clash of the couples

So. I’ve got a few rules on this blog, and one of them is that I don’t do cover reveals.


In that case, all bets are off. *wink*

That’s right, my loyal so-and-sos. I’ve had the super good fortune to be included in an upcoming humor anthology called Clash of the Couples: A Humorous Collection of Completely Absurd Lover’s Squabbles and Relationship Spats. It’s funny. It’s racy. It’s sexy. It’s real. And it’s got a cover you aren’t likely to forget:

Clash of the Couples cover reveal

Hot, right? That snake looks like it is doing something seriously interesting. And I mean SERIOUSLY. INTERESTING.


And guys? This book is legit. Like… LEGIT. It has its own press blurb and everything:


Coupledom. Fact or fable, Adam and Eve birthed the perpetual relationship drama as seen on TV today. Despite the serpents, this couple HAD IT MADE. Luxury real estate, lush gardens, and privacy out the yin-yang. Life was glorious until the bare-bottomed babe could no longer resist temptation. Despite her better half’s warnings and threats to sleep in a tree, she tasted the forbidden fruit. One bite of that seductive, juicy contraband and the stage was set for eternity— a nibble that has blossomed into an endless supply of tiny tidbits that divide lovers to this day!

Taking a cue from the naked explorers of authentic sin, Clash of the Couples is a new anthology featuring a collection of completely absurd lovers’ squabbles and relationship spats. Think couples fight over kids, sex, and money? Think again! Furniture, the last beer, and where to store the placenta are what genuinely ignite our feuds. And no argument is off limits. This book has it all!

Inside you’ll find a gut-busting compilation of stories such as: “I Can’t Believe You Ate My Sandwich,” “Never Assume Anything,” “Only I Can Talk About Me,” and “You Want Some College Boobs?” from forty-three fearless writers. Prepare to laugh, roll your eyes, and shiver in suspense. While Eve may have had the first bite, we ate the whole tree. And made pies.

Published by Blue Lobster Book Co., Clash of the Couples launches loudly and obnoxiously on November 3, 2014. You’ll hear us coming, but look for it on Amazon, B&N, Apple, and other places where you typically buy books. For instant updates, follow along on Facebook!

(Hint: It’s not my husband.)

Ending on a serious note: I’m really excited about this book, guys. And I just want to say that if weren’t for the help and support of all my loyal so-and-sos, this silly blog would not have made it so far in just nine months. I appreciate each and every one of your butts.

    Congratulations, you! You know I’m gonna be all over a book that has both you and Foxy in it (and read those pieces first). Thanks for making the cover reveal bigger and clearer than Foxy did, since I, too, was pretty interested in what that snake was up to. And I appreciate the hell out of your butt, girlfriend!

      1. Why yes, yes I am and thanks for the support! I suppose it’s a little, tiny baby step toward starting my own blog. Smargie is what my husband calls me–well, actually it’s usually “Smart Ass Smargie,” when the kids aren’t home. Please pray that I don’t run screaming back into the closet! xoxo

  2. Hi Sarah! I’m trying to stop by the different blogs today to read all the cover reveals. I’m so excited to be a part of it and ‘meet’ you and all of the other writers! This is my first time stopping by your blog. I’ll be sure to check back :).

  3. WOOHOO!!! I’m SO excited about this book and I can’t wait to get to know YOU better Sarah!! Anxious to read your contribution too, lady! I’m sure it will be a HOOT! (Yes, I said the word HOOT. I like it. So yeah…)


  4. Congratulations. You rock. I am SO looking forward to reading this book and all other things you will ever write in the future. The cover is truly unforgettable. I wish I had a snake like that too. Proud to be your so and so!

  5. YAY!!! I’m so excited for you! I can’t wait to read your submission. I just hope it beat the “coffee on the balls” story, because that is the story I judge all your other submissions against.

  6. CONGRATS Princess! I’d say it’s an honor to pop my book cherry with ya, but that sounds seriously WRONG! And we ALL know how prim and proper you are. *falls out of chair laughing*

  7. I am so excited for this book to come out. I actually know several of the contributors and day-uumm they are awesome. If they crack me up in real life then they will have you rolling on the proverbial floor or peeing yourself, or snorting / snorking / spluging / splitting whatever you do when you bust out laughing while drinking something.

    Sarah, I am deadly proud of you. XoXo
