So many of you have told me that you’re reading my new memoir, The Long Awakening. This means the world to me. I worked on this book for ten years and for it to finally be out in the world drenches me in joy and grace and gratefulness. I wrote it because I had to; some books cannot stay inside you. When I write I immerse myself in the story, the craft, the shape and heart of it, with utter honesty, working, bleeding, to find what the story is supposed to be.
When I’m done creating and have worked to make a little bit of art to the best of my ability, and finally, finally launch it out into the world I have one thought.
It’s for you.
The book is no longer mine, but for you to take from it what you will. The act of writing is for me, but what it becomes is yours.
To those of you who’ve read it, want to, or have supported it in any way, I want to say thank you again and again until my voice and heart are raspy from the saying.
Would you like to be part of my launch team?
Staying put in front of my computer and behind my pen to work on new projects holds appeal, but now it’s time to join my publisher in sharing this book with others.
If you’d like to actively help spread the word about The Long Awakening and be part of the book launch team with some free gifts and special opportunities, sign up below for more details and to join the team. Limited space is available.
This is my heart book. I will always write, but I’ll never live another story like this, God willing.
