What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger

A Proud Book Mama September 30, 2019

I’ve written a book I’m really proud of.

I know, I write a lot of books, and I love them. And people love them. And that’s all well and good, but I still have a massive case of imposter syndrome at the end of the day.

But I think this new book is really good. Like, not sidle up to people and be all like, “I wrote this thing and I think it’s good, and I think you’ll think it’s good, too.” I’m talkin’ like walk into a bar, order a martini, and say in carrying voice, “Yes, I am an author. Have you heard of my book?” and then pull out a fancy business card case while I schmooze with strangers and tell them all about how cool I am. You know, that concept scenario that generally sounds like a nightmare from hell.

But I’m really stinkin’ happy with this book!
