Will it be winter in Kansas forever? Probably. But that doesn't mean good things aren't around the corner. Just in case summer does eventually make its way here, I have something special you can grab for your Kindle or throw in that over sized beach bag.
"Paige, is it a free sun screen giveaway?"
I wish, but no!
At various points in the past year, I retreated to my secret layer and wrote a book. It has mystery. it has suspense. It has cankles. Yes, my friends, cankles. And it will be here in June.
"June of 2030?"
No! I fought all urges to procrastinate, and decided it needed to be released within the decade. So, get ready. Mark your calenders. Shave a reminder on the back of the dog. And write it on the bottom of your coffee cup in something waterproof.
And now, a little something from the back cover. Yes, people, it will have a back. The pride I feel over that simple fact is overwhelming. For, when I was a little girl dreaming about writing a book, I swore to myself that book would have a back:
At Least My Belly Hides My Cankles: Mostly True Tales of An Impending Miracle is the hilarious debut novel of writer and humorist, Paige Kellerman. From the moment her positive test result is revealed in a fog of canine flatulence, to the day she's gently hoisted onto the delivery table by a front-end loader, Paige guides you through her pregnancy with twins, careful to only hold one of your hands in case you need to cover your eyes with the other. You'll laugh out loud as she recounts the horrors of birthing class, her struggles with morning sickness, sexy Halloween costumes, applying for maternity leave - and of course, the impossible task of corralling those wayward cankles — in her own inimitable style. This book is a must-read for any mother, or anyone who has a mother to whom they probably need to apologize.
...And you thought this summer was only going to be about doing fun things besides reading this book.
Until Next Time, Readers!
