Hey Kickstarter! My name is Lennie Ross, I’m an author and blogger living in Los Angeles, and my dating experiences with the wonderful gentlemen in this city as well as my love for entertainment have led me to write this book.

“Blow Me” The Book:

Blow Me is a tale of three single women—Chloe, Dawn, and Skylar—who live in Los Angeles and are hovering precariously close to forty. Aware that the women’s magazines of their youth sold them a false bill of goods about having it all: the amazing career, the baby, the house, the husband, they are each desperate in their own ways to achieve some sense of stability in their lives. This provocative novel in the style of Sex and the City provides a humorous, edgy and cynical look at aging, dating and being single in the new millennium.

Why I’m Raising The Dough:

This has been a long, wonderful, challenging journey, though I have nearly exhausted my own resources. I need $3,500 to help finish the book and design the artwork as well as self publish it in hardcopy and digital form. Just to give you a preview, many exerpts from the book are currently available on my blog for free, and I’ll be publishing more as I go along. If all goes as planned, I anticipate having the book published by late May/early June, 2011.

Read an exerpt from Chapter 13 here to get a feel for the book.

Thank you so much for your support and I hope you enjoy my novel, Blow Me
