I'm excited for their new readers (how cool it would be to experience their work for the first time), I'm excited for all readers (because good books are FUN!), I'm excited for the authors themselves, and (oh sh*t, here's my confession)
I say this blushingly, and confusedly (because I don't 'get' why my ego is making such a big deal of this): I'm probably even more excited about being able to say "I know them".
I'm so excited about saying that I know them that I've stayed away from writing anything about their books here (or on FB or Twitter) - because I knew it was weird to be more excited about saying I know the authors than the fact that they each put out a way cool book (note to self: see if there's a local chapter of Egos Anonymous - or maybe Confused Egos Anonymous; if not, start one).
Let me get this out of my system: I know Pattie Mosca and Marney Makridakis (and there's probably at least a 50/50 chance that both of them could, if pressed, pick me out of a line-up -- not that I'm planning anything that'd get me into a line up - just sayin').
Ok. As exciting as that is (and I'm sure you've yet to catch your breath - grin) there's more:
There are Square-Peg interviews with both of these gals in the archives - where you can find out how they see themselves as Square-Pegs, what's been the hardest for them, how they maintain their Square-Pegness in a round-hole world, their favorite books (and more)! You can read them here:
And - on Monday I'll be sharing an in-depth interview with Pattie Mosca about her new book, Permission Slips...For Your Heart & Soul - and soon after I'll share a review of Marney Makridakis's Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life.
I'm just SO excited! (And so we're clear here: I've been talking about two cool authors, but only ONE ego - mine.)
