On Tour 06/01/22-07/02/22 “Champagne For One” by Rebekah Iliff

Release Date: February 8, 2022

About The Book:

Single or not, most women could use a little more solitude than the world typically offers. Like many, Rebekah Iliff has spent ample time pondering her need for it, how much to ask for, and wondering why the world paints it in such a negative light. After the sudden loss of a close friend, she decided to go forward with their birthday spa day alone, and found herself drinking a glass of champagne solo in a spa, much to fellow patrons’ concern. This experience later sparked the poem “Champagne for One,” a joyful reflection on intentional solitude, and bubbled into this namesake collection of poetry and essays.

With sharp wit and sly satire, Iliff paints a picture of complete personal content, where you will finally see yourself embracing the value of solitary life and laughing along the way. Discover an array of conversation enders and a recipe for stag stew—the secret ingredient? 4 ounces of confidence—that will leave you equipped to take on even the most clingy companions and matchmaking expectations.

Book Blurbs: 

Rebekah Iliff’s Champagne for One turns myths about solitude on their head. A lighthearted miscellany of stories, poems, and satire, it paints aloneness as something to be prized, rather than pitied. The cheerful Champagne for One fetes the benefits of being on one’s own.—Rebecca Foster, book reviewer for Foreword Magazine

“Rebekah’s words are like your favorite champagne—just the right balance of dry and bubbly, approachable yet sophisticated, and thoroughly enjoyable in any setting. This book is the perfect read during some precious time of one’s own, and an ideal gift for anyone who savors their own company—or wants to learn how.”—Brooke Preston, comedy writer and co-author of New Erotica for Feminists (Penguin)

“After reading Rebekah’s poignant and hilarious Champagne for One, what I now realize is that being alone is bliss. It’s self care at its finest. It’s a chance to connect with myself and quiet the voices in my head that are often louder than a toddler that doesn’t get their snack. Do yourself a favor. Find a secluded spot on the beach or in the back of your closet, grab something bubbly, and get lost in Champagne for One.”

 — Shannon Carpenter, Humorist and Author of The Ultimate Stay-at-Home Dad (Penguin)
