Shut Your Mouth When You're Talking To Me.... The Book Is Here!!!!

So, Ty and I just bought tickets to Paris for November. We haven't purchased return tickets, because I plan on being on living there until the government catches me. Ty suggests we make it back to America before Christmas and before we get deported. We'll see what happens.

We were watching Midnight In Paris and all I could think was, "I want to go to there." So we are, and I couldn't be more excited! Paris is my home, even if I butcher the language and hate the smell of camembert. The happiest I have ever been and will ever be, is walking the streets of Paris, breathing in second-hand smoke and saving my euros to eventually buy a Chanel bag. It's pure bliss.

I'm also counting the trip as a little congratulations to myself for releasing my book. Yep, the book is here. Really, it is!!




There are three options to purchase: a hardcover, a softcover and an ebook.

It's a little different than my mom's book. This is a collection of thirteen essays with lots of photos, some flattering, some not. It's all in here. Learning about my mom's diagnosis, Paris, Paris, Paris, the robbery, surgeries, goodbyes, therapy, my asshole dog Leo and enough Real Housewives references to count as another season.

This was hard to write. I wanted to be honest. The years this book covers, from 2007 to 2017, were not my best years as a human. I was in the middle of learning who I was and what I wanted from life, I made some mistakes. I wasn't always the best daughter. I didn't always have the best hair. But, writing this book and looking back at moments with my mom somehow made me remember moments that I thought were lost in my mind forever. It was like there was a little Tivo in my head that I couldn't record fast enough. All of a sudden entire days with my mom were being recalled. For the past year, all I thought about was this book. Thinking of stories that would interest people other than myself, things my mom said, titles for chapters, it was all-consuming. I would be driving and have to pull over to write the beginning of a chapter in the notes app on my phone. I didn't want to forget anything.

And now, all those notes have turned into a book. A 240 page book. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it. Actually, I hope you enjoy reading it more than I did writing it because sometimes I was so miserable trying to spell words like unfortunately and the difference between effect and affect that I considered going back to college.

I want to also thank every one of you for all your continued support. This is for you. Please enjoy.

Disclaimer: I'm giving you an inner working into my thoughts and not all those thoughts can be nice.

  2. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot about this, like you wrote the
    ebook in it or something. I feel that you simply
    could do with a few % to pressure the message
    home a little bit, but other than that, that is magnificent blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

  5. Good for you for finishing your book and booking your trip to Paris, I agree, I love just walking the streets of that lovely city and wouldn't want to have an end date to that either.
    I'm looking forward to my soft-cover arriving in November. I will be ready for the O'Connell wit and bite and humor. You embody your mother so wonderfully. Thank you!!

  13. I ignored (hid from) my needy family for two whole days so I could devour this book; just like I did with your mom's book last time this year. So many lol moments in the dark cold bathroom where I read. But as many times as I laughed, I also cried. I am envious of your support system. You are so loved and rightfully so. You're also a natural born writer with equal parts charm and wit.... Please continue to share your life with us...

  27. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
    before.
