Galleycat cites this video from Jen A. Miller, author of the new guidebook Jersey Shore: Atlantic City to Cape May, as an example of how an author can use sheer force of personality and “passionate expertise” to get readers interested in one’s book. Being gorgeous and summery blonde probably doesn’t hurt, either.
I dunno . . . maybe I should con one of my friends into galumphing around the Meadowlands gathering video footage for a promo of The Last Three Miles. But not today. It’s just too freakin’ hot. How shrewd of Jen Miller to write the kind of book in which, once the promo work is done, she can simply walk over to the beach. I’ll have to choose the subject of my next book with that in mind.
