This morning officially kicked off my book promotion junket — or in my case, dinghy — by speaking at the Unitarian Universalist Church.
Biblical Prophecy and Its Warnings About Miley Cyrus.
At least, that was going to be my topic. But following the advice of my publisher, Ellen, I made a last-minute topic change:
Life Without Humor is No Laughing Matter (Get it?)
With the new book jacket finalized and things entering the printing phase for December publication, I have begun the process of increasing my visibility. In the past, this just meant eating more and going to the gym less.
But because Ellen is a professional who wants this book to be successful, and because she knows my well-thought-out publicity campaign would involve little more than appearances at Cold Stone locations throughout the U.S., she has urged me to accept offers to speak anywhere, any time, even if it means singing a happy birthday song with bewildered waitresses at Applebee’s (Which was a total bust, by the way, at least until I got a piece of cake.)
So don’t be surprised if I show up at your next Bunko Night, Elks Lodge dinner, church bazaar, AA meeting or Le Maze class. Although the Le Maze class isn’t really, uh… contractual.
