So I wrote this book called Heroine Complex and I finally have a good answer for the inevitable question every writer dreads: "What's it about?"
I've gone through the Way Too Long Explanation That Goes Off On Many Tangents phase. The Read It And Find Out (Followed by Big Cheesy Smile) phase. The What Is Anything About Really, You Know What I'm Saying? Now Let's Change the Subject To Something That Is Not Me phase.
