Ann Douglas has just finished writing a new parenting book, Parenting Through the Storm: How to Handle The Highs, The Lows, and Everything In Between -- a book for parents who have a child who is struggling with a mental health, neurodevelopmental, or behavioural challenge. The book will be published by HarperCollins Canada in January of 2015.
And speaking of upcoming book releases.... As you may recall, in 2013, HarperCollins Canada acquired Canadian rights to Ann's bestselling The Mother of All Books series. In mid-2014, HarperCollins Canada will release redesigned editions of The Mother of All Pregnancy Books and The Mother of All Baby Books, the two flagship titles in this highly popular Canadian pregnancy and parenting book series. The Mother of All Toddler Books and The Mother of All Parenting Books are scheduled for re-release in early 2015. A three-book e-book bundle featuring The Mother of All Pregnancy Books, The Mother of All Baby Books, and The Mother of All Toddler Books was published by HarperCollins Canada in April.
Ann is speaking at a number of parenting and mental health conferences this year: on topics ranging from raising a mentally healthy child to mindful parenting. Please get in touch if you are planning an event and you are looking for a parenting speaker for either a small-group workshop or a keynote address. Ann would be delighted to work with you to come up with the ideal topic for your conference or other special event. If you're looking for some inspiration, you'll find a list of her most popular parenting and mental health presentation topics for 2014-15 right here.
And, finally, 2013 was a year of amazing personal transformation for Ann. She achieved her goal of losing 100 lbs. by her 50th birthday (which she celebrated in December). She is continuing to blog about her progress and the powerful link between mental health and physical health at BraveNewBlog.net. She has also written an article about her journey of transformation (as much mental as physical) for the October 2014 issue of Canadian Living magazine.
