I don’t have much to talk about so I thought I would just post this video I saw today. It’s Neil Gaiman promoting his last book, The Graveyard Book, on the Colbert Report. It’s not a new video, and any of you that watch Colbert regularly have probably already seen it, but it was new to me. Neil Gaiman had it posted as part of his blog entry today. You should read everything this guy writes. Even the children’s books. His style is poetic, his imagination is unbound, and everything he writes makes you feel like you’re just this side of somewhere dark and magical. Really, he’s incredible. Here’s a link to his blog. And here’s the video. Here’s a link to the video since I couldn’t get it to embed properly.
Whenever I hear him speak, I’m always amazed at how smart and witty he is. If I’m ever an author being interviewed, I don’t think I’ll be able to pull that off. Maybe if I had a British accent. It’s a natural advantage for sounding witty and smart.
