I am so proud to introduce you to my baby girl, I’d Rather Be Short. Some of you may already know her and some of you may not.

She’s a very special project I’ve been working hard on over the last year. She started on the blog, then found her way into the Penguin/Plume hands. Now she’s a real live book.

She is filled with 100 reasons why it’s awesome to be small. It all started because I wanted someone to tell me these things, and through the process of creating the book, I’ve internalized those reasons and now I get to share them with you. This concept is just one version of the same story: embrace who you are.

I’d Rather Be Short is going to be on shelves this November. What’s better than seeing buying it in stores? Pre-ordering. You can pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound and Books-A-Million.

Pre-orders are important for many reasons, but the early sales help determine the fate of the book. I’ll get to make more books and it will be sold in more places if there is an enthusiastic push early on.

I’m so thrilled to finally get to show you the cover and update you on the process. I can’t thank you all enough for your support throughout this exciting journey.
