HOPress-Shorehouse Books is proud to announce that today is launch day for the very funny Jamie Reidy and his newest book Sweep Her Off Her Feet: Seriously, Dude, Clean Up Your Place! Last we visited Jamie, author of the best selling Hard Sell: Now a Major Motion Picture Love & Other Drugs, he was busy promoting Need One: A Lunatic’s Attempt to Attend 365 Sporting Events in 365 Days. A charitable endeavor (Jamie has a big heart but don’t spread it around), this book received praise from everyone who appreciated Jamie’s determined try at an almost impossible feat. (Unfortunately, making a living interfered with the ultimate goal, but Jamie gave it the old Notre Dame and US Army try. He truly was an Army officer (his dad told me so and there is a paper trail) so buy his books this Memorial Day-we owe him.
Anyway, in his latest work, Jamie comes through again counseling those in need. This book just might save a guy you love from death by dust inhalation. Got a soon-to-be college graduate, fella moving out of his parents’ house, or a recently divorced man in your life? You know, a clueless single dude who truly believes that his toilet bowl cleans itself? This book is for him. Sweep Her Off Her Feet gives my cleaning-challenged compadre funny, yet practical instructions for quickly getting his place date-ready. It even provides the list of weapons he will carry into battle against the dark and dirty forces that have invaded his castle. Follow Jamie on Facebook and Twitter
Today, on launch day we have an “in-depth” interview with Jamie. Enjoy!
1.Give us an update on Jamie Reidy since your last book Need One: A Lunatic’s Attempt to Attend 365 Games in 365 Days?
Jamie is a writer and recovering slob living in Hermosa Beach, California.
2.Tell us the inspiration for this book Sweep Her Off Her Feet: Seriously, Dude, Clean Up Your Place!
Jamie once asked himself what he would do to improve the condition of his apartment to impress a woman. The answer really bummed him out. Everything? After that, he set out to determine the quickest and easiest ways to get his apartment date ready.
3.What do you think men will learn?
Male readers will learn that there are major benefits to cleaning their apartments. They will also learn that the cleaning process itself isn’t as painful as they fear it to be. Actually, that’s not true. It’s pretty bad. But, the cleaning will be worth it.
4.What do you think women will learn?
That the list of things that can motivate guys to clean is a short one.
5.What is your expertise on the subject matter?
Jamie gained his self-taught expertise as the result of being too cheap to pay for a cleaning lady.
6,What is one good reason for a guy to finally clean his place?
100% of women surveyed said they were more likely to sit down on a couch in a clean apartment than a dirty one.
