St Johnsbury, VT (PRWEB) December 17, 2007
The holiday season is particularly stressful for busy moms, and this December Mom Writer's Literary Magazine (MWLM) unveils a very special issue. Filled with columns, profiles and inspirational essays, the popular magazine provides a warm, wintry respite for all creative moms.
"Everyone ramps up around the holidays so we wanted to present an issue that was relaxing, inspirational and encouraged creativity among our writing and reading moms. We are excited to feature Skye Hoppus as our cover story. She is a writer, an entrepreneur, wife and mother, and she dispenses hip and contemporary advice that real women can use," said Paula Schmitt, MWLM's founder and publisher.
Author of "Rock Star Momma," Hoppus brings a hip style and glamour to pregnancy and beyond. Her upbeat tone and stylish advice puts some sexy and glam into motherhood. "Rock Star Momma" includes a foreword by Gwyneth Paltrow, and chapters that include the Denim to Die For guide, celebrity advice and must-have tips. "This book is really fun to read. Mothers-to-be and new mothers will enjoy this profile that highlights Hoppus' sassy style and her message of individuality," Schmitt said. In addition to being a successful author, Hoppus also owns Childish Clothing, a clothing line that includes both maternity and kids' collections.
The winter edition of MWLM also includes several fascinating profiles. "We've put together a collection of profiles on inspirational women from across the country. Each of these ladies has a unique point of view and an interesting perspective to share," said Schmitt. Readers will learn about Erica Lyon, founder of the Realbirth Center in New York; renowned children's author Candace Fleming, and award-winning artist, poet, illustrator and author Annie Ruth. To provide readers with practical writing and career tips, the profile on Christina Katz describes how she successfully maintains a writing career while raising children.
MWLM's winter issue includes four book reviews by Review Editor Jennifer Brown. Brown details Anita Shreve's newest novel "Body Surfing," a story that explores love and betrayal set again in a beach house in New Hampshire. "The Other Mother," is author Gwendolen Gross' third novel and this tense, gripping story explores the complex challenges of motherhood. In contrast "Evan Brain: Adventures of a Delusional Kid Superhero," is a humorous story co-authored by 15-year-old Evan Doyle. This funny book appeals to tweens, teens and parents alike. Finally Brown reviews "Motherless Mothers," Hope Edelman's non-fiction book. Using interviews, anecdotes and research it is a personal, sensitive portrayal about how the death of Edelman's own mother affects the way she parents today.
