How unlucky can one lucky lady be?
Helen Clark won the lottery and lost everything. While it wasn’t the “mega” win, it was enough to change her life — quit her job as a starlet’s assistant, start a new business and have success. But another’s poor decisions brought that dream to an end, and Helen was left with less than nothing.
But Helen Clark is a lucky lady. With a job offer from a former colleague, Helen is now heading permanent placement at a temporary agency specializing in the insanity of the entertainment industry. As she rebuilds her life, her own past mistakes cast a shadow on her future and jeopardize her relationship with a proverbial unicorn. How can anyone so fortunate have this much bad luck? One thing that Helen has learned is to hold onto the good and let the bad pass because, at the end of the day, everything is temporary.
Real Reader Reviews:
★★★★★ Excellent Read… The characters are delightful which makes you want to keep reading to find out what is going to happen next…
★★★★★ Fun, brilliantly written romp through LA life… The writing is vulnerable and tongue in cheek at the same time, as it glides through the emotions and situations of life’s roller coasters.
★★★★★ Loved this book!… Sandra Ann Miller is refreshingly blunt in her depiction of the important things in life—true friendship, unconditional love, and faith in oneself.
Can anyone find a happy ending in L.A.?
The only 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.

Real Reader Reviews:
I would like to start by saying, “Thanks!!!” Your book was the reality check I needed. You confirmed some of the options I didn’t have. Like calling him and crying over year old spilled milk. Getting Over Him is a book that every woman should carry around with them like a tampon, because you never know when you will need it. I read this book in a day and not because it is short and salty, lol. It is because I could not put it down. You are a raw realist and this is what one needs after being dismissed from a nightmare. I realized yes this relationship was a nightmare indeed and that it was not the rose colored Romeo and Juliet glasses I had on during the brief affair. Every feeling I had you wrote it as if you were one of my girlfriends. Thanks again, I will read it again and again if the urge for this loser ever arise. I just had to reply regarding my sincere thanks for writing this book.
I just wanted you to know I just read your book from start to finish right now. It was amazing and I know it will help me=) I have been in a on/off relationship for the past 4 yrs w/my boyfriend..and now I know that I need to stay away from him. Well, thanks and I hope to read some more of your books!

More Than Just Break-Up Advice!
By A. Armstrong (LA) -★★★★★
I happened to read this book after I had been in a “bad relationship” with a terrible job, and was in the process of starting over and trying to find a better position – something that I would be with for a long, satisfying time. I found all of the steps (slightly modified to fit the content, obviously), to help me heal from my past job experiences and to have the self-confidence and chutspa to go out and land the job of my dreams. This book isn’t just about learning to heal from a bad relationship, it is about remembering how none of us deserve to be mistreated in the first place. Thanks, Ms. Miller – your book changed my life!
Brilliant, funny, insightful and fabulous!

Never too old to get over him
By Marilyn Perrin (Kingman, AZ) -★★★★★
Whether you’ve been “dumped” by a boyfriend or husband. “A Girlfriends Guide to Getting Over Him” hits the target. At 70, I wish her book was available 15 years ago during my divorce. I read it, loved it, and sent a copy to a friend who is going through it. Thanks Sandra for such a great tool.
Read, Absorb, Apply, Repeat
By Jordana Kotlus (O-V-E-R him in LA) -★★★★★
This book has the practical advice we all need to hear, blended with the author’s unique wit, also featuring some ingenious analogies. It’s a straightforward wake-up call to your self-esteem, reminding you to take care of #1 and forget about #2. Yes, I just called him #2. As in…you know. Ms. Miller’s book has a permanent place on my bookshelf!
Sandra says like it is – Hurray ! Truth Speaks Volumes
By Ellen Vaughn (Arizona) -★★★★★
Thank heaven for Sandra’s book. Celebrate and Cheer with an apple martini…finally author Sandra Miller has launched a most practical guide for getting over him. A must read for every woman regardless of relationship status.
I appreciate her blunt honesty and witty humor a perfect combination of strength and compassion. Sometimes we need to laugh at ourselves after we’ve learned these lessons (steps). Sometimes we need to hear these truths (steps) from friends and other times we need to speak these truths to friends who are in the midst of any one of these steps. This book helps to “couch” the honesty of perspective.
You know the saying…friends are like bras, close to your heart and always there for support. So show your support for the sisterhood by buying two copies one for you and one for a friend. You will laugh and cry at the “truth” between the covers…Sandra nails it!
Dumped, sad and surrounded by pizza boxes? Order this book, shower and go out and celebrate yourself!
By Melissa Joy Manning -★★★★★
I loved it. Ms. Miller has an amazing wit that makes a painful subject matter engaging and humorous. It’s not a caustic, cynical, “I hate men tome” but rather a loving, reverent account of how to take a negative interpersonal experience, spin it and come out better for having gone through it. Peppered with great anecdotes and insights, “A Girlfriend’s Guide To Getting Over Him” will make even the saddest dumped girl, crying in her pjs, unshowered and surrounded by takeout boxes, laugh and recover the joy of being a woman. Buy it. Read it. Get over it.
