Dawn Meehan gives the "Said" to Moms of America

By Garrett Godwin

Dawn Meehan has been called by her readers America`s next Emma Bombeck, with her blog becoming the most popular post on eBay with one million hits. Now, she is going to bring all of her wisdom and humorous wit in her book for Guidepost entitled Because I Said So, in which she makes fun of her mistakes as a mother but always has a good heart for her family. It will debut in bookstores next Mother`s Day.

"We`re thrilled to publish Dawn on the Guideposts Books Spring trade list" said Linda Cunningham, Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of Books & Inspirational Media. "Other moms clearly identify with her hectic family life, and love the way she rolls with it all by using her unabashed sense of humor.

Clearly anyone who has built a single blog into a 40,000 plus daily readership practically overnight like Dawn has done, has something to say that people want to hear."

Dawn`s blog," target=_new>, has been nominated for four Blogger`s Choice Awards and is ranked as one of the top parenting blogs since becoming America`s premier blogging mom. Dawn will be writing a follow-up of Because I Said So that is slated for 2010, while she`s being offered projects that include films as well as her own sitcom.

"Dawn`s down-home humor and her willingness to present herself as a less-than-perfect mom", states Janet Kobobel Grant of Books & Such Literary Agency, "endured her to moms everywhere, who often write her to say, `I forgot how to laugh until I read your blog`".
