Transworld signs polemic by No More Page 3 founder

Transworld is to publish a book by the “No More Page 3” campaign founder Lucy-Anne Holmes.

Digital publishing manager Helen Gregory bought world rights to How to Start a Revolution from Rowan Lawton at Furniss Lawton.

How to Start a Revolution, described as a “short polemic”, will be published as a 99p e-book on 19th March and in £2.99 paperback on 26th March.

It is “Holmes’ manifesto for causing real and meaningful change in society”.

The “No More Page 3” campaign aimed to bring to an end The Sun’s publication of topless women on page three of the newspaper during the week.

Gregory said: “I’m thrilled that we’re publishing How to Start a Revolution. This really is a call to action and Lucy is exactly the right person to write it. She’s been a passionate advocate for change, leading over 240,000 people to campaign against Page 3 since 2012. She is an inspiration to us all and I hope that this book prompts more people to start their own revolutions.”

Holmes said: “I was so thrilled to be asked to write this book. It's the story of how I started “No More Page 3”, and I really hope it inspires people who are passionate about issues to recognise that now is an incredible time to speak up, form movements and affect change.”

Holmes has previously written four fiction novels. Her latest, Just A Girl, Standing in Front of A Boy (Sphere), is nominated for Best Romantic Comedy Novel at the Romantic Novelists Awards.
