Hello and thank you for visiting.
Please note that we will not consider any application without a proper Letter of Introduction, something that says HELLO, to start, thanks us for the opportunity, and includes how you are qualified for this internship, and what unique skills you bring to this unique project? This approach shows us you’re not simply shotgunning your resume and a generic Intro to us and perhaps many other firms. The shotgun method is an immediate turn-off for professionals.
For example, please directly address the first two questions: Are you a dynamic and outgoing person with keen insight and knowledge about marketing and promoting a product, especially to prominent people, entertainers or celebrities? Have you successfully pitched to social-media influencers whose followers trust their word and follow their direction?
Also, please address the subject matter: suicide. People are afraid of the COVID-19 regional outbreaks becoming a pandemic, but the global effects fall way short of the global pandemic of suicide.
We have a unique novel that needs to find its special audience, so please address our needs and tell us how you can assist in fulfilling our goals. This is a very difficult subject and requires someone who understands it and can discuss it with others, especially influencers who can assist in promoting the novel.

It’s cool if you don’t know book marketing/promoting, but you must have relevant experience in reaching out to social-media influencers and convincing them to listen to your pitch.
We published two excellent novels in 2019, and one of them is screaming to be in the hands of millions of very special people, more than a hundred of whom kill themselves each day. This unique novel, Suicide Tango: My Year Killin' It With A Shrink, is very well written and unusually structured. It simply has not found its feet out there in the universe. That’s where you come in. This is a unique and one-time opportunity for you to burst onto the scene and assist us in bridging this novel with those in need.
Some fast facts you need to know: Librarians hate it. Psychiatrists hate it. Psychologists hate it. All for different reasons. We hypothesize these “professionals” disagree with the author’s approach to healing a mental-health disorder, and flatly dismiss it in favor of that espoused by the American Medical Association or American Psychiatric Association. Sadly, the AMA’s and APA’s approaches clearly do not work, but their followers continue to adhere to their ill-suited standards and mandates.
We discovered our target audience from the reviews they’ve written: People who have suffered from anxiety, depression, PTSD and suicidal behavior. Oh, and in some cases, the parents and siblings of those special people. These dear souls love Suicide Tango: My Year Killin' It With A Shrink.
Here’s what professional editorial reviewers have said about Suicide Tango:
"A challenging black comedy that aims to entertain and save lives." —Kirkus Reviews
"Illuminating, gallows humor look at teen suicide . . . Full of wry observations, and justifiable outrage, Suicide Tango is a must-read for everyone." —Seattle Book Review
"An entertaining, edgy portrait of therapy." —BlueInk Review
"A well-written book that slaps the reader upside the head with the snark of a young woman." —Chanticleer Reviews (Best Book, 5-Star Review)
"A provocative novel . . . the climax is emotionally draining, and getting there is a roller coaster." —Foreword Reviews
Readers have said this about Suicide Tango:
“Unlike anything I have ever read before. All I can say is WOW!” —Deborah Carpenter (5 Stars, NetGalley.com Reviews)
“This book had me speared through the heart . . . Tight and raw writing, highly recommended.” —Corinne Cambridge (5 Stars, NetGalley.com Reviews)
“I follow this writer on Twitter, and Tripsy South said it best: if you've never suffered from depression or anxiety you just won't get it. But is there a reader on the planet who hasn't suffered from depression or anxiety? I don't think there is. So this book is for everyone. It is simultaneously, dark, compassionate, and funny—not what you'd expect from a book that dances directly with the topic of suicide. It's witty and insightful and a read like none other.” —Karen Stefano, author of What A Body Remembers (5 Stars, Amazon.com)
We will ask you to read and study the novel, so you can assist us in developing a world-class pitch to social-media influencers and other entertainers, celebrities and sports figures. HINT: The ideal candidate will have already taken the initiative: purchased the novel on Amazon, read it, and absorbed the messages.
To start, you will be paid $15/hour for 20 hours/month of dedicated, first-rate work that gets strong, positive results. We will evaluate your progress several times each week.
When you succeed, you will have triumphed in a sensitive area where other marketing/PR firms failed miserably.
There are more than 50 million people in the US alone who suffer from anxiety and/or depression and PTSD alone. With your expert assistance, our wish is to reach those souls and change lives.
We look forward to hearing from you soonest. And thanks again for visiting.
