Promoting Waiting For My Cats to Die ebook Edition

I made a Youtube video to promote the ebook edition of my memoir, Waiting For My Cats to Die. This is the short version. I made a longer version first, with outtakes from me trying to figure out what I should do. I thought that was funny, but a couple of friends thought it was long and might only be funny to my friends.

I agreed, but I think the short one is kinda eh. Book promoting is hard. Here is the longer version if you can stand it.

A spoil sport at the East Parade last Sunday.

  2. Kind of hard to top Greg’s comment–won’t even try.
    But I LOVED the video. For some reason the time lapse segment just made me laugh and laugh–too bad we can’t pill cats in actual time lapse mode so it goes faster!

  3. hee hee! Videos cracked me up. And I never knew your cats were so big! Maybe is just the perspective from the laptop cam, but you look itty bitty behind those fur balls!

  4. Aw, thank you. Cats are my main audience, it’s true.

    Greg, that was AMAZING, thank you. I appreciate the effort!!

    CR: I was so annoyed about the time lapse. I had to wait until the next day to try again, because I couldn’t over-medicate him. I ended up having to put that shirt on again and again so it looked like it was all the same shoot. I even got a haircut in-between, and in the last shot of the new shorter version one, my hair is much short.

    Nadine, my cats are monster. Finney is 20 pounds. Buddy used to be too, but now he’s 12 1/2, which I guess is semi-normal, but he seems rail-thin to me.

  5. Just this morning I read Betsy Lerner’s blog and saw the trailer for Waiting For My Cats to Die and immediately bought the book from Amazon. I have pilled many cats. It is the best book trailer in the history of Western Civilization. The book is wonderful.

    Thank you.

  6. THANK YOU!! Seriously, thank you!!!!! Your post has helped make me feel less self-conscious about that video. And of course, a big THANK YOU for buying my book!!!!
