Hi Joe.
Thanks for your response. That was pretty much my take on it also. For me it was an "I can't think of a better hook and I've got nothing to loose so I may as well try it."
Planning to spend some time on it today to see if I can come up with something better and then send it.
If it hits the press I'll let you know.

After a lot of pressure, mostly from myself, I have finally tipped my Headline Prediction, HEAD: The headline prediction for the performer without the stones to make a real headline prediction. Now, in disposable e-book form.

Well, nobody seems to think this, but this is not a one-stop fix.

First, yeah, get on, great.

What is the reason you SHOULD be on? That really is the question many are trying to answer, but usually have trouble with.

After you are on, what then? That is usually the more applicable question.

One of the extra incentives for your piece to get used is a visual. By this I don't mean a publicity headshot, but a well taken shot of something visually interesting from your performance. I've worked many a festival and, invariably, the picture that appears in the newspapers is of the face painter with a child, a fire-breathing shot, or a stilt-walker. Why, because they're more visually interesting than most shots of magicians. Lots of shoppers/local newspapers may run a piece if it's sufficiently well written, it doesn't need editing, and comes with a picture worth using. Unless you have something quite large in your repertoire (head chop, Zig Zag, larger fire than is usual and safe), then your next hook is for the picture (and story) to be about someone else but including you (local mayor being amazed, etc.). Unfortunately, there isn't always such a person present at the event, but then, not every event has much potential for human interest. Part of the skill of PR is recognising what will be of interest and what won't and to whom.
