I’m super excited to share the cover of my next anthology, Body Talk; 37 Voices Explore Our Radical Anatomy. The book hits shelves August 18.
The cover was designed by Laura Williams. The cover art is by Kelly Bastow, who also has a handful of pieces in the collection. I’m in love with it.
I’m keeping today’s post and cover reveal pretty short and sweet in part because I wrote about this book in more depth over on Book Riot today.
You can preorder anywhere you buy books. Keep your proof of purchase, as I have a preorder thank you to share shortly. If you preorder from my indie, Read Between The Lynes, save your proof of purchase, as I’ll be holding a special giveaway just for you closer to release date–you can put in the notes, too, if you’d like me to sign it for you.
It’s time to bare it all about bodies!
We all experience the world in a body, but we don’t usually take the time to explore what it really means to have and live within one. Just as every person has a unique personality, every person has a unique body, and every body tells its own story.
In Body Talk, thirty-seven writers, models, actors, musicians, and artists share essays, lists, comics, and illustrations—about everything from size and shape to scoliosis, from eating disorders to cancer, from sexuality and gender identity to the use of makeup as armor. Together, they contribute a broad variety of perspectives on what it’s like to live in their particular bodies—and how their bodies have helped to inform who they are and how they move through the world.
Come on in, turn the pages, and join the celebration of our diverse, miraculous, beautiful bodies!
