It’s almost showtime.

Sorry, we’re not talking Christmas, we’re talking book release–just ten more days! Like little kids who can’t wait to open our wrapped presents, we just can’t wait to share our book.  So we’re going to give you a little sneak preview as we head toward December 29th. Besides, doesn’t a little teasing makes everything so much more delicious?

Chapter  1

Shopping Out of the Apocalypse

Bitches, we’re going to let you in on a little secret: Women might only make $.78 for every $1 men make, but we’re the ones who drive the economy.  We’re the ones who decide what to buy and when to buy it. You think we’re kidding? Just turn on the television.  It’s talking to you, bitch.  And even when it’s not—Rogaine and boner pills—it’s still about you.

Forget free market capitalism. Estrogen drives GDP. And, as with most things, only we can fix this mess. So it’s time for us to stand up straight, toss our hair back, and do what we do best—stimulate this economy.

Believe in Looks, Not Labels!

While it’s your patriotic duty to keep the economy stimulated, it’s your civic duty to cast off the outdated, more-is-better style of the nineties and aughts.  No modern bitch wants a big footprint.  Yes, it’s time to get America moving. It’s also time to throw out the ostentatious ($2,000 Chanel boots), the excessive ($20,000 Hermes Birkin), the ridiculous (Paris Hilton clothing).  It’s time to buy and spend wisely.

Bitches on a Budget is being published by the New American Library division of Penguin Books. Ask your bookseller when they’ll be putting it out on their shelves!
