One of my favorite things to do is give author talks for book clubs! It's terrifying to be in the presence of people who have had the opportunity to dissect my inner thoughts. But I love chatting with readers, hearing how my work has impacted them, and answering questions. It's so fulfilling when I get the chance to see my work through the filter of someone else's heart. I have gained valuable insight that helps propel future projects and critiques that help me set my sights on bigger goals. I always come away feeling the blessings that come when we expose our vulnerabilities.
