The Bad Hair Day anthology began with a call for humorous fiction stories about one of those days when life just doesn’t go according to plan. In fact, we wanted stories about a day as horrible as a bad perm or hair that turns green, unintentionally. Yet the female protagonist works though the challenging day with humor, stubbornness, and attitude.
The stories in this volume are an uplifting diversion for those days when Murphy’s Law rules. We can’t always avoid bad hair days, but laughter is truly the best defense.
So if you’re having one of those bad days, get out that shaker of margaritas and curl up with A Shaker of Margaritas: A Bad Hair Day and let the laughter begin.
