Meanwhile, below is more on Jasmin's book and a short book trailer. We look forward to seeing you all on March 5th!
I'm excited to announce that my memoir, Always Too Much and Never Enough, is coming out next week, on February 2, through Penguin Random House's Berkley.
From the extra pounds and unrelenting bullies that left her eating lunch alone in a bathroom stall at school to the low self-esteem that left her both physically and emotionally vulnerable to abuse, Jasmin Singer's struggle with weight defined her life.
Most people think there's no such thing as a fat vegan. Most people don't realize that deep-fried tofu tastes amazing and that Oreos are, in fact, vegan. So, even after Jasmin embraced a vegan lifestyle, having discovered her passion in advocating for the rights of animals, she defied any "skinny vegan" stereotypes by getting even heavier.
More importantly, she realized that her compassion for animals didn't extend to her own body, and that her low self-esteem was affecting her health. She needed a change. By committing to monthly juice fasts and a diet of whole, unprocessed foods, Jasmin lost almost a hundred pounds, gained an understanding of her destructive relationship with food, and finally realized what it means to be truly full.
Told with humble humor and heartbreaking honesty, this is Jasmin's story of how she went from finding solace in a box of cheese crackers to finding peace within herself.
The book is available wherever books are sold (here's the Amazon link). I also narrated the audiobook, so if you're more into being read to, be sure to download a copy (the MP3 will be available for download on 2/2). I go into a lot more about the book on my website, www.jasminsinger.com, and you can also watch my short book trailer.
I'll be on tour with my book for the bulk of this year, and I hope you can make it to one of the events! Below are a list of upcoming readings and signings, and there are a lot more on the docket, so keep an eye out on my event page, and be sure to "like" my author page on Facebook for up-to-date info. (I'm on Twitter, too.)
So read on! And in the meantime, don't forget to catch me each week on the Our Hen House podcast, and each month on the Teaching Jasmin How to Cook Vegan podcast!
Thank you so much for being so amazing!
