Post Kristine Wyllys Advice to Aspiring Authors
Since I first announced that I had a book deal, I’ve found myself being asked for advice more and more often. Sometimes, I’m able to distract the advice-seekers with pizza. I usually try. Because I’m not always convinced my brand of organized chaos is the best advice for someone to seek.

Have a child? A pet? An action figure you love more than most people? Perfect. Look at that thing. Imagine how much you love it and want to protect it. Now imagine handing it over to someone and that person takes one look at it, throws it on the ground, then lights it on fire while screaming that your face makes them wanna puke shards of their pelvis. Painful, right? Nearly unbearable? This is what putting a book out in the world is like. You’re giving your baby to someone to light on fire and puke pelvis shards on. Most people will not. Most people will be so wonderful it’ll make you want to cry. But every once in awhile, someone will have matches in their pocket. Make peace with that. Kristine Wyllys
