Summer Book Giveaway – Martinis & Motherhood: Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?!

Summer is officially here, according to the calendar, and also judging by the amount of boob sweat I have been experiencing. Who needs a calendar? My kids are done school this week and then will be home for two months, cleaning the house and making me dinner. (If you believe that, then perhaps you have already begun sampling the summertime martini mixes—the only house they plan on cleaning is one they build in Minecraft, and if dinner is left up to them we will be eating granola bars and potato chips every day.)

Martinis & Motherhood: Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?! by Tara Wilson and Shannon Day

Shannon Day of Martinis & Motherhood and I have launched the book we have been working on creating through the winter months, knowing it would be patio weather before we knew it. Just in time for summer beach reading and poolside sipping, we are thrilled to present Martinis & Motherhood: Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?! It is a collection of touching, hilarious, and unforgettable stories from 37 authors who share their moments of Wonder, Woe and WTF?! with us. Each story is paired with a delicious martini recipe and a toast, inspired by the story.

Stories that inspire, entertain, and make you laugh ’til you pee. Plus martinis! And not just any-old-martinis—these ones were designed just for moms! These tales of Wonder, Woe and WTF?! share a little glimpse into the lives of other moms, who are a lot like you. Through their tales, we’re reminded to savour the little things (like capturing extra morning snuggles), to let go of the stresses (they won’t be in that unfortunate phase forever), and to be grateful for the laughs that the unexpected brings (because laughing is better than crying and it may be the only workout our abs get!). So shake up an easy-to-make martini, put your feet up (quickly, before the kids find you) and join us on our journey as we toast to the many clink-worthy moments that motherhood brings.

We have had a blast creating this book with our fabulous contributors, and we are so excited that we can now share their stories with you. The book is now available on and in the UK, in both paperback and for Kindle. In Canada please order paperback from or for Kindle on

    I’m sure I will enjoy them all but I have a feeling the WTF will give me the biggest belly laughs that I really need!
