Thread to Publish Myth-Busting Single Motherhood Manifesto

Happy Single Mother will be published in ebook, paperback and audio on 3rd March 2022

Thread Publisher Claire Bord acquired World English Language rights for myth-busting single motherhood manifesto Happy Single Mother by author and journalist Sarah Thompson from Rowan Lawton at The Soho Agency.

Claire said:

‘In Happy Single Mother, Sarah de-bunks many of the myths surrounding single motherhood. From how it affects your child’s development to the desperate-single-mother stereotypes still playing out in contemporary culture. She also examines and celebrates the many positive impacts that being raised by a single parent can have on a child. Sarah is covering such important ground. She is also shining a much needed and overdue light on what it means to be a single parent today.’

Sarah said:

‘I’m extremely proud to be joining the Thread family. It’s great to know that Happy Single Mother is in the hands of such an experienced and knowledgeable team. They have really understood what this book is about from the start. While it’s still undoubtedly tough, single motherhood isn’t always the booby prize. There is plenty to learn from and celebrate about the contemporary single-parent lifestyle. I can’t wait to get to work on what I hope will be a revealing, supportive and relatable book for single mothers (and single mothers to be) everywhere.’

Why are single mothers still portrayed as one-dimensional hot messes? Why do holidays still somehow cost the same for single parents as those travelling with partners? Why are we constantly told that children of single parents will be damaged for life? In this myth-busting manifesto, Sarah Thompson shares her own experience of single motherhood, along with a range of case studies and new research to show you all the reasons why being a single parent is great and should be celebrated.
