But they said yes. Every single one I asked said yes.
And what would have happened had they said no? Would it have killed me? No. I would have been a little sad. Perhaps embarrassed for having asked. But it still would have been a brave thing to do. I believe in my book. They would have had their reasons, but it wouldn't mean I did anything wrong by asking.
It is amazing the help that is there if you are brave enough to ask for it. Here are three endorsements. I'll have more coming in soon. I am humbled. Flattered. Grateful. Happy.
"Michelle O'Neil is a true writer, dedicated to sharing her story and experience with others. To read her work is to be inspired. She is a truly perseverant spirit." –JENNIFER LAUCK, author of New York Times Bestseller, Blackbird, Still Waters, Show Me the Way and Found.
And a bonus I didn't even ask for from a GeekMom at Wired.com who "devoured Daughter of the Drunk at the Bar overnight."
I am so moved by these wonderful endorsements. I feel so much appreciation for writers who help other writers.
Thank you, thank you!
