A video blog in which I share some big news about my book!

UPDATE!!!!! I must edit this blog post because, I have received a video blog in RESPONSE to my video blog!! Tina Lynn Sandoval has posted a vblog of her victory dance, in honor of my big news, WHAT?!!! Do watch this amazingly spectacular video of awesome! Victory Dance for Diana Paz by Tina Lynn Sandoval. 

~~~

Hi everyone! I've been away for quite some time, which is not altogether unusual for me... sorry! Now that I'm back, I wanted to share some amazing news! About my book! This news is so amazing, mere exclamation point abuse and excessive capitalization are NOT ENOUGH!!! So, I did something I've never done before...

I VIDEO BLOGGED!

Gah!! Check out the oh-so-flattering image my webcam assigned as the cover for the video, ha! Am I about to whistle? Am I about to spit? It's a mystery...

In true novice form, I blogged on my bed, so every time I moved, the webcam bounced around and blurred up the video. Shaky-cam might have been a stylistic choice though, who's to say? Enjoy! Or giggle at my expense, I'm totally okay with that too!

Ta-dah! A video blog in which I share some big news about my book, TWISTS OF FATE.



Now I shall run around, squealing like crazy! Next week, when I've finished hyperventilating, I'll have a post up with more actual words. Have a great weekend!

And, I'm just repeating this because it bears repeating! Tina Lynn Sandoval is an amazing friend, critique partner, and all-around incredible human being. Do watch her video response to my big news! It's hilarious... and plus, the woman has MOVES! :D I love you too, Tina! Victory Dance for Diana Paz by Tina Lynn Sandoval.
