This has been such an amazing adventure. If you asked me a year ago if I ever thought I would release Unlove the answer would have been a definitive “NO!”
Yet, one year later here I am and for once, the Universe seems to be playing along with me. Not that this journey has been without its perils. There were many days along the way when I really wanted to give up. Like the day I spent trying to figure out if I needed to get an ITIN or an EIN # from the IRS. That almost sent me around the bend. Oh, and what about the day when I was ready to show my book to my Editor (who also happens to me the love of my life), and all the formatting was completely gone. I mean GONE! My melt-down that day was EPIC. Not even Oprah could bring me back from the edge that night … LOL.
None of that mattered the night that I saw Unlove on my iPad mini (aptly named Ophelia.) I stared at my book, as it sat on that little wooden bookcase on the iBookstore and just started balling. Even if no one ever bought my book, I knew I would always treasure that moment. I was so proud of myself. I actually fulfilled the unspoken dream, of a tormented 15 year old girl. I was an author.
Now, if only I could figure out how to channel my inner Ann Wilson …
