If ever there were a time when family time was money—and less of both to boot—that time is now. Or more simply (albeit crudely) put: It’s a bitch out there for moms.
Fortunately, this week’s Blurb! Book of the Week honoree, Kristin Delfau, can help.
For her 272-page Turbo-Mom’s Guide to Saving Money Without Wasting Time “is written for women who need to save both time and money—while living in constant ‘turbo mode’ to squeeze everything into a 24-hour day.”
“We’re managing our households, taking care of our kids, holding down a job or two, sometimes with help from spouses and sometimes not,” says Kristin.
“How many hours do you spend trying to save money— and then realize that the effort and time outweighed the savings? Turbo-Mom isn’t about color-coding your closet or 101 uses for baking soda,” adds the Danbury, Conn., resident.
“It’s for the Turbo-mom who needs to be able to pick up this book, use it as a concise but informative guide on her chosen topic, and be on her way to saving money—and hopefully get a laugh or two along the way.”
A Turbo-mom herself, Kristin is not only a Fulbright scholar and member of the National Association of Tax Professionals, but owner of Delfau Tax and Financial Services.
So when she talks, we listen—just as you can do today at 12:30pm ET when Blurb! hosts Sally Shields and Dr. Kent welcome her to their show.
Each week, Sally and Dr. Kent review not books but prerecorded pitches from five writers in one genre whose literary works are hot off the presses.
And each scribe gets a mere three minutes to convince our resident critics that theirs is the book worth cracking. But if they succeed, they capture the coveted Book of the Week title.
That means Sally and Dr. Kent post it prominently on the Blurb! website, just as they did with Kristin’s book.
To top it all off, the winning author gets a guest spot on the show, during which to pitch his or her book live to listeners worldwide.
