This is going to be a big week on MaNiC MoMMy as we’ll have THREE books for you (one will be the debut of my short story ebook on Thursday)! Make sure you come back to enter to win all three of them this week!
The first one is a memoir, and I love the memoirs I feature on here because, well, I only choose the best of the best when it comes to memoirs!
Falling For Me is by Anna David who has also written some amazing fiction including Party Girl and Bought if you haven’t checked her out before. Now I would describe Falling For Me as the cool chick’s Eat Pray Love, not that I didn’t enjoy Eat Pray Love, but Falling For Me is just a hip book.
And you’ll love Anna from the very first chapter when she falls in love with a married man but restrains herself, although they spend two weeks together. I don’t know how she did it because the passion was definitely there. She’s a great writer.
She gets back to NY after discovering she has fallen in love with a married man (but very good for her she didn’t act on it)! While lamenting the love that was not to be, she finds the book, Sex and the Single Girl, by Helen Gurley Brown, who was Cosmo’s editor for years beginning in the sixties. While some of Helen’s advice was less than sensible for today’s sexy single girl, Anna decides to embark on a journey following the advice in the book, in “the hope of overcoming the fears and insecurities that had haunted her for years.”
You’ll laugh at her dating antics, and some of them you'll be like ... whoa! (check out the excerpt down below!) You'll travel with Anna, get some decorating and fashion tips, learn to cook a mean roasted chicken, and read a great story when you get Falling For Me.
Read Chapter One here. I promise you’ll be hooked. But if this chapter doesn't snag you, read this one about how Anna beds a much younger man in her quest for finding herself -- Oh.My.God. Gimme summa dat! HOT! HOT! HOT!
To enter to win Anna’s book, and I’ve asked this question before on my blog, tell me if you were choosing a title for your memoir RIGHT THIS VERY MOMENT, what would the title be? Make sure, as always, to leave an identifying name so I know how to reach you/who you are, and also your email if you can!
Thanks to Anna for sharing her amazing memoir with us, and check in later tomorrow evening for another great book. And then on Thursday, I'll be sharing my novella, The Cell Phone Lot with all of you. If you haven't gotten any info on it yet, you can friend me on FB to learn more! (When you do friend me on FB, just tell me you read MaNiC MoMMy so I know where you're coming from please!)
Remember, MaNiC MoMMy is aiming to feature great books each and every week this year, and you’ll have a chance to win it as well! Please stop by often as I’m now posting new books more than once a week! Open to US/Canada residents only, and thanks to all the participating authors and publicists for providing the books. You can check back on this post over the weekend to see if you’ve won the book!
