Blink to publish inspirational new memoir from Lottie Tomlinson 

Blink Publishing, an imprint of Bonnier Books UK, has announced that it has acquired an ‘inspirational’ memoir from businesswoman and influencer Lottie Tomlinson. The book will be published this summer as Blink marks its milestone tenth anniversary.  

Publishing Director Ciara Lloyd is editing and publishing the memoir originally acquired by Susannah Otter for UK & Commonwealth exc. Canada rights from Kate Evans at PFD in a seven-way auction. 

Lucky Girl: Family, falling and finding my way is Lottie’s incredible story of resilience and hope which navigates the highs of touring with her brother Louis as a make-up artist with One Direction, to the devastating lows of losing her mother to leukemia when she was just 18 years old and then her beloved sister three years later. Going behind the glamour and the fame, Lottie’s beautiful memoir explores the rollercoaster of her life, from the darkest days and loneliest nights to the success she found despite it all, and how all the challenges and setbacks have led her to where she is today. Heartbreaking yet inspirational, Lottie hopes that in telling her story and how she has navigated the pain and grief in her life that she will provide hope for others going through their darkest times. 

Lottie Tomlinson is one of the UK’s most in-demand influencers with a social media following of 5 million and a market leading tanning brand (Tanologist) that she launched at just 19. She has pioneered beauty trends and worked with everyone from Dior Beauty and Givenchy to ASOS and Boux Avenue.   

After experiencing first-hand the impact of grief and the lack of support available to young people, Lottie became a passionate supporter of causes relating to mental health and is an ambassador of bereavement charity Sue Ryder and has spoken in parliament alongside Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP about shaping policies to provide more access to grief counselling.   

Lottie Tomlinson said: ‘I am so excited to be sharing Lucky Girl with the world. This book is my story from the start, the ups the downs and everything in between. This book means so much to me, it’s deep from the heart and I hope it can inspire people to find light in the dark times.’ 

Kate Evans said: ‘Lucky Girl is a very special book from an incredible person. I can’t wait for readers everywhere to be inspired by Lottie’s kindness, resilience, and ability to find beauty in even the darkest day.’ 

Lucky Girl: Family, falling and finding my way will be published in hardback, audio (with Lottie narrating) and eBook on August 1st.
