About this project

There isn't a Belle in the land who doesn't need this book!

In 2011, the original Gridiron Belles: A Guide to Saturdays in Dixie hit the shelves-- and tailgates-- across the SEC, and I went on a 13-game tour in one season alone.  (Learn more about this on www.GridironBelles.com)

Thanks to this book, gridiron-loving belles learned the nuances of the game, the traditions of each SEC school, the etiquette of Saturdays down South, what to wear for a full day of football, and how to tailgate as a professional would before any kick-off. 

As fans stocked up for Christmas, graduation, hostess, bid-day, bridesmaids, Valentines Day and, in some cases, wedding gifts, Gridiron Belles-- the first edition-- sold out!

Which, was actually good timing because I needed to add the Texas A&M and Mizzou chapters to keep everyone up-to-speed on how to understand football and tailgate across the entire SEC.  Voila! The 2nd, updated, edition.   

Because this book is self-published, the printing cost is the most important part of getting this 2nd edition book to you and everyone else across the South.  So we NEED your help!  Please tell every gridiron-loving friend you have to pre-order their copy of Gridiron Belles. We can't think of a single Belle who doesn't need this book!

I can't thank you enough for your support. See you at the next tailgate!

Risks and challenges

Let's say we hit our goal. Yay!

Then I have to hit "print," and that takes about 5 weeks from start to finish. Because we are not a big Yankee publishing house, we are doing this as a small business. Which means, I'll have to host some "shipping parties" to make sure all orders are being accurately fulfilled and out to you in a timely manner.

So even though this campaign is happening in September, you won't likely get your book until October, maybe even early November. But, you will still have it before ANYONE ELSE who doesn't pre-order on Kickstart. Trust us, it's worth the wait. And I promise, the sooner you have your books, the happier we will all be... so I'll be trying my hardest to get your books to you as soon as possible.

Thanks again for your support!
