Bookanistas Happy Dance for Beth Revis in a Vlog of Solidarity and Ultimate Embarrassment

Across the Universe So, by now many of you already know that Beth Revis, author of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, is pretty freaking amazing. And not just because her book debuted on the NYT Bestseller list!!! She's an incredible person with endless kindness. For me, that goes a long way. And we Bookanistas are so happy for Beth's success that we just can't stop dancing for her.

So we decided to make a video.

An embarrassing oh-my-gawwwd-did-we-really-do-this sort of video.

And we're going to share it with you. Because we love Beth and would walk through fire for her. In this case, we walk through the FIRE O' HUMILIATION.

Here you go.




Not sure if you spotted me in there. But rest assured, the embarrassment is hard earned. It took me a long time just to make a thirty second video clip (not too humiliating) to show Beth just how much I love her. In fact, I had way more unusable material than usable. But in the spirit of ridiculousness, I thought I'd share a short unusable outtake with you.

Beth, THIS is how much I love you.



Congratulations on your successful launch, Beth Revis! I wish you the very best in your writing career. You're a super star. And a remarkable human being.

  2. I always go to LiLa's first thing when I get to work, because their post is always up, right at 6, but maybe I should come here first. Not that it matters.

    Anyway, point is I already saw this over there, so I'm going to leave the same comment here:

    Was that supposed to make me cry a little? Because it didn't. Not one bit.

    What's with all the batman and darth vader costumes? I mean besides them being awesome, of course.

    ...

    What an incredible group of people you all are. I'm quite proud to know each one of you.

    And CONGRATULATIONS Beth! You rule.

    P.S. Carolina, you make an awesome rock star.

  7. And this is why people need writer friends: to dress up and dance all over the place in celebration of good news. This is pure awesome.

  9. That's quite possibly the most low-impact injury in the history of dance. But, y'know, you made it look good, darlin'. :)
