Ebury Press editorial director Emma Smith has acquired Happy Planning, a "practical guide for those who like to prep" from Charlotte Plain, a.k.a. Instagrammer Princess Planning.
Smith bought world all language rights to the title directly from the author.
Plain is the person behind Instagram account and website Princess Planning, where she sells diaries, planners and stationery which aim to help organise and inspire positivity. Happy Planning will give readers the tools they need to plan every aspect of their life, from the weekly shop and daily meal prep to big occasions like weddings, parties and holidays.
The publisher explains: "Planning is about taking away last-minute panic pressure, gaining control and helping you to be the best version of yourself. Charlotte's everyday approach has been so successful that she launched a business off the back of it, and is now sharing all of her practical and positive know-how in this book. As well as her planning mantras and toolkit, each section of the book is dedicated to an area of life that benefits from planning and is packed with personal learning experiences, planning methods, tips and tricks, practical guidance and interactive elements. It's simple, positive and practical planning that will lead to a healthier happier you."
Smith added: "We all need a good dose of practical positive planning in our lives (now, more than ever), so we are incredibly excited to be publishing an Instagram star and self-made businesswoman like Charlotte. Princess Planning brings calm, happy, down-to-earth reassurance to hundreds of thousands of people every day and we can’t wait for more happy planners to discover her inspirational approach."
Plain commented: "I’m really excited to have this opportunity to bring my love of positive planning into peoples’ lives."
Happy Planning will be published on 7th January 2021.
