While fans will have to wait a couple more months to read Porsha Williams' full memoir, The Pursuit of Porsha: How I Grew Into My Power and Purpose, she's treating everyone to a sneak peek before the November 16 release date now. The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member dropped the book's first chapter this week, and also shared the book's super sweet dedication.
"To my lifesaver PJ, Mommy’s tears will never be your fears. Love you forever!" the dedication reads. Porsha welcomed her daughter Pilar Jhena McKinley in March 2019.
The preview also included "A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR" that reads: "To protect the privacy of my loved ones, and other people whom I’ve met and would rather forget, some names have been changed. Others have been erased."
In the book's introduction, she also notes how she hopes her story can inspire and give hope to others. "If there is one person I can touch with my story or save from making the same mistakes I did, then it was all worth it," she write. "Honestly, it was all worth it anyway because it made me the woman, the mother, the daughter, and the friend that I am today. Every sparkling diamond has been put under pressure. I am no exception. Some of that pressure you’ve seen on television, but other moments you have no idea about—until now."

Porsha has taken fans along for her journey as she prepares to release the book. And you can bet that she can't wait for it to hit shelves.
"It's happening! My book is officially on press!!! To celebrate, I'm giving you a sneak peek. It will be another 10 weeks before you can hold the book in your hands, but you can read the first chapter TODAY. Just head to the link in my bio to request the excerpt and we'll send it directly to your inbox," she shared. "Happy reading!!"
She also shared a bit more about her writing process in a separate Instagram post. "Blood sweat [and] tears have [been] put into writing this book! Wow the life," she wrote. "I have lived the things, the things I have survived mentally [and] physically!! God is a true way maker! I’m grateful for every life lesson! I’m stronger today because of them!"
Last month, Porsha shared a video of her recording the audiobook. "Wow so emotional. You may know my story, but you don’t know my WHOLE story. Spotlights leave some things in the shadow. Soundbites, headlines, and rumors share only what sells. But there is so much more. And I finally get to share it with you IN MY BOOK," she captioned the video. "Inside, I take you back to the beginning, long before the television cameras came my way. Growing up, finding faith, looking for love, searching for happiness… I get real about it all to give you a first-hand look at how I grew into my power and purpose… and to help you to find your purpose too."
