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.

Much joy, Alice!! I remember how it felt when I got "the call" from my publisher after sending in a proposal and then hearing nothing for months.

Love your writing style, and your mix of humor and heart. It will be a GREAT book. Just apply your knowledge of birthing children to the birth of this book, and you'll be fine...

Best of luck on the journey!

How awesome! Yay for a Eden and Alice hilarious extravaganza. And I don't even have kids...or the inkling of having a kid. In fact, I only panic at the thought of having kids.

A huge congrats to you both. May it all go smoothly every step of the way - - but if by some crazy chance some parts don't and you ever want to commiserate about the process, I'd love to kvetch with you and Eden.

Wow, Congrats to you and Eden! My family thought I was a little nuts when I saw the mention of the site in Redbook and squealed "OMG! I know them! They are mentioned right here in Redbook and I've met them, you know, for real, at BlogHer! And it calls Eden Alice's COHORT, hahahaha!" And then I was told to go to another room until I could collect myself.

Congrats -- it will be hilarious, I'm sure! Good to see a good book project being greenlighted for a change, rather than just another Cute Overload or LOL cats sequel.
