Good afternoon, 

A couple of people posing for the cameraDescription automatically generatedI hope you're well! I wondered if you'd like to see a photo (credit: Xanthe Nimmo) for potential inclusion from last night's book launch? 

Here's a link to the online press folder:, which contains more photos of Cheryl Hole and Dr Ortega from last night. 

Dr Tony Ortega, clinical psychologist with 27 years' experience, flew in from New York to celebrate the UK launch of his second self-help book, #AreYouHereYet: How to STFU & Show Up For Yourself, published by Ortus Press last night. The party at Bar Soho in London was hosted by Ru Paul's UK Drag Race Season One Finalist, Cheryl Hole, with 60+ guests in attendance. The photo attached is of Dr Ortega and Cheryl Hole on the bed in the Boudoir Room at Bar Soho :-)
It was lots of fun. The book is officially on sale from today. 

Tony is flying back to New York on Tuesday. He's currently doing a day of radio interviews but has some availability on 17thif you'd like to meet with him while he's in the UK.

And we'd love to send you a copy of the new book if you'd like to see it?

#AreYouHereYet: How To STFU and Show Up For Yourselfis the sequel to Dr Ortega's debut self-help book,#IsHeHereYet: Being the Person You Want to Be With. It follows the clinical psychologist's signature raw, humorous, and compelling style as he continues to examine the perceived epidemic of being single in our universal quest for love. When a person is committed to doing all the work to improve themselves by being "The One" (and thereby improve their love life), what happens when nothing seems to happen afterwards? Through witty, thought-provoking writing, sassy #OMG Moments, case studies, and "Tea Time with Tony" (end-of-chapter exercises for the reader), Dr Ortega helps to explore the personal blocks and self-limiting beliefs that keep us stuck. It's a second chance at not only improving, but falling in love with, ourselves. It provides essential "what next?" support in a sea of self-help books focused on the start of the journey.
