Jackie Hill-Perry’s speaking style is infectious, and her story has touched thousands, so it comes as no shock that she’s venturing on her first book. The news was shared in an Instagram post, where Perry said “first book. work in progress.”
Jackie Hill-Perry got her start as a P4CM spoken-word artist and is mainly known for her poems “My Life As A Stud”, “Jig-A-Boo” and “A Poem About Weed”. All of which have collectively acquired nearly 2 million views. In 2014, she signed with Humble Beast Records and released her debut album, “The Art of Joy”.
Since then, Perry has continued to be a poet and artist and has toured as a speaker and concluded the Poets In Autumn (P.I.A.) tour until Fall, which she was on with fellow artists Janette(ikz), Ezekiel and her husband Preston Perry. Her most recent talk is “The Beauty of Diversity”.
Perry has been an advocate for biblical womanhood and has spoken openly about her “being saved from a lifestyle of homosexual sin and the like”.
If you’ve followed Perry, though, you know this isn’t the first hint at her writing a book. In 2016, Jackie Hill-Perry shared that she’s known for some time that she should write a book and at that time she signed with B&H Publishing, a Christian publishing company, to publish one.
“After years of knowing that I should write a book,” Jackie Hill-Perry shared in her Instagram post. “By God’s good and sovereign hand and a great team behind me, I am excited to say that I have signed with [b&h publishing] to publish a book! May God get the glory He rightly deserves.”
She has written a foreword for the book “Gospel Fluency” by Jeff Vanderstelt, and contributed to “Women on Life: A Call to Love the Unborn, Unloved, & Neglected” by Trillia Newbell.
