Thank you for reading and sending me lots of messages to share how the book resonated with you. I’ve been working on writing the e-book and just making sure I own the copyright to the book.
For people who have been asking for a life update!
Marco and I have been getting ready to leave Croatia. We will then be going to Italy for 2+ months before heading back to Singapore for a visit.
Thank you for sending all of your love and well-wishes.
Once again, sending love to everyone back home in Singapore.
Update Sept 2021: I’m re-writing some chapters and adding new ones!! There will be some proof reading that has to happen, an illustrator who will help me with my book cover, and then ill get started on boring admin stuff like copyrighting and blah
For those who are waiting for updates please check my IG for future ones! There will also be chances to get free copies of the ebook if you follow me there 😘 ig handle is janetoryl
Update: “Gideon and Jane” will be renamed as “29 & Divorced”
I just feel that it does the book more justice 🙂 This book isn’t just based on my real life story, it’s a novel that I wrote to stir up conversations.
Why is divorce still such a taboo topic in Singapore?
Why are so many people, women especially, so ashamed to be divorced?
I also want the book to send hope to people who have chosen to face their fears and meet with Grief and Trauma head on.
The more we choose to uproot from our comfort zones and take that first step to changing our unhappy lives, the more we will be confronted with truths we have tried to run from for our entire lives.
People often say that the first step is always the hardest, but I actually think that all the parts in between require a lot of stamina and continual determination and support to get us through the long marathon.
I hope the book also lends support to people who are running this marathon because I’m still running it alongside you.
I’m here. You’re not alone.
