I need some help. In two areas. Firstly, as the Beloved of the Day is not treating me right (same old, same old) I've taken my young brother's advice and gone online. My younger brother lives in a hip city and owns a yacht and rakes in chicks by the dozens. He just can't decide. But here in the countryside where tractor collections and apricot exterior house paint are signs of prowess or success or both, the gents who crop up on my screen are rather frightening. How can a 40-50 year old man describe himself in terms of a lovesick sixteen year old? Or show a photograph wearing Blues Brothers sunglasses and bare summer holiday shoulders while clutching a mobile phone? Hellup!
I was stunned by the amount of men who are married and make no bones of the fact, their serial-killer faces there for all to see. I know I'm not game enough to show my face, but shopping around made me wish I lived in a huge city where the profiles might vary a little. If I read another Sono solare e passionale - I am of sunny disposition and passionate..., well I did and I shutdown. Back to book promotion for me. Heels and prosecco, my affair with Scarlatti, they will have to do.
But the book is promo is where I really need some help. Bookmarks or postcards? Publisher and I cannot decide, or writer cannot decide is more like, and friends and family are vague and vaguer. What do you think? I realise a bookmark is more practical and sets out some clue information. But the postcard would be so snappy.
What do you think? Please assist this solare and passionale writer.
