Middle-aged women need to reinvent their lives and celebrate parties in the empty nest.

Brown Books Publishing Group has signed celebrated #1 best-selling author, syndicated blogger, and humorist Elaine Ambrose to publish her newest book, Midlife Happy Hour: Our Reward for Surviving Careers, Kids, and Chaos.

“Middle-aged women need to reinvent their lives and celebrate parties in the empty nest,” Ambrose said. “They know if the glass is half empty, fill it fast and pass the cookies.”

Midlife Happy Hour is a collection of humorous essays and anecdotes that is Ambrose’s sequel to her #1 best-selling 2014 release of Midlife Cabernet touted by Publishers Weekly as “laugh-out-loud funny!”

With her Brown Books title, scheduled for October release, Ambrose boldly and hilariously pens her latest kiss-my-attitude book in order to share her irreverent advice. Readers will learn how to remain relevant when the world ignores them, why their children are cute but should grow up and move out, how to communicate with aging parents, and why it’s never too late to enjoy a passionate love life, but only with proper lighting.

Working women will relate to her humorous tales of surviving various jobs while raising children, wiping toddler snot off her fashionable business suits, and competing as a funny female in a serious, male market. She grew up on a potato farm outside the village of Wendell, Idaho, and became the state’s first female television news reporter, a manager in a Fortune 500 Corporation, and a magazine editor.

Ambrose received international acclaim when one of her humorous stories became one of the most-read posts in the history of The Huffington Post. Her viral essay was translated into six languages and published around the world. She has received multiple awards from the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) and ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Awards.

Other books by Ambrose include The Magic Potato, a bilingual children’s book that was approved for the statewide school curriculum. Her first collaboration was with New York Times bestselling author Joanne Kimes to write Menopause Sucks.

Ambrose delivers just the right recipe for laughter with Midlife Happy Hour. Cheers to the readers who will laugh out loud!
