From the dust jacket of her book, My Point...And I Do Have One:
My motto has always been "If you're going to read, it might as well be a book ...." So, as you might imagine, I was awfully excited when I was asked to write a book myself. But after the celebration was over and all the champagne was gone, I realized I had to actually write it ....
And that, dear friends, is where I am now ... I have to actually write it ... my book, I mean ... not Ellen Degeneres' book, because she already wrote it (her book, I mean, not mine - which I have to write), and it's actually pretty funny.
I hope I can do as well, or at least half as well, because, well, my subject matter is a little more sobering than hers, and I'm not quite as funny as she is, which is why she has a television show, and I'm a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom living in the suburbs and trying to figure out a way to survive and teach my children to survive while the world-as-we-know-it comes to an end.
And as you might guess, that's what the book is about ;).
The first draft is due in August. The book is scheduled for publication next Spring.
As Precious would say, "Oh, mySELF ...!"
You know how it feels when you've wanted something your whole life (since I was twelve, anyway), and then, it's finally happening, and ...?
Now I have to actually write the book.
