I have a new book coming out! On Thursday!

Here’s some exciting news I am just now able to tell you about: I have a new book coming out! And you can read it on Thursday! Yes! This Thursday! July 23!

The book is called Like Living Among Scorpions: One Woman’s Quest to Survive Her Suburban Life, and I can’t wait to share it with you!


Like Living Among Scorpions is a collection of the most ridiculous essays from here on the blog. It’s all the craziest stories of my life of having six babies in eight years with a house full of scorpions (and occasionally wondering what on earth is up with Trucknutz). I thought it would be fun to collect it all into a book for some light summer reading!

The details:

  • There is a foreword by Simcha Fisher!
  • There is a brand new introduction and conclusion
  • It will be released only under the Amazon Kindle format for now, but you do not need to own a Kindle to read it (you can download the free Kindle app on any device)

It was so fun to put this book together and re-live these great stories. If you’re looking for a light summer read that gives you a laugh — or at least makes you feel much better about your own life — this just might be it.

I can’t wait for you to check it out on Thursday!

    This is awesome… At first I thought you were joking and you were just going to tell us another scorpion story!! So happy it’s for real – can’t wait to read it!

  2. Emily D.

    That’s awesome, Jen! Can’t wait to read it!

    • Jennifer Fulwiler

    Can’t wait to read it! Looks fabulous!

    Cant wait! Sounds perfect for my non-Edel (womp womp) trip to Charleston! The kids and I saw a tomato horn worm today… They loved it but I knew it was pure evil for our garden!

    Will it ever be issued as a paperback book?

    • Jennifer Fulwiler

      At some point that is a possibility, but it’s not in the works right now. Thanks!

    I feel like this book is going to remind me of how much I’ve missed regular blog posts from you! Both super excited and a little sad.

    • Jennifer Fulwiler

      Thanks, Angela! I miss blogging too. Hope to get back to it!

    Congrats on the upcoming book! Nice way to embrace the scorpions in your life. Write about ’em. 🙂
