Perking the Pansies Book Trailer

It’s done and dusted. My World Book Tour across four continents has finally come to an end. The stage lights have dimmed and the sequins have been packed away for another day. I’m knackered even though I’ve not shifted from the sofa. Was it a sell out? No idea. Have I sold copies of the book? Certainly. To celebrate the end of the tour, I’m releasing my very first book trailer. BAFTAs here we come. Grab yourself some popcorn and a fizzy drink, sit back and watch:

Now to my acceptance speech…

Please extend a massive hand to the talented and generous supporting cast, stars in their own right, who took a back seat and let me take centre stage to strut my stuff.

Fittingly, the tour kicked off in my foster land with Soldier, Solder at a place in the country with rustic old sapper Archers of Okçular.

Next stop was a flying visit to the motherland for our London gig at cosmopolitan Aussie Gidday from the UK with Gidday from Turkay.

The third show, AussieBum was presented Down Under at A Life Less Ordinary with the far from ordinary Russell.

A long virtual night flight took me across the Pacific to the Eureka State – California – for Perking Across the Pond on Lick the Fridge courtesy of gifted wordsmith and family man, Jared.

My second Californian date was a camp inquisition on the pink sofa with the absolutely fabulous Impossibly Glamorous.

No time to dawdle. It was back on the virtual trail to Old Constantinople for a gig on the sharp and witty Istanbul Stranger telling my Yankee Tales, continuing the American theme.

Daft planning took my back Stateside to Provincetown in New England to be entertained by M’lady and the puppets review Perking the Pansies at cross-cultural Slowly-by-Slowly, no strings attached.

I flew the virtual transatlantic red eye for the Continental European leg of my tour. First stop, a chat of the This Morning sofa with my inspirational publisher, Jo Parfitt in the Low Countries.

Next up a trek across the Pyrenees to a campsite somewhere in southern Spain for my Trailer Trash show with the impossibly healthy Helen from Helen’s European Journey.

This was followed by another Dutch gig at Adventures in Expatland with the blogger with the big heart. She entertained us with Pansies Oh So Successfully Perked.

Safe on home soil saw me facing the questions again from the lovely Natalie at the top notch Turkish Travel Blog.

Last and certainly not least, my final interrogation was by Roving Jay on the Bodrum Peninsula Travel Guide. Jay pins me down with questions about Bodrum.

Thank you to one and all, for letting me loose on your blogs, for the Facebook posts and likes, stumbles, tweets, retweets and mentions. Your support is heart-warming. Thank you also to those who followed me around my virtual world. Now the fun really starts…

By the way, would you like to buy my book?

  1. Followed the trail and love the video. Some fantastic shots of my beloved Istanbul. The music is beautiful. Can’t wait to get the book.

    Could be just the birthday present I am looking for, for my darling brother – wishing you much success Jack


  2. Congratulations with your sales; I don’t know who is more talented ? Your writing or Liam’s music : from the video .xxxx


  3. Well that was a mad few weeks! Love the video, did you and Liam put that together yourselves? What a bundle of talent just buggered off to Bodrum! Blighty’s loss…
    Hope the book continues to sell well, I wish you both luck with the sequel.


  4. . . pleasure to chip in, old chap – just don’t ever call me a Sapper again, they’re bloody engineers, for gawds sake, it’s degrading! Hope you make enough for Liam to keep you in the manor you deserve!


  5. Jack With so much effort put into creating all of your Virtual Book Tour content – hopefully you can get some more mileage out of it and leverage if for something else… not sure what! Great job on pulling it all together.

    Love the promo video Liam! Good mix of music, audio, and graphics. I’ve done a couple of these in the past, and I know what a pain they are – so great job!


  6. Great book, great book tour, great book trailer. Is there no end to your creative talents?? Congratulations to you and Liam. Helen’s correct: you need to build on the buzz and get going on your next book. I know you’ve got several more in you
