Ooooooooooooooohhhh mama what a day!
I have (as those of you who are on FB/ Twitter or signed up to my mailing list) been launching of my third book – Reaching for the Moon, the girl's version of my much-loved first book, Moon Time. (Be sure to read to the bottom of this post to find out how you can get your FREE e-copy!)
WOWSER the response has been tremendous! The steam is fizzing off my computer! And my brain! I'm feeling short of breath and my heart is racing - in a good way! Within an hour it had been requested for review for a US parenting magazine!
It's so funny how different it is to the launch of Moon Time. My very first book launch. A bit like the first time one has sex (yes, it does all have to come back to sex on here, that's how we roll at Dreaming Aloud!) - messy, feeling very exposed and not very coordinated.
What amazes me is how much social networking has changed since the last launch, just how BIG Facebook is... and how much more connected I am to so many beautiful, connected women (how much I have changed), and how much of an appetite there is out there for my work. It is truly humbling. And exciting.
There are three responses I am getting
1) "Oh wow, I've been waiting for a book like this..."
2) "I've been waiting for YOU to write this book - at LAST, I've been asking for at least a year!"
3) "Another book? Seriously... Which one is this again?"
This is Reaching for the Moon - a girl's guide to her female cycles.Written especially for girls aged 9-14 as they anticipate and experience their body's gradual changes. This has been requested time and again by mothers, godmothers and aunts who wanted a gentle, loving, soulful introduction to women’s cycles for the special girls in their lives.
80 page paperback or Kindle.
Beginning with an imaginary journey into the red tent, a traditional place of women's wisdom, some of the gifts and secrets of womanhood are imparted in a gentle, lyrical way including:
* The secrets of the moon.
* The secrets of our cycles.
* The gift of self-care.
Along with practical advice on:
* Preparing for her first period.
* Choosing menstrual products.

Reaching for the Moon is a nurturing celebration of a girl’s transformation to womanhood.
