Buy Rants in the Dark

I have a book! Holy shit!

This is what it says on the back. I totally didn’t write the bit at the back. Promise. Well on the actual book itself I wrote the bit on the back, but not this bit. OK actually this isn’t even on the back, but it’s on the Penguin website. Look never mind – I am just rambling now.

Popular blogger Emily Writes gives words of encouragement to sleep-deprived parents everywhere.

With two small boys, both non-sleepers, Emily finds herself awake in the wee small hours night after night. Her writing is often done then, and she offers her own often hilarious and always heart-warming experiences to other exhausted parents. She describes the frustrations as well as the tender moments of real parenting, as opposed to what you thought it was going to be like, or what well-meaning advice-givers tell you it should be like. A must-have for all new parents and parents-to-be.

If that sounds like something you’d be into – you can buy it at all good bookstores. Keep a local bookstore going by buying it there – try Time Out in Mt Eden, Ekor Bookshop & Cafe or Unity Books in Wellington or Scorpio Books in Christchurch. If you can’t get to a bookstore – order it online with free international shipping here*. Yes, that’s really free ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD you don’t have to be in New Zealand to buy this book**! Or you can buy it here, here, here, or here.

If you’re in Australia – the book is available at bookstores, you can also have it ordered it. You can also buy it on Onceit and get free delivery to Australia from New Zealand.

Or you can get it as an E-book through Apple, Amazon Kindle or Kobo.

If you bought this book or you’re going to buy it – please know that I love you seriously, and I really hope you like it. Please let me know what you think of it.

If you want me to come and do a reading somewhere – I’d love to! Email me at emilywritesnz @
