So I emailed Ani Difranco's management knowing it was a long shot. The lyrics from her song "Overlap" are essentially the thesis statement for my new novel, Blood & Water:
After sending the email request, I began to emotionally prepare to delete the quote before publishing. Honestly, I didn't expect I'd ever hear back.I know there is strength in the differences between usAnd I know there’s comfort where we overlap.
But I did. First for more specifics on the terms of the request and then to approve the request. I am beside myself with unexpected joy!
I will write more soon about the book, which I'm planning to release in November. Stay tuned for the cover reveal!
