As I Tiptoe Onto the Minefield

I am back!

My kids are now in school.  I've created and emailed contracts to the faculty of our 4-state Wild Wild Midwest SCBWI Conference in 2013. And my book was "officially" released September 1!

So now is the time to promote it, right? Hooray!

And by "hooray" I mean: holy yikes.

I feel like I'm stepping onto a minefield. And I don't even mean because of the contents or title of my book, which is another thing all together. I mean this world of reviewers and authors and animosity and misinterpretation spooks me.

But I'm going to try my best for the sake of my publisher, my career and mostly for anybody out there that Rape Girl may possibly help. I just hope I can do it with only very minor explosions.

Anyone stepping out there with me? How do you feel about it?  


  1. Congrats on the official release of your book. I can't wait to read it!

  2. Yes, congrats!!! I have it on my to-read list (as you can see on Goodreads). :) Now to find the time...oy.

    I wish I were stepping out with you. Some day... :)

  3. I haven't stepped onto that minefield (yet!), but I am cheering you on every step of the way. I LOVE your book!!!

  4. you know it! I just got started myself, as you know--suddenly! So without a plan, I'm bravely charging out into the ocean. Paddle over and do some CPR if you see me going down for the third time--LOL! :D

    Good luck! I know that post we did gets loads of traffic. Yours is a powerful book w/an important message. I bet you do GREAT!!! :o) <3


I never bite the hand that comments
