“The Toilet Papers” Travels to bathrooms across Europe to promote new release for author Jaimie Engle
“Overnight success happens after decades of sleepless nights.”--Jaimie Engle
Have you ever heard of a book taking a tour without the author? That’s what happened this summer as Jaimie Engle’s new release The Toilet Papers took an international tour of bathrooms across Europe.
“When my website designer from The Paramount Group asked if she could bring my book on her family vacation to Europe, I couldn’t say no!” shares Engle, owner of JME Books and The Write Engle, LLC. “How funny to have a book on tour without the author, let alone a bathroom book visiting international bathrooms and toilets. It’s too funny to be true.”
The Toilet Papers is a short story collection of humor, horror, historical, and fantasy tales for ages 16+ written by Jaimie Engle, an award-winning author from the Space Coast of Florida. Her idea was to create a book separated by word count to meet the bathroom needs of readers after she herself became frustrated when picking up her own bathroom book and not remembering where she had left off. For example, if someone only has to go a little, there’s stories under 1,000 words in section “Number 1” but if someone’s going to be awhile, the section titled “Farfrompoopin’” includes stories over 5,000 words.
The clever concept was quickly received by Linda Stay, Marketing Director of Squatty Pottytm a toilet stool promoting proper potty posture created by the Edwards family of Saint George, Utah.
“What a great idea for a fun book,” shares Stay, who gave Engle permission to use their mascot Dookie the Unicorn’s haiku in the book. “This is going to be so fun and very successful as well! We are happy to give the endorsement.”
The Toilet Papers is available in both print and digital copies through Amazon and other online retailers, including Barnes & Noble. The author provides signed copies through the publisher’s website at jmebooks.com. More about the author or to book her at your group event is available at thewriteengle.com.
