This Book’s About To Blow Up

They say every writer is allowed two exclamation points in her career. I'm going to go ahead and blow them both on this sentence: My first book, Big Girl, is coming out on January 5, 2016!!
Worth it.
This book is a memoir chronicling my history with food and my body — and all the other parts of my story that led me into a tangled wood and, finally, out of it. It's about family and friendship, relationships and trauma, being a late bloomer and being okay with that (for the most part). In this book, I've shared the stories I never dared write about, or even speak aloud. Also, it's funny! I hope!
In celebration of Big Girl's launch, we're giving away five signed advance copies right here. If you're so inclined, I welcome you to pre-order a copy (or, like, seven) at the retailer of your choice. But if you'd like to put your name in the running for one of these signed freebies, just enter your email address:
The giveaway will be open for two weeks, starting now. If you're selected, I'll inscribe your copy with a little note and send it on its way. Then, I'll stare out the window and worry about whether or not you're going to like it. But I promise to try not to email you and ask. I'll be cool.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Open to legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States (excluding Rhode Island), 18 years or older and over the age of majority in jurisdiction of residence at time of entry. Ends 12/28/2015 at 11:59 pm E.T. For Official Rules, click here or go to Void where prohibited.
