Seventy-five Days of Phobias Day 74: Fear is My Success

22033Kids, throughout the last 74 days I’ve been teetering on the brink of Kakorrhaphiophobia. Seventy-five Days is a looooooong time to take on for a series for the lead in to a book launch.

Luckily, as Olivia says to Maxwell in Driving in Neutral, “Everyone’s scared of something.”  Luckily,  the writing, reading, reviewing, and publishing community is amazingly supportive. There was no need for me to be kakorrhaphiophobic. There was no need for me to fear failure of this series because I am surrounded by others who confess to deeper, darker fears than mine or those of the characters in Driving in Neutral.

I am grateful and very, very pleased that I faced my fear of failure. And I am indebted to everyone who participated in this celebration of fear and celebration of my love story about claustrophobia. Driving in Neutral is out tomorrow. Thank you for fearing, thank you for reading, and thank you for your support.
