Welcome to my first newsletter! If you’ve been following my blog and Twitter feed you’ll know that I published my memoir, Cheat Play Live, in August this year to critical acclaim. It’s a story of sun, sea, sex, sobriety and spirituality that has surprised readers with its raw, and sometimes brutal, honesty. One reviewer said, “It’s everything Eat Pray Love should have been but wasn’t.” I’m going to take that as a win!

I have started work on the sequel, Dark Horses, which I hope to release next summer. More about that in newsletters to come.
To thank you for subscribing to my newsletter, I’m offering you some never-been-seen before stories: the men that got cut from the final draft of my book. When I was doing the final honing work on the book I had to leave a man or two on the cutting-room floor. I felt sad about leaving out some important moments in my life so now I get to release them into the world and you get to find out more about what it’s like to date young men as a fortysomething woman. I said I was honest!
You can download the book at the link below:

I’m currently working on a guide to living sober under my new brand Because You Can, which is a new iteration of my long-running BECAUSE I Can blog. I decided to turn the focus away from me and use my experiences to help you turn your life into a free and happy one.
The first Because You Can book is a guide to living without alcohol and it will be released on January 10, 2022, my three-year soberversary. It contains twelve steps towards a sober life you can achieve and maintain, my own sober diary from the early, most challenging days, and an extract from my memoir – all for just £1.99. It’s available for pre-order here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B09MSM5CD2
Here’s a sneak preview of the cover:

I will also be making an appearance at the Sober Breakthrough conference organised by Simon Chapple on January 2 2022, mixing with all the authors and influencers who are leading the charge on the sober lifestyle today. More details here: https://besober.co.uk/sobriety-breakthrough-live-2022/
