Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), I didn’t get blasted by this SoulKool agent. But for any publicists who want to tickle my fancy, it’s actually quite easy to do: (a) read my blog and figure out what I’m interested in, (b) direct your emails to me personally, (c) have a sense of humor or a spirit of playfulness, (d) understand that I receive somewhere in the area of 3-20 books a week and that I obviously can’t read them all, (e) don’t expect me to necessarily love your book (I’m not a shill) and (f) realize that there’s pretty much only one guy running this site (and that includes research, production and engineering for each Segundo podcast, which is probably around 15-20 hours per show).
(And here’s a hint: three Segundo interviews came to be because publicists and/or authors factored in each and every one of those six points.)
