Operation We're Not Sure What To Call It started today at the Festival of Books. Oh yes, started. Pretty soon, Visual Chronicles will be a household name. Or it least a Dorm name. Plenty of bright eyed UCLA students will be dazzled by the image of our book cover on postcards decorating hallway bulletin boards tomorrow morning. If you attended the Fest and stopped at the churro cart near the Barnes and Noble booth, you may have received a churro wrapped in a Visual Chronicles postcard instead of that waxy paper that reminds us of toilet paper in Italy.
As we schmoozed our way through the festival, we noticed the same thing we notice at every festival or convention we go to. I imagine it is not so at cosmetic conventions, but what is the deal with so many people not using Anti-frizz products? A good sister would tell you to fix your hair, and we're sisters. Sisters, please, de-frizz your hair! A good sister would also tell her brother that no girl (or guy with any taste) would date a guy with a patchy, frizzy beard with lint stuck in it. We overheard many men saying they've been too busy writing their novels to shave. WHAT?! We've been working on our book (and that includes the ART for it) for well over a year and neither of us stopped shaving our legs or stopped getting our eyebrows waxed. In fact, we've started looking better since work on the book began. Our advice to new authors -since we are some- spend your advance on your appearance.
* As you can see in the hidden camera photo, even our brother, Tod, was not immune to Operation We're Not Sure What To Call It. [Before you click on the link to Tod's blog, remember he's the one who swears a lot. He also has comments on the FOB there. Lee also posts a FOB review in his blog~ he's the brother who loves fan fiction and vanity presses!]
