Clash of the Couples, aka, I’m going to be in a book!

Clash of the Couples2-01Now, before you think Clash of the Couples is about sex, let me explain.  A few months ago, I saw a call for submissions on the website of Blue Lobster Book Co., asking for stories about your funniest spats or most absurd fights.  The desire was create a funny, light-hearted anthology proving that couples fight about more than just kids, money and sex.  “Perfect,” I thought.  “Mark I fight about everything!”  Including math.  So I wrote up our never-ending fight about calculus, submitted it and, within two weeks, heard that my story was accepted!

I’ve not yet gotten a chance to read the other 42 fearless contributions to Clash of the Couples – like “I Can’t Believe You Ate My Sandwich,” “Never Assume Anything” and “Only I Can Talk About Me” – but I’m so looking forward to it even as I am left scratching my head as to how my little work came to be compiled with theirs!  The book launches on Monday, November 3rd and will be available at places like Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other places you can typically get books.  If you want to follow along for the countdown, read hilarious excerpts and just generally join the hype, check out the books’ Facebook page.

And now, for the people who made all this possible – the writers!
