Standing on stage with your pants down

“Adventures don’t begin until you get into the forest. That first step is an act of faith.”—Mickey Hart

Launching a new book is like standing on stage with your pants down. You feel kinda vulnerable, wondering if anyone’s gonna like it.

Even after 17 books, I totally relate to Maya Angelou who once said, “Each time I write a book, every time I face that yellow pad, I think, “Uh, oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve run a game on everybody and they’re going to find me out.”

So thank you everybody for “finding me out” and supporting me anyway. All your oh-so awesome emails, your congratulations, your “likes” have really rocked my world.

I cannot tell you how much it means.

And if you’re still not sick of me, stop by Facebook on Monday from 3 to 4 pm EST for a chat on the Hay House website.

Now, got out and have the best weekend of your life.

To get it started, here’s one of my favorite videos, for those who haven’t seen it in a while. I interviewed Matt years ago for one of my National Geographic books.

I dare anyone to watch it without breaking into a smile.

Pam Grout is the author of 17 books including E-Squared: 9 Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality and the just -released sequel, E-Cubed, 9 More Experiments that Prove Mirth, Magic and Merriment is your Full-time Gig.

Bumped by Walter Cronkite

My interview with Wisconsin Public Radio, originally scheduled for 3  to 4  p.m. today, got bumped. Jean Feraca, host of “Here on Earth,” called frantically about 11 a.m. “We need to do a show on Walter Cronkite,” she said. “Can we postpone?”

For Walter, I said “yes.”

Hi! Welcome to the internet home of Pam Grout. I am the author of 16 books, two screenplays, a live soap opera, a TV series and enough magazine articles that I haven’t starved in 20 years without a 9-5 job. On this site, you’ll find all sorts of information about my books and about my career as a freelance writer.

If you’re an editor, you can easily click on Portfolio to view writing samples from my illustrious magazine and newspaper career.

If you’re a reader of my books, you can find out more about me, read excerpts from some of the books you haven’t been lucky enough to read yet and take quizzes to see if you’re qualified as a breather, an artist or a P.L.B. (that’s person who lives big for those of you who haven’t yet read Living Big! ) And if you’re really jazzed, simply click here or on that orange RSS feed icon to the right and subscribe to my free weekly nuggets of inspiration.

Enjoy!
Pamela Sue Grout
