Fortunately for me, I have the opportunity to work with some amazing people who I might not otherwise have met in life had I not been hired to help them with their books. In February, I have two books out that I worked on with some pretty cool women. One is a memoir by Patricia Velasquez. She’s an actress, an activist, a supermodel, a mom, a business woman and a super-soulful, insightful person. I loved every second working with her. She’s a terrific story teller and has one of the best memories for detail of anyone I’ve collaborated with in the past. She was a true pleasure to work with and has become someone I now consider a friend (a total bonus to my line of work–making friends with cool people!) Her book is called Straight Walk and it’s out on February 10th. On the same day, We’re Just Not That Into YOU comes out as well. It’s a collection of dating disasters written by Dancing with the Stars Pro Karina Smirnoff and her manager and bestie Lindsay Rielly. These women have kissed a lot of frogs and they’re still laughing about it. This book was a blast to work on mostly because these women and their friends are bitingly, painfully funny. Their stories are hilarious and I was laughing most of the time I was working on this book. I hope one or both of these books makes it into your reading pile this month. Neither will disappoint.
