At least, it's like that for me.
But there is one story that's different. A little closer to home. It came from a place a little bit deeper inside me. It owns a little bit more of my heart...
And I'm scared for it to be out in the world. I'm nervous about how readers will like it or how they'll connect or NOT connect to it. I'm freaked out about how they'll feel about the character's journey and how the character deals.
I'm scared for people who I know personally to read it.
But I'm PROUD of this book. Of this character and their story and their growth. I'm glad I wrote it and I hope it gets into the hands of someone who will get something out of it. Someone who it will mean something too.
All of my books are like little pieces of my heart and it's a not always easy sending them out into the world.
I'm sure all authors have a book that's THIS one for me. Just as I'm sure readers do too...that book that you read and it's just a little bit more special to you than the rest. The story speaks to you in a different way.
Books are pretty incredible, aren't they?
