Shelly to re­lease tell-all book

Jamaica Gleaner - - FRONT PAGE -

DOU­BLE OLYMPIC gold medal­list Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will pub­lish a tell-all au­to­bi­og­ra­phy this year.

The book will de­tail her many strug­gles and ob­sta­cles along her path to be­com­ing an Olympic cham­pion.

Ti­tled Pryce­less Jour­ney, the book, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease yes­ter­day, will re­veal soul-search­ing tes­ti­mony, very per­sonal in­for­ma­tion, as well as pro­vide suc­cess tips in over­com­ing per­sonal chal­lenges.

Team­ing up with vet­eran jour­nal­ist Ian Boyne, host of Tele­vi­sion Ja­maica’s long-stand­ing mo­ti­va­tion­alin­spi­ra­tional pro­gramme Pro­file, Fraser-Pryce said Pryce­less Jour­ney will demon­strate the power of pos­i­tive think­ing, dili­gent ap­pli­ca­tion and re­silience.

“I am nor­mally a shy and very pri­vate per­son, so some things told in this book will be re­vealed for the first time, even to some of my clos­est friends!” she ad­mit­ted in the re­lease.

“I want peo­ple to read this book and be in­spired by my per­sonal de­ter­mi­na­tion that led to my Olympic suc­cess and re­alise you can ac­com­plish your goals, no mat­ter where you are from,” she added.

Ian Boyne, who con­ducted in­ter­views with Fraser-Pryce over a nearly one-year pe­riod said: “Work­ing with Shelly-Ann on this project has been one of the high­lights of my ca­reer. She is the com­plete pack­age.”

Pryce­less Jour­ney will be re­leased lo­cally by Pel­i­can Pub­lish­ers, with in­ter­na­tional re­lease to be ne­go­ti­ated and fi­nalised.
