Update #18 - I like big reviews and I cannot lie.. April 22, 2021

Hello beautiful subscribers! 
Thank you for your hanging with me on this self-publishing journey. 

I have 17 thoughtful, heart-felt reviews on Amazon and the book is still a#1 New Release in Circus Arts and Modern Dance!

Click here if you'd like to get a copy of the e-book or paperback.

Thank you for your time and energy with your purchases and reviews if you've already written one, in addition to all the shares and posts and things I don't see because I am still a social media sophomore. 

I'm so grateful for everyone who preordered! You should be receiving your paperbacks now-ish. You might think it's creepy but Amazon is sending me photos of where they've dropped them off on your porches. So I have pics of your porches and I'm playing a game with myself matching them up with whose porch I think it is. 

I am not winning at my own game.  

I digress.  

Back to reviews which are TREMENDOUSLY helpful 
in spreading the good word 
and attracting a larger audience!!

Pre-launch, my friend Sierra asked me what would need to happen to feel like my book was a 'success.' 

I said: "If/when I receive one review from someone - who I don't know- who has read the book and shared that it was in any way helpful, useful, supportive, or even some vague, general positive force for them then, for me, the book will have been a success."

While still waiting on that one review I started singing the Zoe Lewis' "Small is Tremendous" to myself. 

If you don't fancy accordions, you might not want to have a listen but, accordions aside, small is tremendous! 

I share that to say thank you for your reviews! 

Thank you and please keep them coming! 
They don't have to be long. 
Short and sweet is perfect. 

My recent favorite - a friend pretending not to be one - is below along with a picture of what comes up when I search for my name in Amazon.
# irony (if you've read the book there's an entire chapter on eating disorders). 
My book is more affordable AND healthier for ya.

With love and gratitude, 


5.0 out of 5 stars SO Inspiring (but not in that overused sense of the word)

"I just finished reading this book, which a friend recommended to me in advance of a long plane ride. I get restless and need to find a perfect book will lure and captivate so you can’t put it down. This book… I can’t say enough. Her storytelling is incredible, and with every piece of her history, I could feel her strength, emotion, HUMOR, and felt like I was experiencing it all myself. It wasn’t a linear story but was told in a very connective way and it was clear to see how each meaningful event caused her to grow through pain and healing. 

As illustrated through a beautiful metaphor about Japanese pottery, I think the most compelling essence was how she seems to be like a fragile child and a powerhouse of strength all at once – a thrilling combination. You can feel the true consequences of the mistakes of her youth, things she did under mental duress and immaturity – and it’s so rewarding to see it synthesized into how this has given her the growth and wisdom you can receive only from going through sh!t. Life is messy, but somehow the story is told in a neat and satisfying way. 

Last week I would have told you I had nothing to share or offer from my own life, it’s boring, but after finishing this book (I cried) but also feel empowered to write my own story down. I worry I’m losing my memory as my head gets increasingly cloudy, so it would be good at least to have my own memoir. And if no one ever reads it or cares… ‘so what’ (in the words of Ali’s therapist)."

Thank you for helping Breakdown, break it down, in the best way possible!
