I’m thrilled to show off the brand new cover of my book, I’m scared & doing it anyway: How a little white blob changed my life. [Thanks to Rebecca Nolen and Lisa Helfert for the beautiful design and photography.]
I hope you like it!
This is a chance to revisit a story that I love, and love sharing. I learned first hand that I have the power to change my life in immeasurable ways, even in the darkest moments. You have it, too.
Are you scared & doing it anyway?
Do you know someone who is?
In the readings and conversations I’ve had since my book was published in 2013, I’ve found that it most resonates with two groups: fear-facers like you and me, and concerned loved ones feeling at a loss for how to help someone else in crisis.
Inside these pages is a chance to come along on my journey, and to see the choices I made that turned my greatest fear into unabashed, arms-outstretched l-o-v-e.
It will help you find the courage within yourself to keep moving forward, and it will help you to be there for others in a new way.
You may wonder why I’ve chosen now to change the cover.
I was too afraid to use the one I should have from the beginning. The one with My Face on it.
I’m not the first writer to hide behind her words — nor the first speaker who still hides even though she has stood in front of hundreds of people, and hugged on television.
It’s different when it’s your book, your cover, your face…but then it isn’t. I love my story, and am as excited to share it today as I was when I started writing. I want you to gain meaning and inspiration from it, and then I want you to share it with the people you care about. (And, please hug them!)
If you like the new cover so much that you want a new copy, that’s great!
There is a sale on the paperback until the end of the month.
From now through Sunday, March 1, you can buy it for $6.50, half-off the original price ($12) , which just covers the publisher’s printing costs. Click here to purchase your copy.
If you’re in New York or Washington, DC, I will happily hug my way to you and sign it in person.
Please know that your support of this little-book-that-could has meant the world to me. I’m continuing to write, and share, because you are out there.
Thank you for that.
