BAD TASTE IN BOYS trailer!

So. Know how I've been taunting you for a long, long time about the SEKRIT THINGS OF AWESOMENESS going on behind the scenes? I can finally show you one of them, and the rest aren't far behind!

Without further ado, let me present the BAD TASTE IN BOYS Trailer of Epic Epicness, with huge thanks to director Valerie Kemp, the crazy friends and theater students who acted in it, and book bloggers Shanyn and Tirzah who are extras extraordinaire. You have no idea how cool it was to watch my characters come to life and wield swords made out of PVC.

I'll shut up now and let you watch it.



And to celebrate this momentous, PVC-filled occasion, I'm giving you a chance to win a signed finished copy of BTIB (when the books arrive on my doorstep, that is)! Leave a comment on this post to be entered. Tweet, blog, facebook, or skywrite about the trailer for an extra entry each. Please list all your entries in the comments, because I can't even remember what day it is let alone keep track of these things on my own. I'm going to enjoy the long weekend (it's my wedding anniversary on top of the rest of the awesome) and will pick a winner on Tuesday morning.

And if that's not enough excitement for you, check out what my fellow Bookanistas are recommending (and in some cases, giving away) this week!

By the way, just finished reading Putting Makeup on Dead People, which I ordered after I read your Bookanista review. I really liked it so thanks for the recommendation.
