Hello once again to all my followers. I’m so pleased to be writing another blog. It’s been a very interesting few weeks, as many of you know I published my first book. Part autobiography and part commentary on society on disability issues. I was very hesitant to write this post because I didn’t want you as my readers to think I was just promoting my book. This is about how I feel after I finally clicked the publish button. Writing a book is hard. I want to say that first and foremost. Don’t knock creative people, it’s not easy putting yourself out there. It is by far from the best book in the world. I had four people go through looking for typographical errors and ways to improve it, and we still found a typo on the 4th page after one of my family members ask me to sign it.
It wasn’t about being perfect for me I wanted to show that people with disabilities can fall through on one of their dreams! I cried after I clicked release the book to the public. I could not believe it, one of the reasons why I started this website and blog is because I never thought I would publish my book. I I totally gave up on myself. I know it won’t make a lot of money but that’s fine with me. I’m hoping it will lead things I can’t even imagine. I am putting it all in God’s hands. This feels like the start of a new journey. People are usually afraid of new things, I’m one of those people. This feels different in a good way. Don’t stop dreaming friends, there’s always a bigger plan.
I want to end this with a really cool anecdote I spent the longest time trying to think of the perfect release date. Someday I’ll always remember. I was looking at the calendar backwards and forwards as I was getting notes back from beta readers. Then I just let it go. The book was published on July 25th 2021. For those of you who don’t know that was the 31th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act ADA. People with disabilities have value. We can and must be part of our communities. I will be back with more disability awareness blogs next week, thank you for reading this and have a great day. If you are interested in my book it is now available on Amazon.
