Greetings and salutations! I haven’t been on this blog for a hot minute. I feel it might make sense to eventually create content here at some point.
It’s a little crazy seeing some of these old posts. I was non stop stressed out for two years with the lawsuit and media… I had kind of lost my mind. Ok, not kind of… I flat out lost my shit. But I’m OK with that. Anyone in my position would have done the same.
I haven’t posted a whole lot because I have been without a laptop for almost a year! I was glued to my laptop during litigation so I’m cool with that. Maybe it’s time to get a computer again.
It’s been pretty crazy wrapping my head around being a published author. “Confessions of a Bad, Ugly Singer” the book is now a year old! Now that I have some distance from it, I see so many things I want to change. My mom likes to point out I repeat myself a lot. From a literary standpoint, I know the book can be better. There is absolutely an option to work on a second edition. I’m torn between promoting the one that is out now and taking a step back to make it tighter.
Its funny hearing little tidbits from readers. Many people agree that the silence of the P!NK camp is a little shocking. I’m glad it’s not just me! I can’t escape P!NK… she is everywhere!
One thing is for certain. I came out the other side. Sometimes it felt as if I never would. I sent a book to Carey Hart. It was rejected and sent back to Amazon. I also sent one to Roger Davies Management, P!NK’s mom and Eva Gardner. I believe in my heart if they really knew how serious all this was, somebody would say something.
The book that was sent to P!NK’s mom was forwarded a couple times and ended up in Sarasota.
A coworker of mine who is an astrologist did a read on my chart. Apparently it was in the cards for me to experience an “extreme loss of identity”. She showed me some crazy shit on a website that detailed that it would be a scary transition, but Ok once I landed.
There were so many times I wondered if P!NK Tributegate had any meaning at all… or if it was just a random event to live on from. She assured me that it does indeed have meaning, will tie into my life’s work and will evolve in a more positive ways ahead. She said my story arc is about half way over.
Collette’s Law is back to the drawing board. Luis Sepulveda is now in the Senate and we weren’t able to get past the Trial Lawyers’ Lobby… so I am figuring out how to revisit my advocacy work. It would have been huge had it passed. What matters is I tried and took a stand.
My book was pitched to Ian Anderson at the New York Post. Ian’s response after reading the back cover: You realize I work at The New York Post right? Classic.
For the first time in my life I have not sang very much. I miss it. The book took so much focus, I took a long break. I decided to just focus on getting inspired again.
I still live in New York City. I still want to go to Austin or Nashville or Knoxville but I still feel there is unfinished business here!
That’s it in a nutshell. Thank you to everyone who got the book!
