Hope everyone had a great weekend and are starting the week with a bang. To make your week a little more interesting I have an Author Interview staring Amy Peterson the author of From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds
The book is quite humorous and is available on Amazon here.
Kindly introduce yourself to the blog audience.
|Author Amy Perterson|
Tell us a little more about your book and about what prompted you to write the book?
From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds is my humorous story of becoming a stepmom to four kids, ages three, five, 13 and 15. I wrote it because some of the other books about becoming stepmoms are as uplifting as lead balloons, or downright scary. My casual writing style is intended to invite people to get to know me as I show what it’s like to dive in head first without a clue what I was getting into. I also use fun chapter titles and include 70 tips which are humorous and helpful. Consider Tip #11: If your first meeting with the children doesn’t go well, rest assured it won’t be the last thing that won’t go well.
You went from Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds. How was it? Give us your comment on the same?
It was overwhelming and wonderful and stressful and a lot to adjust to and worth every moment. The kids were great: the two youngest (at three and five) were adorable and always excited to see me, and they didn’t seem to care that I didn’t know how to transform a Transformer or change a diaper on a doll (I was a bit of a tomboy growing up). The two older kids were teenagers and they were very good kids, too, though typical teenagers. Consider Tip #22: A teenager can say “I love you, I hate you, you’re cool, you suck,” in one breath to the same person. And mean every word.
Have you ever seriously considered duct taping them all together and sending them out so that you can have a moment’s peace? Kindly elaborate.

What do your kids say about the book? Are they all enthusiastic about it? Especially what do the teenagers say?
The book’s epilogue shares that the kids are all grown up now—the youngest is 22 and will graduate from college in April. So part of what I think my book offers is that the kids all “survived” me being their stepmom, which gives it some credibility. I think the kids would all be thrilled for me if the book became a bestseller. Or even a close-to-best seller. Or even if I sold enough copies to break even.
