what the hell did I make a book for

I created the print version in 2016, don’t really advertise it much, what the hell did I do this for? never about the $, maybe about the pride – the ebook came out in 2017. I gotta continue try giving it wings like the monarch – flies away🦋then returns –

Since creating the ebook version, I had the bulk of the print books sent to my home – my mom and I were planning to have a grand  time peddling, love of the monster, at fab autumn-fests throughout the Hudson Valley. Since my beautiful mom had a stroke – plans have changed. For now boxes will remain in my closet ’til my heart cheers.

  1. I’ll buy them all from you! Don’t get down Love Of The Monster is an awesome book. People may give it a cult following. Don’t get on yourself for trying and if you don’t get the results just keep trying. I loved all your work and I am not the only one. Go for your dreams always AnnMarie! Beautiful woman Beautiful talent Beautiful book!

  2. Answer: Because you’re a writer.

    Dammit, AM, that last graph is a tear-jerker, a palpable, tender sadness. I can see you and Millie wandering about the HV selling your books, talking to folks. I know she’d be your best bookseller. Who knows that it still can’t happen—but maybe in another way you just can’t imagine.
