Perfect Mother’s Day Present—Mom needs it and so do you!

Good news! For Mother’s Day, you can get Mom her own paperback copy of Life Begins When The Kids Leave Home And The Dog Dies at the special sale price of $5.10/£4.23 and also download a Kindle copy for yourself TOTALLY FREE!

But you need to hurry. This sale only lasts five days, until May 7th.

“Don’t bother me unless there’s blood. Or smoke. Or LOTS of water…” —Mom, reading Life Begins When The Kids Leave Home And The Dog Dies.

Chapter 1. A California girl named Barb met her prince of a guy. He was tall, dark, and handsome. (Actually, he was a Republican. But he was definitely tall.) They fell in love, and got married.

Chapter 2. He brought her to his castle in England and they lived happily ever after. THE END**

**Luckily, 35+ years of living happened between Chapters 1 and 2, giving Barb plenty of material for this collection (in no particular chronological order) from her newspaper columns, articles, blog posts, and that time she killed Mom. 

And that’s before Chapter 3 even starts.

I have learned to put down the coffee and place breakable objects at a safe distance when a post from Barb Taub comes up. It is very hard to drink coffee and laugh at the same time without redecorating the desk…—author Sue Vincent

Reviewers are saying:

5 star reviews

Anecdotes that beg to be read. You could read it in one go (has anyone ever actually died laughing?) or keep dipping in and out. It lends itself to either. But whichever you choose, eating and/or drinking while reading is not advised, as several people have found to their (and their appliances’) costs.”—CathyR for Between The Lines Book Reviews

Top Stuff! This is a collection of articles, all with a family theme, from Barb’s own childhood, about her parents and siblings, and about her own children and family life. Later, she touches upon death, and writing….they are all really, really funny. I read a lot of PJ O’Rourke, and Barb Taub’s style reminds me of his lighter, more domestically-orientated pieces. The off-the-wall snark’s all there.“—Terry Tyler, Author of Project Renova series

Prepare to be entertained! With her quick-witted sparky humour I’ve learned that when one of Barb’s posts arrive in my inbox I have to put all else aside (including any liquids, I’ll say no more!) and buckle up for what I’m about to read. Get this book and prepare to be entertained, you can thank me later.” —Georgia Rose, Author of The Grayson Trilogy

This book needs to come with a humor warning! This book needs to come with a warning: ‘Caution: Do Not Eat Or Drink While Reading This Book! You will spew food or liquid everywhere when you laugh out loud.’ Every chapter will have you laughing at Barb’s unique take on life.”—Kassandra Lamb, Author of Kate Huntingdon Mysteries

Snorting good fun… There are a very few books I have read that have the ability to force me to snort my tea whilst (noticed I used whilst) enjoying my morning cuppa. I should sue for cleaning but I was having too much fun. This rollicking escapade had me in stitches one minute and pondering the next. I could see my own childhood through their eyes and I was touched. As soon as I finished the book I wanted to read it again. I am sure this will become a well thumbed volume. Figuratively speaking. Thanks Barb, great read!”—Author P E Read

I would love to hear what you think of this book!
