Update on the book: It's going to print!!!

I am SO excited to announce that my book is finally going to print!

The good folks at MPH Publishing just sent me a digital copy of the layout, and after minor editing here and there, the book is good to go!

To say I'm excited about this would be an understatement. I cannot believe this is actually happening. A part of me feels nervous, like there is so much more I'd wanna add or maybe there might be more changes I want to make. The other part of me is like, I really want to finally share this with the world!

The nerves are very real, though. Every writer I've spoken to has mentioned that they worry about critics all the time. I'm no stranger to criticism, but I've yet to develop thick enough skin to really let it roll off my back without any emotion. That being said, in the months that I've had to prepare, I've really been consciously making an effort to view criticism as a positive and necessary part of growing. Plus, it'll give me more to work on for the second edition of the book...(Hey, one can hope! Law of attraction and all that, right??).

More that anything, though, I've written this book as a way to combat ignorance and misconceptions about babywearing in Malaysia, and also as a basic guide to a parenting tool that I feel very passionate about. There's not one person that I've introduced babywearing to that hasn't found it useful! I hope that with the book, the joy of babywearing can be felt by more parents and caregivers.

Oh, and before I forget, I'm also very excited to announce that instead of "Adriana Thani's Guide To Babywearing", the title of the book will be "Babywearing Made Simple"...and it will also be the FIRST book in the Parenting Series by MPH Publishing!

I'm super excited to start off the Parenting Series with a book about Babywearing, which is hardly a mainstream parenting thing. Kudos to MPH for having the guts to do things differently. I look forward to sharing more information about upcoming books in the series - I can't confirm anything right now, but I think advocates in the natural parenting community will be pleased with what's coming ;)

My goodness, I can barely sleep these days I'm so excited! In the coming weeks, make sure you look out for contests and giveaways right here on this blog and also my other social media platforms (check them out in the top right corner of the blog, or just add @adrianathani on Twitter and Instagram). I'm also planning to have an awesome launch for the book, so keep an eye out for that as well.

I can't wait to be able to announce that the book is out!
