I have been delighted with all the enthusiastic feedback you lot have been giving me about my latest book. Do you want to know what my mother said about it?
“That’s a very unflattering photo of you on the back cover.”
“What do you mean, unflattering?” I asked, narrowing my eyes.
“It makes you look fat.”
“No, that photo doesn’t make me look fat. My fat makes me look fat,” I answered.
The original idea was for that photo to go on the front cover. Good job that idea was ditched!
The photo shoot was done by Hubby and I hold him responsible for any unflatteringness. Most models have an arty photographer, ideally gay, encouraging and inspiring them by saying “Give me sexy, give me more pout, that’s right darling, give me tigress.”
What I had was my husband saying “Stop wasting that tomato passata, I want to eat it for my lunch afterwards.”
It does show in the results.
Nevertheless, after all my hard work (models do work hard, you know) I have decided the photos are ideal for a CAPTION COMPETITION.
The prize will be a paperback edition of any one of my five books – see below for details. I may add a second, runner-up prize if more than one person actually enters. You may enter the contest as many times as you like.
All you have to do is put your entry in the comments box below. With your entry, please say which book you would like and make sure you do not leave an entry anonymously!!! If you win, I will be able to find out your email address confidentially, deliver the life-changing good news and ask for your postal address.
The contest will run for 3 weeks, so the deadline for entries is 28th August 2015.
Without further ado, here’s the photo.
