our Dino joinin' the birthday 'bration for "Freezer Burn"

Hey pallies, likes you just gotta watch this very very short clip from our great Dino-lovin' pallie Miss Gayle Carline. 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. We says our congrats to Miss Gayle Carline on the first anniversary of "Freezer Burn" and our thanks to this great lady for liftin' up the name of our Dino is this way cool way!

Likes if by some misfortune, you have not had the priviledge of readin' Miss Gayle Carline's Dino-honorin' murder mystery, please run, don't walk, to your local book purveyer and order yourself a is likes totally totally Dino-riffic!!!! Again, thanks Miss Gayle for honorin' our beloved Dino as you honor your first novel on it's first birthday! Dino-celebratin', DMP btw, to see our Miss Gayle Carline's blogg, "On The Edge Of The Chair Of Literature," just clicks on the tagg of this Dino-gram.

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!

Why, Mr. Peters, how delightful to find my little video on your blog. I'm happy to report that the second book is now complete and will spend a couple of weeks "aging" before the editing process begins. But Benny is back in a big way, bringing his Dino-groove with him.

This clip is fantastic !
My only complaint is Everybody Loves Somebody was cut short just as I started singing along to it, maybe that`s why it was cut short, lol
But I`ll go to bed in a minute and listen to a cd which includes Everybody Loves Somebody.
I hope Freezer Burn becomes available here in Australia.
I`ll be looking out for it :)
