Apparently you're sadly 20th century if you're an author who doesn't have a video on YouTube.
This video by the pretty darn funny Marc Acito promotes his new novel Attack of the Theater People.
This makes me a little insecure. I don't have half of his wit and charm--even less so on film, where my nose gets even more Slavic and my words desert my brain. I think I'll just have to continue to be 20th century while I bury myself in my work.
And I'll let my publisher do the video for my book. I recently discovered that's a little perk of my indie press: they create a video, and I don't even have to be in it.
