Inkwater Press is excited to be publishing Stephanie Snowe’s debut work, tentatively titled It’s Not You, It’s Your Mom: The Romantic Misadventures of a Southern Belle. Ms. Snowe describes the book as “a humorous look at the world of internet dating and all the perils and pitfalls that come along with looking for love after Prince Charming turns out to be a frog.”
Here’s a seasonal sneak preview of It’s Not You, It’s Your Mom: The Romantic Misadventures of a Southern Belle, just in time for Thanksgiving. The following excerpt appears just after the sudden departure of Ms. Snowe’s first husband.
“Oddly enough, I didn’t miss him. Not really. When he left me, it was hard at first. Good Lord was it hard. The announcement was made on Thanksgiving morning and I then had to sit through a family dinner and pretend that nothing was wrong while I was dying inside. Dying. If anyone ever deserved an Academy Award for their performance it wasn’t some two-bit actress with a cocaine problem and an undeserved sense of self-importance. It was me. And the worst part? I didn’t even get any pecan pie that day. Not even one piece. And I freaking love pecan pie.”
From all of us here at Inkwater Press, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving, and a slice of your preferred pie.
