Oh mygod there are a lot of announcements this week! The Mommy Shorts Show is back, Extraordinary Families is launching and now I can officially tell you that I’ll be going on a book tour this fall right after the September 27th release of The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting!!!

I wasn’t sure it was going to happen but then Plum Organics stepped in as a sponsor and it all grew from there!

The tour is still evolving but I wanted to give you the confirmed cities and dates now.

All bookstore locations will include a Plum Organics gift bag.

Plum Organics has been a longtime supporter of mine thanks to their #ParentingUnfiltered campaign which I stand behind 100%. We both believe there is great value (as well as great relief!) in knowing everyone goes through many of the same struggles when becoming a new mom or dad, no matter how perfect we try to make it all look on Instagram.

That’s what my book is all about. Laying it all out there, but not in a bad I hate my kids kind of way. I prefer to think that one adorable photo of your baby’s epic hair is worth five diaper blowouts on a plane.


Okay, maybe no more than four.

I am so excited for this tour and I hope you all will come out, say hi, have a laugh, listen to a reading, get a book signed and let me know the faces of the people who have been reading my blog for the past six years!

I will add these tour dates to my official book page and please check back to see if I add more.

Also, now that I’ve got a bunch of the cities nailed down, I am going to begin reaching out to people nearby who said they were interested in hosting me at their book clubs or mom groups. If this is something that you are seriously interested in and your group has purchased copies of the book, email me at If you have a particularly large group who will all be purchasing the book, I may even be able to make a stop that isn’t currently on the tour.

It’s also worth noting that the North Carolina stop is happening because Quail Books got a few requests to have me speak. So please feel free to let your local bookstore know you want to meet me! Even if it doesn’t happen, maybe it will result in them purchasing some copies of the book.

Thank you for the wonderful response I have gotten from you all so far. If you haven’t preordered your book yet, you can do so here. And don’t forget to redeem your proof of purchase for a free remarkably average mug!
