Book publishing, 101

Most of the time, I’m of the feeling there should be a constitutional amendment barring the dissemination of videos online.

I’m going to make an exception, however, because I think this video posted by author Dennis Cass may very well be the funniest piece of book-publishing related satire I have ever seen. It’s also the first piece of advertising, viral or not, that actually made me go out and buy a book…which, by all appearances–manic depression, AADD, writer’s block, and the like–looks to be right up my alley. Anyone who hasn’t been involved at all in the publishing “business” but is in the very least bit curious should check this out. For anyone involved in publishing, this will likely make you spit up your coffee.

Doesn’t Charlie Manuel know Tom Gordon used to pitch for the Yankees?

I have no idea why this even surprises me anymore.
