1) I am no longer unemployed.... because I've been offered the best job in the world! I finalized a BOOK DEAL with Penguin, based on Mirror Mirror OFF the Wall.
I've been working to make this deal happen since a few weeks before my wedding (and I know a few of you have already caught word of the news), but nothing felt final until I deposited my first (modest) advance check in the bank. That happened last week, and I've been a little dazed ever since. I feel like I can finally call myself a writer. Authoring a book has been a lifelong dream of mine, so I am incredibly grateful for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

gratefully guzzle from it every day for motivation!
2) ABC's 20/20 has signed on to produce a segment on my year without mirrors.
|Robin Roberts is amazing. I will be speechless.|
3) Finally - THE PARTY IS ON!! (And you are ALL invited!)
San Francisco Women's Building, to celebrate the end of my year without mirrors. I'm partnering with About-Face to make this an ALL-OUT BODY-POSITIVE BONANZA. We've invited other Bay Area organizations to the event, so there will be lots of fun, playful, body-positive activities and exhibits. I'm springing for booze and munchies, so fun will be had by all. At midnight we'll toast to my adventurous year, and I'll go check my badass-self out in a mirror for the first time in ages. I couldn't have gotten through this year without the support and encouragement from this blog community, so please join me if you're able! If you're interested in attending, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll add you to the official evite so you can get all the details.
Again, THANK YOU, ALL OF YOU, for reading this blog and supporting me in this journey. It's not over yet!
