Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 15, 2006
Ellen Simonetti, the Delta Air Lines flight attendant who was fired in 2004 because of her blog, will release her ground-breaking self-published book, Diary of a Dysfunctional Flight Attendant: The Queen of Sky Blog, this April.
The book, a novel in blog format, brings the Internet phenomenon of blogging to the traditional publishing world. In the process, a new and exciting genre is born—a genre that allows everyone (even the technologically challenged) to experience the addictive voyeurism of this hip new medium.
The novel is based on Simonetti’s controversial true story, which made headlines around the world and caused an international debate about the limits of free speech. It follows the online ramblings of “Queen of Sky,” the alter ego of Elena Guaio, a fun-loving, light-hearted and slightly dysfunctional flight attendant for “Anonymous International Airlines.” Elena’s blog quickly becomes her trusted confidant, which she uses as a release and a tool to sort through the numerous ups and downs of her life.
As the months go by, Elena writes more and more candidly about the irritations of her job. She eventually even decides to post pictures of herself on her blog—pictures in her flight attendant uniform. The result of this seemingly innocent act throws her life into complete disarray. And a struggle of David and Goliath proportions ensues.
With entry titles like “Where’s the Glamour,” “The Trip from Hell,” and “The Joys of Commuting,” The Queen of Sky Blog is a realistic and humorous portrayal of a twenty-something single flight attendant just trying to find her way in the Technology Age.
The book’s first printing will be a short run of 1,000 hard cover copies priced at $24.95, with a discount available to Delta flight attendants. Pre-orders will be available on Simonetti’s Website, BlogBasedBooks.com, beginning March 1st. The book will be exclusively sold on BlogBasedBooks.com, except for the first ten copies, which Simonetti will be selling signed and numbered on eBay as soon as it is released in late April.
The book’s front and back covers are attached. You can also see them at:
