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: ROLEMOMMY.com:
“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…”
We recently signed on with Beth Feldman of RoleMommy.com 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
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
