Hi everyone. I’m still on Cloud 9 for having an amazing soul-searching breakthrough week. I was honored as a guest on a new talk show to be aired in June on ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox affiliates for a highly-respected host (will reveal soon), who has coached leaders around the world, leaders of non-profits and the top corporations. And now he has a new show that gets into the purpose of why we do what we do.
For me, in a heartfelt genuine conversation I had with the host, all captured on television, my purpose and passion for writing and working non-stop to bring about books and stories (through books, television, and film even) is my desire to help girls and women with issues I’ve personally gone through, with issues I’ve experienced.
I’m so grateful that hundreds of thousands of girls and women have discovered my books, and that I’m in the position where producers are excited about bringing my books, me, and my passion to the screen.
In May, I begin taping the first season for my new television talk show EDGEWISE with KAILIN GOW where I will be bringing viewers heartfelt topics, go into the lives of some of my readers, go into the lives of some of the girls/women that I mentor, and more, along with random fun stuff. You will see a side of me you haven’t seen. You will get to know me as someone more than just someone who write young adult fiction. You will see that I am comfortable in my own skin (for the most part) and happy to be who I am. If I am not, I’ll let you know it.
I have never been so excited about this time in my life (other than the biggest moments in anyone’s life – getting married, having my first child…)
Here is what producers have been saying to me…
“You have so many built-in Oprah moments.”
“Kailin, you are real, you are genuine. You are a woman who has experienced it all!”
I never take anything or anyone for granted. Everything is for a purpose, and I am grateful for it. So without much adieu, I am always practicing Thanksgiving (minus the Turkey and heavy sleep-inducing stuffing) with my husband, my family, my friends, and readers (why do I give away a lot of giveaways and time?)
So I’m wishing everyone happiness, good health, and love always
