What I Learned at My Book Launch Party


My book is teaching in ways I didn't expect.

The book launch party for The Spinsterlicious Life: 20 Life Lessons for Living Happily Single and Childfree was held last Thursday in New York City. It was wonderful in every way: beautiful venue, good food and drink, and a really good vibe with 75 of my favorite people. I was very happy.

It was held at Blondie's Treehouse, a floral design shop. I wanted a location that was different from your typical restaurant party room, and Sara Baerwald was kind enough to let me use her space. What a nice lady.

I'm loving the feedback I'm getting about the book, and there are two comments in particular that make me especially happy, primarily because they were unexpected.

(1) So many people have said "I laughed out loud", which is great because I didn't know I was so funny. But more importantly, I'm happy to hear it's funny because it takes some of the gravitas out of what can be a very heavy subject for lots of single women who are tired of explaining themselves. A lighthearted approach to this should help to communicate that singledom shouldn't be a big deal, and it paves the way for a friendlier dialogue.
