I know, I know—the last thing you want to be reminded of is rising gas prices but I did think this was funny. It came over on an email from a friend so I have no idea who to credit.
Typical Colorado weather—90 yesterday and barely 70 today….from a tank top to a hoodie.
Anyone else read Sebastian Faulk’s Devil May Care? I liked it, but I thought the ending was a little lame. That’s all I’ll say for now, unless someone wants to discuss it. Sales, though, are brisk. Penguin claims it set the record
for the fastest selling hardback fiction title—44,000 copies in four days.
J K Rowling also set a record—her 800-word prequel to HP sold at a charity auction
for $49,000. That’s $60.00 per word for a handwritten piece of paper a little bit bigger than a postcard.
I’d like to have attended: Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Ark held a three day symposium devoted to Buffy! Among the papers being presented: “Buffy and Feminism,” “Buffy and Identity,” “Hero’s Journey, Heroine’s Return: Buffy, Eurydice and the Orpheus Myth.” Heavy.
And, last but not least, for all you authors out there, a novel marketing idea
. Best-selling UK author Peter James will have his name emblazoned on the side of a Hyundai patrol car. Why didn't I think of that? What about you? Any unusual marketing ideas to share?
That’s all, folks--
