I’m really thrilled today to showcase the new edition of my book. It’s the small format paperback of The First Time but whilst we were at it, we thought we’d give it a makeover. So here it is, Losing It: How we popped our cherry over the last 80 years.*
One doesn’t always get the chance to thank people for their help so whilst I am here, I’d like to show my appreciation for the many people who helped with the new cover. Lots showed title choices and visuals to friends and got feedback for me. Others at work looked through bunches of mocked up covers and gave their (sometimes hilarious) responses. ‘She looks DEAD’ was one of my favorites. ‘Too hairy and too oral’ was another. My marketing man at Icon Books was brilliant at translating my mood boards and scribbled notes into a creative brief, picking a great illustrator and bobs your uncle, a book cover was born. I love it. I hope you do too.
