Exciting News!

books, notebooks

A few months ago a publishing house contacted me with a book idea. When I first read the email I thought they were just sort of interested in my feedback and/or to write an article to include in the book. But after a bit more email correspondence, it was clear that what they were really looking for was an author and wondered if I had any interest in writing a book.

Do you know how many times I had to re-read the actual sentence to make sure I was reading it correctly?! A LOT.

After more email correspondence and phone meetings and a few more emails, the deal was done. It was all rather quick and tidy actually… but then there was about a week and a half before I knew for sure which almost killed me. It’s that excitement that you’re not actually supposed to be excited about but can’t really help it either. And then one afternoon I checked my email and there it was. Finalized. I was going to write a book! I was so happy and excited, a few tears of joy may have slipped out of my eyes and down my cheeks.

And then I my very next thought was OHMYGOD I HAVE TO WRITE A BOOK!!

What I’m really excited about is the idea for the book and just how perfectly it aligns with my style philosophy. I mean I don’t know how many times I’ve said aloud “Flaunt your assets and disguise your flaws”…. and when I expressed that in a meeting with the publisher she said, “That’s how I found you”.

So obviously, the book is about style and the tentative title is :

Rock Your Assets: How to Dress your Body Type to Become a Fashion Goddess

And I have a LOT of work ahead of me.

Happy Friday Lovecats
