Hey, it’s a non-crappy BOOK giveaway!
This time it is The Good Mother Myth: Redefining Motherhood to Fit Reality which is a collection of essays written by a diverse group of mothers that just came out this week. Check out all of the contributors. Pssst – I’m one of them!
Some of the essays are heartfelt and sincere and soul-wrenching. Some of them are funny. Some of them are confessions. Some of them have an agenda. Some of them will have you nodding and thinking, “thank goodness I’m not the only one who has had dark moments like that” and some of them will rub you in all the wrong ways. But that is why this book is great. It stretches your definition of ‘good mother’ and it makes you think.
Can a good mother smoke pot? How many times can a mother drop her child on his/her head and still be a good mother? What about a mother who struggles with depression? What about a mother who lives in a different state from her child? What about a mother who obsessively compares herself to another mother she once saw at Trader Joe’s? Just like that old spaghetti sauce commercial, it’s in there.
(PS – that last essay I mentioned that sounds annoying? The one about the obsessed mother comparing herself to someone at Trader Joe’s? That one is mine. I don’t think I actually specified that it was at Trader Joe’s in the essay so now you have, like, insider information and stuff.)
Get to the point! Here it is…
I was given two author copies and I’m giving one away! And it will be SIGNED. By me. Not by everyone. I’ll probably also draw a picture in it somewhere because I can. So there’s that.
This is shipping straight from me and I’m happy to ship anywhere in the world if you win.
