Should you expect your friends, your family to be as excited as you are about your book?
Should you expect them to understand what it really means that you’ve written a book?
I mean, You. Have. Written. A. Book! That’s a tremendous feat. But, no… unless they’ve written a book themselves, don’t expect the people around you to be as excited as you are. Don’t expect them to understand. And don’t expect them to read your book.
Even if you ask nicely.
And know that it’s okay!
