I’d Rather Wear Pajamas by Chelsea Walker Flagg Giveaway, Book Sale & Excerpt



I’d Rather Wear Pajamas
by Chelsea Walker Flagg

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Humor/Memoir
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Everybody has the awesome opportunity to find their own strength and path through life. Some come about their self-discoveries through studying and working hard. Others (Chelsea) spend their time nearly burning down kitchens and driving around the country with a car full of hangers.

Chelsea grew up wanting to be “strong.” She thought arguing her way through childhood and becoming a world-class attorney would get her there. But, through a series of humorous, and only slightly embarrassing events, Chelsea comes to realize that maybe her strength is meant to shine in different ways.




Excerpt

FTL’s biggest client was a fabric design company that made nothing but Hawaiian prints. I’m actually pretty sure they no longer make anything, but rather spend good chunks of their time suing other companies who copy their designs. For me, it meant perusing catalogues and clothing websites in search of items with designs similar to this company’s retired fabrics. How great a job is that, by the way? I was getting paid to look for shirts with palm trees and hibiscus flowers on them. This whole law thing was too good to be true.

My best assignment came when FTL caught wind that a men’s underwear line was infringing on our client’s design name. She came by and dropped a stack of male lingerie catalogues (yes, they exist) on my desk to go through in search of this name. I spent the better part of a week looking at pictures at mostly-naked men with socks stuffed in their skivvies.

Nobody knew what to do with me. On one hand, studying oiled-up men in scandalous poses just had to be against any number of company policies. On the other hand, I was legitimately doing work in an effort to make the law firm money, so they couldn’t discourage it. In the end, they just left me alone. And that’s how I learned that you can buy men’s briefs with pre-padded butt cheeks.”

  10. Who designed your cover art? Why did you go with that particular artwork?

    1. Hi Mayor! Great questions - a very talented gal named Kelly Angelovic did the artwork for my cover. I kept trying to imagine what stock photo I could manipulate to make a "professional-looking" cover, and couldn't picture it. So, I met with Kelly instead. Her art is so perfect for the mood of my book - It couldn't have turned out better and I love it more and more every day!
