Clash of the Couples Coming Soon!

Clash of the Couples Remember how I said I was funny?  I know I don’t show my funny side much here in this blog, and I explained it a while ago…  HERE.  Well, I was offered the opportunity to BE FUNNY!!  Actually, I like to think of it as sharing my expertise on how to communicate with your man.  Oh friends, do I have some good insights for you!  Everyone will be able to read it in the upcoming  “Clash of the Couples”!  This book is the new anthology of some hilarious writers sharing their own experiences of those ‘moments’ where there is a bit of conflict, a clash so to say- with the opposite sex.  It happens.  Right?  I am THRILLED to be a part of this book and cannot WAIT until it is launched on November 3rd for all the world to see!  There are some amazing bloggers and brilliant writers sharing their own unique and hilarious stories to entertain you and perhaps you may be able to relate to many if not all of the pieces in this humorous book.   Check it OUT!

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!

      • says

        Aww, Chris not bad to ask and give me idea of when it would need to be done for, as I just signed up for Class Mom at Emma’s school, so I am trying to keep up with all and would try my best as long as I have some advance notice. But for you I would try my best 😉

        • says

          You are SUCH A DEAR to EVEN consider it Janine!! 🙂 The book comes out early November… and as far as I’m concerned, you have all the time you need!! (We’ll leave it open and I will give you a holler when the book is out- and you can decide then?)

      Oh YOU!!!!!!! So THIS IS when you show up. Ah… hey, I think we need a mandatory marriage meeting to talk this through, yes? 😉

      Never anything bad, love. Just a much needed educational piece. lol (XO)

  1. says

    Love that this is listed under “Marriage encouragement”! Pleased to meet you and be in this book with you too! Can’t wait to read your essay!

    • says

      Ain’t that ironic about “Marriage encouragement?” LOL! Well, I consider my piece more of a tutorial. Maybe you will understand… but possibly not Andy! Will see… 😉

  2. says

    I can’t wait to read this book from cover to cover. Looking forward to your story, Chris. You always crack me up.

    I also love the fact that Derek’s comment is above mine as I type this. So funny. Did he not get to approve it?!

    • says

      I can’t wait to read the book and all the other pieces too!! Derek- that goofball! He was jut messing with me. I DID read it to him… and he was a bit offended and gasped at times and then smiled- cause he KNOWS I’m right!! lol Poor guy. But he’s a good sport!

  3. says

    I’m thrilled to be a part of this book with you and all of the other amazing writers. It will be FUN to read everyone’s essays. I can just see myself reading the entire book in one sitting as soon I as get my hands on it :).

    • says

      Me TOO Chris!!! Me TOO!! I think that’s the best part about being a in a book with other writers… the joy of connecting and learning more about everyone else. LOVE that. 🙂

  4. says

    Oh, I don’t know Chris. I think you’re plenty hilarious and awesome all at once!
    I can’t wait to read this.
    Derek’s comment is cracking me up. I do hear how you talk about him, and I do know how lovely you are and how lucky he is to be married to you so I imagine your story will be plenty awesome for me to read.

    • says

      Well, lets hope you can laugh with me through my piece Dana!! I sure got a kick out of my contribution! lol 😉 I have a good feeling lots of women will relate to what I wrote!

    • says

      I agree Katy!! I great group of writers indeed! I don’t know many of them… so it’s always so cool to get to know them better through a BOOK! 🙂

  5. says

    Congrats Chris! This book sounds so great – definitely something I’d like to read. My hubby and I sometimes fight about the most ridiculous things! Can’t wait to read it!

    • says

      Thanks hun!! I can’t wait to read the other contributor’s pieces!! Wanna do a review? Hell, why not just ask here? Life’s too short, remember? 😉 (I mean I am replying to comments from how far back? lol)

  6. says

    I’ve heard about this from other bloggers — congrats on being included! I can’t wait to read this. I think having these little “spats” is healthy most times — because it’s never really just about the cap of the toothpaste. as long as we are respectful — or, repentant if necessary. looking forward to it.

    • says

      I am looking forward to reading everyone else’s contributions!! It’s such a fun topic to write about. At first I really didn’t want to share anything that would portray my man negatively… because that doesn’t honor him or our marriage! But then I had an idea… 😉

      You’ll see. 🙂

    • says

      I think that is the best thing that comes out of doing an anthology with other writers Jodi! The connections are AWESOME! I’m so excited to develop lasting friendships with you and the other bloggers I don’t know yet!! YAY! 🙂
