Here we are only a few days away from the official release of Driftwood and I still don’t feel like it is real. (What REALLY freaks me out is the idea of my voice in a stranger’s ear reading the audiobook version)

I am, by nature, reclusive. Writing works well with that. Marketing? Not so much. But I am all about the game face. And I really am rather excited to get out there and share the book with people. The reception so far has been really warm and positive. That’s good. I can handle the not-so-nice stuff, too, should it pop up. What is important is that I love the book I wrote. Everyone gets their own take on things. Don’t like the book? That’s cool. I hope you find one that connects with you.

I can’t wait to read locally and then head out to California to spread the “Driftword.” I have cool stuff to hand out at the readings and I am eager to just connect with people over words and stories.

I am a firm believer in artful living. Let’s celebrate all of our creative achievements, no matter the scale, and just be overjoyed to be here in the first place. I have recalibrated the way I look at book marketing. I am not buying into the competition and numbers game. That is someone else’s job or calling. I want to share my work and connect on a human level. I want to go through all this with an open heart and healthy sense of adventure. I don’t want to lose the loose, artful elements of it all.

I look forward to seeing so many of you in Cheraw on 11/6, Chesterfield on 11/11, San Francisco on 11/13, and Los Angeles on 11/15.

In the meantime, stay rad and remember to review the book when you get a chance.
