Book Giveaway


A couple of years ago, I did a very successful Book Giveaway of my book, You ARE Good Enough – a 10-Step Strategy to Stop Sabotaging Yourself, on InstaFreebie.

It is high time that I do another book giveaway, this time of my book Self-Confidence made Simple – 16 French Womens’ Self-esteem Secrets and what better occasion to do so than for Valentine’s day?

So I have decided that all new subscribers to my Mailing List, as long as they subscribe before 11.59 pm CET on the 14th of February, will receive an e-book copy of Self-Confidence made Simple.

If you would like to subscribe, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page and answer the question “Name one or more French Women that you admire…” It can be any French women that you either know or have heard about – an actress like Catherine Deneuve, an author like Simone de Beauvoir, a scientist like Marie Curie…the choice is yours.

About the book
French women are famous for their effortless elegance, their enchanting independence, their irresistible charm and their unshakable self-confidence. Would you like to discover the secrets of these consistently confident women?

In Self-Confidence mad Simple, twelve of Dr Margaretha Montagu closest French friends share their confidence secrets with you. Margaretha has lived in France for part of her childhood and for most of her adult life. She has spent nearly twenty-five years, first as a medical doctor and more recently as a workshop leader, empowering women to live long, happy, healthy and fulfilling lives, full of purpose and meaning.

Discover the secrets of 12 supremely self-confident women.

In this book, you will meet twelve French women, Anaïs, Inès, Lisa, Marie-Therèse, Claire, Régine, Amèlie, Corrine, Béatrice, Annie, Monique and Eloïse who will share their stories with you. As you share these women’s joys and sorrows, you will discover how they remain unconditionally self-confident, serenely sophisticated and perfectly poised no matter how challenging the situations are that they find themselves in.

To each story and to every secret, Dr Montagu brings her extensive knowledge and experience, with practical suggestions to help you incorporate each of these potentially life-changing strategies into your own life.

Self-Confidence made Simple is a guide to becoming a woman who knows exactly who she is, who takes excellent care of herself, who leads a balanced, purposeful and fulfilling life, who has a solid support network, who can laugh at herself, who knows she has a lot to be grateful for, who knows how to forgive, who competently handles stress, who knows how to say NO without apologising and who knows that being ageless is all about attitude.

If you too want to master the skills you need to develop rock-solid self-confidence, this book is for you.

About the Author
Reading is one of my all-time favourite things. I mostly read historical mysteries – don’t you just love that feeling of so completely losing yourself in a book that when you stop reading you feel bereft? I also read non-fiction, mostly self-help books. I am always looking for new strategies that I can use to help the participants of my equine-facilitated personal empowerment workshops here in the south of France. Of course, being convinced that equine-assisted experiential learning is the next best thing to sliced bread, I also read a lot about that.

A few years ago, the writing bug got me. I loved writing right from writing the very first (very badly written) blog post. Eventually, I thought that it may well be an idea to write a book or two based on the knowledge and experience I had acquired by presenting my workshops and reading all those self-improvement books. Obviously, I didn’t just want to repeat what had already been written much more eloquently than I could ever manage. So I started writing from my own experience of living in France, owning and caring for horses, fighting the ever-present threat of losing my sight and presenting my workshops.

I am an experienced medical doctor, a certified NLP practitioner, a medical hypnotherapist and an equine-assisted psychotherapist (EAGALA level II). Articles about my work have been published in Horse and Rider, in Chronicles of the Horse and in the Guardian newspaper (UK).
