GUEST BLOG: How the Magazine Started by Chapter Magazine

Beauty and the City Tour Banner

How the chapter magazines started:

We wanted to make the Beauty and the City story accessible for those who love to read YA without charging. While giving the Kindle Book Free is one way, some readers may not pay attention to that list every week. We didn’t want the story to get lost in the stack. So we decided to try putting together a magazine that would celebrate the story in a fun way. We are just starting to incorporate videos and make-up how-to articles. These will be in the December issue. We want Chapter Magazines to incorporate some of the interests of the Beauty and the City audience. My goal is to open the story up and allow it to build on the concepts of evolving beauty and love.

I was inspired by the style and beauty focus of the characters. We came up with concepts to bring the beauty styles from the story to life. We are creating a niche beauty brand all about the Glow Up. Beauty and the City brand is launching products that highlight what makes someone feel like a Beauty in their City. We hope our beauty products celebrate the unique features of each beauty.
It is an evolving concept. What we are most excited about is that people get to read the story and get to know the characters. It is a 3-part series that follows the “squad” from high school to college and then into adulthood. While the story is about finding love, some of the most important pieces are the self-love lessons picked up along the way.
Please share with us your thoughts and join our community on our blog, IG, or as a Brand Ambassador.

Beauty and the City is a contemporary love story about Milan, a young glamorous model who is hiding her disability even as she rises in popularity. Met with an internal moral dilemma, Milan finds herself at a crossroads. She wants to be the girl everyone seems to like, yet she knows there’s more. Underneath this quest for self-love is a complicated goal to reignite a love she can never quite get right.

Here’s How It All Begins:

The beginning of the end started the summer before senior year. Seventeen years old—a record year for me. I was just a girl. The only Milan on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Being the only anything in New York was rare. Like all girls, I had a secret. Being deaf was something I found easier to deal with when fewer people knew, so just before starting a new high school and after Mama’s accident, I reinvented myself. I left my hearing aid at home permanently, which made it difficult at times because I only had partial hearing in one ear to start with. Without my hearing aid, I really was in complete silence. Yet I had other skills that allowed me to communicate just fine. It wasn’t too soon after I started high school that I began modeling, and, well, the world looked at me in a way I sort of liked. But love—that was what confused me the most. I had found myself in a boy craze of the most peculiar predicament, in a tangled web that nearly took me under. They never warn you about love, and no magazine could ever do it justice.

Beauty and the City is a novel distributed in Free Monthly Chapter Magazines that feature the story.
