The Daughter-in-Law Rules by Sally Shields

What do Dr. Laura, Star Magazine, and Martha Stewart have in common? They all love The Daughter-in-Law Rules, written by Sally Shields and published by Outskirts Press.

We recently caught up with author Sally Shields during her whirlwind promotional efforts to learn about these latest accomplishments.

We understand Dr. Laura recently recommended your book to all her listeners. Congratulations!

Yes! Ever since Dr. Laura recommended the DIL Rules on her show, my book made it to #5 in the Parent/Adult Child category on Amazon.

And just last Friday you appeared on Martha Stewart Whole Living Radio with Emily Hoffman to discuss your book, The Daughter-in-Law Rules: 101 Surefire Ways to Manage (and Make Friends with) Your Mother-In-Law!

The interview went well, but because it was Sirius Satellite, they are not able to provide me with an MP3. Oh, well…

But that’s okay, because Star Magazine recently mentioned your book, too!


The DIL Rules was picked up as a Hot Book for Star Magazine’s Hot Sheet.

We can tell you’ve been busy. Just look at this email our marketing department received recently, all the way from Ireland. Looks like you’re going international!

I’m getting in touch with you from the Life with Orla Barry show in News Talk 106-108 FM, a national radio station in Ireland. We saw details of Sally Shields’ new book, The Daughter-in-Law Rules, and we’d love to have a chat with her about it on our show. If you could get in touch with me as soon as possible, I’d really appreciate it.

Kind Regards,
Helen McCormack.
Researcher – News Talk 106-108

Congratulations on all your success, Sally!
