Actress, comedian, and syndicated columnist Pam Stone shares a selection of readers’ favorites from her column “I’m Just Saying” in her new book, I Love Me a Turkey Butt Samwich (CreateSpace, paperback, $14.95).

I Love Me a Turkey Butt SamwichIf you’ve ever considered leaving the rat-race of a big city to embrace small town living, actress and comedian Pam Stone has selected readers’ favorites from her syndicated column, “I’m Just Saying”, chronicling years of adventures on her “Funny Farm” in the upstate of South Carolina, to prep you for the journey. From laugh-out-loud hilarity to moments of poignancy, Stone weaves her essays in a style described as a cross between James Herriot and Garrison Keillor. So if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to spend the night in a small-town ER, select a jury pool from a group of citizens who all know each other, or try to sell a blow-up doll at a yard sale, let American Comedy Award winner Pam Stone introduce you to a part of the world you just might not want to leave . . .

About the author:
Weary of the hustle and bustle of life in Los Angeles, the former co-star of the ABC sitcom Coach (playing Coach Judy Watkins), stand-up comedian, and radio personality Pam Stone selected instead to live what she naively thought might be “the quiet life” in a town of 2,000 residents. What followed are the most honest-to-goodness (well, almost) accounts of this Upstate South Carolina Experience. Stone’s syndicated humor column is currently carried in several newspapers throughout North and South Carolina and was awarded First Place in Humor for the 2012 SC Press Association Awards. In her entertainment career, she has also earned two Gracie Awards for Outstanding Comedy Radio Broadcasting and is a recipient of the American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-Up. Stone lives with her partner Paul, two beloved terriers, Bonnie and Rose, assorted cats, horses, and one alarmingly territorial donkey.
