What’s an antrilogy, you ask?
Well, it’s a set of three awesomely entertaining anthologies written (mostly) by women for women.
We may have just made up that word. I’m not sure.
I do know that if you have not gotten your hands on The Mother of All Meltdowns, Clash of the Couples
and/or Only Trollops Shave Above the Knee, you are probably living under a rock.
That’s not true. You’ve probably just been busy. Luckily, now you can get these three great reads all at once.
More on the antrilogy:
They say it takes a village to raise a child, an enormous amount of patience to survive love and marriage, and one day you will, in fact, turn into your mother. They couldn’t be more right as evidenced in this wildly popular collection of anthologies including a number one parenting bestseller.
With over one hundred quick-read stories, The Girlfriends’ Collection is about celebrating the stages of life– together. Overflowing with “only another women would understand” anecdotes, Girlfriends’ reminds us that even though we are a diverse group, we all travel a similar path and have many familiar experiences. You’ll instantly connect with the honest voices and be entertained and swept away.
So be sure to schedule yourself a time-out, pretend you’re sick– do whatever it takes to treat yourself to this humorous and touching collection written by a group of very talented writers.
It’s perfect weekend reading! Enjoy!
I should note that I am a co-author of The Mother of All Meltdowns. My piece, “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” is all about my worst moment as a mom, where I experienced the perfect trifecta of mothering: yelling, swearing and crying.
I was also still married and, thus, known as Jennifer Barbour.
I shared the cover reveal and an exclusive interview with Lynn Shattuck, co-author of Clash of the Couples, and her husband last year. That was a fun read.
Admittedly, I have not yet read Only Trollops Shave Above the Knee, released this past April. I will have to rectify that soon.
I have some good friends that have written pieces for all three of these books, and the managing editor (Crystal Ponti of Mommifried and Blue Lobster Book Company) knows how to bring together stories from authors with different points of view. The end result is a complete work that is relatable to any woman.
If you are looking for some entertaining books to read this summer, check out the antrilogy: The Girlfriends’ Collection: Stories of Love, Motherhood, & Beyond! As I write this, it’s only $5.99 for the kindle edition on Amazon.
