It’s almost here!
Laughing At The Dark: A Memoir of Motherhood And Mayhem will launch on April 15, and I can not wait for you to read it.
So many times over the course of this long and awful year, I didn’t think this book would ever see the light of day, but every time I thought about deep-sixing the whole thing, someone would remind me of why I wrote it in the first place. I wrote it because we all need reminders. We need someone to tell us that we aren’t alone. We need someone to tell us that shit happens but shit isn’t all there is. We need someone to tell us that failure happens but failure is only one part of the story. We need someone to tell us that beauty happens and that it matters even though we can’t hang onto it forever. We need someone to tell us we don’t have to take ourselves so seriously. We need someone to make us laugh, even when laughing isn’t exactly appropriate.
I’ve had those voices in my life this year, and I wouldn’t have made it without them. I hope Laughing at the Dark can be one of those voices for you.
You can pre-order the e-book now! Or if, like me, you prefer to hold out for a paperback you can hold in your hands, mark your calendar for April 15!
