P is for Promotion (Self)

Standard

I’ve decided to combine my laziness today with the undeniable urge to push my own work. Winning combination, no? No?

OK, fair point.

Nonetheless, today I am going to dangle a little Aunty Ida in front of you, though you might want to make sure you’re wearing your protective brain gear. On account of the likelihood that she wants to get her hands in your noggin.

Probably metaphorically speaking. Probably.

Anyway, in Aunty Ida’s Full-Service Mental Institution (by Invitation Only), Margaret really doesn’t have much of a choice. If she wants to keep her job as a judge after her tiny, minuscule little meltdown live on LawTV, she’s got to let Aunt Ida help her. It doesn’t matter, though, because Margaret knows none of it was her fault. She was set up, and she’s going to prove it.

Here’s the cover:

Yes, Aunty Ida is weird. Yes, Aunty Ida is a weird book. But don’t we weirdos need a place to hang out, even if it’s only between pixelated pages? See, that’s what I thought.

And so ends our latest self-promotion bulletin. I hope that no sensibilities were injured in the making of this post.

Check out  my full-length novels,  Her Cousin Much Removed,  The Great Paradox and the Innies and Outies of Time Management and Aunty Ida’s Full-Service Mental Institution (by Invitation Only), and the sequel, Aunty Ida’s Holey Amazing Sleeping Preparation (Not Doctor Recommended) which is now available!

    • Thanks! It was done by an artist named Ralf Kraft. Initially I’d bought the central image from a stock photo site, and then I hunted him down for art for the sequel. Before I knew it, he’d done the entire cover and redid the covers of my other sci-fi books, aside from the short story collection. He’s a really talented guy.

      The book itself is a little on the surreal side, so I think it fits well.

        Sounds like a guy who takes initiative. And as long as it fits the book there’s no reason why it can’t be surreal.

  1. I really like the cover and the story sounds up my alley. I’ll have to put it on my TBR. Great job on the Challenge. We’re almost there! Have a great day. Eva, from Lisa’s Lisa’s Live Wires
