Hey guys. I am beyond thrilled to write this blog as a few weeks ago, I signed a deal with a publisher, and I’m over the moon! My book, The Silence in the Sound, will tentatively debut in August 2022 with Koehler Books. And while I think I’d finally be able to breathe again as I have been waiting for this moment (praying, manifesting, bargaining), I realize I am again, just getting started.
Writing to then getting published has so many stages, highs, and lows I often felt I’d need to admit myself to the psychiatric ward for a much-needed break. The amount of knowledge I’ve learned through this process is mind-blowing, and while there were a few times I got it right, I also took many turns in directions that, in hindsight, were foolish wastes of time and some just plain, plain, plain crazy. I am not claiming to be an expert or know a fraction of what experts might regarding writing, the process, and how to get your book out to the world, I can only speak to my journey, and I hope you’re here for it.
With all of this, I thought I’d talk about my book, how I started, where I am, and the madness in between, so I hope you come along for the ride while I relive the past few years—at least what I think might be the helpful or humorous parts. I might need an extra therapy appointment or three, but hey, I got a book coming out for you all to read!
PS. If you could be so kind as to like me on social media and subscribe to my mailing list on my website, I promise I won’t inundate you with rubbish. Just a newsletter here and there and a biweekly blog post. I swear.
PSS. Thanks for reading.
