The first sequel to the New York Times Bestseller Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure hit shelves this week, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Celebrating the warm and fuzzy and cold and hard and bitter and sweet and euphoric and torturous world of the hopelessly romantic heart, this one’s called Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak: by Writers Famous & Obscure. I just learned the other night that I’m fortunate to be part of this book as well, in the centerfold, appropriately on a very black Page 61. This memoir’s brand new, but not necessarily unrelated to the first one.
Our new book’s packed with telling stories from both sides of the love coin, from writers you both know and have never heard of. Like:
A kiss can write a secret.
— Annmarie Howell
It never hurt as good again.
— Marc Ecko
Butterflies still kicking after ten years.
— Lisa Taylor
People can’t want what they want.
— Dr. Drew Pinsky
Will always follow you. On Twitter.
— Mircea Lungu
May I have the last dance?
— Robert Hass
Here we go again. The next several weeks will be eventful, with lots of blogging and tweeting going on, along with a book tour. Scheduled stops will include Denver, San Francisco, Portland, Boston, Chicago, and a very special slam in New York on Valentine’s Day. Party hearty! Check out the official Six-Word Memoirs site for more info. Web socialites can also join our Facebook group, and enjoy a piece of six-word love each day on Twitter until Valentine’s Day.
So there it is. Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak: by Writers Famous & Obscure, now available at fine bookstores everywhere. Pick it up at Amazon and share it with someone you love.
