Slow Love, are being shipped out, and I recently got mine. I'm so excited to finally see it--and I feel like I did when I was a first time mother in the maternity ward, afraid to take the diaper off my new baby, afraid he might fall apart if I unwrapped him! Now I've been in labor long enough to birth an elephant, and I'm afraid to take off the book's jacket or look inside, for fear that the pages will be blank! Classic Writer Nightmare.
The book looks beautiful. Thank you to publisher Jim Atlas, Lauren LeBlanc, my editor, Sara Stemen, the copy designer, and Gabriele Wilson, the jacket designer. I love the size, it could slip into a pocket and feels like a little gift. (You can order by clicking here.) It is interesting that so far the media has focused on how honest I am about getting thrown off balance by losing my job. What's the point of writing if you don't dig deep? But SLOW LOVE is mostly about a journey back to equilibrium--indeed, into the happiest and most productive state I've enjoyed in ages. That's why I wrote the book, and that's the message I want to share: There is a way out of heartbreak and confusion.
