Jumping for joy over here! I will be a part of TWO Barnes and Noble events during their Teen Book Festival weekend. June 11th at 4:00 p.m. in Morris Plains, NJ and June 12th at 2:00 p.m. in Springfield, NJ.
I’m so excited I could do a back flip but I can’t!
Just a little backstory about these events, I may have mentioned this in a previous post but who the fuck cares I’m saying it again. The day before I received emails about these events was a bad day for me. It’s not like the whole world was against me, more like I was against myself type day. I just kept telling myself my writing was going no where and then bam! these two events show up. Even bigger BAM! I am attending both! This is incredible. Truly. I am honored. There are no words to describe how excited I am.
There are days, weeks, sometimes month when I feel like I’m nothing and then this falls into my lap. Especially when almost everyone looks at me like I’m crazy when I tell them this is what I want to do. This is what I love to do. I never really experienced many passions in my life (although I’m only 22), but this is the one I always loved but almost never shared with anyone. It was the secret that kept me sane. Now, I’m sitting here posting about how I’m going to Barnes and Noble. Barnes and Noble! Not even local bookstores will take me because I’m self-published. This is amazing. Again, there is no way to explain how this feels.
