About the Book:
Parenthood is a blessing but can often send a person over the edge. Be honest, being a parent is not always sunshine and roses. Welcome to the Land of Insanity takes readers into a more humorous side of those crazy and out-of-control moments that all parents go through, in one form or another. Even if you are not a parent and need a good laugh, Welcome to the Land of Insanity is sure to bring a smile to your face and wash a bit of that crazy stress, caused my everyday insanity, away.

About the Author:
April Pohren has been an avid reader and aspiring writer since she was old enough to hold a pencil and could read. This passion turned into the venture of her book review blog Cafe of Dreams Book Reviews where she shares many books of varying genres, author interviews, guest posts, book reviews, Virtual Tours and several of other fun things. The newest adventure has been becoming a Tour Coordinator for Partners In Crime Tours. Dream Me to Death is April’s first digital short to be published with Trestle Press.

When not reading, reviewing and writing, April works as a freelance writer in between refereeing her two young children and preventing them from doing bodily harm to one another. April resides in Iowa with her husband, two children, three dogs and two cats. Yes, never a dull moment.
My Review:
Oh. My. God. I LOVED THIS. It’s not fiction, it’s not long (after all…it’s a SHORT story). But, MAN! Does it ever pack a whopper of fact into it! I’m a mom… INSANE mom. And every bit of what Ms. Pohren put into this fantastic short, was absolutely what I feel, think, or say. Again, I say OH MY GOD.

If you are looking for something to lighten the mood of parenting, or heck, even life in general, look no further. Ms. Pohren will have your cheeks hurting from smiling, or you’ll suffer sever whiplash as I did, from shaking your head in total, utter agreement with her thoughts and observations on insanity.

Thank you so much, Ms. Pohren, for hitting home with the craziness of parenting, in this 5 Books worthy short story! As a single mom, it’s definitely an INTENSELY INSANE experience. I couldn’t agree with you more! THANK YOU! Oh, and did I mention to you readers that this is fun and laughable, and I highly recommend it? No? Well, you must read this! It’s worth it!
