dailydishonesty:I am SO excited to officially announce that the Daily Dishonesty book is coming out in Fall 2014!
"Daily Dishonesty pays homage to the little lies we tell ourselves just to make it through the day. Based on author Lauren Hom’s work from the blog of the same title, the book features a colorful collection of 150+ funny & beautifully illustrated lies. Covering topics such as diets, breakups, friendship, growing up, slacking off, guilty pleasures, and more, these hand-lettered, sassy mantras are both relatable and tongue-in-cheek. Daily Dishonesty is a stylish and chic feel-good gift book that reveals, plays with, and makes light of life’s little quirks.”
As always, thank you for all the love, laughs, and support over the past year. This blog and book wouldn’t have been possible without my lovely friends (aka my muses), family, and followers. My parents taught me that I should always tell the truth, but I guess I found a way to prove them wrong. They also told me that I have to put on pants every day…
Keep an eye out for this little blue book in stores later in the year!

!!! For Every Book Pre-Ordered, We Will Donate A Copy To A PFLAG Chapter !!!

SOMETHING AWESOME IS HAPPENING.

We recently talked to the lovely human beings at Chronicle Books (our book’s publisher), and explained how important we felt it was to get This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids in the hands of people who need it most: parents of LGBTQ kids (duh).

Chronicle agreed with us, and so through September 8th, every single pre-order for This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids will be matched with a book donated to a local PFLAG Chapter!!!!

All you need to do is this:

1. Pre-order your copy
2. Go to this link to make sure your pre-order is matched!!

TADA! If you’ve already pre-ordered, you can still let Chronicle know and ensure that you are getting a copy donated.

This is pretty amazing.
Please share far & wide!!

xoxoxo

This is a fantastic feminist prep school prank-war novel, if that sounds like your kind of thing…
