After five years of struggling with writing my story, weekly therapy visits to help re-live the hardest scenes, postponing writing because of self-doubt, surviving a brutal review during an intense writing retreat in Guatemala, feeling sorry for myself, trashing the whole project, then starting all over – I’ve come to a new road.
I’m saying “FUCK IT” to the fear – and self-publishing.
I’m in the final stages of re-writes and landed an editor today.
It’s all happening.
2015 is gonna be one helluva year.

Congrats on your book! I love your blog it’s so candid, full of true life adventures and pain! To me it’s very relateable. If the cover art is any indication of the content it should be very, ahem, interesting! Lol Please post when you’re published. I will be first in line to purchase a copy. Best of luck!
Whoa !!! I’ve got goosebumps for you !!! Really excited by this post and its news, definitely top of my wish list for 2015 and can’t wait for it to happen. In a way, I wonder if self publishing was always the way it was meant to be, non mainstream, flying in the face of doubters and doing it your own way. Perfect. Wishing you all the best foe your efforts !!!
Congratulations, Christine! You’re a great writer! Wishing you great success!
