Self-made Marketing Maven Chronicles the Misadventures of Daily Life in Entertaining New Book
Manassas, VA, July 23, 2013 – We’ve all had that “uh-oh” moment of wishing we could take back a comment that somehow escaped through the filter between our brains and our mouths. Kelly Harman chronicles her uh-oh moments in her newly released book, Did I Say That Out Loud?, a tell-all account of the author’s misadventures in daily life.
In her book, Kelly combines her everyday moments with the vast experiences that comprise her life story, ranging from celebrating her ninth birthday at India’s Taj Mahal to being evacuated with her family in the midst of a civil war in East Pakistan, single motherhood to serial entrepreneur, and Burning Man devotee to self-made marketing maven. Told in the tone of a coffee-klatch gathering with your best girlfriends—you know, the ones who you can share anything and everything with—the author holds nothing back as she recounts the trials and tribulations of her life.
“The concept for the book originated in 2009 when I launched a blog with the same name; the idea was to share my experiences and give my friends a good laugh,” said Kelly. “We all need a break from the daily grind and my friends and family always found entertainment in the crazy moments that make up my life. The book idea was always in the back of my head, but became a reality a few months ago when I left my then-employer and went back into freelance consulting.”
In her new book, Kelly captures those “you can’t make this stuff up” dramas and takes them one step further. She shows us that by reveling in the inevitable mess of the moments we wish we could take back, we may discover that sharing our stories is in fact healing, unifying, and often outrageously funny. For example:
· Thinking of braving Botox or plastic surgery? Get the real scoop from Kelly, including pre-procedure husband prep.
· Need help when your cat catches on fire? Ask Kelly how to extinguish the flames without spilling your wine.
· Want survival tips for when a 300‒pound man falls on you? Ask Kelly, who lived to tell the tale.
Bad for the laugh lines but good for the abs, some of these stories will hit close to home, others will stray far, far from your average woman on the street. But all are unified by the inimitable candor and hilarity that her friends agree is uniquely Kelly.
