As many long-time WIMN’s Voices readers know, I spent the bulk of 2009 - 2010 writing Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV, which will be published by Seal Press on Nov. 1.

Until then, you can learn more about the book at the newly launched RealityBitesBackBook.com, where you can read excerpts, access a press kit, get info about lectures and workshops on themes addressed in the book, and more. Whatever brings you to the site, my guess is you’ll stay for the “Fun With Media Literacy” section, where you’ll find reality TV Mad Libs, reality TV drinking games, a Backlash Bingo game you can play while watching your favorite shows, media literacy advice for parents, and deconstruction guides, among other activities and resources.

Today also marks the debut of Reality Bites Blog, which I’ll be writing at the site to pick up where the book leaves off. I’ll accept guest posts there as well, so feel free to pitch me story ideas related to the way gender, race, class, consumerism, product placement, sexuality, beauty, and more are represented within the genre.

I am deeply proud of Reality Bites Back, and I hope you’ll pre-order a copy today.

Don’t take my word for it… listen to Melissa Harris Lacewell, columnist for The Nation and MSNBC analyst, who says, “Reality Bites Back is an extraordinary gift to critical media literature…This should be required reading for every American girl and woman.” Or take it from GRITtv’s Laura Flanders, ColorLines’ Rinku Sen, Bitch magazine’s Andi Zeisler, Media Education Foundation’s Sut Jhally, and other journalists, activists and scholars, who all offer advance praise for the book.

If you’d like to review Reality Bites Back, do a Q&A, run an excerpt, book a TV or radio segment, or the like prior to its Nov. 1 pub date, contact me and I’ll be happy to work out the logistics with you.

This site was built and designed by the talented and generous Anita Sarkeesian and Patrick St. John. I cannot recommend them highly enough for your web development needs.

Hope you enjoy RealityBitesBackBook.com. Let me know what you think about the site!

    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
