Book Video of the Week

If you've ever wondered what one of my publicity consulting (aka "publishing therapy") sessions sounds like on the other end, check out this painfully funny video by Dennis Cass, author of HEAD CASE: How I Almost Lost My Mind Trying to Understand My Brain. (Thanks to Lisa Kenney for sending the link!)

OH My, I saw this link on Lisa's but just took the time to finally view it. Classic! K.

Just saw this over on GalleyCat. Hilarious. Now I want his book (see how that works?).

I've read his book and it's good stuff. His writing is fantastic, but I don't think I've ever picked up a book that's more difficult to describe. It's a sometimes darkly (but mostly not) humorous memoir with a big dose of layman's neuroscience and themes about fathers and sons throughout. Ten minutes into reading, I couldn't imagine what the query letter (proposal?) might have looked like.

video. BookVideoTV, BookTelevision and of course CSPAN, but I like how BN.com and Reader's Entertainment TV have specific genre channels and original shows. There's just more to see and I can be specific in what genre I'm interested in. Anyone else watch online tv?
