A lot of you have been wondering why my book, Radical Self Love, was only available for a month. There have been a lot of sad face emojis in my Instagram comments, too! After all, that wasn’t my original plan: I intended on selling it forever!
I am delighted to announce that the reason for the short run of my book is that Radical Self Love has been acquired by Hay House! I am so thrilled to become a member of the esteemed Hay House Family!
The book has been revised, and will be published in February 2016. Yes, you will be able to buy it in bookstores (ahhhhh!) and there will be a Kindle version available as well!
I cannot express to you the deep joy and gratitude I feel at becoming a part of the publishing house started by Louise Hay, one of my all-time heroes. It is incredible to be joining the ranks of Dr Wayne Dyer, Suze Orman, Marianne Williamson, Doreen Virtue, and my dear friends Gabrielle Bernstein and Kris Carr.
This whole situation has been a miracle and a blessing. I have been talking a lot lately about the importance of choosing yourself, backing yourself, and acting from a place of radical self belief. Stop hoping that someone will pluck you out of obscurity — we need to create our own opportunities!
I took a risk and decided to self-publish Radical Self Love because I believed that it was a message women needed to hear… And I was right. The book was a #1 New Release and #1 on Amazon’s Movers and Shakers, and hit #27 in the entire Motivational Self-Help category! The hashtag features over 400 photos of the book in countries all around the world.
On the day my first proof arrived, Hay House reached out and said they wanted to publish the book. We had an amazing meeting that filled me with joy. (This was that day.) Since then, we’ve received enquiries from Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic about the foreign rights… And the excitement keeps growing.
It has been an incredible whirlwind, and it all happened because I believed in my message enough to do something about it.
“Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Whatever you want to do, you can do. Just start. Stop waiting for perfect conditions: there is no such thing! Be bold and create the thing you dream about. Don’t be dissuaded if progress seems slow. There is no such thing as an “overnight success” — I have been writing on this blog for nine years! Don’t be shy about what you have to offer. Talk about what you do. Trust that whatever you create will reach the right people, that the word will spread, that you will discover your babes by the millions! You can have and do whatever you want: you do not need to ask for permission from anyone. Begin today!
I love you, and I believe in you! You can have and do whatever you want.
As for the book: I’ll be keeping you updated as we progress! We’ve already been through it and done major edits. The cover is going to be tweaked a little bit, and so is the title. Hay House have been a DREAM to work with, and I’m so excited to work with them to bring this book to the masses!
As always, thank you so much for your support! You mean the world to me!
A trillion kisses,
