POV Monday Promo is a ten-part series leading up to the publication of Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. POV Monday Promo’s goal is to get the needed feedback and funds to edit, format and publish the printed book through Amazon Pre-Order Sales. The promo will also build a buzz around the book via “blooking” the first 3 Chapters before the e-book launches on August 17th.
THE STORY BEE-HIND THE TITLE
In Pt. 2 of this series, I’d like to share the story behind the book title, Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. The inspiration for the title came from my first love back in my college days. He called me out of the blue after not hearing from him in years. As always, he was right on time, popping up just when I was going through one of life’s initiations through fire. Hearing his voice was a healing balm. He was calling to ask me a favor and what came out of his mouth surprised me, even today when I think of it.
He said, “I need the prayers of a virgin.” At that time, I was a little shocked and embarrassed because I didn’t hold my virginity as a badge of honor, but rather something that alienated me from the rest of society in some unspoken way. I’ve come a long way since then and part of the reason it’s taken me so long to write my book has had to do with me exposing my “literal” virginity up to age 32. In truth, I’ve always seen virginity as neither good nor bad; however, it was the values, beliefs and judgments around sexuality that society projected onto me for better or worse that caused the most damage. Now that I’ve broken free from all the mental madness, I’m free to share my views without concern for what others might think around the true meaning behind virginity, which to me has little to do with sexuality and more to do with a person “owning onto themselves,” not claimed by any person or perspective that doesn’t serve their ultimate good. I decided to take Dr. Seuss’ advice when he said, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” Below is the tentative schedule for the POV Promo. Also, PLEASE take the survey below so I can get your feedback on the book title and concept so far.
