I have some exciting news to share with you! I’ve just signed a book contract. Drum roll, please, for the title…
“Confessions of a Credit Junkie: Everything you need to know about credit cards to avoid the mistakes I made.”
It will be published by Career Press later this year, tentatively around December. So I’ll be writing at the speed of light! But you know what? I don’t even mind because I’ve worked hard to make this book happen.
I started this blog because I wanted to help y’all make informed decisions with credit cards. Heaven knows, some credit card issuers don’t make it easy to get all the facts you need. And I also wanted to give the inside scoop on credit cards without putting people to sleep.
I mean, let’s be honest. Credit card stuff can be on the dry side, right? But now, I have an opportunity to write an entire book in my snarky, but ever-so-charming style. As you can tell from the title, I’ll be sharing the sordid, yet entertaining, details of my “credit junkie” days. I’ve posted about this before in My Credit Card Debt Confession. I also did a webcast last week for College Week Live and shared a few of my credit card mishaps with high school students and their parents.
I truly believe that credit cards are a great financial tool, but only if you know what you’re doing. I even think it would be a good idea if everyone had to pass an exam, like a driver’s test, before using credit cards. Kind of a license to charge!
So, my goal is to write a book that helps you whether you’re looking for your first credit card, trying to rebuild credit, or trying to become a rewards ninja who takes free vacations or pays less for groceries.
So enough about me. Now, I’d like to thank all of you for spending time here and sharing comments. Thanks for being awesome!
In fact, you’re all so awesome, I’d really love your input about the contents of my book. Is there something you’d really like to know about credit cards? Or maybe something you wished you’d known before you ever used credit cards?
I’ll be writing “Confessions of a Credit Junkie” over the next three months, so feel free to leave suggestions when you get a chance.
