This blog is going to be all about my book, When Good Boobs Turn Bad: A Mammoir. I could call it “marketing my personal brand” or “leveraging my platform,” but I’m going to boldly call it exactly what it is, shameless self-promotion. I am shameless—I wrote a frackin’ book! With, like, big words and a theme and things. Not only that-first I had to get through breast cancer just to have a compelling topic!
What, you want me to play the tired cancer card again? Don’t challenge me, because I will whip it out in a heartbeat. I suffered through a major illness…suffered almost as much as everyone else did who had to hear about it. So if you know what’s good for you, you will buy the book, and tell everyone you know to buy the book, and you will tell me repeatedly how much you love the book. Did I mention that it is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and other fine online booksellers? Because I almost certainly mentioned that you can learn more about it at http://jillfoerhirsch.com
I can tell you’re still not convinced, so I’m going to let you in on a little secret. One entire side of my family is populated with seriously excellent, well known authors. Yep, the writing gene runs in my family. Courses through my very veins. So you know how whenever there’s a really amazing restaurant where people have to wait hours to get a table, there’s always a decent restaurant poised and ready to take on the crowds too hungry to wait? That’s me, vis a vis my better known cousins. Sure, I’m not one of the famous Foers, but I’m around, and I’m available, and I try harder because I have to! You guys are a tough crowd.
So, in review:
- Buy my book, because it’s really quite good, or prepare to listen to me whine
- I had cancer, and yet I’m inviting you to have a laugh about it
- The restaurant across the street is now on a two hour wait, and they’ve run out of pagers
