I Just Want to Be Alone

I’m pleased to announce that an essay of mine is included in the new humor anthology I Just Want to Be Alone, the much anticipated follow-up to the #1 best-selling book I Just Want to Pee Alone!


The official release date is March 22nd, 2014, but you can place your order today!  As most of you know, I don’t normally talk about my husband or marriage in public, but Jen persuaded me to share one story for this special book. As I read through it, I nodded, I cackled, I smiled my face off knowing that I wasn’t alone in wanting to be alone.



And make sure to add I Just Want to Be Alone to your Goodreads shelf, so your friends can join you in the fun!

From the Amazon description:

The second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series!

Don’t get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It’s just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that. Just for an hour … or a day … or a weekend. We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on his side of the bed. We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask? 

I Just Want to Be Alone is a collection of humorous essays from 37 of the most Super Cool Lady Writers you’ll find on the web. Including: People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Baby Sideburns, A.K. Turner, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, and Bad Parenting Moments.
