I Just Want to Be Alone So Listen To Your Mother

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.

–Milton Berle

There is no other blogger on the internet better at building doors than Jen from People I Want to Punch in the Throat. Lucky for us, she builds monster-truck-garage sized doors big enough to spread the opportunity to other writers, too. You’ve heard of the Space Cowboy? Jen is the Literary Carpenter. We are so honored to be a part of her new anthology, I Just Want to Be Alone.

Now we may want to be alone, but we aren’t alone in this book. We bet you picked up on that when we mentioned it was an anthology. There are 38 funny women who make this book a “Buy it Now” kind of item. Oh wait, did we not mention that Jen is such a rock star that our book is available as a Pre-Order on Amazon!?

Believe the hype and order yours now so you can have it as soon as it’s available on March 22nd. If you need further enticement, enjoy these door hanger snippets of hilarity . . . and then order the book. Smooches.

But we aren’t done with our announcements! Our “door knocking” knew no bounds in February. We shook our tree a bit more and auditioned for the Baltimore Listen To Your Mother show annnnnnnnnndddd WE WERE SELECTED!

Are you like, “Yaaaaaaaayy, wait, what is Listen To Your Mother?”

Well, it is a series of live staged readings in 32 cities nationwide in celebration of Mother’s Day and motherhood. It’s heartfelt and it’s funny and it’s brave. You can read more about the Baltimore show here.

We would love for you to join us on April 26th. Tickets are under $12 and 25% of the proceeds goes to the House of Ruth Maryland. Buy them here. If you come and bring a copy of I Just Want to Be Alone, we would be happy to sign it for you. (See how we pulled that all together?)

Oh, but one more thing, while we are on the subject of Baltimore. We are part of the faculty for the new conference BlogU. It is going to be so awesome because it’s intimate, affordable, practical and empowering. Oh and fun. NickMom is sponsoring our Saturday night party. Limited tickets are still available!

In conclusion, things have been busy around here. If the blog is a-rockin’, do come a-knockin’.  Or something like that.

    Done! You ladies have arrived and now I’m here, cheering you on and waving the pompoms saying, “I know them! No really, they ate Chicken Viola at my house once way back when…” Go you! xo.
