Jacob’s New Dress is at the Printer!

We are completely and utterly thrilled that our book, Jacob’s New Dress, is now available for preorder on Amazon. My husband Ian and I are over the moon about having this book, which we envisioned so many years ago, finally come into being. The photo above gives you a sense of the lovely illustrations by Chris Case, who we think did a great job of capturing the spirit, emotion, and life of the book.

Jacob’s New Dress will be out on March 1. We hope to have approximately one zillion preorders by then, so we can show bookstores that this is a book worth stocking. Some of you who saw my post on Facebook have already preordered and for that we love and thank you so very much. But most of all, all the Jacobs of the world love and thank you so very much, for helping to educate the world about them, and for helping to keep them safe and happy in all their sparkly glory.

If you have a comment or word of encouragement for us and you’re reading this post by email, please click on the title of the post and it will take you to my website where you can leave us a note. I love your emails but am not able to get to all of them! For my web readers, please just comment below. Thank you!

And we simply cannot wait to hear what you think of the book.

    Yay!!! :) :) I’m so excited for you–and for the chance to read this when it comes out! I had to wear boy’s pants the whole time I was growing up. I love dresses SO much!!! Now that I’m an adult, I want to wear dresses as much as I possibly can. Can’t wait to read Jacob’s story. I’m definitely going to purchase a copy!

    I’ve make one small preorder towards your zillion, and I congratulate you on another huge step in getting your message out there. Your blog, your work with schools and talks at relevant organizations, and now your book. You have kept going, against the mainstream, to help many deserving children and their parents.
    Thank you.

    When I saw this I literally screamed with joy! I’m gender variant myself and am hoping to go into psychiatric gender counseling. This will be a wonderful addition to my stockpile of gender books. I am currently in the process of publishing a children’s book on bullying. The main character in said book will, in further books, be introduced as gender non-conforming as well. I hope “Jacob’s New Dress” and your follow-up posts will give me a renewed sense of what it is like to express trans* concepts with children!
