2022 Summer Book Tour

See you at my author events in Stockholm, Brussels, DC, Virginia, New York, London, and Brighton!

I’m still wondering where half the year went already. We’re just 3 weeks away from June and that thought feels surreal. 

On this end, there have been a lot of transitions going on, including leaving one of my anchor clients to make space for opportunities in-line with my purpose. As with all transitions in life, it pushes us into that space of anxiety and uncertainty, but also possibility and expansion.

However, I’m focusing this newsletter on my book, IN EVERY MIRROR SHE’S BLACK, and the incredible journey it has been on so far. The paperback version drops on June 7 in the US/Canada and on June 9 in the UK/Commonwealth.

I’m beyond thrilled for the following upcoming in-person events in Stockholm, Brussels, DC/Northern Virginia, Richmond, New York, London, and Brighton. 

Hope to see you there!
