American Title III Winner "Sleeping with Ward Cleaver" Hits the Shelves!

It's here! It's here! Jenny Gardiner's "Sleeping with Ward Cleaver," winner of the American Title III contest, is out! (Or rather, will be out VERY soon!) I can't tell you how happy I am to help my ATIII sister help launch her debut novel. Isn't that the cutest cover? Love it! So fun and bright, just like Jenny. And inside, you'll find some fantastic writing. I've read an excerpt and Oh. My. God. It was as hysterical as it was dead-on truthful. I won't give details, but the scene I read involved *relations* between a less than enthusiastic woman and her husband. Come on, girls, we've ALL been there.

But I'm not, and won't be, the only one who loves it:

SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER, Dorchester, 2008. The funny yet poignant story of a woman at a crossroads in life, who years earlier married a man who swept her off her feet, but now finds that her Mr. Right has evolved into Mr. Always Right, and the only sweeping going on in her life involves a broom and a dustpan. As her dreams collide with reality and the one that got away shows up trying to worm his way back into her heart, she must decide if her once charmed marriage is salvageable, and if so, how she's going to go about saving it.
A fun, sassy read! A cross between Erma Bombeck and Candace Bushnell, reading Jenny Gardiner is like sinking your teeth into a big frosted chocolate cupcake...you just want more.
-author Meg Cabot

With a story setup like that, with an endorsement like that, how can you not want to read this?!

So all this week, Jenny is doing a Blog Book Tour. (A lot cheaper and easier on the body than a real one, I'm sure.) Go on over to these sites/blogs to see what she has to say and what others are saying about her and "Ward." I can assure you it's all good.

Now, go buy "Sleeping with Ward Cleaver"! That's where I'm headed.
