(AUGUSTA, ME) Oct. 15, 2014 – A hilarious compilation of “I can’t believe that happened” and “the same thing happened to us” stories from forty-six diverse writers, Clash of the Couples debuts on November 3, 2014 in both print and eBook format on Amazon and other popular retailers.

Taking a cue from the first couple to ever bicker over something as petty as a piece of fruit, Clash of the Couples is a new anthology featuring a collection of absurd lovers’ quarrels and relationship spats. Couples just starting their journeys and those who have been together “forever” will relate to dozens of short stories running the “one said, the other said” gamut—from disagreements over furniture, to who gets the last beer, to where to store the placenta (yes, you read that right).

The book has been endorsed by a number of humor and publishing heavyweights, including Josh Blue, comedian and winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and Abby Heugel, popular humorist and blogger at Abby Has Issues.

“If you’re looking for a fun read, check out Clash of the Couples. I could relate to the couples in this honest and hilarious collection of modern relationship tales. Clash of the Couples bursts with the real stuff that couples fight about and will make you laugh while shaking your head at the ridiculousness of it!” said Blue.

Heugel shares his sentiments. “Married, single, destined for spinsterhood—it doesn’t matter what angle you come at this book from, you will find something that you can relate to. And you will laugh, because even if you can’t relate to that particular situation, you’ll just be glad that it happened to somebody else.”

Published by Blue Lobster Book Co., Clash of the Couples will be released on November 3, 2014. The title will be available on Amazon, B&N, Apple, and other places where books are sold. Visit the book’s official page for more information or for instant updates follow along on Facebook.
