Thursday 8th March 2018 - International Women's Day and the title reveal of my book:
'More Than Just Pretty', coming June 2018 with SPCK Publishers by Jessie Faerber
YAYYYYY (can you tell I'm excited?!)
The pages are written.
The editing is in process.
The cover is coming soon.
The calligraphy is being designed.
The author is buzzing.
The book is out June 2018.
But what about YOU (i.e. the reader)? Are you ready for a book that speaks honestly and openly about life as a girl in the 21st century? Are you ready to be encouraged and challenged? Are you ready to laugh, maybe cry, hope and dream? Are you ready to take a look at your true self?
I have kept you in mind throughout the journey of this book coming to life.
I believe I have kept my promise to you that this book is for the girl who is trying to figure out who she is, the girl who looks in the mirror and hates what she sees, the girl of faith or of no faith. It's for the girl who doesn't know her true value, beauty or purpose. It's for the crazy girl, quiet girl, confused girl, worried girl, happy girl. You name it!
'More Than Just Pretty' doesn't shy away from our culture of social media and unattainable beauty standards. It doesn't shy away from the fact that society so often focuses on our image. It doesn't shy away from my story about my own hurt, pain and insecurity.
It explores what all of this means when our identity is as God's masterpiece.
Bring on the book written for every girl, by a very normal girl, because every girl's story matters.
Together, let’s make ‘More Than Just Pretty’ a reality and normality for girls, not just a statement and not just a book title.
Coming JUNE 2018.
