I'm less than a month away from getting the proofs for my new book, The Real Life Channel, which means I should be getting my promotional materials written. With Ric's permission, I'm setting up this thread to test out some of my material and get some input from you fine folks.
Why am I doing that? Well, The Real Life Channel is an adventure fantasy about a group of kids who make a TV comedy series. I like to say that it's not about YCDTOTV in the same way that the movie Galaxy Quest is not about Star Trek. Technically (and more important, legally), they're not the same, but a fan of the latter will find the former somewhat familiar.
In some ways, this is the story I should have written twenty years ago, when I was asked to do a treatment for YCDTOTV the Movie. On the other hand, the movie never went anywhere and this book's only a few months away from being published, so in the grand scheme of things it's for the best.
I'll start by showing you the "back cover blurb" I've written:
I still have to do some pieces for the official press release, an "Author Q&A" and a Study Guide. What the heck I'm going to write for a study guide is beyond me, but there you go.
If you have questions for me - and I realize that might be difficult since you don't have much to go on - feel free to ask them. Maybe you'll make it into the Q&A!
Okay? Let's see where things go from here...
