What kind of book sells out four days after it's put up at Amazon?
Who gets front and back cover blurbs from wildly funny TheBloggess, Jenny McCarthy, and Suzy Soro --saying that this book is "laugh out loud funny?"
That would be Rodney LaCroix. The 5ft3 powerhouse hero of the average man whom bank tellers call Lollipops. He writes of his typical life; being divorced, trying to date, doing his best to be a good father. Just life of the average Joe in America--which is exactly what makes what Rodney writes some of the funniest things I've read.
When I first began blogging, there was a collective humor site--it was great. It was called LOL, and you submitted your own what you thought to be your best stuff. If it was good and brought out a few chuckles, it went up. After blogging for about two months, I decided to take my destiny into my hands, and sent in a piece inspired by late night viewing of the Ten Commandments. Moses Moses Moses. Nefretiri Nefretiri Nefretiri.
I clicked over to the LOL site for submission information, and Rodney was there. My man had a post up that made me light headed from laughing. I had my two teens read with me, they were gasping from laughing so hard. It was a childhood story of an adorable chubby ten-year-old boy's adventure pursuing the girl of his dreams. On his banana seat high handle-barred bike.
To this day, one of the best cures for winter blues. And that's how I met Rodney.
His first book is out now and I am so proud of him. He's a genuinely nice guy and has made me laugh these past three years that I've known him.
So I'm here hawking his book for him, because Rodney is that kind of special to me.
For a taste of Rodney's best, read here, and this one is gold too.
Or do what I did, order his book "Things Go Wrong For Me." ($2.99 on Kindle) Best thing to keep in your car or night stand or your purse that looks like a cute mini backpack.
For all the information, and an autographed copy, go here.
Follow Rodney at his blog, midget man of steel. [because he is]
He's a gas on twitter.
His Facebook is pretty cool too. 

Got a few minutes to laugh? Watch his book trailer. (also feel better about yourself too)

Congrats, Lollipops, you know I love you. Thanks for always making me laugh.

  1. Thank you, Empress. Your words to me kept me going blogging when I was considering packing it in. And now look. This book is just as much YOUR success as it is mine.

    Can't thank you enough.
