Virtual Book Tour

In November I'll be on a virtual book tour, visiting blogs and talking about Elastic Waistbands, getting published, being an overnight success in only 48 years, and how to entertain people in the unemployment line!

If you'd like me to visit your blog for interviews and question & answer sessions, please post here and we'll schedule a visit!

And remember, if God had intended for us to stay one size, he wouldn't have invented elastic...

Is this blog for you?

Here are a few questions to help you decide if you're a member of the Elastic Waistbands Society.

  • Do you use your exercise bike as a coat rack?

  • Do you count on the slimming effect of wearing black so much that people often ask if you’re headed to a funeral?

  • Have you ever spent an afternoon trying to look “cool” as you search for your car in the mall parking lot?

  • Do you believe that cheesecake and Prozac share many of the same healing qualities?

  • When a form asks for your hair color, do you write Number 186?

  • Have you gotten to that point in life where you realize you’re being nice to people just to be sure you’ve got a crowd at your funeral?

  • Do you think that The Night of the Living Dead is a movie about your job?

  • Have you ever been called “ma’am” by a young man whom you think is “checking you out”?

    Scoring: If you took the time to read this quiz, you're one of us -- a member of the Elastic Waistbands Society!

And that’s okay. Because we’re all in this together…
