Oh, man. That’s pretty. You can read more about what I’m getting up to with MTV Books over here. It’s a privilege to get pubbed with this slate (all the books sound amazing, especially Daniel Kraus’).
Anyway, I bragged. Got that out of my system.
Thanks to my agent (aka the greatest hype man of all time, like Flava-Flav level hype man), my editor, and the folks who have been sounding boards for my frustrations and worries.
That said, none of this is possible without the support of my partner. She’s the reason any of this happened. Nearly ten years ago, I found myself in a pretty dark place after some traumatizing shit went down. She convinced me to get back into writing for my mental well-being and I got the idea that maybe after all this time, I had something to say that people would want to hear.
Never in a million fucking years did I think I’d achieve even a single publication credit let enough alone finally landing a deal with Simon & Schuster. I can’t explain how grateful I am to anyone who would take the time to read anything I write. Even this rambling nonsense.
The weird thing about moments like this is that I’m happy, but never satisfied. I’m nowhere near done yet. Trust me. There’s so much left to do.
