You may remember me telling you that I was involved in the writing of the fantastic book Knocked Up Abroad, well I’m really excited to tell you that there is a follow up book that has just been released! I thought I’d share a little about the book. I’m not in this one but there are some fantastic people with some amazing stories involved!
Read on to hear about Knocked Up Abroad Again, the contributors and how you can get your hands on a copy!
What is Knocked Up Abroad Again about?
Knocked Up Abroad Again is the second anthology in the Knocked Up Abroad series, and features stories from 25 different countries as written from the diverse perspectives of 26 women. Each mother, with her unique voice and from her perspective, describes the highs and lows of motherhood as she straddles the distance between what was once familiar with the reality of the challenges posed by her foreign environment.
This heartwarming, sometimes hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking collection of stories illustrates that the more we see, the more we learn about ourselves as human beings.
The adventuresome spirit of someone who leaves their home country is carried into how they end up expanding their family. Knocked Up Abroad Again: Baby bumps, twists, and turns around the globe will take readers on an exciting journey and will keep both experienced travelers and those who prefer to explore from the comfort of their couch entertained and wanting more.
Knocked Up Abroad Again provides a glimpse of the wide range of experiences women face when giving birth and raising their children in a foreign culture, language, and environment. Regardless of the cultural or medical approach, parents everywhere in the world worry about the same thing: the health of their unborn baby. In each of the unique stories in Knocked Up Abroad Again, the concepts of family and love translate into every language and are uniquely celebrated around the world.
Knocked Up Abroad Again: Baby bumps, twists, and turns is currently available only on Kickstarter in paperback and ebook formats.
