Yes, you read that right!  I’m now a published author, and have a piece in the book, “You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth’ And Other Things You’ll Only Hear From Your Friends In The Powder Room which was released today.

Obviously, since I’m in it, you know the quality is top notch, and the other writers are equally hilarious. Honestly, I have no idea how I was asked to write for this book, but I’m not going to knock it.

I suspect they really wanted to ask Lisa Lampanelli instead, and just confused email addresses.

Whatever the reason, I’ll take it!  I just hope they don’t realize Lisa Lampanelli isn’t in this book.

So please, oh please, check out this book, and by “check out this book” I mean buy it.  Don’t check it out at the library, as that’s lame.  I mean, who uses libraries anymore?  Okay, lots of people do, but whatever.


It’s available for Kindle and in paperback, and I believe more options will be released soon.

Please note one of the other options coming soon is not for me to come to your house and read it to you personally, although that could be an option if you pay me in cupcakes and Chipotle gift cards.

Lipstick photoIf you’re interested in the exciting possibility of a live reading, please contact my agent at Sure, that looks like it’s just my email address to my blog, but my super important agent checks it from there as she likes to keep a low profile.

Okay, my agent is me, but whatever.

Seriously.  Please buy the book and tell everyone you know to buy it too. Perhaps you should just buy a bulk order and send it to everyone you know. I can guarantee you will laugh.

Come to think of it, you should buy a package of Depends when you buy the book because you’ll probably pee your pants with laughter (especially if you’ve had children and the resulting loss of bladder control that’s a side-effect of giving birth.)

I will stop babbling now because you’re going to go buy the book.  It’s currently in the top 50 on the Amazon Best Seller List for Humor, so obviously lots of other people love it too.

Either that, or my mom is taking out a second mortgage to purchase all the books she can.  Either/Or.  Just buy it.

    Kate just rambled about…Ten Things of ThankfulMy Profile

  18. Dude. Are you frickin’ kidding me? I totally thought you were Lisa Lampanelli. SHIT! Well, fortunately, your story about the similarities between going to the DMV and the GYNO is SO DAMN FUNNY that I don’t think readers will mind when they discover your aren’t that other Lisa. Seriously though, so honored to have you as a co-author. Big things in store for you, funny lady. Hugs! (Not drugs…unless those drugs have a really reasonable co-pay, then fine.)
    Leslie just rambled about…Do I have lipstick on my teeth?My Profile

    • Thanks for including me. I hope I don’t let you down, or if I do, I hope your co-pay is reasonable enough to allow you to cope with the disappointment.

      I sent you a few more pieces for ITPR about a month ago, but I figure you’ve been swamped with the book. Whenever you’re ready, there are two ready to go!

      I’m pretty sure you need to come up for the Meet Me In St. Louis…In the Powder Room book signing. Yes, it’s happening.

  20. There is no way that they mistook you for Lampanelli. You seem like you sleep with WAY fewer random guys, and spend WAY less time in rehab.

    Annnnd thanks for helping me spend cash today. 🙂 CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!
    Megly Mc just rambled about…Guess I Better Stop Talking About Robbing Those Banks In the 80s, Too, Huh?My Profile

    • Thank you for thinking I’m way less slutty than Lisa Lampanelli, I agree, and think I’m cuter too…and I don’t have man hands.

      Thanks for buying the book! I genuinely think it’s hysterical, and not just because I’m in it. I will be shocked if you don’t thoroughly enjoy it.

      Let me know what you think, and thank you so much for reading and commenting. 🙂
