Book Giveaway: Things You'll Only Hear From Your Friends

In the Powder Room has been entertaining women online since 2009 with the funniest and most irreverent articles, written by the very best women writers. When you're In The Powder Room, you can have a laugh, share your opinions, and enjoy lively discussion from some of the most clever commenters you'll read.

I've been a big fan of ITPR's editor-in-chief, Leslie Marinelli, who is the author of the award winning and hilarious blog The Beareded Iris, for years. When I heard Leslie was compiling an anthology of "stories you'd whisper to your best friends, leaning over to tell them 'You've got lipstick on your teeth," I knew I had to give it a shot and send something her way.

I'm excited to say that "You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth," In the Powder Room's first anthology, has just been released; a collection of 39 stories of hilarious, embarrassing, and often poignant moments by some of today's most talented female bloggers, and today it sits on Amazon's Top 20 list of Amazon's best sellers for humorous essays. My piece, "Jungle Moves," is included in this best seller that shot up to number one on Amazon on its first day.

You can order your copy of YHLOYT for kindle (4.99) or paperback (8.99), but for fun, today I'm giving away a copy here. 

Leave a comment to win, tweet it out, or Facebook it. Just let me know in the comments below. Giveaway will be open until next week Saturday.

"You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth is 39 stories of hilarious, embarrassing and often poignant moments by some of today's most talented female bloggers. Thank God for girlfriends and shared visits to powder rooms! That’s always been the concept behind the website where we’ve been entertaining women with our humor and bold, brave honesty since 2009. Now we’re taking it to the next level with an anthology of original short stories from some of the wittiest women writers we know—stories they would only tell their closest friends, most likely from within the haven of a ladies’ room. Inside you’ll find 39 true tales by women, for women, about being women—bodily changes, relationships, careers, motherhood, aging, illness, and more—written with the humor and grit that proudly sets In The Powder Room apart. But be forewarned: we’re holding nothing back. We’re revealing our deep dark secrets..."

Good Luck!
