Through The Roof + Porn + Photoshoot

Hits to this blog are getting worse and worse every day. What is wrong with you lot? Has the tinterwebs run out of porn?

On Saturday there is going to be a photoshoot to do with the cover for the book (Amazon, buy now, etc. etc.). There’s going to be, I think, a girl there pretending to be Annie. I had an email from James asking me about possible nail polish and dress and nightie. I haven’t thought about what Annie looks like for a long time, but she was still there.

Be careful when you invent a person. I don’t think they ever quite leave you. I’m certain her voice is lingering on the ends of my fingers and I could type her into life again very easily.

This is one of several versions we’ve had of this book cover. I can see why she’s hard work. The trick of the book – the thing that I found most entertaining to write and the bit I am hoping people find most entertaining to read – is the grey part between what Annie thinks of herself, and what we think of her. I’ve tried to get both views into the story – like ghosts superimposed one on top of the other. I’m not sure how you’d show that in a picture. Which is why I leave it to the experts.

Blog question for today: this is going to be a quiz. Some participation. Some novel writing 2.0. Think of a cocktail and make up a name for a snuff film. Stand by for tomorrow.
