media star, Carolanne Miljavac

Uhrichsville, OH—Barbour Publishing is pleased to announce the signing of a book deal with life coach, motivational speaker, and social media comedian Carolanne Miljavac. Her debut book, Odd(ly) Enough: Standing Out When the World Begs You to Fit In, is scheduled to release in November 2018 under Barbour’s Shiloh Run Press imprint.

Humorous. Authentic. Relatable. That’s Carolanne Miljavac in a nutshell. With over 100 million video views and 350,000 social media followers, she has become the “go to girl” for a good laugh, motivation, loving truths, and vulnerability. Her purpose in life is to spread love and joy without sacrificing honesty and truth—something that has resonated with millions of people on her wildly popular social media pages.

Miljavac’s Odd(ly) Enough is for women of all ages who have ever felt insignificant, out of place, uncomfortable, or unqualified. She says, “When we are broken and humbled. . .God comes in and shows us the beauty in our ashes. Everything that we think makes us an outcast is what actually makes us. . .oddly enough.”

About the Author
Carolanne Miljavac is a southern raised, Jesus saved, barely sane author, speaker, social media goofball, wife, and mom of 3 daughters. With a bachelor’s degree in English, CA has earned an Olympic bronze medal in waitressing, 2 silvers in door-to-door sales, a gold in virtual health/life coaching, and 10s across the board in the art of sarcasm. Impressive, she knows. But it was the crushing loss of her seven-year-old niece to cancer that finally humbled her enough to listen to God when He said to her, as she crumbled in her car, “Give it up.” Without the chains of fear and insecurity, she followed her spirit’s instruction to speak. She now has over 100 million video views and 350,000 social media followers. She pulls heartstrings while tapping funny bones with a message of freedom and revelation. Her purpose in life is to spread love and joy without sacrificing honesty and truth. She believes we all have a story needing to be told. Grief taught her gratitude, pain gave her purpose, and loss revealed true love. With faith, she found audacity, and her mission is to give you the guts to be you too.
