My truths at least
Thank you for this Sara!!!
Oh my god. This is all so... accurate. I cried. Seriously, it’s amazing and it’s fucking hell and I don’t know how else to describe it.
I’m proud of you for your perseverance (can I be proud of an internet stranger?) I don’t know if I would have stuck it out. Congratulations.
Me taking copious notes to remember for when my book comes out this summer. Thank you so much for sharing!
I just shared this with my dear friend who published her first (incredible!!) book last year. From the snippets she’s shared with me of her journey, it sounds like she might relate to this!
Thank you so much for sharing all of this. FWIW, I loved the book a lot and am hoping to talk my book club into it as an option for later this summer (we've never done a non-fiction book before but I feel like yours would be perfect for us!).
A lot of this all tracks for me too with having a first book come out and honestly glad to see some of my same feelings reflected in the ups and downs other authors go through too.
Also I saw they were selling your book at the Mom 2.0 conference and meant to take a picture of it and failed but it was there in case you did not already know :)
Whew, this was a gift to read. Thank you!!
Hugs and yes and hard relate!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
The process is overwhelming!!! I just submitted a manuscript in January for a regional nonfiction book I co-wrote with another local author. This will be my first book through a traditional publisher. The whole process is daunting!!! My co-writer already had an established relationship with the publisher, which made that part of it fairly easy.
I identified with so much of what you have written here!!
I am horrible at self promotion, but I’m so excited about this book and I feel comfortable promoting it because it doesn’t feel like I’m promoting myself! I’m hoping this experience will help me do better with promoting my own solo work in the future.
I’m so proud of you!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Just reread this and plan to every morning before pub day
OMG, the honesty and clarity of this! Thank you for sharing all the ups and downs, of which there are so many, and letting us into the world you live with your writing.
Thank you for speaking the truth and sharing all the emotional complexities that we experience as humans! Your writing and your voice is so real and so refreshing- and helpful as someone who dreams of someday writing more!!
