Author Picks

Pimp my friends… the holiday edition!

Did you get gift cards for Christmas? Cash in your stocking? Bookstore vouchers? Wondering how to spend those? I got your back!

During December, I ran around social media asking all my author friends and followers this question:

“Which one of your books should someone experience? Not what’s new. Not what’s on sale. But if they could only have one of your books, which would you tell them was essential to their library?”

The following is their answers, aka, a lovely little shopping list for you!!

Body Shaming | Buttercup of Doom ep 29

BODep29-bodyshamingAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

Fat, thin, athletic, frail, healthy, chubby, skinny, chunky, fit—bodies come in a variety of shapes… This week we look at body types in characters for the 101, how comedians deal with it in the smile-section, and then dive into the current trend in society—from the playground to the media—to belittle everyone around us and/or elevate ourselves by pointing out we’re not them. Yup, there’s some language. Get your earbuds out for this one.
