Ok so it's an e-book and I self published it but it still counts! 

It seems like my entire life has been leading to this point. I have always wanted to be an author and I used to dream about what it would be like to see my name on the cover a book, what it would be like to have a writing routine, to get all my ideas out on paper and have people read it the way I've read so many authors. 

It's a dream that I've been working toward for years, that is constantly on my vision board and now this year it's happening.

I have many fiction novels in the work but I had the itch to tell my story about graduating college, my journey with anxiety and depression and to just write a book that would help other people going through this major life change.

It's been well documented on this blog that I struggled when I graduated college. It was a really pivotal time for me with so much change, both in and outside of my control, that it was hard to cope. It triggered my anxiety and depression, and allowed me to spiral; I was never the same person and my mental health issues are something I still struggle with to this day.

I wanted to organize my thoughts and feelings around that time in my life and before I knew it, I had a 60 pages and I wanted to put it out into the world. Self-publishing has become so mainstream and I knew that for something small like this, and something so personal, I just wanted to do it on my own.

I was toying with the idea of putting it on my own website but Amazon and Kindle made it way too easy to format and upload. 

The book is now available and it's called 'How I (Barely) Survived My Quarter Life Crisis'

If you are someone who struggles with change, who is going through a tough period, or someone who is going to graduate college/is newly graduated, this book is for you. It's a quick read through my personal struggles and how to recognize a change in yourself, along with tips and advice on how to navigate adulthood.

If you have any questions, please reach out at briana@royallypink.com and I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it!
