I was recently asked this question by several different people so I thought I’d opt for a public answer.
The book is completely out of my hands, out of my publisher’s hands and off to the printer. That’s very exciting. It should be ready to ship to bookstores across America in mid-September. The “launch” date is October 5th which is when bookstores across America should have the book in stock to sell to buyers who are eager to start a little beauty revolution (a girl can hope, right?).
We’re starting to get events scheduled. A few travel dates are set although the details are not nailed down yet. I know for sure that I am heading to Miami at the beginning of October and to NYC at the end of October. There will be a launch event in my hometown that we’re sorting out and hopefully a really cool yoga/ Beautiful You event in Charlotte at a great yoga studio there. We’ve also booked some collegiate Love Your Body Day/ Beautiful You events in mid-October. In November, we’ll have the Beautiful You workshop that I am so excited about (come join me!) and I’ll start to do salon parties- little living room parties where hosts will invites friends and family to hear a little about Beautiful You and then discuss body image or do an activity or two from the book. I am especially excited about those.
I am working on the book trailer and tackling the technology of it literally blows my mind, but I am having a ball with the photos that I’ve been sent (thank you! thank you! I wish I could use all of them but three minutes flies by so I might not be able to use them all the first go round). Can’t wait to have it together and ready to show you.
Speaking of technology, I’ve entered the 21st century with a Facebook page (I was a hold out.) and a Twitter handle. You can find me at both using my name. Please, come find me. I need some friendly faces for the journey.
