I was pleased as punch to see a great piece on Mama’s Big Book of Little Lifesavers in the Chicago Tribune today–and I love the tips she included! Check out the article here.

Also, if you’re in Seattle, I hope you’ll stop by my event on Thursday, May 19, from 3:30-5:30pm at Twirl Cafe on Queen Anne Avenue, brought to you by Queen Anne Books. Kids can play for free in their awesome play space, and mamas can enjoy some drink specials. Win-win! Oh, and I’ll be signing books, too. More info can be found here.

Thanks for your support!

It’s Mom’s Day week and my new book, Mama’s Big Book of Little Lifesavers,  is on the shelves coast to coast! Here’s hoping it helps moms everywhere find some new time-savers, money-savers, or (perhaps most important) sanity-savers. I’ve always wanted a cheat sheet from other moms, a chance to sneak a peek into their houses to figure out what works for them–and what doesn’t. This book comes pretty close to that goal. Moms from all over the country told me what makes their lives just a little bit easier, and I’ve wrapped it all up into this cute little package (with thanks to Chronicle Books)!

I’d also like to give a big shout-out to my neighborhood indie bookstore, Secret Garden Books, for giving me this awesome window display! If you’re in Seattle, swing by the launch party on May 5 at 7pm.  Bring the kids, have a cupcake, and enter to win free books. Thanks for all the support!

Finally, I’d love to hear from YOU with a little lifesaver that’s making life easier at your house this week. Share it! (You can also share it on Chronicle’s blog to win a free book; click here.)
