True Spirit

I'm so pleased they decided to change the design on the front cover of Jessica's book.

Left: The original design as it was posted on her website on 25th April 2010.

Right: As posted on her website today, 18th June 2010.

Jessica will be touring Australia in August 2010.

Visit http://jessicawatson.com.au/the-latest-news and stay tuned on the latest news for details about her upcoming appearances as well as information about how to purchase a copy of her book.

You can also pre-order the book from Booktopia

I can't wait to read it!


  1. Hi Sam,

    Good to hear from you. Thanks for the Booktopia link. It looks like they ship overseas, so if I don't find a source here in the U.S. at least I know where I can order Jessica's book. I'd love to buy her book at one of her public appearances that she will make in the States, but there's no guarantee that she will make to my area.

    Hope everything's going well for you.


  2. Hi Aunty Sam,
    I am too but you didn't tell us why? Lol.

    Brett Costello [Daily Telegraph] who took those photos of Jessica, was hanging out of a helicopter for a long time. It's amazing the type of swell she was trudging through to get to the finish line.

  3. G'day Magpie, yes his photos were the best by far I thought.

    No worries Mark and yes things are going very well thanks.


  4. Hi, Sam!

    I love the new, revised, cover on "True Spirit" too! Much more indicative of what Jesse was actually going through, and what made her successful circumnavigation such an awesome voyage!

    Also wanted to tell you that I loved your photos, and the tropical birds stopping by your veranda certainly make it look like a bit of Paradise!!!

    All the other photos are great too! You all made such wonderful spokespersons for Jesse's world-wide blog family, and the Jejssaholics, in particular!! Good on ya' all!

    Warmest wishes, Sam, and I hope that you're not working too hard now that your vacation's over!!!

    Love, Carol

  5. Hi Carol...thanks.

    The first cover was only ever a draft until they found the right pic.

    Regards, Sam

  6. G'day Sam,

    I agree, the "new" cover is spot on for Jessica's book. My order is in and can't wait to read it.

    Hope you are well and not working too hard. Impossible in today's nursing environment,to not work too hard, but you know what I mean. :)

    Sending warm wishes your way ....

    Kind Regards,
