Ladies and gentlemen: we have a book deal.

I am more than a little excited to announce the following bit of news:

In the fall of 2010 (probably), St. Martin's Press will be publishing LET'S PANIC ABOUT BABIES!: How To Endure and Possibly Triumph over the Adorable Interloper Who Will Ruin Your Body, Destroy Your Life, Melt Your Brain, and Finally Turn You into a Worthwhile Human Being

(Actually, that's the entire book. There you go!)

The book will, naturally, be written by Eden Marriott Kennedy and myself.

If you're wondering, "Hey. Didn't Eden and Alice just launch that website? How did this happen so quickly for them?" Well. Let us assure you, reader, that the journey that led to this extraordinarily happy place was so long and circuitous and frustration-plagued that if I shared the entire story with you, you would fall to the ground in horror. And then you may never walk again.

It's true. Eden's legs don't work anymore. Those things she walks on? Pogo sticks strapped to her withered gams, the whole shebang hidden under her Man Jeans.

I was the lucky one. I only lost my ability to feel, and love.

But enough of our sorrow! We have a book to write, people. And oh, it's going to be funny. That we can promise. Funny, and long, and a bitch to write. But mostly funny. We can't wait to show you.

Fantastic!!! I'm so excited for you. My two cents: include your labor and delivery story -- funniest account of that blessed event I've ever read. Moooo!

Congratulations! My co-author and I, you and your co-author...we could talk! We're on our second book and it IS a lot of work and a lot of it happens after the book comes out. You are definitely many steps ahead by having such a great blog with a great following! All best!

Congratulations, only please don't leave out the part about destroying your financial security. Those babies are not as innocent as they look...

Two fucktastic women writing one "spit milk (or in my case, vodka) out your nostrils" funny book! I am going to sit a little too comfortably on Santa's lap and ask him to bring it to me wrapped in Brown Derby gift cards. No, but seriously, so excited for you! But then again not excited for you because it's going to be hell to write. Oh hell, what do I know about writing? I just made up a word in the first sentence of this comment.

Congratulations!! That's so exciting! It's about bloody time. And even though I'll probably never have children, I can't wait to buy my copy.

So awesome! Congratulations!

This is SO AWESOME! Only one thing. Can you publish it in the next 7 weeks instead? Because I'm all about panicking in advance of my Dec. 15th due date, and while the website is and has been great, I can only imagine the wealth of insight your whole book will have. BTW, will it have pictures? The pictures are also important.

Oh congratulations to both of you! I have to admit that while I was enjoying the heck out of the website, I thought what a pity that it couldn't be a paying job to be THAT FUNNY. I'm so glad to hear that it's going to be!

Yay! Congratulations! With the humor and brainpower of you and Mrs. Kennedy it should be one good read. (And I'm DONE having babies, so that's really saying something.)
October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMeegan
I can't wait to read it!

When you said in a previous post that you had some good news but couldn't say what, I thought it might be something to do with a book :PCongrats! I shall certainly look out for it (despite being a single male with zero kids) as I love that site as well as this one :D

Congrats Alice!

You are all kinds of awesome, so I'm glad that others recognize it too!
