Funny Women Have More Fun…

Travel isn’t always what we dream it will be, but oh…the stories we can
tell later! For the 29 women in this book, packing a sense of humor was
essential to the success of their trips. From Australia to Zambia,
Thailand to Kuwait, the true stories in Sand in My Bra will not only have you shaking your head in disbelief, they’ll induce smiles, groans, cackles, and guffaws.

More Sand in My Bra
Edited by Julia Weiler and Jennifer L. Leo

ISBN 1-932361-50-2
288 pages,

The fifth book in the Travelers’ Tales Sand in My Bra series is on bookstore shelves now! With this book I’m passing the torch over to the effervescent and intrepid super-chica Julia Weiler.

You might remember Julia from the “Utili-panties,” from our panty-decorating contest during our marketing efforts for Whose Panties Are These? The following year her story, “R-Rated Rescue” was published in The Thong Also Rises, and the year after that she contributed her honeymoon confessions in “Be Grateful, Not Hateful” in What Color Is Your Jockstrap?

Julia has put together a fun collection of tales of women’s travels sure to entertain and inspire women who both love the road, and are wishing to get on it. If the women who’ve survived the Ms.-adventures in these five books can live to laugh about their travels, surely those who are hesitating can, too.

***Winner of the Silver Award for Humor
from the 2007 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

The men were hankering to be a part of the Sand in My Bra series fun and we couldn’t say no. You’ll find some of your favorite writers in this collection including Tim Cahill, Rolf Potts, Elliott Hester, Susan Orleans, Laurie Notaro, Jim Benning, J. Maarten Troost, and even poker pro, Phil Gordon. This might be the funniest book in the series – but I can’t play favorites.
