Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
It’s a Boy – the blog book tour

One comment

To kick off the publication of my latest book It's a Boy, I'm launching a web-based book tour: the Blog Book Tour. With 50 bloggers participating, it looks to be a new and enjoyable alternative to hanging out in bookstores in random cities hoping to entice people to let me sign their books. Which is something I'll still be doing -- an actual physical book tour in January, to promote both Boy and the Literary Mama anthology, is in the works. But for now, I'm just touring the blogosphere, thanks to the interest and generosity of the excellent parenting bloggers who have agreed to participate.

Today Tertia at So Close blogged about her thoughts on the book and on raising her boy and girl twins; Katie Granju, a contributor to the Boy book, blogged about the book at her blog The Pop Culturephile and her personal blog as well. And I wrote about it a bit at Mother Shock and included the Introduction.

Tomorrow Jay Allen at The Zero Boss and Blogging Baby will be writing about the book, and at my own blog I'll be blogging about the first essay in the book, "Expectations," by Stephany Aulenback, late of this blog. The word on the street is that she'll be returning to blogging for Literary Mama soon! Until then, you'll have to content yourselves with the very small excerpt and Q&A that will appear on my site tomorrow.


Andrea J. Buchanan is a writer living in Philadelphia. In addition to her latest book, The Double-Daring Book For Girls (HarperCollins), she is the author of the New York Times bestselling The Daring Book For Girls, The Pocket Daring Book For Girls: Things To Do, and The Pocket Daring Book For Girls: Wisdom and Wonder along with Miriam Peskowitz. She is also the author of Mother Shock: Loving Every (Other) Minute of It (Seal Press) and the editor of three anthologies: It’s a Boy: Women Writers on Raising Sons; Literary Mama: Reading for the Maternally Inclined; and It’s a Girl: Women Writers on Raising Daughters (all from Seal Press). Before becoming a writer, Andi was a classical pianist; she studied at the Boston Conservatory of Music, where she earned her bachelor of music degree, and continued her graduate studies at the San Francisco Conservatory, earning a master’s degree in piano performance. Her last recital was at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. She is the mother of a daughter and a son, both of whom are equally daring.
