It is surreal to search my name and see my book pop up on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. It is a strange feeling to pick up my book and physically hold it in my hands. To flip through the pages and see my words typed out in such an official format. I know the exact moment that I wrote almost every passage. Over the last several months, I quietly sat and thought to myself about so many of these stories, reliving some truly awful, shameful memories of my past over and over again through the editing process.
The thoughts and ideas that I worked on for almost two years is a culmination of effort put forth through months of sober recovery. The words and feelings that were bottled up and stuck inside, buried under years of alcohol and pain, came pouring out as soon as I gave myself the chance. I have processed a lot and worked through tons of emotions.
Two years ago around this time, alcohol still played a major role in my life. However, I was slowly spiraling and losing myself. A darkness existed. I felt terrified and didn't know where I was headed. Little did I know that I would be able to experience authentic happiness again one day, by doing something I used to genuinely enjoy.
Writing is an art form that I have loved since I was a little girl. Writing was always a release for me - since the days when I used to scribble stories in my unicorn notebooks about bunnies going on vacation to Bermuda or baby mice getting lost in space.
I have always been able to crawl between the lines of a piece of paper and get lost in another world. After I stopped escaping with alcohol, I realized that I didn't have to numb my senses anymore. I could feel and experience my life in a whole new way. I could release myself. I could open up and find joy again by creating. I started writing.
While finding sobriety has allowed me a new found freedom, writing this book has provided me with a new type of joy and purpose I never believed I would experience again as an adult. I am excited to share my journey with others who are struggling with alcohol and who may be feeling lost in the darkness, just as I once was. Even if you don't have a problem with alcohol, I think you will find a piece of my story that speaks to you in some way.
I am so proud of myself and excited for my book to be released into the world. It officially comes out November 1st, 2022.
Please - preorder my book now - on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Apple Books. I can't wait to share my joy with you!
"Certain authors have a gift for storytelling, bringing you into the moment, into their world and feelings. These writers write the books we just can't put down. Kimberly Kearns is one of those authors, and On the Edge of Shattered is one of those books. I could barely take a breath. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did."
