Diary of a Beautiful Disaster Book Launch Recap

Monday, March 27th was a dream come true. It’s when I officially celebrated the launch of Diary of a Beautiful Disaster with the world. (OK, maybe the world is a bit exaggerated, but at least with my friends and family.) I’ve never been a huge enthusiast of public speaking. I don’t mind it. I don’t hate it either.
