Honey Notes--The Perfect Stocking Stuffer

It was nearly a year ago, in mid January, that I posted my review of Maria Murnane's charmingly quirky self-published novel Perfect on Paper: The Mis-Adventures of Waverly Bryson. The story of Ms Waverly, a young professional woman, opens with her fiance dumping her just days before the wedding and follows her through the following year or so as she first mourns then fumbles and bumbles her way back onto the dating scene.

To console and distract herself and entertain her girlfriends as she suffers through one dating disaster after another, a series of professional power shuffles that don't all go in her favor, and dicey encounters with her dilettante Dad, Waverly composes these humorous couplets she calls Honey Notes:

Looking forward to a fresh start with the New Year?
Honey, I'm with you but I can't seem to leave behind my behind.

Have a tendency to put your foot in your mouth?
Honey, at least it is less fattening than putting ice cream in your mouth.

Her friends encourage her to turn them into a greeting card line.

Well Maria Murnane's friends and reader's encouraged her to do the same and now Perfect on Paper has been re-released by Amazon Encore in conjunction with the release of the Honey Notes. Either or both would make a great stocking stuffer for the 20 to 40 something single women on your Xmas list this year

These are the six Honey Notes chosen for the first packet:
Front: Ever feel like you don't know anything at all?
Inside: Honey, congratulations. At least you finally know that.

Front: Afraid to show your vulnerable side?
Inside: Honey, that's better than showing your cellulite side.

Front: Can't face the dating scene after a breakup?
Inside: Honey, hit the bar, and hit it hard. Beer goggles are the lonely girl's Cupid.

Front: Life has its ups and downs, right?
Inside: Honey, if you're talking about my weight and my bank account, the unfortunate answer is yes, in that order.

Front: Is it worse to be fake or bitchy?
Inside: Honey, just face it. If you're asking, you're probably both.

Front: They say laughter is the best medicine?
Inside: Honey, toss it in with girlfriends and wine, and you've found the fountain of youth.
