Samantha Perkins on the Anxiety of Launching Your First Book
Samantha Perkins had all the anxiety that any first-time author has. Except she had more. Her book, after all, is about anxiety—well, anxiety that was exacerbated by drinking. That book, Alive AF: One Mom's Journey to Becoming AF, has not only become a #1 bestseller but has also ushered in a plethora of opportunities—including coaching, speaking, writing assignments and more. And I had a front-row seat through all of it, since I walked her through the process of writing her story and sat back proudly as she took what I'd guided her through and ran with it. In this episode, we talk about when she knew she was going to follow through on her desire to write a book, the anti-climax of release day and the emotional hangover no one tells you about, among many other topics.
