What’s Your Book About?

What’s your book about?

The dreaded question.

One that keeps me up at night.

Cousins, aunts, uncles, church members, random people on the street. Like, I don’t even know this person but my grandmother does, and how in the world did you find out I wrote and how can I be expected to tell you? *end rant*

I’m not one who knows what to say at the spur of the moment. I wake up at midnight two days later thinking of the perfect response. Too late.

It’s hard to tell people about your baby, and the story on your heart. So here are some serious responses you can give when you get asked The Question. Sarcasm anyone?
