Marketing genius

I just discovered more adorable marketing from Miranda July, author/performer extraordinaire. Its not an easy thing for most authors I know to "market" their books. But Miranda July seems to come up with many delightful ways to endear you to her work without seeming like she has an agenda. I just discovered this little video on amazon. Hilarious.

Earlier in the year, before reading her book No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories, I found the web site she created for it. She's just added on to it here. I think if I could make marketing my books as fun and she does it would become my favorite pastime.

OH ha, yes I spelled that wrong (fixed it). This is what happens when I spend too many hours in front of the computer!
