Hi there! I’m happy to say that I’ve managed to make my deadline for two of the Mystery Scene Magazine reviews I had to write. So … hurray for moi!
Now, I just have to finish reading the third book, which (ironically) is a mystery which involves a slaughterhouse near Venice, Italy. A place I’ve actually visited. And I’m promoting a new mystery involving the poultry industry. Isn’t that awesome?
But … first, about marketing, I just wanted to say that marketing is about showing up and keeping it real, in my opinion.
That’s the simplest explanation I can give for what I do.
Or I could direct you to this awesome article. I’m going to quote the first paragraph:
Cookies can be marketing, too, according to Eric Danziger, president and CEO of Wyndham Hotel Group, when he accepted the Albert E. Koehl Lifetime Achievement Award in advertising and marketing at the 55th annual Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International’s Adrian Awards.
Maybe that’s what I should have said at this event.
It’s all about the cookies.
Here’s another way of putting it.
And thank you, Diane Owens for doing the typing!
And here’s my whole-hearted recommendation of the book
despite gimpiness and all that.
And — whoa! — isn’t that cover a beauty?
Now … as to the birthday gifts. I happen to know that avid reader and Doctor Who fan Paul
Downie has a birthday coming up tomorrow. I noticed this on his Facebook page.
And … Paul was nice enough to give me the gift of an awesome tune on my birthday last year, which YouTube has since taken down. Well, even if YouTube
is an asshole has taken my present down, I’m not holding that against Paul.
So … here are a couple of birthday tunes for you, Paul.
First, an old favorite from Brian Eno.
Second, a really uplifting number from Republica. I think this should be the Riptide Launch Party theme song.
Whatever happened to these guys, anyhow?
That’s it for now. I sure hope you enjoyed this post. Here’s another book review I wrote
ages weeks ago for LIVING PROOF by Kira Peikoff.
I sure hope all this makes up for the fact that I just told the entire Internet I’m
retarded impaired crazy.
