San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2004
Fueled by StarbucksÂs posting in July of a 44% jump in profit from the same quarter in 2003 and the companyÂs plan to open another 1500 stores in 2005, Shana Moore is more convinced than ever that she has a growing audience in latte lovers.
With one finger on the percolated pulse of AmericaÂs latest addiction and the others typing madly at her keyboard, Shana not only coined a new synonym for ÂsassyÂ but also summed up the frenzied lifestyle that any woman over 30 can relate to. The result is her first book, Caffeinated Ponderings on Life, Laughter & Lattes, a collection of observational humor essays, linked together hilariously through the theme of coffee.
The chapter on relationships, for example, is titled: ÂMarital Mishaps: I donÂt remember ordering a drip!Â while the chapter on parenting is named: ÂThe Perils of Parenting: The add shot years.Â While every wife and mother can relate to those topics, non-parents can also relate in such chapters as: ÂThe Plight of an Aging Bean: Pick me before IÂm compost!Â
Caffeinated Ponderings has already been given both an EditorÂs Choice and a ReaderÂs Choice award by iUniverse and is receiving reviews such as the following from Kymberli Brady, Author of Give Them Wings and Let Them Fly and The Sleepy Little Star:
"Shana is a modern day Erma Bombeck, with non-stop whimsical wit and hysterical humor wrapped into this delicious book. Everyone will relate to and relish her ponderings on life in today's society. A must read with your daily coffee --her words are the cream and sugar behind the best latte you've ever had.Â
Shana also writes a monthly column, Fresh Brew, for her ezine subscribers at http://www.caffeinatedponderings.com . Her essays have also appeared in The San Jose Mercury News, The Almaden Times and on numerous Web sites.
