X Factor rapper Honey G signs memoirs deal with Bishop's Stortford book publisher SRL Publishing
A Bishop's Stortford book publisher has signed up former X Factor star Honey G in a move that fits with the company's core ethos.
SRL Publishing produces books, through its Breaking The Silence ethos, that have helped people through bereavement, depression in children, LGBT issues and has now recently turned to climate change and mental health.
Honey G, who came fifth in the 2016 X Factor competition and whose real name is Anna Gifford, lost two stone since the country was plunged into lockdown in March by taking part in intensive exercise sessions and mammoth triathlons.
The 39-year-old has been writing her memoirs and chose SRL Publishing as a home for her debut book. She told a national newspaper she had tried to make the best of a "really tough situation" and hoped her fans would enjoy reading her "gripping and shocking life story”.
The publishing house supported Rainforest Trust throughout 2019 and donated a percentage of book sales which helped to save more than 500,000 trees in Peru from deforestation.
More recently, the company teamed up with Ecologi and, through this partnership, has planted over 700 trees in Madagascar and helped with more than 32 tonnes of carbon reduction through supporting projects in Turkey, India, Uruguay, Columbia and Haiti.
SRL was recently honoured at the prestigious One Planet Awards, winning Best Start for the second year running. It was also recognised by Theo Paphitis, from TV's Dragons Den, as a Small Business Sunday winner and has been short-listed for a CEO Today Magazine award.
