Pippa O’Connor has well and truly proven herself to be more than just a model. The mum-of-two is a blogger, businesswoman and top-selling author, coming in at number 13 on the best-sellers list in Ireland last year.
Now Pippa has even more to be happy about, because her beauty and fashion book has sold 24,000 copies- which is 10,000 over and above her colleagues Roz Purcell and Rosanna Davison.
Roz’s Natural Born Feeder has sold 13,320 since January 2016, while Rosanna’s Eat Yourself Beautiful sold 10,483 and her follow-up Eat Yourself Fit sold 3,424 since last September.
While all three books are fantastic, Pippa’s has a different side as it is not about fitness and health, but rather lifestyle tips. The kildare native also has a strong social media following, which publishers believed aided in sales.
Speaking to the Herald, managing director of Penguin Ireland Michael McLoughlin said, “We are thrilled. Pippa’s book was the 13th best-selling title in Ireland last year and was the third best selling non-fiction book of the year.
“With Pippa, we knew she had a huge social media following and is very popular in her own right.
“We were pleasantly surprised how well the book has done, which just goes to show that people are interested in hearing about the lives of people such as Pippa O’Connor.”
