SAME ink is an independent imprint. Create your own Yes! Write your own wrongs.



The only thing more annoying than being stuck in traffic, the blinding blitzkrieg of paps, or a chain-smoking vegetarian’s health rant, is having every you ever wanted in the palm of your hand, and the rug swiftly pulled out from under you.

El Patterson’s dreams were on the verge of coming true when a tragic twist of fate took it all away. Facing the official end of her early thirties, with not much to show for it, El has to find her footing and the guts to go after the life she really wants.

A SASSY LITTLE GUIDE TO GETTING OVER HIM – 10 Steps to Heal Your Heart After an Unhappy Ending (SAME Ink) is a “reality check you can cash”. Los Angeles-based writer Sandra Ann Miller mixes wit with wisdom gained from her own unhappy endings to help the newly single put the pain into amusing perspective.

The Guide’s 10 Steps provide the survival skills required to make it through a breakup with dignity and pride intact.  Laugh-out-loud humor is tempered with compassion as the reader is reminded that she determines her fate…not the man who broke her heart.  A SASSY LITTLE GUIDE TO GETTING OVER HIM is short, sweet and to the sharp point of how to manage the hurt — as well as the burgeoning insanity — and start the healing.

“A wonderful and helpful guide that every woman should have on her bookshelf.  The ten steps are right on the mark.  A Sassy Little Guide to Getting Over Him is a funny and empowering antidote for a broken heart.”
