Video Blog! MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza

Hey, everyone. I made a video blog. I KNOW! It’s amazing. You’ve never seen me do one before. And that’s because I never have. But I was inspired by my friend, Debra Driza, who does crazy videos on her blog (check out her videos about Kathleen Peacock’s HEMLOCKย and her own MILA 2.0 ARCs). So here goes (no making fun of my voice or Chicago accent). Enjoy!

Here’s the “clicky button” for MILA 2.0 on Goodreads!

    • Thanks, Rebecca! Video editing appears to have a learning curve, but I think I did OK for my first try :). I’ll have to think of a few more. (And I’m always excited to share chocolates ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

  1. Wonderful shenanigans! Loved it. I always love seeing vlogs from my blogger buddies because it fills out my mental picture of the person.

    MILA sounds great, and that cover is awesome. Congrats to Debra on the book and to you on your first vlog!

  2. LOL…have a lot of free time do we??? the shot with Buzz made me laugh..and I love the Adirondack chair….will you do the same for my book when it comes out????

    • Well…I wrangled my kids up for some of these activities, so it wasn’t so bad. (My son was riding horses with me, it was the only way I didn’t feel silly making a book ride a horse in my side yard where my neighbors could see me ๐Ÿ™‚ ). And my husband is somewhat obsessed with Adirondack chairs, that one is fun because we have a tree stump as an ottoman. If you want a video for your book, you’ll have to send it to me. Will the characters in your book enjoy riding fake horses and eating Dairy Queen :)?

  3. ERIN!!!!!!!!!! Loved your Vlog! Two things that weirded me out… 1) I have been saying “Mill-ah 2.0” in my head all this time and 2) I’ve been saying “Dry-za”.

    3) I obviously have a weird accent or something ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Anyway, you’re awesome!

    • LOL, Kathy! I had to DM Deb to make sure it was Mee-Lah. The books explains it’s short for Mia Lana, so I figured it was, but I had to double check. And I used to think her last name was pronounced Drizza (like drizzle with an a). I might just call her that anyway. Like, “Fo’ shizzle, Debra Drizzle.” ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. LOLOL, you can TOTALLY call me Debra Drizzle! And OMG, I want to go to your house so you can feed me All The Things (and especially BLIZZARDS! *bliss*) Plus, I want that Buzz doll. Just sayin’.

    Thanks SO MUCH for the awesome vlog–so honored and impressed.

    • You’re welcome! It was fun to make and I had a good book to inspire it.

      Anytime you’re out in Naperville, stop by and we’ll go get Blizzards! I thought Buzz was a particularly good friend for MILA, given he has his own identity crisis and struggled realizing he’s not what he thought he was. <–stretching? Maybe :).

      Good luck with everything as release day approaches (and after!).
