Released on March 22, the book is an anthology featuring essays by some of the country’s top mommy bloggers, including Burke, the author/owner of “Keeper of The Fruit Loops” blog.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and interact with Burke, who will be reading from one of her not-yet-published blog posts and signing copies of “I Just Want to Be Alone,” available for purchase on-site that evening for $12 (cash only).
Burke, a self-described “Erma Bombeck Martha Stewart with a Roseanne twist,” finds herself in good company as she makes her writing debut. "I Just Want to Be Alone" is the second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series. Burke's co-authors include Jen of People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Karen Alpert, A.K. Turner, Kim Bongiorno, and parenting writer-turned-mommy blogger Deva Dalporto, whose video parody of “Let it Go,” from Disney’s Frozen, went viral last month.
Amazon reader reviews of "I Just Want to Be Alone" include,
"Guaranteed to make you laugh and have at least one story you see yourself and your husband in. It's so easy to relate to these very real women.-- Stephanie of Binkies and Briefcases
An absolutley hilarious collection of essays that remind us we're all in the same circus - just different tents.
An amazing group of writers pooled together to share stories about relationships. In every one (seriously - every. one.) I found myself laughing out loud (as in an actual audible guffaw, not the typical "lol" we see bandied abut so often). The point is, we can all relate." -- TCStream
