Book Excerpt

Have you ever been on Facebook and been amazed by what you just read?

Have you ever read a news story about a celebrity meltdown that has gone viral?

I have too and that is why I wrote Faceplant.

Faceplant is a chronicle of some of the most interesting true tales and epic fails on Facebook. Each chapter is woven together with original artwork and concludes with a commentary which we call a Faceplant take away--something constructive that you just might “take away” from the chapter.

It took over a year of reviewing, selecting and editing our favorite Facebook threads for this book to become reality. We cover dating, romance, jobs, cat fights, family Facebook meltdowns and more. I invite you to order my book today and enjoy the first edition of Faceplant, cuz you just can’t make this stuff up.
