I can’t believe it’s finally time to broadcast this to my world of friends, extended family and most importantly fairy followers. I’ve been filled with nerves all day and actually started to tear up typing this. I wondered how to tell you guys and more importantly when. After finalising some details this week and agreeing now is the best time to take you all on the rest of this journey with me I can finally announce…I’ve signed a MAJOR PUBLISHING DEAL. My book ‘Fairy Tales – A glittery guide to surviving with sparkle and sass‘ will be on shelves nationwide and online globally in early November. There will be a Book Tour around Ireland and a massive Book Launch in Dublin and things are set to get pretty crazy.
I didn’t want to simply create a blogging book, beauty bible or style guide. Everything I’ve achieved has lead to this point and this is a dream I’ve been working towards since the moment I began blogging. I wanted this venture to be unique and different to anything currently on the shelves, collating everything you guys have been wanting me to put on paper over the past two years. This book is designed to empower and help the wonderful world of women. I want to use the platform I’ve created to project positivity and ensure the content has depth. ‘Fairy Tales’ will include topics that can be difficult to discuss but areas I’m mailed about daily including coping with bad break ups, accepting and dealing with anxiety, learning to love your body, growing in a saturated industry, building a business from scratch as a one woman show, and dealing with online difficulties such as hate and negativity. The book also covers areas I’m frequently asked about including popular cosmetic procedures, some lighter more technological subjects like Photoshop and the best editing tools out there, my diet and fitness transformation and lots more.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I also want you all to have a certain level of input in the creative process. To come along with me on the photoshoots, show you snippets of the illustrations and design process and even be a part of the finished product. This book isn’t about me; it’s about the thousands of people who choose to follow me everyday, support and care about what I have to say. My following has grown so much over the past few months that getting back to you all with lengthy advice filled mails is near impossible, so this book also solves that problem. It’s also becoming more and more difficult to juggle writing a book, organising the entire behind the scenes of the finished product, looking after contracts and constant meetings, making sure my blog doesn’t suffer and updating social media in a normal manner. So I simply HAD to announce this ASAP! I hope this explains all of the projects I’ve been focused on lately and why the likes of my YouTube channel has taken a back seat. I will however be filming a YouTube video about my book answering the questions you have so please send them on. For now all I can say is I hope you’re as excited as I am, I love you and thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this possible.
