Hello and welcome to the Grumpy Old Menopause blog tour! Having taken the world by storm and rocketed up the charts to become the #1 best selling book on Amazon, this light and humorous guide to beating the more unpleasant symptoms of the menopause is essential reading for anyone going through or simply preparing themselves for this unavoidable change. So buckle up and let Carol E. Wyer show you how it’s done!
What they say:
‘Have you started to write post-it notes with your kids’ names on them? Do you need to change your underwear after every sneeze? Guess it’s time to read this book then. It’ll help you get through “that” time in your life with a spring in your step and a smile on your face.
With numerous suggestions, sensible advice and amusing anecdotes, Grumpy Old Menopause will help you sail through that tricky part of a woman’s life with ease and humour. It should prevent you from turning into Mrs Crabby or worse still, a demonic monster.’
“An excellent mix of humour and sound advice. This book is a must-read for all women … I highly recommend Grumpy Old Menopause. It is the perfect blend of humour and excellent advice to help all women sail through the menopause.” – Nicky Snazell, Fi STOP Consultant Physiotherapist in Spinal Pain, Fellow of Institute for the Study and Treatment of Pain. International Lecturer in Pain and Health.
“Question: What can a husband do when his wife is going through menopause?
Answer: Keep busy. If he’s handy with tools, he can finish the basement. Then when he’s finished, he’ll have a place to live.”
I’m definitely gonna need this book when menopause hits me for about twenty years from now. Ms. Wyer writes about her menopausal experience in such a funny way, you’ll think that menopause is not such a big deal. The whole guide is written in alphabetical order, every letter stands for some of the menopausal simptoms. She offers some treatments and everything is spiced with so much humor, I laughed so hard many times. Every page is full of menopausal jokes making it really hard not to laugh. Humor is such a unique way to deal with the physical and emotional changes that women are going through the menopause.
I totally enjoyed Ms.Wyer’s humorous writing, so I’ll definitely be on a search for her other books. This is not classical woman’s fiction, but a guide for surviving the menopause. My only complaint though would be it is too short. Getting old is not a bad thing but natural way of life and deserves much more pages. And much more menopausal jokes. Humor is the best way to deal every problem in life.
My rating: 4/5
I have always written stories. My early stories were for children and sported silly titles like Humphrey and the Dustbin Cats, Hurrah for Hugo! and Noir and Blanc – Two Naughty Cats. They taught French language to younger children and were accompanied by a tape of French songs, mercifully not sung by me.
I began writing for adults after my son left home. I converted his old bedroom into an office and set about writing humorous novels largely aimed at women of a certain age.
The rest is history. Following much media success with Mini Skirts and Laughter Lines, I signed the Amanda Wilson novels with Thornberry Publishing. In 2012, I was lucky enough to be offered a three book deal with Safkhet Publishing. They have published How Not to Murder Your Grumpy and Just Add Spice, and released Grumpy Old Menopause, the sister book to How Not to Murder Your Grumpy, in December 2013.
My books aim to encourage as many people as possible to age disgracefully and enjoy life. After all, life is short and ‘he who laughs…lasts!’
