All righty, I suppose you're all wanting to know the answer to the above question. No? What's that? You say you're tired of hearing about Justin Bieber? Welp, you're already here, so you might as well quit being a grouchy-boob-bag and read the post. It's not like anything more important is happening in the world.
Okay, here's how it all went down....My kid said, "Mom, what if we make a video of me talking about your book and post it on Youtube?"
And I'm all, "Well, that would be great. Except you haven't read my book."
Letty with a big grin on her face, says, "So? Maybe Justin Bieber will see the video, and he'll want to marry me."
After a fit of snorting laughter, I explained to her that she's too young to marry The Biebs, but by the time she's of age, surely he'll be evolved enough to meet my approval. (not that any guy ever will, but she can dream)
She agreed, deciding she could wait for him, but argued that it couldn't hurt to go ahead and get his attention. That way he'd pass on all the other girls vying for his affections. Actually, the kid dropped to her knees, pleading for me to allow her to make the video, and she promised her great marketing skills (not in those words) would surely put Sebastian Falls on all the bestsellers lists.
Knowing she wasn't about to let this grand scheme die, we broke out her iPod and went to work on this cinematic masterpiece.
After about 20 takes, she was satisfied, and I was the happiest mom on the planet because even though I don't have piles of $$$ to promote my book, I have the most gorgeous, smartest, and sweetest human being in the universe, talking up my work. And that's better than any amount of publicity I could ever receive.
Until next time, happy writing or whatever makes you smile. :)
