It’s the night before my second book is coming out, and I’m sitting here at my computer thinking about how fast the last year has gone. It really does feel like it was just the other day my first book, Article 5, came out, and here I am again, on the eve of a second book release, happy and worried and nervous and well, a little exhausted. But in the best way.
I’d love to say this past year I’ve grown a thick skin, that negative reviews don’t faze me, that I don’t chew my nails down to nothing when people tell me they’re reading my book. But these things aren’t true. I think maybe the sensitivity helps the creative process. I used to think writing a book ended at the writing, but I know better now. It ends with the reader, and maybe not even then. And because you’ve taken a chance to share this journey with me, I thank you. I’ve laid a piece of my soul out for you to see, and feel honored that you have chosen to hold it in your hands. Just for a little while, anyway.
Thank you for reading my books. I know nowadays there are a million things to do every day, and it takes dedication to sit down and read. I appreciate you choosing Breaking Point. I do hope you enjoy it.
