Presenter and vlogger Grace F. Victory releases her first book on 27 July.
In No Filter, Grace explores taboo topics such as domestic abuse and mental health. Grace tells us that the book contains “my usual anecdotes and no-nonsense advice that you can expect from me”, and expressed her hope that “every chapter has something that helps or inspires someone in some way”.

When Grace decided to write the book, she had no shortage of interest from publishers, but eventually went with Headline. “I had 15 meetings with publishers that were interested in working with me,” she reveals. “I loved Headline’s offer on what they could do for No Filter. The vibe I got when I first met them gave me an instant feeling of ‘they are the ones’.”
Written over three “very intense, but amazing” months, No Filter contains multiple stories that Grace has not spoken about publicly before. Not all of the chapters were easy to write, with one specifically being harder to write than the others. “It took everything in me to write about [the topic],” she told TenEighty. “I won’t go into too much detail, but it is around consent”.
In celebration of the book’s release, Grace will be going on a mini tour entitled An Evening With Grace Victory, with dates in London, Manchester, and Nottingham. Tickets can be bought here.
No Filter is released today (27 July), and can be ordered from Amazon here.
