Okay, so. Hi. My name is Almie Rose. Almie is not short for anything. If you google my name you will find a lot of things I’ve written and you will also find a short story from Chicken Soup For The Soul: A Third Helping about a little girl named Almie Rose who wanted a bicycle for Christmas, and yes, that story is about me. My mom wrote it. She’s Jewish. We didn’t know it would turn into a Christian fable. How could we? Yes, I’m Jewish. I am 1/2 German Jewish and 1/2 Italian so you can stop playing “guess the ethnicity” now.
I’m a writer from Los Angeles. In addition to this blog I also write for HelloGiggles, XoJane, Thought Catalog, The Gaggle, We Love Dates, The Frisky, and Genlux Magazine. I wrote a book, I Forgot To Be Famous, and it is out now. It is only $2.99, so if you hate it, it will at least be the cheapest mistake you ever made. You can follow me on twitter @apocalypstick. My favorite pastime is eating and drinking and sleeping and then eating again.
I WROTE A BOOK
Here’s me forgetting to be famous.
Here’s a blurb:
What do you do when your ex leaves you for his A-list actress ex girlfriend? How do you land a musician boyfriend? What’s it like to make a total jackass of yourself when you meet that actor you’ve had a crush on for years? What would When Harry Met Sally… look like in 2013? Am I hungry? These questions and more are answered and explored by Almie Rose in I Forgot To Be Famous, essays and how-to’s about dating, relationships, living in Los Angeles, and how they all crash into each other, like the car chase scene in the mall in the Blues Brothers movie, which she hasn’t seen, but is not at all opposed to.
Slightly more info can be found at the publisher’s page here.
Here’s press for the book:

No, I was not drunk when I worked on this page. I’m just full of enthusiasm. However, if you are a vodka company and want promotion, you should totally contact me.
I’ll add more to this page later.
