A fun look at one writer's life: Parnell Hall

I discovered this video "Signing in the Waldenbooks by Parnell Hall" through a link shared in an online writer's group.

Mystery Author Parnell Hall stars in this catchy video that offers a few fun and sad insights about being a published author. I don't want to give anything away, but the person he sits next to at a conference is hysterical.

If you have a moment, watch this.

 Or this "King of Kindle" video.

My thanks to Parnell Hall for sharing the life of a published author and selling his books in way that certainly makes him stand out.

Would you do something like this to sell your books?


  1. He really came up with something unique to make himself stand out. Those videos have been embedded everywhere. Kind of makes you rethink whether to do a book trailer!


  2. These definitely hit home that a video done right gets the message across. Of course, I saw a book trailer a romance writer (I think) did with her children's toys. It was both funny and enjoyable.

  3. I've seen these before. I have a book trailer, but it's nothing like this. Live and let live? hehe These days a writer has to do something, anything! to be noticed. I heard of a writer taking it all off. Now that's sticking out of the crowd. Thanks for the visit and comment over at my place. And for the prayers for my Christopher. Have a lovely week. :-)

  4. Those were fun; I haven't seen them before.

  5. Robyn, I don't think I could do the "taking it all off." I'll leave that up to others. :) Hope all goes well for you and Christopher.
    Kimberly - glad to share something new. I thought these were fun.
