Got the garage cleaned out enough to accept a very large palette of books. Want to knock it back one more layer tomorrow, but if the truck shows up, I'm ready. Here's a sleeper cartoon I found in my New Times files:
This was an illustration paired with a news report that local police needed a warrant to search a young woman they suspected of hiding drugs in her bra.
Inside the feature is a little racier than I opted for in the book (maturity?).
The Triple B Postcard Blitz
I also lined up three different 66 Kid postcards from my series and targeted several big TV media outlets with a one, two, three blitz. They get one postcard, then another one comes a day later and a third a day after that. The pitch starts soft, goes gonzo and finishes with asking for the order. It's a long shot, but it's so hard to break that today.
