Fun with Fictitious Endorsements

Know one thing I’m loving about the approaching release date for my novella? I’m receiving exciting
feedback from endorsers. And it’s beyond thrilling—to read their responses, to let it sink in how my words moved them. Ah, it feels awesome!

Today I’ve decided to have some fun. I’ve created a list of fictitious endorsements, because, hey, why not?

Without further ado…

THE DISAPPEARING KEY bent me all the right ways. – Gumby

The characters in this book made me want to rock down to Electric Avenue. – Eddy Grant

After reading THE DISAPPEARING KEY, I’ll never be hungry again. – Scarlett O’Hara

It made my day. – Clint Eastwood

I’d say this novella was the cat’s meow. It certainly wasn’t Odie-ous.” – Garfield

I liked it. I really liked it. – Sally Field

The prose made me want to love it and list it. – Hilary, Love it or List It, HGTV

You should read THE DISAPPEARING KEY. And when you do, make sure to say hello to my little friend. – Scarface

THE DISAPPEARING KEY made me feel like I’m king of the world. – Leonardo DiCaprio

This novella completed me. – Tom Cruise

If you plan a boating trip with all the people who are going to love this book, you’re going to need a bigger boat. – Roy Scheider

THE DISAPPEARING KEYS was peas. We go together. – Carrots

This novella was one to grow on. – 80s PSA commercial creator 

If you could have someone give one of your projects a fabricated endorsement, who would you choose and what would they say?

*Get ready for “Key Giveaways” in October to celebrate the release of THE DISAPPEARING KEY in ONE WEEK!

***Note: No one really said any of the above during the making of this blog post. Hence the word fictitious. No one was hurt either.
