Gena Showalter and Jill Monroe prove author videos can be fun

February 22, 2008

By Jenny B, Digital Content ManagerWhile catching up on one of my favorite book blogs, booksquare, I found this older post featuring a hysterical author video with Jill Monroe and Gena Showalter. Check it out!

Beyond the fact that a giggle is always a nice capper to a Friday afternoon, I love that booksquare is making a valid and too-often ignored point — author videos can be fun, funny, irreverent, and satirical while still promoting the author and her books.  Well done booksquare for pointing this out, and well done Jill and Gena for making a video that’s genuinely entertaining!

  1. We’ve played that video repeatedly at my house, to the point it has been absorbed into our arsenal of in-jokes. While stuck in traffic this morning, my daughter said, “Hey, this would make a great book: Goin’ to School Slooooooooowly.” Relieved a great deal of tension!

    There’s another one in which Jill mercilessly interviews herself, which is just as hilarious.
