My new book, Finding Emma, is live!
Today’s the day! I can’t believe it’s finally here! It’s a strange feeling knowing that so much of yourself is now out there for people to read and judge, but I’m way more at peace this time around than I thought I’d be. Maybe that’s just because the personal aspects out of this book are so honest for me and I don’t regret putting that much of myself in this book.
If you know me, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly where Emma and I intersect (as well as where one ends and the other begins), but for those of you who don’t know, please make sure to read my author’s note at the very end of the book for an explanation. I’ve explained which parts are inspired by my life and which parts are fiction (although the best fiction always has a little bit of truth to it, doesn’t it?) as well as explained where the inspiration for this story came from. The glaringly obvious detail (can’t tell you–it’s a spoiler!!) isn’t anything that happened to me, but the rest of the smaller details, the more honest details, are true pieces of my former life that I’ve woven into the narrative. It was as cathartic as it was terrifying, but I don’t regret it. In fact, writing this book helped me close that chapter of my life and now, I’m looking forward to writing the next chapter.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions! After you read Finding Emma and want to know which parts were specific to me and which were primarily specific to Emma, I’d love to hear from you! You can contact me through Twitter or Facebook (the links are at the bottom of my website here) or you can do it through good ol’ fashioned email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
