I feel like a twelve-year-old girl deciding which classmates to invite to a birthday sleepover.
What I came to realize is that names are irrelevant. Identifying my friends and family members would detract from my story, and it is my story.
Today I have the privilege of being a guest blogger for author Marlena Smith! I am a follower and fan, and appreciate this opportunity to introduce a few fun book facts about Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down. Check out my post here: https://mylife428.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/meet-tina-truax/
Writing a memoir is tiring. I enjoyed the process, the things I’ve learned about myself, and even revisiting the challenging times that have made me the strong, thriving woman I am today, but now is the crucial time for book business.
While my friends and41xeub1r5bl colleagues are all atwitter about flowers and candy, date night and all things mushy, I sit in silent grief. I’m used to it now, after so many years, but it doesn’t get easier.
I’ve been underestimated for most of my life in one way or another, but mostly because of my blonde hair, outgoing & cheerful personality, and my ability to laugh at myself and not take life too seriously.
So many friends and fans have been anxiously awaiting my book baby. Nobody has waiting longer than me. It had to be the right time, and I had to be in the right place and frame of mind to do it right.
