A Biggie Freaked My Week + Book Events!

Hey!

So, I have a new book coming out in about a week. And one of the most fun things about writing a book is doing a book tour and connecting with new people (especially meeting internet friends in real life). This is isn’t happening this time around…but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from connecting and sharing and having fun.

So I lined up a bunch of fun things for the launch (which you can find below). And if you’re not into book events, I made a big Freak My Week List for you…also below (because if you opened up this newsletter, you should still get something from it!).

Love you lots,
Jessica

P.S. April’s podcast is coming soon! It’s already recorded, and I know you’re really going to like it.


BOOK EVENTS!

April 27th • Ache Magazine

A free virtual event! I’ll be talking with fellow authors Karen Havelin (Please Read This Leaflet Carefully) and Lucia Osborne-Crawley (I Choose Elena) about writing and endometriosis. Panel lead by Ache editor Kirstie Millar.

I’ll be sitting outside in Hurilyali’s back garden in Charleston, SC from noon-6pm signing books. They’re doing a special veggie burrito bowl for the day and have the best smoothies (and wine, too). I’ll be wearing a mask! Huriyali is at 401 Huger Street.

First person to email me that you read this whole newsletter…I will send you a bookmark from Cosmic Peace Studios (they made them for the Know Your Endo launch). Since I still haven’t made a real footer yet, this seems like a fun one.
