A Promotional Fairy Tale

Currently working on: Promoting, marketing and publicizing SEDUCED BY SHADOWS
Mood: Like a cheap whore in flipflops on a rainy Tuesday night... Why? You lookin' for a date?


Once upon a time, there were three pigs who moved to a new half built-out subdivision. Due to a lingering recession that caused a drop in property values, zoning ordinances and building codes were a bit lax. The first pig built a house made of straw and set up a home office for his freelance marketing work.


Reader Wolf, who is always hungry, came along and ate the pig and his house. She found the experience a bit dry. She wondered, idly, what sort of idiot builds a house made of straw.

The second pig built a house made of marshmallow and opened a garage/shop with his promotions company.

Reader Wolf came along and ate the pig and his house. She found the experience to be a bit too sickeningly sweet. She wondered, rather queasily, what sort of idiot builds a house made of marshmallow.

The third pig built a house made of bacon and ran his publicity department from the basement.

Reader Wolf came along and ate the pig and his house. It tasted pretty good, but she thought it was kind of sick, a pig living in a bacon house.

At least she wasn't hungry. For the moment.

The End

I've heard of artistic license; however...LOL, Jessa! I think promotion and the heat are getting to you!

This is definitely unique marketing! Looking forward to your release!

Genene, you covered such good ideas in your post, I figured somebody had to cover the rest. And by rest, I mean bad ideas.

Sick! Sick, sick, sick! Um, would you pass some of that bacon?

Sorry I missed this... Were you off your meds, sweetie? ~LOL~ Too funny! Yes, a pig living in a bacon house is sick... for the pig. For the wolf it's ok! M:o)
