I am really excited to be taking part in the cover reveal for Empower: Fight Like A Girl. This book isn't just any old book. Not only does it feature some of the most well-known and talented woman writers in television at the moment, but most importantly it has been created to raise awareness of Lupus. I cannot tell you how important something like this is. Lupus is a terrible condition that can be deadly and mostly affects women who are of childbearing age. A whopping 90% of all cases have been in women. That is a shocking statistic and what is more distressing is that most of us don’t know what Lupus is. Not only does this book raise awareness of the condition it also raises money. All proceeds from this book will be donated to The Lupus Foundation of America.
Without further ado here is the cover of Empower: Fight Like A Girl:
