Less subtlety and more directness!

This morning I read K.M. Alexander’s announcement about his new book,  “The Stars Were Right”  and I really liked how he showcased the book in an exciting way and encouraged his readers to buy a copy.  He wrote a good book and he’s not timid about asking people to buy it.  I am, however, and it’s silly and actually dishonest.  It’s like, “Here’s a little children’s book I wrote, and oh, here are some teaching activities you might like, and I’m sorry it’s so expensive, but maybe you can just download the ebook.  Well after admiring K.M. Alexander, a professional writer, I now say this:

Announcing a charming book about talking dogs that is sure to please any child, “Puppy, the Navy Seal Dachshund”!  See how Puppy strives for greatness with the aid of his best animal friends and how hard work makes dreams come true.
