Video – Introductions

The wonderful folks at Random House/Del Rey have this idea that I should make about ten thousand videos, and vlog.

I’ve really enjoyed making shout-out videos for their use in house, but they’re actually a bit hard for me to pull off. I’m very shy and introverted. I can fake it extremely well, mostly by making a concerted effort to project as much of my inner silliness and immaturity as I can. Then again, I know I’m awkward and weird, and I’ve found you can get quite far just by choosing to embrace those qualities, if you have them.

So, here’s a little intro video I dashed off yesterday introducing myself and the book. I probably look like an idiot, but oh, well! I’ll keep trying. I mean, I dream of the day the History Channel taps me to host their inevitable show on zombies throughout history, so I’d better be prepared when they do come calling.

    I love it. She’s a real cutey. I’ll definitely read the book.

    I think you sell yourself too short by far. You’re perfectly delightful on camera, and I believe it’s well documented that the most captivating extroverts are truly introverts in sparkly disguises. Or crinolines. :)

    CANNOT wait for your book to come out. Right up my Victoriana lovin’, steampunk lovin’, dead lovin’ alley. You probably already know about her, but author M.K. Hobson loves the costuming aspect like you. Her books are great…bustlepunk she calls it.

    So happy for you and your success. And loved hearing that you think minimalism is for the birds. My own death-spangled MS is tickled pink to hear it. Best of luck in writing the sequel.

    Aww, thank you, you’re so sweet! I haven’t read M.K. Hobson, actually, but I am absolutely adding her to my list – thank you for the recommendation! :D

    I can’t wait to read your book!!!! It looks amazing. You should make more videos, because you have a fun personality.
