Then, I collapsed. Exhausted. I guess I did well. I've sold about 300 copies by now. That's supposedly pretty good for a first book from a new author who was not previously famous for anything else.
But something just didn't seem right. It's taken me awhile to ponder the whole picture. I've come to realize that trying to "save the world" by getting my message out to millions of people is just not the right path for me. So, what am I here for instead?
Then I remembered one of the many suggestions others have given me throughout this entire publishing process. What about PFLAG? What about BAGLY? Go talk to them! That means I will visit groups of LGBT youth, parents, friends, etc. to appear on panels or answer questions as they all try to navigate through this world. A world that still has plenty of homophobia, transphobia, etc. to deal with.
So that's what I'm doing now. Please wish me the best.
