I'm so thrilled to be able to say that my precious book is now available globally via Waterstones, Amazon, WH Smith, Fishpond and (shortly) Barnes & Noble!



The publisher, New Haven, has been really great with me, allowing me the time to make the book perfect and understanding that I didn't want to compromise at all! This is exactly what I was visualising, perhaps even better, so I'm just really happy to say that I can share everything I know about making a good living from modelling without an agency in this book!

Many thanks to all the wonderful photographers who contributed creatively and wrote the back cover comments, including Perou, SHOWstudio, Jamila and Stephen Perry, and to Roswell Ivory and Bareskin Beauty for writing chapters.

You can keep an eye on it on your Amazon Wishlist, order a copy and leave a review here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0957517092/

Many thanks, and lots of love to all the "ugly" girls out there who aren't over 5'8", under 21 or unusually lucky, turned down by agencies but still carving their own paths as beautiful artists and CEOs of their own businesses. We can be whatever we want to be as long as we know how!

Thanks for all the support, everyone!

I have more good news! Every university in the UK has ordered a copy for their library, including Oxford and Cambridge, so if you know any students you can probably read it for free before buying your own copy!

There is also a copy in the British Library.

If you like the book, it would be great if you could share your experience on Amazon's review system here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0957517092/

I'm really excited by how well the book is being received!

Very cool. Congratulations
Thank you so much There is an honest and interesting review by Alex B in her blog now: http://alex-therealdoesnoteffaceitself.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/the-ugly-girls-guide-to-modelling.html?zx=6451d869c8fb6ab9 She gives her own advice for modelling and insights into the way the landscape is changing, too. Probably worth a read if you're a model, or considering ordering a copy.
