Message to My Girl – Media

“Message to My Girl” has barely been out a week and is already being reprinted! There are still copies around however so check out your local bookseller if you would like a copy (NZ); there are also a number of online booksellers who have it listed in NZ (Mighty Ape), Australia (quite a number when I checked) and the UK (Book Depository, ships worldwide).

We celebrated the book release with a party on Monday night where we had an opportunity to tell the story of the book over lovely food and wine. I was grateful for the opportunity to thank David Williams for collaborating with Jared on this project and for doing such an amazing job, and Allen & Unwin NZ for seeing its potential and taking on the publishing. Elise charged about the cafe charming people, completely oblivious to the reason for the party – it will be a good story to tell her one day.

It has been an overwhelming few days with lots of media coverage: Jared would be thrilled.

Here are some of the bits and pieces in the media over recent days if you are interested:

“Sunday” (TVNZ) on Sunday 27th September (11 minutes)


Articles in NZ Herald on Saturday 26th September

Thank you for following our story and for your enthusiasm for “Message to My Girl”.

We look forward to hearing what you think!

Hannah & Elise

    Hi Hannah and Elise,

    This is wonderful – such a fantastic response already the book only came out on Mon!! What an answer to prayer and what a great blessing to everyone who reads it especially for Elise 🙂

    Whew, that looks like intense reading. Might have to save that book for a rainy day alone. Also Hannah, you come across as such a lovely person, sharing your journey through your grief is such a gift to us all. The love between all of you is so easy to see.

    Amazing beautiful and inspiring coverage in the media – book sold out on Book Depository in Australia! Ordered 3 copies on order from Booktopia. So heartened & saddened of course by your interviews and deeply moved by God’s hand on this book. Thank you Hannah & Elise, who is so so gorgeous and looks like Jared to me!!
