I’m here to invite you personally to 4 book launch events in the USA and Canada, but first I have something to confess—the first story I ever published was in Grade 3.
It was about a hamster named Harvey with three wishes (his wishes were a diamond ring, a satin pillow, and world peace if you were wondering) that got published in a collection called “Stepping Stones”.
You don’t get book tours when you’re in Grade 3—so I’ve been waiting a fuck of a long time for you to come party with me.
I remember shitting a brick when someone told me authors make 15% off of books but I knew this day would come, anyway, because writing is my dharma—it’s why I am here.
I told my publisher it would take 3 months, and it took 2 years for me to finish my first book and compilation of poetry “This is for the women who don’t give a fuck” because this is it.
These pages are going to outlive me—they will be read by my children and my grandchildren and their children.
This book will end up in a Goodwill for like $2 bucks and 100 years from now someone is going to pick it up, look at the title, laugh and go, “What a sassy minx”.
I am so proud of this book. I am so excited for you to meet each page, and hopefully me in September and October.
I have crafted 4 events—Encinitas, LA, Toronto and Vancouver.
These evenings will be a reflection of me—I’m not going to read pages of my book from a chair in front of you like some untouchable (boring).
I’m not going to do spoken word (I tried to take lessons but ended up liking singing more then I like spoken word).
I will share slabs of my heart with you that you haven’t heard before.
I will tell you why I wrote certain poems, where I was and what they mean to me.
I will answer questions in a Q + A portion that you have about this book or about my journey.
I will be signing books (squeal) and giving my famous Robinson hugs (I give the best damn hugs you’ll ever know).
At some of these events expect a screening of my surfing and poetry film “I am a woman of distinction”.
At some of these events expect booty shaking and boozy punch drinking.
At all of these events, come to reflect, connect and celebrate with me.
