A few reviews if you are not yet convinced to take action:

"In Totally Desperate Mom Wendy shares candidly about the victories, the defeats, the surprises, the embarassment, the pain . . . the deep joy. A soon-to-be-mom? This will get you the closest you've been to the highs and lows of motherhood. A seasoned mom-pro? Then you will slip and slide from howling in laughter to tears as you remember. Because we ALL remember. I read few books on parenting/motherhood/anything. Time is so limited, but I have been enriched and impacted by Wendy's authenticity. Her warmth. Her use of scripture and life-application. And humor."-- Jenny of Jenny on the Spot

"I finished the book the other night and it has seriously got to be one of the best books I've ever read! The hilarious, real-life stories are ones you want to share with your friends and her honestly about being stretched to your limits makes you feel like you are not alone in "The Motherhood." -- Heather of Angel Face Designs

I have been reading Wendy's blog for a couple years now and absolutely love her writing style and humor. Her book followed the same writing style and contained the same humor, so in that way I loved it. But I also loved it for the realistic stories and lessons in parenting. I felt so encouraged and not alone after reading that other moms struggle with the same occasional feelings of inadequacy, frustration etc that I do. And even though I wasn't raised religious and couldn't identify with that aspect of the book, I didn't find it off-putting either. Loved the book, and will highly recommend it to all my mom friends! --Kim Reitz of It's all Reitz

I recently came across a story about Darcie Chan, who digitally publish her book (“The Mill River Recluse”) after being turned down by numerous agents and publishing houses.

She bought some ads on websites targeting e-book readers, paid for a review from Kirkus Reviews, and priced her book at 99 cents to attract readers. Since then her work has received about 400,000 downloads and has garnered bids from publishers and movie studios without having ever sold a single copy in print.

A similar path could be worth a try. Good luck to you.
