9781938778001: Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Being a Woman

Funny! Daring! DIFFERENT! Not Your Mother’s Book (NYMB) is a new anthology for a new century. Women of all ages and with very different life experiences have shared their personal stories for "Not Your Mother’s Book . . . On Being a Woman." Some are seasoned writers, others simply have great stories to tell, but all are stories that women can relate to--and laugh about. The authors write candidly and most with great humor, about life as a woman, be it learning about sex as a teen, dealing with husbands, handling the dreaded menopause, dieting, clothing mishaps, managing goofy relatives or any of the dozens of other women-focused life experiences. Chapter titles include: Just Saying; They’re Called Boobs!; Keeping Up Appearances; Worth Our Weight in Gold; Hear Me Roar; Stand Up!; Never Again!; and Sense and Sensibility. NYMB stories are hip, fun, daring and DIFFERENT! No sad, sappy, preachy or death and dying stories here. And there is nothing X- or R-rated, but definitely edgy! Story titles include Honey, You’re a Fat Ass; Single and Searching; Tawdry Behavior; and Everything’s Bigger in Texas. Series founders Dahlynn McKowen and Ken McKowen spent 10 years as Chicken Soup for the Soul coauthors/editors before launching NYMB. "Not Your Mother’s Book . . . On Being a Woman" is the first in the new series, with another 30 titles under production. "Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Being a Stupid Kid" will be released in late October and features stories about all those stupid things we did in our youth. "Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Dogs" will follow in November, as well as "Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Travel." For more information, including submitting a story for consideration, visit www.PublishingSyndicate.com.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Each title in the Not Your Mother s Book series contains approximately 60 real-life stories dedicated to a unique theme, drawn from the passion and experience of dozens of writers in a whimsical and entertaining mix of irreverence and humor. Founded by former coauthors and editors of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, this similarly styled anthology series foregoes the sad, sappy, preachy, or death-oriented stories that were that series hallmark, and unlike that series, is never afraid to be a little risque. These stories are funny, daring, different, and smart.Giving women a reason to laugh out loud about being a woman, this title shouts out, If you ve got it, flaunt it! And the women whose stories are in this book have got it, baby! They are successful, beautiful, giving, inspiring, and exude womanhood more than any generation before them. They are sassy and crass, truthful and funny, and have come into their own with all barrels loaded, cocked, and ready to go.
