One hundred and eighteen total pounds (pounds!) of my own books sit in my apartment today. That is the point where you pinch yourself. The gratitude is high.
I spent four consecutive hours last night signing, stuffing, sealing, stamping and addressing. My living room is buried underneath bubble mailers, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thank you to everyone who donated so much as a dollar to this project. Who read the book or shared the book or reviewed the book. Otherwise, I’d still be here with just my notebook and a pen.
Books will be showing up at people’s houses this week. I ask that you kindly take a moment to review it on GoodReads or Amazon once you’ve read it. I need the organic growth that only good word of mouth can produce.
As for future plans, I will pen a Mascara Book 2 at some point this year, likely in the Fall. For now I am working on a new book called Color Inside which I hope to finish by August. I also have plans to start a kids book (title withheld) sometime in between. With a little luck, my subsequent projects won’t require crowd sourcing because Penguin Random House will call me this year.
Lastly, I am sending a copy of the book to a few special teen idol celebrities. Keep your fingers crossed that someone gets caught reading it on camera. That’s all it takes is one cameo in the hands of T Swift.
Thank you again.
