Inspired by her blog, the author has crafted a one-year account of the life of the Queen of Sky. As you might expect, the tone is modern, hip, light-hearted, fun-loving, direct, personal--and sometimes rambling. The peccadilloes of passengers, pilots, fellow flight attendants are exposed, along with the trials and tribulations of life on the airways, embracing commuting, bidding systems, the crew base, and selling food on board. Interspersed with these revelations are various experiences, including tidbits of `romance and sleaze' during layovers in South America and Europe.
Although a fictional account, this irreverent and entertaining book realistically and humorously portrays the modern lot of the US-based airline flight attendant. Sit back and enjoy! JW -- Airways Magazine, December, 2006
From the Author
I hope you all enjoy my book! It's totally different from anything you have seen before. I've even included some photos in some of the book's blog posts, just like in a real blog! In order to stick to my artistic vision (the novel-in-blog-format), I had to self-publish.
The book is based on the original first eleven months of my blog...but be forewarned, it is fiction, and the ending is not how things turned out in real life.
Email me (email is on my blog) or message me on MySpace for more info about the book. I'm /queenofsky on MySpace. You can also Google me for more info.
Thanks for supporting a fired blogger!
-Ellen aka Queen of Sky

The book came in at the perfect time. I was having my own problems, but picked this book up, and it literally did help me. It made me realize that I am not the only person on this earth with problems, and she is just an everyday person that has helped so many people by making this book. So please, do yourself a favor and buy this book. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Wanna get the scoop on what goes on behind closed doors of the crews that fly the friendly skies? Then you must buy this book!!!
I remember reading this when it was on her blog - and it's was still funny the 2nd time around. ;)
Her trips and escapades are very interesting and I couldn't put the book down after I started reading it! All in all a good read.
The good part is that the author came across as a very genuine person that you couldn't help but like, and I could identify with many of her travel experiences.
