Self-development coach and “manifesting queen” Roxie Nafousi’s debut has been signed by Penguin Michael Joseph.
Ione Walder, publisher at PMJ, acquired world rights from the author. Manifest: 7 Steps to Living Your Best Life will be released in hardback, e-book and audio on 6th January 2022 for £14.99.
Nafousi is a self-development coach, a manifesting expert, an ambassador for the Mental Health Foundation, an Instagram agony aunt and a host of popular podcast series “The Moments That Made Me”. Global media firm Forbes dubbed her the “manifesting queen”, referencing a trend where people visualise or write down their goals to turn them into reality.
“Her commitment to transforming the lives of people who suffer with emotional and mental health issues and helping them to fulfil their potential has seen her become a well-known and respected figure in the wellness world,” PMJ said.
The publisher added: “Aimed at the gap in the market for a practical book on this increasingly popular self-development trend, Manifest is an inspirational ‘how to’ on Roxie’s seven-step guide to manifesting, what it really is and how to use it to turn dreams into a reality. By working through these simple steps, readers will learn the true art of manifesting, while understanding how to let go of the limiting beliefs and self-doubt that may currently be standing in the way of you and your dreams. By taking control of your thoughts, beliefs, actions and emotions you can unlock the magic of the universe to create the life you truly want. Manifest is for anyone who wants to reach their goals, bring good things into their life or who just wants to take back control of their lives and begin to make positive changes to their day-to-day.”
Nafousi said: “In 2018 I was at rock bottom. I was addicted to drugs, alcohol, cigarettes. I had no career path at all, I hadn’t made money for years, I was very much alone and I had lost all hope. Then I discovered manifesting and within weeks my whole world began to transform in every way possible. In this book, I have explained my own seven-step guide to manifesting so that the reader can learn absolutely everything they need to know to manifest successfully. This is a self-help, self-love, empowerment and manifesting book in one, with some of my own personal story sprinkled throughout."
Walder added: “Manifesting is having a real moment, but despite the buzz, there hasn’t yet been a truly definitive book on how to do it. After such a turbulent year, it’s not surprising that people are looking to take back control of their lives, and I can’t think of anyone better than Roxie to help with this, having completely turned her own life around using these principles not to mention the many others who’ve attended her workshops.
"I cannot wait to publish this practical but inspirational book, which distils all her advice into seven simple steps that anyone and everyone can use to change their life.”
