After 12 years of hard work and being thrown for a loop by a publisher who shut abruptly, taking with them the financial investment I’d made towards my book’s production, I’ve decided to self-publish Momma Love; How the Mother Half Lives.

Gloria Steinem says “Ali Smith has given us a gift with Momma Love; a fresh, eye-opening manifestation of motherhood’s contemporary realities.”

Please consider supporting Momma Love’s printing through my Kickstarter campaign. Any amount helps! Pre-sales of the book are available at a special discounted price as well as some other very cool perks!

The book will be released May 1st this year making it the perfect Mother’s Day gift!

In my quest to share these women’s personal stories and portraits, I’ve turned away from the industry and towards the community. I’ve turned to you. The heart of the matter.

    I just found out about your book. Can you say “teary eyed”?
    We thank you.

    Hi Ali! I love the video for Momma Love and would love a copy, but missed the kickstarter campaign. Is there an email list where I can be notified when they’re available? Thanks!

    Hi Sara
    Thanks for your interest! The release date is May 1st, but I am taking pre-orders now. You can either do a pre-order with me and I’ll just send it out when the books are in (which is probably easiest), or you can check on on or Amazon come May 1st. Just let me know.
