Because, relying on this theory, I have just spent the last several hours sending out one ballsy letter after another regarding my soon-to-be-released (ok, not-so-soon-to-be-released) young adult novel, The Pull of Gravity. These letters have included emails to literary/reading contests asking how I go about getting my (yet-to-be-released) book to be one of the selected titles, emails to a few major companies whose products just happen to make an appearance in my story if they might be interested in doing a little cross promotion (hahahahhahah! er) and an email to a pretty famous Middle Grade author my boys love asking if he'll read an advance copy of my manuscript and consider blurbing it for me if he loves it.
Talk about balls. Er.
But if you don't ask, you'll never know.
(and I do believe in my book).
