I Wrote This For You, Wherever You Are



We have some incredibly exciting news.

The I Wrote This For You books are now being published by Andrews McMeel, the same publisher as Rupi Kaur, Lang Leav, Amanda Lovelace and many, many more incredible poets. This means that I Wrote This For You, I Wrote This For You And Only You, I Wrote This For You: Just The Words and I Wrote This For You: 2007 – 2017 will all be available in more places across the globe. I have it on good authority that even here, on the tip of Africa where I live, stores have already ordered in excess of 2000 copies. That means that whether you’re in the Philippines, or England, or anywhere else, it should soon be easier than ever to find these books, for yourself or for a friend. I’d like to thank Kirsty, Allison, Holly and everyone else at Andrews McMeel for their hard work in putting this all together. You should also keep in mind that if you do manage to find an I Wrote This For You book with Central Avenue down the side, that’s about to become a collector’s item. Michelle and the team there helped us get to where we are today and I am forever thankful for her hard work and dedication.

 I can’t wait for you to see the new books, thank you for reading and for being you,

 Me.

Listen To The Kindest Voice In Your Head

We're busy working on several different things right now that don't allow us to update the blog regularly, so I'll be posting some of the letters that I send to my email list every now and again. 

__

Dear You, 

I just wanted to let you you to know that today, there will be difficult things to do but I also want you to know that you'll get through them. And I want you to know that there is not a single difficult thing that you’ve faced in your life so far that has stopped you from getting to this point. You have overcome worse and for that, I salute you. 

How do I know?

Well you’re reading this, and so I assume certain things about you. I assume you will find a pen with ink in it when you need it. I assume that some ridiculously stupid piece of admin will frustrate you almost to the point (or past the point) of tears but you will persist and even if you don’t actually get the thing done, you will move the boulder forward just a little bit, which is the only way boulders move. I know you’ll try again tomorrow. 

Get enough sleep tonight so you can do that and throughout your day remember: 

I make myself of me. And I listen to the best parts of me, and to the kindest voice in my head. 

As a way to say thank you for giving me some of your time, below is a link to a small book I put together called Two Words.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/yh5ep3ymwtf7bxe/TWO%20WORDS.pdf?dl=0​

Each page is only two words long. There are 50 pages. I hope you enjoy it and if you do, share this email with a friend and encourage them to sign up for more like it, here. 

Your kindness is the reason I get to do what I do. Thank you.

And thank you for your time, 

Me
