Bokassa to Feature in Attitude!

Just received a request for the cover artwork of my book from Attitude Magazine, one of the leading national glossy gay lifestyle magazines here in the UK. Apparently they are planning a feature on my book in their next (October) edition! Whether this will be a very short piece with a cover illustration or something more substantial, I do not know. Hopefully any editorial will not be like that in Bent or Midland Zone who basically just rehashed the blurb. I think it was the Sainted Oscar who said ‘No publicity is bad publicity’? Any coverage in a national magazine with such a high profile is welcome. Interestingly, the email came from one of the interns working with them. This seems to be a growing trend. The Gay Times review was penned by an intern and, in their case, hidden away on their blog (although arguably a blog gets more views than a print publication these days). The online magazines, like Polari had more space to devote to my book and gave a full editorial review.
