Yesterday I sent the first complete draft of the book to my friend and talented copy editor Julie. I completely reworked the ending because the first one as it was, was bullshit. I saw it and I’m sure you’d see it. The way it ends now is more honest. I can say that after months of editing and reworking and redoing and rewriting I am happy with how it turned out.
Who knows how this book will be received? I’m currently working on balancing dreaming about how publishing will go and what readers will respond to, and calibrating expectations because maybe it sells 100 books and that would be ok too. I’m excited to have the conversations about midlife identity. I hope to present and speak to lots and lots of people at conferences, book clubs and workshops.
