Our best selling book, Send Yourself Roses, contains lessons Kathleen Turner learned from her own life, and she shares them in hopes they will be of practical value to readers, especially other women. To name a few:
- See your moment and seize it, Honey.
- If you feel sexy, so you are.
- Don’t repeat your successes.
- The irony strikes when you’re hot.
- And, of course, Send Yourself Roses.
When you say the book title, put the emphasis on “yourself”. Makes a different meaning, doesn’t it?
Actually, our first title was Take the Lead, Lady! (See speech description below–the name was too good to lose.) Our editor wanted something a little less–oh, maybe less strong or strident-sounding. We thought Send Yourself Roses sounded pathetic, like you couldn’t get anyone else to. But when you say “Send Yourself Roses”–emphasis on “Yourself”, it sounds empowered and that’s more like Kathleen.
So I created a speech called “Send Yourself Roses”too. I talk about what I learned from writing the book with Kathleen, including how the process led me through a profound transition in my life and work.
