I read an article where the winner of the annual prize for the oddest title of the year, awarded by public vote, was ‘How to Poo on a Date.’ The others went down the drain! But one of the shortlisted was ‘The Origin of Faeces.’ (Honest I am not joking).
Last year’s winner was a Thai cookery book, entitled ‘Cooking with Poo.’ Oh dear! I do hope this title was referring to the author’s name – like Wong Poo – or something.
I wonder what Winnie the Pooh would think of all of this?
The author of one of the greatest book ever written (I’ve seen the film when it appears on Telly loads of time, and I never tire of it) ‘Gone With the Wind’ – I do wonder whether the author chose the title because she thought America during the civil war was going down the pan!
The article goes on to say that any writers looking for a brief spell of noteriety and/or publicity should never under-estimate the power of poo.
Perhaps in my ‘Fallyn’ fantasy trilogy I should have included a dragon called DraPoo. There is a humourous, loveable dragon called DraBlo. who is famous for belching powerful gusts of fire or wind from his mouth. Perhaps I should have made it come from his posterior, instead of his mouth.
Don’t forget the first two books of my Fallyn trilogy, ‘Fallyn and the Dragons, and ‘Fallyn in the Forbidden Land’ are on special offer up to 22nd May. Only 92p for the e books, and $5.49/59 for the soft books.
The first book got in to the top 100 on Amazon in two categories.
Does anyone know why Amazon offers my first book for $12 (1 offer). If any one knows I would like to hear the explanation.
