“Holy. Shit.” in a good or bad way? I can’t tell either.
totally a good way lol, I will edit that comment and make it lean more hahah
OK good. =) And by the way, thank you for putting it all out there, both figuratively and literally. You are an inspiration.
thank you Lane…
Wow!! I was expecting big sun glasses riding the bus.
And did they Photoshop out the famous freckles? Or is that a metaphor for everything I am completely naked except for the face (clearly thinking too much here).
that’ll be the second book lol
I had the same reaction to the cover as when tuning into now 3 year old (?) Sex Rehab for the first time. Omg….she’s just a girl! (in a good human way…a real person).
hahaha I had the same reaction to myself in SR! (OMG I’m just a girl!)
When can I order?
you can order online anytime! I put a bunch of links up on the side of my blog…
OK great, I wasn’t aware that it had been released! Can’t wait to read, I love your writing!
Congrats! Can’t wait to read your writing!

I look forward to reading your book.
Gee, whiz. Could that book cover be any more…
Thanks Bill! I’m very pleased with it, with the whole thing…
It is amazing how having a cover makes it real, isn’t it? Congrats!
Right? So crazy!
Would you sign mine? I would totally be honored.
July 10? Why does that seems so close yet so far away. I want my copy now!
You are an extrordinary person, I hope you find ways to strengthen others, and can help people stay away from the pitfalls you dealt with.
Your transformation moved me. U should be proud. I am going to amazon to preorder.
wow, definitely a sexy and provocative cover photo. can’t wait to buy the book!!!
Congratulations. I can’t wait to get my copy. I pre ordered weeks ago.
You are an inspiration to me and countless others.
Great Cover..can’t wait to read it..an insperation to all of us in recovery i’m sure
Congratulations. First time commenting. I just wanted to say your blog helped me out in so many ways, and inspired me to start my own. I’m glad things are turning up Milhouse for you!
I’m going to have to get a copy when it comes out!
“Soft you now, the fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons, be all my sins remember’d.” (Hamlet, III, I) I would love to see you post a side-by-side of your first day in rehab and this cover. Wow. Recovery is breathtaking…
You’re gorgeous Jennie…. both inside AND out. I will most definitely be ordering a copy of your book.
“Soft you now, the fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons, be all my sins remember’d (Hamlet III, I).” I would love to see a side-by-side of your first day in rehab & this book cover. Recovery is breathtaking…
Just went to Amazon and pre-ordered my copy…. Can’t wait to read it. Congratulations on this new journey you’re on!!

When is the book coming out? I can’t wait to read it. I’ve been fascinated/attracted to you ever since I accidentally clicked on an e-mail and saw you as “Dolly”. You’ve been through so much in your life that I’m certain your book will be an entertaining and informative. Think you’re great.
A great photo. You look both strong and vulnerable. I suppose we all are, really. Good luck with the book. You are an inspiration.
Amazing… I can’t wait to read it even though following this from the beginning makes me feel like I already know you. You are an amazing woman and have come so far thanks for sharing your life with us, you have made me seek healing and shown me that even though you hit rock bottom, there is always a way up… One day at a time
That’s amazing. So proud of you. I’ve gone from being a fan of your work to a fan of you, Jennie. Keep fighting!
Perfect. Nothing fake, nothing pretentious – just you. Like the book’s contents will be too I’m sure- entirely you. Just simply perfect
I think you should post some sample pages to amazon so people can get the jist of the book.
When does the book come out?
July 10th… this summer…so soon!
Congrats! I’m looking very forward to reading the book, but I’m curious…was the cover your idea or the publisher’s? Are you concerned that being naked on the cover could make it easier for some to write you off as just another “porn whore” who decided to write a book?
Terrific cover image. Both simple and complex at the same time.
It’s arresting as an image, but with the title and subtitle one has to re-evaluate what we’re seeing.
Exposed, not naked. Real, not idealized. Revealed, yet guarded. Young, yet almost uncomfortably mature and grounded.
Really impressive! All the very best wishes for this book. I’m certain it will have more impact than you’ll ever know!
LOVE this!! I can’t wait for the book! I’m SO proud of you, Jenny!
YAY! WOOT! Congrats! Pre-ordered the book today, can’t wait to read it. You DID IT! Can ya believe it?

I’m so happy for you, Jennie! I hope you like the cover.
Is the UK edition, which I’ve pre-ordered on Amazon.co.uk, coming out at the same time as the US edition? Is there even a different UK edition?
Also, are you selling some signed copies?
Oh, and the cover is great – looking forward to reading the book.

I look forward to reading this. Your story, your life, is magnificent.
Dear Jennie—Looks great! I am very happy for you. It must really be something to realize your dream(s). Make sure to be grateful and say thanks to you know who. Very excited to read it. It took and continues to take a lot of courage to do what you do. I know you will continue to be successful if you don’t get distracted and stay focused on helping others as you have done here. Much love and respect.
Congratulations Jennie. I have pre-ordered through Amazon.uk and am looking forward to reading your book. It must be great to finally see the finished article after all the sweat and tears you have put into it.
Jennie, I’m a bit curious. Assuming the cover picture was taken for the book, How did it feel to be posing for that as opposed to how you felt when posing for pics back in your old career?
Congratulations. No veneer, no veil, all you. Beginning again each day with loving kindness.
Jennie, I had a similar question to Craig. Are you interested in commenting more on the direction for the cover? Do you expect that people will ask you about it in interviews? It’s a bold choice to introduce and frame your story, one that people might interpret in a way different than you intend. The choice of the red accent light is a strong statement and appears like a nod to your past. There’s an interesting tension there.
Congratulations, Jennie! You’ve come a long way!
You of course look lovely. I was just, I don’t know expecting something less salacious, not that this is obscene or indecent. Your eyes do have an alluring quality to them. I guess I was hoping for maybe one of your paintings to grace the first cover. I’m really looking forward to what’s behind that dust jacket though. Have a beautiful day dear lady.
You are so amazing. I really cannot wait to read the book!
P.S. I hope the move is going/has gone well!
Wwwwooooooooooooo!! Awesome I can’t wait to read it!
May 16, 2012
I’ve been following and marveling at your recovery process almost from day one. It’s truly astounding how far you’ve come in such a relatively short time. You’re an inspiration to me and many, many others. Congratulations! May you continue to grow and blossom into the person you were meant to be.
When are you doing a in-store book signing? Would love to meet the new awesome author!
Congratulations! Was it the publisher, however, who might’ve suggested the use of a cover photo from your days in the adult film industry? And nice to see a foreward from Dr. Drew. Hope you’ll appear as a guest on his HLN show to discuss the book and other things.

I posted our interview with a link to your book! I hope it sells millions and I hope you are doing well!!! ~ Julie Meadows/Lydia Lee
Wow. Not what I expected for the cover, but I’m very impressed. You’re still the most interesting person I’ve encountered on the Web. Looking forward to reading it.
Congrats! What an exciting time for you. I am interested in why you chose such a revealing cover…
I just pre-ordered your book thru BN. I am so excited for you Jennie. Shyte I just read ur comment that it comes out in July 10th but I am moving before that. Arggg
First of I am so excited for you. Seconf of, I just pre order your book thru BN, shyte I just read your comment that it comes out in July 10th. I am moving by that time but I still do not know my address. I hope I can fix this situation. I will be very dissapointed if I don’t get your book
May 18, 2012
And will there be a book tour?
May 19, 2012
This is on my summer reading list for sure. So happy for you Jennie. Been a huge fan for 3 years since SH. Can’t believe its been 3 years already and you finally have the book out. Time is crazy! What a difference 3 years makes.
May 20, 2012
It’s good that I can actually WRITE this comment because I’m speechless seing your cover, it really looks amazing!
I already pre-ordered your book in January and am so psyched that it is coming out so soon now
Though I also missed the sweet little freckles on that sweet face…
May 22, 2012
I am so ordering this for my Kindle!! Then I’m going to put it up on Goodreads! Then I’m going to tell everyone about it and how amazing you are as a person! You are an inspiration!
It’s beautiful Jennie….but I like more freckles, it’s more true to the you!!!
May 25, 2012
Way to go!! So happy for you to see it all coming together… Pre ordered your book today!

U know what is so funny? I saw this cover and had to jerk off again.. u were a good pornstar
June 2, 2012
Get back under your rock, you idiot.
As a sex addict it’s the “I had to jerk off again..” instead of the “I don’t have to jerk off if I don’t want to..but I want to” isn’t it? The Penny Flame “art” is still out there and there is plenty of it to go around, and a hell of a lot of us are ‘fans’ of it but this is Jennie Ketchum “former pornstar” (yes a title she’s going to live with for the rest of her life) so Tommy I get what you are saying, she looks amazing,she really does, and people are going to see this cover and judge her book (and her life now) as “Why is she topless if she’s done with porn?” But this space, Jennie’s blog, just isn’t the space for stinging sarcasm (maliciously intended or not). So if you respect Jennie, just be cool. We don’t want to hear about you and what you do when no one’s looking. Thanks brother!

Jusst ordered your book and looking very forward to it. Will be inquiring in the near future about some of your art. Thank you for sharing. You look great on your cover.
June 15, 2012
I LUV the cover. It speaks volumes. How do I get an autographed copy of the book? I’m interested in some of your art as well. How do I get in touch about purchasing?
I’m trying to figure out a pre-order sale deal combo thing… Like, order before it’s drop date and get a signed copy and a super cool bookmark or something like that. I will post an update once I know how to do it all. In the mean time, all the books that have been pre-ordered will be included in the deal so if you do pre-order, I will definitely sign it!
Good deal!! I preordered through Barnes and Noble. What about the art question. What’s the best way to address payment and sale of some of your art? Just when you get time…I know you’re busy. Thanks, Jennie.
Does that mean any preorderd copy? (I am in the UK and preordered a copy a while back via Amazon UK).
I have this mental image of you sitting at the end of the printer production line with pen in hand, signing like fury as they roll towards you.
What is it with autographs by the way? What is the attraction to having something signed? I have wondered about this before, and it strikes me as a strange custom, and maybe even a little predatory.
It’s as if you take a piece of the person, that then belongs to you. (Cannibalistic?)
Or maybe less sinister and a bit like in the middle ages, a king would ‘touch’ the ailing poor, and they would think themselves cured, or possessing a holy relic would get you nearer to god.
I’m thinking about this too much….must get a life.
