Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 21, 2004
Mother-in-law experts Liz Bluper and RenÃ©e Plastique (names have been changed to protect the guilty), authors of the recently released "Mothers-In-Law Do Everything Wrong: M.I.L.D.E.W." (Andrews McMeel, ISBN: 0-7407-4208-6, trade paperback), have sparked a revolution with their code word: MILDEW. With "M.I.L.D.E.W." now in its second printing, their playful acronym is infiltrating todayÂs vernacular as women talk to each other about that all-too-familiar marriage by-productÂthe mother-in-law.
The authors are helping millions "laugh their MILDEW away" by sharing their hilarious strategies, stories and relatable experiences. While some women have wonderful mother-in-law relationships, others have ÂchallengingÂ onesÂwhether due to differing styles or the generation gap. Regardless, countless women have enjoyed M.I.L.D.E.W.Âs Âlaughter as therapyÂ take on these relationships. They are discovering that when it comes to MILDEW, laughter really is the best medicine. "'M.I.L.D.E.W.' is truly therapeutic!Â says one reader.
With its broad appeal, "M.I.L.D.E.W." is inspiring mothers-in-law, too. By taking their scientifically calibrated quiz, more than one mother-in-law has been surprised at the results and subsequently changed her ways. Bluper and Plastique are hearing reports of reduced marital stress and improved family relations. ÂWorld peace canÂt be far behind!Â quips Plastique.
Every year, Mother-in-Law Day is the 4th Sunday of October. In 1981, the House voted 305 to 66 to establish this important holiday. ÂMother-in-Law Day, though not a well-known holiday, is a wonderful opportunity to improve relations,Â says Bluper. ÂOr to commiserate,Â adds Plastique. ÂAnother example of our government hard at work.Â
Liz Bluper and RenÃ©e Plastique (a.k.a. Rachel Latto and Diane Tarshis) have been guests on radio shows across the country, with Plastique also making television appearances on ChicagoÂs ABC News and on WGN News.
"Mothers-In-Law Do Everything Wrong: M.I.L.D.E.W." retails for $9.95 and is available at booksellers throughout the country, including Barnes & Noble, Borders and Amazon.com. To learn more visit http://www.mymildew.com.
