At long last, it’s here. Happy Publication Day, everyone!
I’ll keep this quick because, well, I have to. The first day of publication of your first book only happens once, and so far, I’m positively drunk on the excitement, hammered on reality, and I want to keep soaking it in. I feel like a Drake song. We started at the bottom (or, the floor, more accurately)…
… And now we’re here.
We are also located at the precise moment when a dream comes to life. When all the struggles and deleted chapters, the late nights and no weekends, the people who told you you couldn’t, the ones who doubted, the jobs that had to be done to make room for the life you were creating, all the parts of yourself that second-guessed, stressed, and feared… they become worth it. They are part of this moment, too.
But, most of all, this moment is about love and gratitude and handing something over to the world, to you, and, saying, “Here, I made you this. I hope you like it.”
