NPR ‘Tell Me More’ – package send off! (An Ode To Balls)

Okay folks. So I did something a little ballsy. I told you I was gonna send out a package to Michele Martin and the Tell Me More family…I finished it just a few minutes ago. I included a bunch of fun stuff like my book(s), stickers, excerpts, etc….but I also wrote a letter…from my heart.

It’s not your typical cover letter. It’s not ‘professional’…at least not like other letters I’ve included in my press kit packages…I decided to follow my heart on this one. I think Michele would appreciate this. Her listeners too.

A poet friend sent me an email this afternoon (her timing is impeccable!) asking me how I get my book out there so well. I kinda laughed to myself because I feel like I barely put my book ‘out there’… It’s not easy. It takes a lot of time and money and balls.

For her (that’s you, Terry Ann!), I wrote a ballsy letter to Michele Martin. In my own words, in my own voice, I’m asking her to please invite me on her show so I can talk about my book. And vaginas. I pulled the ‘vagina’ card, and I’m not afraid to say it. Why not? We women love to talk about our girls, right?

This is it. Yes, I even used a flashy envelope. $1.25 at the Dollarama. I heart them!

If you’re on the fence about sending your book out, your work out – basically, you soul out – do it.

Whip out your balls. Write from your heart. And see what happens.

That’s what I’m doing. I let you know how it goes.
