Or cut and paste.  Save for when you need them.  They are just that good:

Speaking of promoting things...

and this is so very university student of me...

Have you considered enlisting a dedicated fan to create a facebook group or making one yourself? It would get things traveling word of mouth style among the college scene somewhat. Do you have a book teaser? Like movies do, but obviously in words and not film. Psh, I bet if you started facebooking now, all kinds of people would be excited and buy your book by Summer of 09. It's just like Pay It Forward, uh but not. If one person convinces three people this book sounds really awesome and is going to be super cool and then each of those three convince another three... yeah you know what I'm talkin' about.

Just sayin's.


And... erm... does this idea put me in the smart category with your agent??? The smart category is also the cool one...

lol. ;)

Oh, you're def. in the smart category, kid! Totally. :)

Facebook is a great idea. I have that and myspace on my list as venues to explore -- just haven't been able to get to it yet.

Well, I'm happy to have that verified. If anyone questions the validity of my presence in The Category, I will be referring them to you.

If you have any facebook questions when you get to that, please feel free to email. :)
