First off, let me say I think it’s fabulous that you’re publishing a memoir about your son. Even though it’s a sad topic and, given a choice, you probably would have given up your writing life altogether for Silvan to be healthy, I’m glad this book is in the world. Holding Silvan is a great title, by the way.
Thanks. I needed to hear that. In fact, this is something I literally repeat inside my head: “It‘s good that I’m publishing this book.” Otherwise, I feel nothing but anxiety.
Anxiety? I didn’t know you suffered from that.
I didn’t either. But it must be pretty common before the publication of any book, let alone a first book like this.
