Back Talk Promo Video

Sorry to bombard you with back-to-back BACK TALK posts, but remember that secret project I was working on a few weeks ago? Well, it was a stop-motion paper doll adaptation of a scene from Back Talk! It is a bit silly—okay, very silly—but I put a lot of work into it, and I would love for you guys to check it out. Please pass it on to all your friends! I’m still trying to make Back Talk a bestseller and I need your help, peeps!!!

ps-yes, I finally figured out how to post a YouTube video. I’m becoming a techno-savvy genius! haha.

    I think that you need a weekly spot for mini episodes. Like novelettes. I’d watch it. It was very Gossip Girl…which I must admit I have been watching…and liking a bit.

  5. WAT says:

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAH! Like Meg says, that shit belongs on the CW!

    Some way to drink champagne! LOLOLOLOLOL!

  7. omg, this is brilliant! Holy Crapola, everyone should see this clip, so creative I absolutely love that you did this. What a great idea, I am spreading the word to everyone. So who is doing the voices?

    Aww, that was so cute. So far, all I’ve heard of Back Talk is exactly how you describe it–if Gossip Girl and The Devil Wears Prada had a baby. I’m sorry, I still haven’t been around to reading it–I don’t exactly have any spare bucks, and I can’t ask my ‘rents to buy anything for me these days. But believe me–it’s at the top of my “Books to Buy” list.

    I hope you’ve been well, and are enjoying the autumn. =)

    V. tech-savvy, sweetie! I’m impressed! =)

  11. jayne says:

    haha! that was great, so cute, and so funny! you’re like my favorite blogger ever! 🙂 i agree with meg we need mini eps! more more more! hehe

    btw, alex, i know i mentioned this in my last blog post, but i’m going to nYC next weekend and was wondering what i should make sure to do? best shopping, food, cultural activities? and whats overrated?

  12. jayne says:

    wow alex, that was quite a comprehensive list! thank you! i am def planning to check out the moma- i think van gogh is the current exhibit- yay he’s one of my favs, and probably the MET too, my family doesn’t do a lot of sightseeing, however we usually check out the major art museums in whatever city we’re in, and NY is top notch in the US. but other than all of the gorgeous art i’ll probably be doing a lot of shopping- hehe, hey it is cultural, you meet more locals that way compared to just sightseeing. haha, well ok, that’s my excuse and i’m sticking to it. so thanks for the great list of places to check out, i’ll definitely be using it. isn’t williamsbury where vanessa lives in the gossip girls books haha? wow, sad my knowledge of NYC comes from movies and teen lit…nice. and hopefully i will get to serinidipity, we’re staying near it. any other good food places though?
