New Anthology 'Shame Prom' Featuring Bestselling Memoirist Monica Holloway

Visionary Co-Editors Hollye Dexter and Amy Ferris Create 'Dancing at the Shame Prom' to Acknowledge and Let Go of Shame

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 16, 2012) - With the press abounding with stories of shame and embarrassment, bestselling author Monica Holloway will be among twenty-six extraordinary women -- writers, artists, and activists -- to offer up their most funny, sad, poignant, miraculous, life-changing, and jaw-dropping experiences, in the effort to help acknowledge and let go of what holds us all back. The anthology, "Dancing at the Shame Prom: Sharing the stories that kept us small" (Seal Press), will be available for sale September 11, 2012 and is available for preorder on Amazon. (

Boasting the tag line, "where everyone is invited to dance," Shame Prom is about flaunting the secrets that have made a person feel small so that they can stand up straight, let the shame go, and finally -- decisively -- move on with his or her life.

Says Holloway on her inclusion into the anthology, "I am so proud to be part of something which takes a magnifying glass to such a challenging moment in all of our lives, making it spirited, infectious and I absolutely believe that the truth about our most embarrassing moments will set us free."

ABOUT MONICA HOLLOWAY: Monica Holloway is the bestselling author of "Cowboy & Wills," a Mother's Choice Award's Gold recipient, and the critically acclaimed author of the memoir "Driving With Dead People," described by Newsweek as "unforgettable," Glamour christened "a classic," and the Washington Post deemed "irresistible."

ABOUT DANCING AT THE SHAME PROM: The Shame Prom is all about sharing/writing our deepest shame, and in the process offering a hand, a shoulder, a box of Kleenex, tremendous hope, a bit of enlightenment, a bucket of wisdom, and unyielding courage so others who have lived with their own shame realize they too have the option to leave it behind, move on, and yes, YES... let it go.
