Seeking Bloggers to Join Blog Tour for Destiny Allison's Book The Romance Diet

Destiny Allison first toured with WOW! Women on Writing after the publication of her first book, Shaping Destiny: A Quest for Meaning in Life and Art. She followed Shaping Destiny with two novels, Pipe Dreams and Bitter Root, and is back with a new memoir, The Romance Diet: Body Image and the Wars We Wage on Ourselves. Her blog tour starts Jan. 11, 2016, and we are currently seeking interested bloggers to host Destiny during her four-week tour. If your blog is selected for the tour, you will receive an e-book to review, and Destiny is also available for interviews and guest blog posts on the topics of body image, invisibility, healthy and equal relationships, long-term effects of trauma, and the effects of cultural norms on women's self-esteem. You can preview the first three chapters of The Romance Diet here.

About The Romance Diet: Body Image and the Wars We Wage on Ourselves:

Brave, raw, and unflinchingly honest, this book is a weight loss journey, a love story, a heart beating loudly on the page. Every day we battle against something--injustice, our spouses, our weight. Seldom do we acknowledge the real wars we wage. Repressing feelings and silencing our voices, we suffer under the surface, attributing emotional distress and unwanted pounds to the inescapable effects of hormones or age.
But weight gain, anxiety, and marital difficulties aren't always so easy to explain.

In her poignant and touching memoir, Allison doesn't offer recipes, exercise tips, or advice. Instead, she shows us how to stand up, express what we want, and develop empathy for ourselves and the people we love. In doing so, she provides invaluable insight for those seeking to lose weight, save a marriage, or make a significant life change.

Includes a Readers Guide.
