Some of you know that my original plan to market The Love Factor was to send baskets of scrunchies to wlw bookstores all over the world. Then COVID-19 happened, bookstores closed, and the Trump administration attempted to dismantle the US Postal Service. It just didn't seem like a good time.
Recently, though, I spent all of November working through line edits of Worthy of Love—my forthcoming book about a disgraced attorney forced to work retail in rural Virginia.
Weeks of hard work depleted my willpower, and I found myself surrendering to my impulses in all other areas of life.
"I deserve this," I'd whisper to myself as I placed orders for tacos, cake, shoes.
Then one day, I was browsing swag vendors on Etsy, and before I could stop myself... this happened.
