View Full Version : Is your Fanny self-aware?
January 11, 2006 @, 4:08 PM
Ok, hopefully that got your attention. I am experimenting with a slogan to plaster on the normal stuff such as t-shirts, mugs, etc... to promote my book, Lucian's Place. I have opened a cafe press account at www.cafepress.com/luciansplace to test the waters. Thoughts? Comments Too Gaudy? How far to go to sell a book? By the way, Fanny is a self-aware computer in my book. For more details check out my web site at www.bellesmith.com .

So, does that mean your own t-shirt will read "My Fanny is self-aware?" [:)]
I like it. It certainly is an attention grabber. Sounds like the perfect opportunity for someone to ask you "what does the shirt mean?"

I think it works. I clicked over, didn't I?

I don't know about self-aware, but my fanny is definitely a bit self-conscious these days. Especially in public.

I like it, but if you're planning on promoting overseas as well as in the US, then you should be aware that in the UK & Ireland, "fanny" refers to a woman's genitals rather than to the non-gender-specific butt as in the US... That'll sort of take the slogan in a different direction. On a related note, that's why folks from the UK/Ireland always seem to get an embarassed expression on their face when they hear us Yanks refer to "fanny packs" . . .

Thanks for the heads up Chris. I was unaware of how our friends across the pond defined Fanny. Could have been embrassing![:I]

I just wanted to pop in and say that it's a nifty idea for promotion and I hope it does it's job for you ;)

For what it's worth, I think that's a brilliant bit of marketing. It's very attention getting and ties in directly to your story.

I just wanted to say Thanks for your comments. I think I am going to push ahead with "Is your Fanny self-aware?" and see where it goes. Hopefully, I do not offend anyone! Of course "they" say bad publicity is better than no publicity. [:)]
