Holding an advanced copy of my book on Red Square in Moscow (click on the image to order the book)!

Wow! Today is the day that my book, Your Life Isn’t For You, is officially published. It’s a wonderful, absolutely terrifying feeling!!

Here’s the description of my book from the publisher:

In this book, Seth Adam Smith expands on the philosophy behind his extraordinarily popular blog post “Marriage Isn’t for You”—which received over 30 million hits and has been translated into over twenty languages—and shares how living for others can enrich every aspect of your life, just as it has his. With a mix of humor, candor, and compassion, he reveals how, years before his marriage, his self-obsession led to a downward spiral of addiction and depression, culminating in a suicide attempt at the age of twenty. Reflecting on the love and support he experienced in the aftermath, as well as on the lessons he learned from a difficult missionary stint in Russia, his time as a youth leader in the Arizona desert, his marriage, and even a story his father read to him as a child, he shares his deep conviction that the only way you can find your life is to give it away to others.

The Utah Book Tour Begins!

Seth Interview FOX 13 Utah
This is a picture of me saying things about things. 🙂

Well, I’m currently on tour in Utah promoting Marriage Isn’t For You. I’m officially on my first book tour! Sometimes, I can’t believe it’s real because I’ve been dreaming about this for so long.

On Sunday, I was interviewed by Kelly Chapman on Fox 13 News. After that, Deseret News National Edition aired an interview they had with me on Friday (but don’t worry, I wore the same shirt).

Throughout the week, I’m scheduled to appear on a number of news programs. (Kim has even agreed to join me for one of them!) And on Friday and Saturday we will sign books at four Deseret Book stores. If you want, you can stop by and say ‘Hi.’ I’d love to get some selfies with you!
