“Right now there may be a lid on who you are and everything
may fall apart when you start to take a look and re-imagine
life… but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a look, take a
chance to be whole. In fact, daring to take a look at the nature
of yourself and life itself may be the only thing that saves you.”
I Am Home, Kimberly Herndon
In case you haven’t heard, I was pregnant last year. I wish I could say I loved it… but I actually found only one thing redeemable other than the eventual birth of my son: his little baby kicks in utero. Those were awesome. Everything else just plain sucked. I was nauseous for 16 weeks STRAIGHT. Forget “morning” sickness. Hello “all day” sickness. Fatigue so bad it made a hangover seem like a better option. Hemorrhoids. Just, hemorrhoids. There’s nothing more that anyone ever needs to say to convey how awful those are. The never ending fountain of pee. My once active lifestyle put on hold because I simply didn’t have it in me to even do yoga… oh, and I developed a liver disorder that meant I was constantly worried that I would miscarry.
As Amy Schumer once said, “Women are f-ing warriors!” Damn straight! On top of all of that fun, I worked full time until the week before my baby was born and I was trying to market my first book (this book) at the same time. Let’s just say that marketing my book – as much as I yearned to get it out into the world – took a back seat. Like an almost invisible back seat.
So here we are. Living in reality. Promoting my book FOR REAL a mere 7 months after its publication. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how perfectly you show up. Just that you show up – even if you’re a little late to the party. This is me, this is my book, showing up.
To celebrate my newfound energy, I am putting my book on a price promotion! I Am Home is now available for $8.99 as a paperback and $2.99 as an ebook. Just click on the link below!
And, of course, warmest regards to you and your loved ones. I know these are tough times and my deep prayer is that my book brings some light into your lives.
Until we meet again,
