Pay it forward


When we set up Break the Habit Press, we knew we wanted all of our books to have a strong social message, not just in terms of content, but in how we go about publishing them.  

At one of our very first events with 100 Women I Know we didn’t sell many books and it got us talking about how they really are a luxury item. Even sold at a discount from the standard £8.99, it’s still a lot of money.

It’s for this reason that we want to try a pay it forward scheme on both of our books, 100 Women I Know and Period. This means that if you are someone who can afford to spend a bit more, you can now buy a book and the postage for someone who can’t.

How this will work:

  1. If you want to pay it forward for someone, you can order a copy, or copies, via our website.

  2. You will be given the option to leave a note for the seller. Please leave us a note with PAY IT FORWARD and the number of books you would like for yourself and the number going to the pay it forward reserve.

  3. As a reward for your loveliness there will be a discount code, PAYITFORWARD10, so you will get 10% off all of the books you buy at that time, including the ones for yourself.

  4. Check out as normal!

For people who can’t afford a book at this time, do give us an email at and if there are books waiting in the pay it forward reserve, we will get one out to you.
