2/11/19 @9:30am pst - Amalia Andrade, Colombian bestselling writer shares the ultimate guide for combatting heartbreak – just in time for Valentine’s Day!

LISTEN to today's conversation with Amalia Andrade!

“As the great existential philosopher Cher once postulated, ‘do you believe in life after love?’ In my own personal experience, after my breakup, the answer was a resounding NO,” bestselling writer and illustrator Amalia Andrade writes in her beautiful, hand-lettered book YOU ALWAYS CHANGE THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE (For Another Love of Another Life). Born out of a devastating breakup with her long-term girlfriend, the illustrated and interactive book combines a painful experience we can all relate to with advice we desperately need. Her book -- already a sensation in Latin America -- is a seamless blend of witty quips, pop culture references and heart-felt prose, and offers heartbreak advice you won’t find in a stodgy self-help guid. Hilarious and refreshingly honest, it highlights the stages of grief and the lessons that Andrade learned from them.

Join Andrade on February 11th as she channels heartbreak and offers the ultimate first aid kit, including:

The secret code for interpreting text message read receipts
Loving odes to Beyoncé, Ellen DeGeneres, Adele, Taylor Swift, and more
An invitation to create your own healing rituals (go ahead and burn those love letters!)
Comfort food recipes, such as croissant bread pudding and no-bake cheesecake
The perfect playlist for crying in the shower. (You can listen to Amalia’s playlist titled “You Always Change the Love of Your Life by Amalia Andrade” on Spotify)
A dictionary of foolproof passive-aggressive phrases, primed and ready for use

Andrade strikes a perfect balance between the hilarity of things we do during a breakup with the real feelings that need to be expressed. She shines the bright light of hope at the end of the brokenhearted tunnel, ushering in an empowering wave of self-assurance and making us fall in love all over again. Or, as Arianna Grande would say, “thank u, next.”


Amalia Andrade was born in Cali, Colombia, in 1986. She studied literature at Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogotá. She’s been drawing forever. She’s written for several magazines in both Colombia and the United States. She believes strongly in the power of keeping a diary. When she grows up, she want to be a mix between Sylvia Plath and Tina Fey. She lives in Bogotá with her cats. Beyond the page, Andrade has many more stories to share—from her upbringing under the Cali cartel to attending rehab for love addiction.
