Well, I'm listening.
I'm going to pitch the idea to a few literary agents. Here's what I'm thinking:
I've read pretty much every drinking memoir and self help tome out there (see Sober Mummy's Book List for my favourites), and I think this book will be quite different.
It'll be based on the story of my first year - using extracts from this blog - but interspersed with loads of practical help (e.g. What to expect in the first month, how to party sober, dealing with cravings etc).
But the main thing is that, whilst almost all of the existing books are fairly serious and worthy, this one will be upbeat and - I hope - funny.
It's not aimed just at people who see themselves as 'alcoholics', but at the millions of women worldwide like you, and like me.
Women who viewed themselves as bon viveurs and connoisseurs, but who've begun to realise that it's all getting a bit out of control.
I want people to come away feeling inspired, uplifted and excited about the whole idea of giving up booze, to see it not as a terrible necessity, but as a fabulous lifestyle choice.
In short, I want to start a revolution.
I also want to include an epilogue, because this blog isn't just about me - it's about all of you. So I want to feature some of your stories too (only with your permission, obviously).
I think there's a huge market out there because, after all, this blog has had three quarters of a million page views with absolutely zero promotion. Just secret Googling, and word of mouth.
So, when I get back from Jamaica (did I tell you I was going to Jamaica?), I'm going to send off my pitch.
But, rather than me doing the hard sell, I thought it would be much better coming from the people that really matter, and really know - my readers.
Can you help me?
Just post a comment below, saying whether you would buy this book and/or recommend it, and if so why (if not, why not)? Then I'm going to send the agents a link direct you all your (unedited) comments.
If you've not posted before, and aren't sure how to go about it, just go to www.blogger.com and set up a blogger profile (which is completely anonymous). That'll enable you to comment on any Blogger blogs, under whichever pseudonym you choose.
Thank you, thank you. And watch this space.
