Yay! I have Birthed My First Book

So. . .yeah! I wrote a book. As if the title of this post didn't tell you enough. I wrote a whole book! Oh my! Everything that has led up to this moment, and everything that’s yet to come has left me completely in awe. I can't believe it!

I Present To You 'He Wasn't My Husband'

Clap. Clap. Clap.

I can't stop thinking about how impossible it is to have my name and face on a book cover. I dreamt of this. Yes, I did! And I am not sure about what to do now because I am too excited.

First, I was scared. I was scared about writing. Who will read it? I had no idea how to write a book. I wasn’t confident that my story would be interesting, or worse, that anyone would read it. Exposure was also a great fear. I kept worrying over what will my mum think? What will my friends say? Thankfully, I overcame that phase.

Then, I was anxious. I was anxious about my title (Yep! I knew the title of my book long before I started writing it). What do I say? I knew what I wanted to say but I needed to be completely honest with myself about why and what I want to write.

Writing is like being responsible and claiming ownership of yourself in order to become the person you know you can be. Writing a book is making your mark on the world. It is your cri de coeur. But bridging that gap can be a struggle. You will have to push yourself far outside your comfort zone. So glad I got through that phase. Phew.

And today, I am super duper excited!

Ever since my editor, Ify Halim and few other persons who I trusted with the manuscript told me how much they loved it, I have been screaming, jumping and dancing all over the place. It feels really good to push. To deliver. To have a baby.

Oh, I can't keep calm!

So let me tell you what this book is about!

He Wasn't My Husband is a self-help memoir that will challenge your perception about your past relationships that didn't lead to marriage. I have never written anything that meant more to me than the words in this book.

He Wasn't My Husband is me telling the truth. My truth. I am literally ripping my heart out open. It is not a story about pain, it is not one carved out of sheer imagination, fantasies or fairytales. It is, on the other hand, my true life story . . . the story lived through the very fibres of my heart. It's about the amazing, life-changing, heart-healing freedom I found before I got married.

And I desperately desire that it will be precious to you as it is to me. I have talked a bit about it here and here and there. Go check it out.

If you are not following me on Instagram, you might not know that I made a big deal about revealing the cover design 😁

Today, June 26 — being my birthday — I officially bring the story to the stage. I finally feel it is time to tell the world the title of my book. Lol.

Available on Amazon

Yes. Yes. Yes.

A child is born! But this is not the end of the story.


Happy Birthday To Me. Yay!
