to the eradication of crass.
It’s merely cheeky. I am quite cheeky. I purposefully set out to write a book that would appeal to a 22 year old radical feminist lesbian AND her 80 year old Mormon Grandma. And I think I did.
All right there is one part where I describe, at length, why I would not urinate on Harvey Kellogg even if he were on fire, but I believe after reading the book neither would you.
No, I told her. It’s not a dirty book. It’s a “just between us girls” book.
Providing us girls are smart and like busting up in laughter. And we do.

Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!!!
I am so, so happy for you. Now go get Anna at doorsixteen.com to redesign your cover.
Those are some eye catching covers she made. But…I like mine. It wasn’t the first version. They worked hard on it, simple as it is, and I think it will get the job done. Plus, I don’t think they were going to shell out for an outside designer for a first book.
