This Time Next Year…

…I’ll have a new book out.

Last fall I had planned to write a summary of the book ideas I’ve had over the years as a way to officially put them on the back burner whilst in grad school. Well, unexpectedly and extraordinarily one of the proposals came through at the end of 2012.

The book is called Loves Me…Not: How to Survive (and Thrive!) in the Face of Unrequited Love and it is scheduled to be published in February 2014. Although the theme is different, this book will be similar to my other two in that it will include a mix of personal stories, history, pop culture, literature, and, of course, advice. If ever there was a subject matter that invites itself into all forms of creative expression it’s unrequited love. I’m going to tell the real story of The Little Mermaid (spoiler alert: very sad ending).

The manuscript is due soon, so I won’t be back to blogging until late spring. Over the next few months, I am going to work full time, take two classes (6 credits), and write a book. I’m not sure how I get myself into these things. I’m not complaining! These are good problems to have. I’m just amused that it’s all happening at once… I guess there is no other way.

    Pumped!! Loved you on the radio btw. Your voice is really soothing. It’s like listening to an audiobook but not one that makes you fall asleep.
