I'm tickled three shades of pink to share the cover of my first full length hardcover humor book Fifty and Other F-Words: Reflections from the Rearview Mirror which debuts May 1, 2018 with Sterling Publishing. The candle will be shiny and raised. The yellow squares are glitter and will be foiled gold on the printed cover! Sparkly!
If you're a powerful, persistent woman over 50, you may like my new book. You may like it even if you're not a woman or over 50. If a 50 something hot pink coiffed potty mouthed wildly inappropriate liberal feminist who is three notches too loud, five notches too sparkly, and aging DISgracefully terrifies you, you may not like my new book. Or, you may find you like it a lot more than you thought you would.
I make no promises.
We've been fine tuning the manuscript for well over a year, but the essays, poems, and listicles are many years in the making. This is my story. It's raw. It's real. It's unfiltered. It's honest. I'm sharing my story because I want other women to know that 50 isn't the end of the line, it's just another stop on the journey.
Once my book is unleashed upon the world, it's out of my control. Rise or fall, I'm taking the leap. At the end of the day, at least I can say that I did it, and that's something upon which I might hang my jaunty beret.
