How did Justin Bieber and my daughter get involved in promoting Sebastian Falls?


 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. :)


  1. Oh my gosh she is so precious! You tell that sweet little girl of yours The Biebs isn't even close to being good enough for her! :)

    1. Thanks, Jaybird! That's what I've been telling her! :)

  2. That is so cute! How sweet of your little girl to take on the big task of trying to help you sell your book!

    The Biebs just isn't going to be good enough, I'm afraid. Good luck to her though. Maybe he'll say hi!

    1. Thank you, Rena! I'm with you and Jaybird, no guy will ever be good enough, not even Justin, lol! :)

  3. This is just the cutest thing I've ever seen. I'm pretty sure she's way too good for Bieber!

    Justin Timberlake, however...oh wait I want him. Nevermind :D

    1. Hahahahha! Yep, Justin could only be so lucky, Biebs that is! Oh, and she may fight you for Timberlake. She's decided he's pretty cute, too, since seeing videos from his Nsync days! :D

  4. Hey Celeste!

    Yes, it's me, your starstruck fan and your poster dude. When I say, "poster dude", as in creating and posting up your posters in regards to your expanding fan club in gosh darn lovable England!

    Your daughter is one heck of a good promoter. Just like you, your daughter is adorable.

    In Canada, they try to keep the fact that Justin Bieber is Canadian a secret, eh! Oops!

    And cause I'm so nice, I shall take the liberty of sharing your posting. Yep, even on 'Farcebook'! :)

    As ever, your starstruck fan,


  5. Gary!!!! You really did come here! I thought you were joking, but now I feel like a superstar! (ever watch that movie?) No, I'm not sniffing my armpits, lol. (hope you've watched the movie, otherwise I just sound like a gross moron :D) So, how's the poster hanging going? I've got to get to gosh darn lovable England to see the progress, lol. Thanks for sharing my pint-sized promoters video! I told you, you're my new hero! :)

  6. Awwww... What a cutie-tootie!
    One word - PRICELESS!
