Sneak Peek – The Obvious Game Cover Reveal


I’m excited to be a part of the cover reveal and associated giveaway for The Obvious Game from Rita Arens. Surrender, Dorothy is a must-read in my blog reader, and I can’t wait to read her first young adult novel. The Obvious Game deals with eating disorders, a topic I feel strongly about in terms of things we need to keep in our dialogue with our young people.


Rita Arens is the author of THE OBVIOUS GAME and the editor of the award-winning parenting anthology SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK. She writes the popular blog Surrender, Dorothy ( and lives in Kansas City with her husband and daughter. THE OBVIOUS GAME is her first young adult novel. She is at work on a second.

Rita has been a featured speaker at BlogHer 2012, BEA Bloggers Conference 2012, BlogHer Writers 2011, BlogHer 2011, Blissdom 2011, Alt Summit 2010, BlogHer 2010, BlogHer 2008 and BlogHer 2009, the 2008 Kansas City Literary Festival and 2009 Chicks Who Click and appeared on the Walt Bodine Show in 2008.

She’s been quoted by Bloomberg Businessweek, The Associated Press, Forbes Woman, the Wall Street Journal, Businessweek and Businessweek Online and featured in Breathe magazine, Get Your Biz Savvy, The Kansas City Star (archived material available on request), Today Moms (Today Show blog) and Ink KC.

SOOOOO glad I saw your post because it reminded me I hadn’t scheduled mine for Rita!! LOL. Let’s just say the last week has been crazy & awful. But this? Is something to be happy about. I’m so excited to read Rita’s book!

I can’t wait either. (And I’m glad I helped remind you.)

And thank you Erin, for Tweeting a link here, and about the book cover! I’m not part of any promotional campaign: just a huge fan of Rita and her writing. I can’t wait to read the book. And will look forward to the discussion of it by folks with daughters just a little older than mine.

Thanks for stopping by! I’m excited about Rita’s book, too. My girl is too young to talk about eating disorders, but I still need to be so conscious about the way I talk about food in front of her.
