Arise Little Man: I Share Your Vulnerability
These past few weeks have honestly been a dream--sometimes I still have to pinch myself to remind me that it’s actually all happening! The reception of Arise Little Man is more than I could have ever asked for. Prior to releasing the book, I was terrified it would just be a complete flop—there was always the little voice in the back of my head telling me it wasn’t good enough.
That said, I still struggle with silencing that voice. How will I continue Detto’s journey? How many more stories do I have within me? Following this success, I’ve realized I’m putting undue stress on myself to already be creating another book, whereas what I should be focusing on is continuing to spread Detto’s message across the country.
My greatest wish is to make a difference in how the next generation of little boys grow up— not be afraid to be vulnerable and show emotion. And that begins by sharing and encouraging all parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, etc. to not only purchase Arise Little Man, but also to practice reminding the little men in their lives to not fall prey to society’s cookie-cutter idea of masculinity. There is no right way to “be a man,” you simply are who you are.
Furthermore, I am excited to announce that I am working very hard to have an electronic version of Arise Little Man released by the end of the summer for download on Kindle, Nook, iPad and more. I am also hoping we will be able to release an audio version of Arise Little Man by the end of 2018. I want Detto to be available to the masses in as many forms as possible!
