Welcome to the world of Mummy Bloggers

Legend Press are delighted to announce an exciting two book deal with Australian journalist and author Holly Wainwright. THE MUMMY BLOGGERS will be published on 3rd June 2019, followed by HOW TO BE PERFECT in November 2019. English language rights (UK, Europe and India exclusively) were acquired by Legend Press's Commissioning Editor Lauren Parsons from Maggie Thompson at Allen and Unwin.

The Mummy Bloggers offers a sharp and funny look into the brave new world of mummy blogging, the power of social media and the women behind the likes, shares and filters. Wainwright shines a mirror on the lives we create for ourselves – and the vortex of lies we can fall into when living life through the filter of social media.

Mia Freedman has described Holly as ‘The freshest, funniest new voice in fiction since Liane Moriarty’.

Originally from Manchester, Holly Wainwright now lives in Sydney, Australia. She is a journalist and editor, originally working in travel and celebrity magazines, and is now Head of Entertainment at Mamamia. Holly hosts a parenting podcast and has two small children.

The follow-up HOW TO BE PERFECT (November 2019) also explores the pressures of social media, focusing on wellness influencers and the cult of dietary superiority that has gone from the fringe to the mainstream.

Lauren Parsons, Commissioning Editor of Legend Press comments: ‘We are thrilled to be publishing two fantastic novels by Holly Wainwright in 2019. Holly’s writing is light-hearted and wickedly clever’.
