Book Blog Tour Stop - "Fat Is The New 30 - The Sweet Potato Queen's Guide To Coping With (the Crappy Parts of) Life by Jill Conner Browne


I am so proud and privileged to be hosting a book blog tour stop today for Her Majesty, THE Sweet Potato Queen, Jill Conner Browne, as she tours the blogosphere with her new hilarious book, "Fat Is The New 30: The Sweet Potato Queen's Guide to Coping With (The Crappy Parts of) Life."



About The Book:

The Sweet Potato Queens® are back and bawdier than ever in Southern belle extraordinaire Jill Conner Browne’s ninth edition of the hysterical series. Having experienced pretty much ALL of the crappy parts of life, Browne feels it is her duty to render whatever assistance she can to her fellow sufferers — and she does so in her own inimitable fashion.
 
Her father taught her there are very few situations in life that we really and truly cannot change, and it is up to us to figure out how to either make fun OUT of them — or make fun OF them. And fortunately for the rest of us, Browne is well equipped for both. Including the exploits of the Queen contingent and her family, she delivers applicable tidbits like:

* Thinking or talking about watermelon can save any negative situation.

* If you get drunk in Scotland, you can’t have your cow with you.

* When sanity and reason fail, you can always cheerfully resort to ridicule.

* Denial means that every situation is perfectly perfect.

More fun than a Cracker Barrel full of monkeys, Fat Is the New 30 will change your life — or at least give you ideas for making fun of your ownself.



Oh my lawd, where do I start?  If you are down, depressed, or even the tiniest bit melancoly, this is the book for you!  Jill Conner Browne can bring a smile to your face in no time flat with her unique and quirky look on life!  In fact, it's a rule, I think - you cannot be sad reading a "Sweet Potato Queen" book!

Queen Jill covers everything from how to survive life in this horrible economy with a little style and panache, to how to survive raising your teenagers to adulthood (I personally earmarked this section for extra referral!).  Light and snappy, Jennifer brings her legions of followers and fans up to date on her life so far in this bright and happy book.



If you're Southern - you will identify and love it.  If you're not Southern, that's ok, we'll let you read it anyway!  It's just that GOOD!

So grab your best pair of rhinestone sunglasses, and plop a tiara on your head, and be prepared to laugh until you nearly split your sides with this fabulous new book from Her Majesty, THE Sweet Potato Queen, Jill Conner Browne!
