WORD: San Francisco author Beth Lisick is back to ‘Help’ you

San Francisco author Beth Lisick has a new book out called "Helping Me Helping You" from publisher HarperCollins. The former San Francisco Chronicle nightlife columnist’s latest work is about a year-long experiment in which she consults with multimillion-dollar-earning pros and national experts, not only reading their bestselling books but also attending their seminars and classes across America.

According to HarperCollins, "Helping Me" catalogues Lisick’s adventures as she gets proactive with "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" in Chicago, tries to get a handle on why "women are from Venus" in Atlanta, and in a highly comedic bout on the high seas of the Caribbean, she gamely sweats to the oldies on a weeklong "Cruise to Lose" with Richard Simmons. That sounds like hell, but at least it’ll provide a few laughs.

Lisick’s latest book comes after "Everybody Into the Pool," a collection of stories from her life released by Regan Books, the defunct imprint of HarperCollins once run by publishing diva Judith Regan. Lisick has several appearances slated for the Bay Area and beyond. This week, fans can catch her at the following engagements:

-- Wednesday, January 23, 7:30 pm, Capitola Book Cafe, 1475 41st Avenue, Capitola.
-- Thursday, January 24, 7:30 pm at the Diesel store, 5433 College Avenue, Oakland.

In addition to writing a weekly nightlife column for the Chronicle’s website SF Gate for eight years, Beth Lisick has published poems, essays and a short fiction collection. She’s currently working on still another book, as well as co-organizing the Porchlight Storytelling Series with her friend Arline Klatte

Lisick also notes on her website that her stage and screen collaborations with writer/performer Tara Jepsen have yielded some uncomfortable moments, "the most recent being a short film called ‘Diving for Pearls’ in which they appear unattractively naked."
