It seems like my books are making their way across the world. This past week I got a letter from a 12-year-old girl in Bangladesh who has read both “The Curious Case of the Creepy Cave” and “The Secret Code of the Heartbeat Drum” and has seen all my videos on YouTube and loves them all. I was so touched, honored and thankful. Made even Caruso happy-
Because anyone who knows me knows how difficult the marketing aspect of indie publishing and filmmaking is for me. It’s not natural for me- because you see throughout my life, you see, I had to do everything I could to make myself invisible, it was a means of survival. But getting this letter this week, and last month, seeing reaction videos of kids belly laughing while reading my books, it brings me to tears of gratitude and joy. Makes me want to stand up and say ‘here I am, this what I do.’ Makes me want to keep going, no matter how difficult it gets. And I am so grateful for that.
