Some quick test marketing

I need feedback. Cover design is close to being done for my next venture. It’s a comedy. Fired English teacher scams the political system by running for the State Legislature as a Democrat in a rock red solid area. He gets his bartender to oppose him in the Democratic primary. He will run on a campaign to nationalize the oil industry. He figures Big Oil will find out about it and donate money to his opponent and they will split it. Boy, does it work. He gets the money, the girl bartender and a…See More

RABBLETOWN: Life in These United Christian States of Holy America

Comment by Randy Attwood 2 seconds agoDelete CommentNot sure if this allowed, but I'm promoting my dystopian work. The title pretty much sums it up: "Rabbletown: LIfe in These United Christian States of Holy America" set in 2084 in Topeka, Kansas.

Profile Information

Favorite Book
All Quiet on the Western Front
About Me:
I grew up on the grounds of Larned State Mental Hospital, where my father was its dentist. That was interesting. I went to The University of Kansas during the tumultuous 1960s. That was interesting, too. For the first half of my adult career I worked in newspaper journalism. You couldn't call that boring. I won my share of honors, twice winning the award for investigative reporting from the William Allen White School of Journalism at KU. For the second half of my career I was Director of University Relations at The University of Kansas Medical Center. There were some boring times, but the exciting episodes made up for it. I retired at the end of 2010 from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, where I was its media relations officer. You see, my degree from KU was not in journalism, but in art history. Unfortunately, my father died when I was 21 so I couldn't make him eat his words about that art history degree not being worth anything. I've had stints living in Italy and in Japan.

During all this time I've been putting words on paper, creating fiction. My works don't fit into neat genres, unless that rather new genre "quirky" applies. And each work is quirky in its own way. What that means for me is that in each work is evidence of a deep search within myself. Sometimes it's scary what you find in there.

I'm semi-retired now in Kansas City, keeping busy with a lot of things, among them promoting my fiction and creating new works. That search within yourself never ends.

Welcome to Book Blogs!  I'm rather new myself - still figuring things out, but so far have been quite pleased with how much support/feedback/help are available...  If there's anything I can help with just let me know - I can't promise answers (well, I can technically promise answers, just not that they are correct/useful - teehee), but I've managed to pick up a trick or two that I'm happy to share!

And if you have a second, please stop by my blog - www.Jill-Elizabeth.com - I'm always happy to get comments or new followers!

Best of luck to you -

Hi Randy,

I figured as much.  Many of us are here for the same reason.  But you need to make friends, one blogger at a time, or your plugs are going to go over people's heads.  No one responds to the insuarance salesman knocking on their door... but if he's their friend they might listen.  You reminded me of myself which is why I wrote to you.  IIt's just like in the sandbox when we were kids.  Walk up to a few people and try to make friends.
