I phoned Ronald, owner of the Club 347, and I explained that his club is featured in In The Mirror. He asked why, and I told him because his club is very popular in Baltimore City. Everyone who is serious about music goes there. And since one of the characters plays the trumpet, I thought it would be special to have him play at 347.
I asked Ronald if I could place some flyers 347 to promote In The Mirror, and he said I could bring 2 posters! I was so shocked and happy. I told him that I would stop by and bring the poster, as well as a signed copy of In The Mirror for him. The only problem was, I didn’t have a poster. I had a little brochure that I’ve been passing out. They aren’t even in color, because my budget is so slim that I can only afford color for my press packets. So are the struggles of an author. But that doesn’t mean I will not get the poster. I designed one using Powerpoint, a picture of the cover, and a photo our daughter, Nina, took of me while we were at Cylburn Auboretum videotaping her dolls for another video for her Doll City channel. (By the way, she is getting so good at making those movies.)
Anyway, here’s what I came up with. I put it on my Facebook page and everyone loved it. I’m proud of it myself. I plan to have it posted inside club 347 by the end of the week.
