Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. According to Wikipedia, the term “Cyber Monday” was created by marketing companies to persuade people to shop online. The term was coined by Ellen Davis and Scott Silverman, and made its debut on November 28, 2005, in a Shop.org press release entitled “‘Cyber Monday’ Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year”.
So what does that mean for Marvelous University?
As the founder of Marvelous University, it means this is the perfect day to persuade you to stay on your computer to head to this website to purchase Love Your Jiggle: The Girl’s Guide To Being Marvelous, the book I wrote for middle school and high school girls.
Love Your Jiggle: The Girl’s Guide To Being Marvelous has received favorable reviews from girls and from parents, which warms my heart. But, more importantly, I’m thankful that girls are embracing the idea of loving themselves, even in the midst of chaos, change, and confusion. A time better known as adolescence!

Since this is the season of gift-giving, I scoured the internet to see the top gifts for preteen and teenage girls. Most of the gifts were makeup kits, cameras, gadgets for phones and socks. I couldn’t help but think books, people, books! And not just any book, a book where girls will feel like they’re having a conversation with a trusted adult. A book for girls that serves as a guide on navigating middle school and high school. A book that addresses the topics girls really think about, friendships, body image, and making the right decisions.
If ebooks are more of your thing, you can purchase the ebook on amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and itunes.com. The ebook is a great way for parents to read the book first before gifting it to your daughter, niece, cousin, neighbor, daughter’s friend…well, you get my point 🙂
Also, when you order on Amazon through the above link, you’ll get a chance to also give to an organization dear to my heart, HYPE Freedom School, Inc.
Shopping on Amazon through AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop. HYPE Freedom School, Inc. will receive donations from eligible purchases you make at smile.amazon.com and starting with Love Your Jiggle: The Girl’s Guide to Being Marvelous is a great way to begin!
As always, I hope this marvelous Monday will be the beginning of a fantastic week!
