Exciting News!

I know you've all been desperate to hear from me. Where has Anissa gone? Why this extensive absence (again, for the 100th time)? Well this time, there's a good reason. Really! I have been working on something new – something HUGE! It's my second book people! So, I think that's a pretty good excuse, don't you? So if you really missed me and my words of infinite wisdom (and humor) all you have to do is buy a copy of Beirut to the 'Burbs, which will be available starting January 19. I will give more details soon.

It's got everything a good book should have mystery (why did Anissa write a new book?); tragedy (why did Anissa keep away from her blog for soooooo long?), and, of course, romance (Netflix, Netflix, Netflix).

So forget about Shakespeare, Austin and Dickens... there's a new player in town and she's way better *wink*. Don't believe me? Just read the synopsis below and judge for yourself!

Beirut to the 'Burbs
From the writer who brought you Miss Guided: How to Step into the Lebanese Glam Lane comes this hilarious book at surviving life in suburban America after 18 years of living it up in Beirut. Anissa Rafeh tells you all you need to know about essential life skills, like: 1. Microwaving (dinner in two minutes or less), 2. Knowing what’s playing on Netflix (every Friday is a holiday), and 3. How to shovel your driveway without chipping a nail (get someone else to do it). It’s clear that you can take the girl out of Beirut, but never Beirut out of the girl, especially when it comes to socializing, dating, shopping, and getting picture-perfect. Leaving her Louboutin’s back in Beirut, but forever clutching on to her Prada bag, she maneuvers the bumpy transition, taking detours and making wrong turns, but always remembering the number one rule to surviving the ’burbs: life’s a laugh!
