Baaaaaaaah Means Book Trailer!

naked sheep book trailerFirst, please don’t ask me where I got the image for the post or what it means.

Many of you have been hanging around these parts for quite some time now. Part of the journey that you’ve chosen to take with me is celebrating trials, tribulations, victories ripe with herds of Awesomeapotamuses, and fuck-ups of colossal proportions.

Launching my first book – The Power of Unpopular – turned out to be an epic fuck up on my part. Bad timing, a PR team that didn’t come together, sheer exhaustion — put all that in a bowl and it turned into something not even I wanted to down a bowl of.

And yes – I just ended a sentence with OF.

But here’s a dirty little secret: I like fucking up. So I tend to fuck up quite often. Because it gives me a giant pile of things that don’t work so I can get to the things that do in much shorter order.

So, I’m planning a relaunch of the book for late September that coincides with my big East Coast swing — and the first part of that was getting the goddammitall book trailer done.

I can’t thank John at Quality Schnallity enough for taking my book, brain, and personality and putting it into a great one-minute book trailer. He’s a professional, damn fine human being, and I can’t recommend him highly enough.

So without further ado, I give to YOU…the super duper official book trailer for The Power of Unpopular. And if you haven’t taken a peek inside yet (and it’s OK if you haven’t), you can stop by this page and gimme your email address — you’ll have a FREE teaser for the book sent straight to your inbox.

Enjoy — as the next video you’ll be seeing of me involves a Bat Girl costume. You bastards.

Good for you. You believe in yourself. You show that to us. Leading by example is far better than leading by words. But they help too.

Is this just a ploy to get me to buy a second copy on the relaunch?

Congrats Erika. Hoping the East Coast swing brings you to my neck of the woods so I can get your John Hancock on a copy. Thought the video was pretty clever! I admire your perseverance.

Great video! Ordered the book and have it ready here in DC for your autograph. When are you stopping by our fine city?

OK, so I really want to ask about the photo, but since you already said not to, can you at least tell me where I can buy it? :) I love your book and its message. No offense to Zappos, but I'm really sick of hearing about their awesome social media program and how you as a lonely entrepreneur can have a fab customer service team just like Zappos. Not going to happen. Next? It takes talent to bitch slap someone back into reality and still be helpful. Thanks for what you do and I wish you all the best on your book tour!
