A gorgeously illustrated, warm and practical book of tips and wisdom to guide you through tough times.
This is a self-care manual for the days when you feel alone—the days when you worry that you’re too weird or broken or unfixable to be normal. With compassion, humor, and honesty, Jill offers signposts to help you find the path back to yourself.
Whether you’re having a bad day, or a run of bad days that seems never-ending, When You’re Not OK is an emotional first-aid kit for your body, mind, and soul, written by someone who’s been there too.
“This snappy little manual...for those who are struggling and receiving negative messages from their inner critic…A handy, feel-good volume of tips and advice for contented living.”
“Some of the writings are a page or two, some a paragraph, some just a sentence. They all cause the reader to pause and regroup…[A] delightful stocking stuffer for a dear friend or family member.”
—Miriam Downey, The Cyberlibrarian
Praise for Happy Never After:
“Extraordinary…Stark address[es] this vexed question of what effect our over-stimulated, almost constantly wired brains are having on our sense of well-being.”
“This is a book we need. Highly, highly recommended. Puts a deft finger on many things that I guarantee have been quietly troubling you for a while. A book for our times.”
—Susan Carland, author of Fighting Hislam: Women, Faith and Sexism
