Publishing opens up the vulnerability factor.
Ahh … the joy of publishing your book. The first … the next. The phone rings. A text is received. An email is requesting the pleasure of your you—your wisdom and insights—that your authordom has generated.
It’s a good thing … and sometimes a tad scary.
With the publication of your words … a book … the vulnerability factor is awakened.
You, dear author, are stark naked.
Critics bubble up—poking, preying, covertly envious that it was YOU and not they that didn’t have the guts to put their words on display.
Are you ready?
