Release Day and Free Story!

SamBohrman books No comments
My book’s out today!!! Go buy yourself a copy and pretend that summer isn’t over. It costs less than a flavored latte and is non-fattening and sugar free. It’s also less than a burger or maybe even a very large, out-of-season apple at Whole Foods. Although now that Amazon owns the place who knows. Isn’t it weird to think that you can buy my book and an apple from the same corporate entity? I’m relieved to say that early reviews are good! D.M. on Goodreads said: “Absolutely loved this book! It had everything [...]

BREAKING THE RULES OF REVENGE, Chapter One!

SamBohrman books No comments
I present you with Chapter One! And a French bulldog in a swing because I needed to add some sort of image. A little awkward. Just imagine it’s me watching you read it. Just kidding. I wouldn’t fit in that swing. via GIPHY Chapter One Pretty Please Mallory   Ugh. It figures. She had missed the bus. Again. She’d been reading The Unrequited Duchess in the back of the library, not that Mallory would admit to it. Her official story was— Actually, she didn’t need one. No one was going to ask. As she zipped [...]

I’m Back, Bitches!

My swoony, teen summer camp romance is coming your way!! It’s a little bit Wet Hot American Summer, except without all of the gross parts (because my editor made me take them out) and with a lot more romance (because my editor had me add that part in). It took me a couple of drafts to figure out that a romance can’t have that many poop jokes (current draft has zero) and the heroine should not wear Billy Bob teeth during important turning points in the story. I’m slow that way. Everyone say a prayer [...]

Regularly Scheduled Existential Despair

Last month I promised to start posting once a month. I’m already behind schedule, mostly because I’ve been delayed by my biannual identity crisis. September brought cooler weather and the unshakable compulsion to rethink all my life choices. What’s the point blogging mid-existential crisis? Is there a God? Should I blog? Maybe I should have. I can live-tweet it next time. At least my identity crisis made sense this time. I mean, I just sent the girls back to school. I sort of felt like someone has [...]

Book News!!

So I haven’t posted since October. That is a looooong time. If anyone out there is still reading my blog, greetings and salutations! Actually, I know a few people are still visiting the site, emphasis on visiting. I like to take the time to read and enjoy my spam comments now and then. (Hope you appreciate that, spammers!) A guy by the name of Nike Air (or maybe it was Movie Forum) said, “I am visiting this web site dailly and obtain fastidious data from here all the time.” I love that he claimed to [...]

The Cable Guy So Gets Me

That’s the statement of a housebound woman. But, moving onto my story… The cable internet guy arrived as we were about to leave this morning. He first came into the  living room, which was an explosion of child paraphernalia and children using furniture like a jungle gym. It was like that scene from Home Alone when twelve people are trying to leave for Paris, except I just had to drop two kids off at school. I think it’s worth mentioning that the guy had already waited on the stoop with my compost [...]

Uno: A Game of World Domination

Last Sunday morning I woke up and played Tic Tac Toe and Uno with my six year old while drinking coffee. Even at the time I knew it was one of those moments I’d look back on fondly as the years wear on. At the same time, I gained a deeper appreciation for people living in deeply flawed political systems, the kind of places where you have no voice or chance of financial success or freedom, the kind of place where you only make strides because the government decides not to extinguish your tiny flame [...]

Entangled Blog Hop!

Happy Halloween!! I’m so glad you stopped by my website!! If you haven’t been here before, my name is Samantha Bohrman and I write for Entangled. My first book, Ruby’s Misadventures with Reality, is about a modern day Dorothy juggling her career, too many hot guys at once, and an unexpected mystery. I figured I might post some Halloween-y stuff for this post, so I decided to look for Dorothy costumes online. I thought the people below had clever ones. I didn’t notice right off that they were missing [...]

Total Eclipse with Children

Lunar eclipses are cool, but sometimes I just don’t care. I’m tired and there is TV to watch, books to read. Who has time to look up? Especially when the kids have completely sucked you dry. We were going to let the kids watch the eclipse, but at 6:30 I couldn’t imagine spending another fifteen minutes with my offspring. Definitely not three hours. My husband saw the look on my face and informed the kids, “They canceled that eclipse.” After we finally got them in bed, I changed my mind. We hauled them [...]

Remodeling and Romance

Marriage is a series of compromises—where to eat, where to live, kids. It’s never ending. Some compromises stand out above the dull roar of everyday tacos-versus-hamburger negotiations. Some failures also stand out. For instance, this fridge. This fridge is currently in my family’s living room. It stands, a dirty white symbol of our failure to compromise, not to mention my husband and myself. It’s aging poorly as the kids slowly destroy it. It freezes all my lettuce, not to mention my warm feelings [...]
