Kindle Pick of the Week: The Amy Binegar-Kimmes-Lyle Book of Failures: A funny memoir of missteps, inadequacies, and faux pas

With a book release party coming on Monday night in the Atlanta area, let's take a look at Amy Lyle's book:

THE AMY BINEGAR-KIMMES-LYLE BOOK OF FAILURES is a humor memoir. If you have ever failed at love, finances, been fired, not fit in, self-diagnosed yourself with disorders and conditions and/or said "I really need to get my s*** together," this is the book for you. Delight in Amy Lyle’s 45 years of missteps, inadequacies and faux pas. You may appreciate your own dysfunction a little more as you take a journey through Amy’s debacles including: “I Was Not Talking to You,” where Amy mistakes a handsome man waving at her as a potential suitor but in reality he was only trying to inform her that her belt was dragging on the freeway and “In the Neighborhood,” where members of a cult moving in concurred with a suspicious decline in the cat population.

There is more than just that.

 

Books launch info:

The book launch party will be a social media movement (#bookoffailures) and cocktail party, offering wine and cheese and lots of prizes from local businesses, including $100 Home Depot gift cards, free eye brow waxes, vampire facial, and a SculptSure fat reducing treatment. Fellow high-functioning dysfunctionals who aspire to channel their missteps, inadequacies and faux pas into success will be on hand to celebrate.

Ten percent of all book proceeds, including sales at the book launch and all sales total, will be donated to local charity, The Place of Forsyth County, which empowers people through training to become self-sufficient. The event is free for the public, but attendees are asked to bring a health or beauty item donation for The Place of Forsyth County.

Local dignitaries in attendance will be:

Atlanta”
