Expanded Edition of Kim Gravel’s National Bestseller “Collecting Confidence” Coming in Paperback July 9th

New book offers wisdom and relatable stories to help women discover their purpose.

TV personality and fashion & beauty brand icon Kim Gravel is now a national bestselling author. Her debut book, Collecting Confidence: Start Where You Are to Become the Person You Were Meant to Be (HarperCollins), released in 2023 and landed at #8 at Publishers Weekly and #9 on the Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. A new expanded edtion with added discussion guide will be released for the first time in paperback on July 9, 2024.

Collecting Confidence showcases the confidence Gravel has gathered from her own life journey. The book invites readers to examine their lives with a fresh new lens and encourages them to start where they are and become the person they were meant to be. In Collecting Confidence, Gravel reminds you that you are not your current circumstance. You are not your current habits. Where you are right now is, in fact, simply your starting place to become who you’re meant to be. 

In her authentic, effervescent style, Gravel shares how to:

  • Stop doubting and start believing in yourself.
  • Find real confidence that doesn’t waiver in the face of circumstances.
  • Get over making excuses and value yourself more than ever.
  • If you’ve never been down, how are you gonna get up? If you ain’t dead, you ain’t done.
  • Remember you are fearfully and wonderfully made. God sees that. You got this thing called life!

“If you’ve lost your way and forgotten who you are, this book will equip you to glean empowerment from life’s lowest moments,” Gravel says. “You’ll start to change your perspective to realize mistakes can be stepping stones.”

Collecting Confidence features endorsements by Candace Cameron Bure, Lance Bass, Idina Menzel, Deion Sanders and more.

On July 4th, QVC will celebrate Kim-Dependence Day on QVC+, with a 24-hour marathon of "all things Kim.”
