COUNTDOWN AND COUNTING SHEEP
It’s one week from the official publication date of my memoir and in case anyone’s wondering what’s keeping me up at night – no, it’s not wild anticipation. (The process for this publication business takes waaaay too long for anyone to maintain wild anticipation. If there’s someone out there who can stay wildly anticipant for over a year, I’d like to shake your hand.)
What’s keeping me up at night is fear. So I will now share some of the book reviews I hope I never see. And after that, I will take a good long nap, because frankly, I’m exhausted.
“A memoir you’ll want to forget.”
“The real reason Borders is closing.”
“Not meant for human consumption.”
“I’d rather read the phone book.”
“Trees died to print this?”
“This book made me cry. Unfortunately, it’s meant to be funny.”
“I’d rather read the health care bill.”
“If Mr. Simon and Mr. Schuster were alive today – they’d wish they were dead.”
If anyone does happen to stumble across any of these reviews, please – keep ‘em to yourself. Hopefully, I’ll still be napping.

“THE LAST BLIND DATE is a candid and charmingly funny account of love and step-parenting. Linda Yellin’s sympathy, wit, and nerve make her determined forging of a family a success, and this book about it completely winning.”

The Doctor’s Daughter and Summer Reading
“Filled with lots of girl-talk, this memoir will appeal to readers who can’t get enough of the beginning, middle and sweet endings of love stories.”
“Move over, Nora Ephron. There’s a new humorist in town.”
—Sam Apple, The Faster Times
“A valentine for optimism, risk-taking, and love itself.”
—Sally Koslow, author of With Friends Like These
