July 5th was the first anniverary of Miss Gayle's stellar murder and mayhem tome "Freezer Burn" that features Dino-addict character Benny Needles and to 'brate the book's one year mark, Miss Carline decided to throw a birthday bash for it by creatin' a birthday vid on youtube.
And, likes I am likes totally totally Dino-thrilled to say the b-day vid is likes all Dino-focused....with our Dino partyin', hat and all, and the sounds of our Dino singin' his signature Dino-tune "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" at the end of the clip.

Even books need birthdays
Freezer Burn was officially launched a year ago. One of the nice things about books, apart from the sheer beauty of the written word and the way they take you to exotic lands and introduce you to interesting people, is their longevity. Books released years ago are still in print and being sold at bookstores, on Amazon, and in other retail nooks and crannies.
So I don't believe in ditching last year's book for this year's model. Add to that the fact that this year's book isn't ready yet, and I really want to keep trying to get Freezer Burn into as many hands as possible.
In a rather looney moment, I got an equally looney idea: Have a birthday party for the book. After reason returned, I decided not to truly host a birthday party, but to make a video of a party to advertise my book. Brilliant!
Or not. I don't know, but I did it. It's on YouTube now, so the damage is done. Let me know what you think (but please be kind).
You can still buy Freezer Burn at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and independent bookstores everywhere - it's available in paperback, Kindle, Nook, and other e-reader format!
