I am (re re re) reading Amanda Palmer’s ‘The Art of Asking’ and have gotten to the part where she calls her mom for advice on a talk she has been scheduled to give. They wind up having an amazing conversation over wine and hours. A lot of it surprising to Amanda who wondered why she didn’t know any of it…mostly because she had never taken her mother seriously.
I am bound for the secret lair on Amazon (uk) Mountain to beg the Dread High Poobah (marketing division) to release my book;What Lies Beneath. Wish me luck as I cross hill and dale and rill and fen and (damn, WHERE is my thesaurus) and ….uhhh….other places.
I will approach the Doomed Place of Amaz……
Sneak past the Fiercesome guards….
Until I stand and face the Dread High Poobah (marketing division) face to face….err…..collar bone, and make my demands. Or beg. Begging seems likely. I mean, look at the size of him!
Will I be successful? Will I leave with a happy sack full of my books to send to all of you?
Or will I be treated as…..
Only time and the internet will tell.
Chimera On A Quest
**if any Gentle Readers are so inclined, please feel free to email Amazon.co.uk and ask WHEN WHEN WHEN (that would make a great song….never mind, FOCUS) the long awaited “What Lies Beneath” by the elegant, erudite and just darn nice poetess Jaye Tomas will be available. Anyone doing this will earn my heartfelt gratitude….and possibly cookies.**
‘What Lies Beneath’ still not available on the UK Amazon site….although a third party has listed one for almost £70!!!! *reeling* Can’t imagine there will be a lot of people lining up for that….
It is available in America. In Spain. In India. In France. In Russia……but the UK just won’t give in. Hard feelings about the tea?
Have put in an inquiry (enquiry?) to Amazon….now just cross fingers and wait. You know….patiently. Because I am all about waiting patiently.
I will keep you updated! And I will be P…p….PA….ARGGGGGGGGGGGGG
