My first e-book part of Shebook’s soft launch

Standard
Shebooks is an exciting new e-book publisher of great stories by women, for women. The focus is long-form journalism, short memoir, and short fiction by some of the best writers in the US and beyond, both well known and yet to be discovered.

As part of their soft launch, my true story, The Nigerian-Nordic Girl’s Guide to Lady Problems, a witty look at culture and healthcare, is currently available on Amazon. The cover art by Alicia Buelow is gorgeous, and those of you familiar with Nigerian signage will recognize the title. Do a search for “shebooks” to find other titles by writers like Hope EdelmanSuzanne Paola, Marion Winik and shebooks Editorial Director Laura Fraser.

Soon you’ll be able to subscribe to Shebooks and receive new stories on the web, on e-readers like Kindle and nook, and on Shebook’s own e-reading app. Each is between the length of a magazine article and a book—long enough to immerse yourself for a plane ride, or a good read before bed.

NOTE TO WRITERS: Shebooks has partnered with Good Housekeeping to sponsor a memoir about mothers contest!
