Writer, comedienne, and full-time Blonde, Selena Coppock offers up adventures, misadventures, and golden-hued nuggets of wisdom in a laugh-out-loud anthem for those of us who really do have more fun. . . . The modern blonde is savvy, wise, confident, capable, and not afraid to laugh at herself when the occasion calls for it. She knows who she is and is prepared to subvert all stereotypes (although she's not above wielding her golden tresses to her advantage), and knows how to be both classy and a little brassy. In the way only a Boston-bred New Yorker who once won "Best Hair" in her high school graduating class could, Coppock doles out tongue-in-cheek advice about avoiding hair disasters, the consequences of dating a man who cares a little too much about his own hair product, and so much more in an outrageous essay collection that will have even the staunchest of raven-haired beauties considering a trip to the nearest salon.

The mainstream humor debut of Edie Claire, author of the USA-Today bestselling Leigh Koslow mystery series! A professional woman’s mind is a terrible thing to waste. With two kids, a mortgage, and a husband who’s about to lose his job, the last thing Karen Robertson needs is to get fired from her own. Ordinarily, she enjoys her work in the Communications Department of Zomar Industries, where she, Darcy, Whitney, and Luba click on keyboards all day in a friendly four-station cubicle nicknamed “The Blonde Pod.” But management happens. Counting time spent in a pediatrician’s waiting room as vacation is bad. Switching the company’s entire database of office supply products into an untested new software program is worse. But when younger and sexier hotshot Morgan Bessel gets mysteriously promoted, then secretly sets out to lay off some of Zomar’s most senior and beloved employees, the blondes decide it’s time to “provide solutions.” Can Karen help it if a certain highly sensitive tidbit of information just happens to fall onto her desktop? Is a little blackmail between co-workers really so wrong? With both her work life and her home life threatening to crash down around her, Karen struggles to choose between what she knows is right... and what sounds like a hell of a lot more fun. Originally entitled "Work, Blondes. Work!"

The appeal of the uncertain and the freedom to do whatever she is in the mood for eventually lead to a liberating motto: "Just be yourself!"

Category: Biography & Autobiography
After watching too many family members die of cancer, at age 28, public speaker and comedian Caitlin Brodnick was tested for the BRCA1 gene mutation and tested positive, indicating an 87% chance she'd likely be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. She had a preventative double mastectomy, thereby becoming an everywoman's Angelina Jolie. Dangerous Boobies: Breaking Up with My Time-Bomb Breasts goes in depth into her experience from testing to surgery and on to recovery. With a warm, funny, and approachable voice, Caitlin tells readers the full story, even sharing what it was like to go from a size 32G bra -- giant, for a woman who is barely over five feet tall! -- to a 32C. Engaging and open, she admits to having hated her breasts long before her surgery, and enjoying the process of "designing" her new breasts, from the shape of the breasts to the size and color of the nipples. While Caitlin's primary narrative explores the BRCA gene and breast cancer, her story is also one about body acceptance and what it takes to be confident with and in charge of one's body. Her speaking engagements and comedy routines have shown that the wider topic of breasts, breast size, and personal identity is resonating with younger readers.
