A Contract, a Date, a Plan

Running in Silence will be published this October.
At least, that’s the plan. A big part of it depends on how well publication tasks progress. Because even though I sighed with relief once I submitted the manuscript to Koehler Books, I knew the work was not yet done.

I understand that I have plenty of work ahead, and that this venture in my life isn’t going to be a fantastic source of income (I’ve understood this from the beginning). But that’s never been the point. What fuels me to work so hard, to want this published so badly, is the passion I have to help sufferers to know that they are not alone–that there are ways to work through it, and that we can have a voice. The amount of relief I felt in understanding my body more and in finding others who went through the same thing, makes me want sufferers to feel that same relief and empowerment–and find happiness in their life like I have. I want to bring to light the lies we are told about food, our bodies, and what equates “success,” because I felt I have been duped ever since I was a young girl.
I want us all to stop running in silence, and I can’t wait to bring my thoughts, experiences, and suggestions to life.

One Response to A Contract, a Date, a Plan

  1. You work harder and learn faster than just about anyone I know–a blessing to your readers, your editor, your publisher, and yourself. This book is going to be a great gift to anyone out there who has ever wrestled with addiction, with self-loathing, with the terrible fear of not being perfect, with the terrible fear of not being enough, and with the damaging idea of success that most of us learn.

    You are going to help a lot of people, Rachael.
