Laura Roberts can leg-press an average-sized sumo wrestler, has nearly been drowned off the coast of Hawaii, and tells lies for a living. She is the founding editor of Black Heart Magazine, the San Diego Chapter Leader for the Nonfiction Authors Association, and publishes whatever strikes her fancy at Buttontapper Press. She currently lives in an Apocalypse-proof bunker in sunny SoCal with her artist husband and their literary kitties, and can be found online at Buttontapper.com.
Blurring the lines between fact and fiction, Laura has penned the alphabetical travel guides Montreal from A to Z and San Diego from A to Z, offbeat writing guides A Cheater’s Guide to NaNoWriMo and Confessions of a 3-Day Novelist, and the satirical adventure tale, Ninjas of the 512. She is also the editor of the collection Haiku for Lovers, and the forthcoming anthology Everything I Need to Know About Love I Learned from Pop Songs (February 14, 2016).

"Top 5 Reasons You Can't Get Laid in Montreal" is a very short work that borrows from the author's upcoming novel, "Naked Montreal." Despite having never been to Montreal, not speaking French and not desiring to get "laid" by anyone north of Minneapolis, I found this sample more than whetted my appetite for the novel. The top five reasons are funny enough, but it's the additional list at the end that killed me. Don't blush if you find this under the sex section. Roberts plugs enough good-natured humor in these brief pages to satisfy readers in any genre.
