Martinis & Motherhood Has Been Released!

Today is launch day for “Martinis & Motherhood – Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?!”


Martinis & Motherhood – Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?! is a diverse collection of stories that offer the humorous, heart-felt, and poignant life experiences of motherhood through all of its evolving chapters as our children grow up. It’s broken up into three sections: tales of Wonder (where my story, Best Laid Un-Plans, can be found), tales of Woe, and tales of What-The-Fuck. One thing that I especially love about Martinis & Motherhood is how, no matter what your personal experiences with parenting are, there are plenty of moments you’ll be able to identify with, scattered throughout the book. Reading such varied stories is like sitting around with your closest friends, sharing and commiserating with each other through entertaining tales over drinks.

Speaking of drinks, each story is accompanied by a personalized martini recipe and toast. I don’t mind saying that mine, The Fearless, is a freaking delicious blend of orange, cranberry, and pineapple. There is another that caught my eye, in particular – a martini recipe titled The Perfect Christmas, and oh my gods, you guys – it sounds flipping amazing.

If you would like to buy a copy of Martinis & Motherhood – Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?!, and I highly suggest that you do, you can purchase a copy at Amazon today!

I would also like to take a moment to introduce everyone who contributed to the book. Beside each name, you’ll find their personal blogs (or Facebook pages) listed and linked so you can check everyone out!

Martinis & Motherhood – Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?! is a wonderful summer read to share with a book club or with the moms in your playgroup because it’s perfect for veteran mothers and expecting mothers, alike. Plus, martinis! (And for those expecting mothers, a few of the martini recipes have virgin mocktini instructions provided.)
