Syndicated columnist and Advice Goddess blogger Amy Alkon expands her plans for world domination by penning Revengerella: One Woman’s Battle to Beat Some Manners into Impolite Society, true stories of the spectacular ways a self-described “manners psycho” pranks cell phone abusers, telemarketers, spamsters, road hogs, and other bad guys out of being rude. McGraw-Hill will publish and the book was sold by Betsy Amster at Betsy Amster Literary Enterprises.

The late Cathy Seipp dubbed the firey redheaded writer Revengerella and Alkon wrote a good deal of the proposal and sample chapters while keeping Cathy company through chemo, etc. The book is dedicated to Seipp.
