Update on the book

The book's coming along better than I expected (thanks to my kick-a$$ editor who is always there to answer the numerous silly questions I may have. Patience of a saint, that one). Some days are better than others - just today I knocked out 2.5 draft chapters...which is more than what I've done over the last 3 days (Sunday is off day, give chance la please).

Anyhoo, now I'm starting up the marketing and other miscellaneous non-writing tasks for the book. Non-writing tasks is a misleading term here, though, because you best believe that engaging product sponsors requires a fair bit of writing! By the way, if you make and/or sell baby carriers, feel free to get in touch with me at AdrianaGlamMama@gmail.com to inquire about sponsorship. I'll send you details on how you can get your carriers into the book :) And to those whom I have already e-mailed, I hope to hear from you soon!

Another non-writing task has been the babywearing model search. Thanks to all the people that shared the information on their respective social media platforms, I've received quite a few submissions already (we've got some pretty hot babywearing mamas out there yo) but I hope to receive even more as the closing date for submission draws near. Quick, send in your submissions ASAP! I'm really excited about choosing the models and having the photoshoot. This has been one of the more fun aspects of writing the book for sure.

One other fun thing about writing this book is looking back at my own old babywearing photos...

...which is where I found this treasure of a shot. Seeing this photo again made me smile and tear up at the same time. I'm so happy that I had many years of carrying my children "close enough to kiss" but so wistful that I'm no longer wearing them. Seeing this image strengthens my resolve to make these moments happen for all parents, and I can't wait for my book to be a part of that mission.
