It’s a passion, a calling, something I do almost daily.
I write in my journal. I write posts that never meet the “publish” button. I write content for other people, companies, and government agencies.
I write for money, and I write for free. I write for audiences, but more than anything I write for myself.
So to say this book project is simply a bucket list item would be a lie. Lose the Cape is filled with my voice, my tone, my sarcasm, my humor and my heart.
It shares my stories, my kids, my husband and my philosophy on motherhood. I’ve had a writing partner along the way, and I know she feels the same way.
So if you’re a friend or family member or simply a follower in the virtual world, I’d love for you to give it a read. Not because I’m looking to get rich with this book. I know too much about the publishing world to make that the ultimate goal.
Instead I’d just appreciate your support. Many of my words I keep private, but I’d like to share this particular work with an audience, and I think you can help spread the word.
You say you’re a dude or a dad or not a mom?
Grab the book for your own mom or wife or sister or girlfriend. She’ll appreciate it. You may even wish to thumb through it to get a better sense of the mom psyche.
You say you don’t do books?
Come on, reading is cool. Give it a try. This isn’t War and Peace. It’s fun. It’s light. It’s life.
You say you don’t have time?
That is why we’ve written this book in chunks. Read a blurb a day, whiz through a chapter in 15 minutes. Or take your time and reference it when you’d like. There’s no deadline to finish it. No English lit pop quiz at the end.
You say you don’t have money?
Pre-order the book on Amazon for $2.99 for your Kindle or $9.99 for print. I’m certain your Starbucks tab for the week is higher.
You say you don’t want to support me?
OK, I understand. I just shed a tear, but I get it. But there are other writers to support, so find a book, find an author, find an artist you love and support him or her. Writers, musicians and artists all pour themselves into their work – the least we can do is support their craft every so often.
You say you want me to stop writing about this project?
Can’t promise you that, but I will ease up on the promotion in a few weeks. Pinky swear. In fact, maybe I’ll start the next book.
Thanks in advance for your support and encouragement!
