A 55-page collection of nine essays (plus poems, quotes, photos, artwork, and links to external materials) all about my year-long Love Project.

In January of 2011, I publicly declared the year ahead my "Year of Fearless Love." Honestly, I wasn't even sure what I meant by that, but my heart was aching and I needed to believe in something as simple and good as the power of love. As it turns out, it was a fateful decision. The year was strange, wonderful, exhausting, electric, painful and healing, and I emerged from it someone new. You simply cannot devote a year of your life to loving fearlessly without staring down a few demons and learning some (often uncomfortable) truths about yourself along the way.

Click the images above to read the table of contents, introduction, and "Ten Thousand Times," one of the shortest essays in the collection.

You can also read the essay, "Earnest, hippie and doe-eyed," in its entirety on the literary website, Clamp.

This e-book is my attempt to share the year with you - the big, thorny, beautiful thing that was my Year of Fearless Love.
