Mindy Roberts has been a Moxie client since the start back in 2003 and we couldn’t be more proud and excited to see the launch of her new book, Mommy Confidential: Adventures from the Wonderbelly of Motherhood. Anyone who has read Mindy’s blog, The Mommy Blog, can tell you that Mindy’s writing is fresh, her entries are hilarious and she’s nothing if not honest!
An excerpt from her official Wonderbelly website (to which Mindy applied her own budding web design talents! woo!):
Wonderbelly was an unintended pregnancy with a years-long gestation. It began as a blog, grew into a book, acquired some friends, and branched out into freelance writing and web design.
And a description from her storefront:
Take a woman fresh out of college, plop her down in Silicon Valley, saddle her with a mortgage, let her ride the tech boom, give her three babies in four years, slap her with the tech bust, watch vicariously as her marriage disintegrates, end her career, and hand her a computer. What do you get? Mommy Confidential: Adventures from the Wonder-belly of Motherhood, a memoir in real time adapted from the wildly popular weblog, The Mommy Blog.
Mommy Confidential is a naked, brutally funny, endearingly honest chronicle of family life beset by disaster on many fronts. Mindy keeps her family together through catastrophic illness, four bouts of postpartum depression, financial peril, relationship Chernobyl, familial Waterloo, and job instability. All through it her sense of humor and her sharp, edgy, witty writing keep her together and upright.
“This is like a circus train wreck. It’s horrifying but I can’t seem to avert my eyes and keep from laughing.” — Lee Walinchus
If you’re a mommy-blogger, if you have kids or even if you can just relate, pick up a copy of Mindy’s book. I’m sure she’ll appreciate it.
Congratulations on your new adventure, Mindy!
