When I posted that FAQ the other day, I neglected to include the question I get most often: Why don’t you write a book?
I left the book question out because A) I thought it sounded pretentious to include something like that, and B) If I admit to the Internet that I’m working on a book, then I actually have to follow through and write a book.
Then, it occurred to me that Internet pressure to follow through is exactly what I require. So here goes…
I’m going to write a book.
It is equal parts flattering and scary, having people you respect tell you to write a book. Their statements imply that people would read it, but there’s no guaranteeing anyone actually would…
Whatevs. I’m doing it.
I’m going to self-publish, unless you know a publishing house who will have me. Who knows, maybe one day, I’ll have my own session at The Southern Festival of Books. A gal can dream.
Wish me luck!
And save up because I fully expect ya’ll to buy at least 10 copies each.
Great idea! I love it already. My very good friend, Casey Livingston is an editor with her own business here in aspen. I would love to introduce you to her should you need editing services. It would be a perfect relationship because she, similarly to you, just up and quit and started her own thing. And she’s a very recent mama (2 weeks!) too!
How thoughtful, April! I’d love to know your friend. I believe it will take a village to publish this book, just as it has to help me raise my child 🙂
Best news! It’s guaranteed to sell. Please put my 10 copies on reserve :). Good luck Margie-it will be great!
