Our New E BOOK! A Writer’s Badass Guide: Branding, Blogging and Social Media

fI can not even begin to tell you all how thrilled I am to present to my glorious subscribers and readers Suburban Misfit Mom’s first e-book, A Writer’s Badass Guide: Branding, Blogging and Social Media written by Nathalie Laitmon and MEEEEEEEE!


Many moons ago the lovely Nathalie Laitmon, Suburban Misfit Mom founder, and I were having a phone conversation about how we could better platform the amazing writing of the Suburban Misfit Mom writers.  The answer ended up being this book, which is available for pre-order right NOW and will launch April 1st.



Here is the book description on AMAZON:

“A Writer’s Badass Guide To Branding, Blogging and Social Media is a fun and easy step by step guide for new writers, bloggers and entrepreneurs. This book teaches writers how to conceptualize and develop their personal brand using meaningful and strategic exercises, create a website from soup to nuts, and utilize social media to promote their work. Nathalie Laitmon and Kristin McCarthy of SuburbanMisfitMom.com combine years of branding expertise with cutting edge social media strategies to assist writers and entrepreneurs in building an authentic and resonate brand that will get their writing read while growing their community of dedicated followers online. The authors use their offbeat sense of humor to motivate writers while demystifying the seemingly complex process of building a personal website and growing a brand.”


Please someone pinch me.

We are so incredibly appreciative to all who have supported this journey.  First and foremost we need to thank our husbands who have sacrificed countless evening hours of bonding time (wink, wink) so that we could work well into the night.  Thanks to Suburban Misfit Mom’s very own Brooke Emery for all of her publishing wisdom and insight.  Of course thank you to our children, who we often had to ignore and throw vast amounts of fruit snacks at just so we could get ten minutes of work done during the daylight hours.  A big thank you goes out to our editor, Jeri, our format buddy Nick, and special thanks to my mom Cindy who came to the house countless times to take over daily tasks so that Nathalie and I could get down to business.  It really does take a village doesn’t it?  Last but certainly not least thanks to all of the amazing writers at Suburban Misfit mom.  You have all been so encouraging and patient throughout this entire process.  We hope that we did you proud and created something truly useful for you all.  I can wholeheartedly say that you beautiful writers were our sole inspiration for crafting this initial book.


My dear Nathalie- there is no one else I could have done this with.  It is you whom I owe my writing start to.  It is you who convinced me that I was indeed a writer and it certainly is you who took a chance on a newbie blogger and bestowed upon her a giant responsibility within the Suburban Misfit Mom brand.  Fate gifted us each other and I am so thrilled to be working along side you at Suburban Misfit Mom creating, inspiring, writing and now publishing.


If you are a writer, a blogger, or even a small business start up then this book is right up your alley.  Please consider buying it or sharing it with others who might be interested in its contents.

  9. Hi Kristin, how fantastic that you put a book together. There is so much technical jargon used when it comes to creating a blog or website that to have a book that demystifies it is only a good thing.
