In Which I Humiliate Myself Because I ♥ Beth Revis

First, have you noticed how long my blog titles are lately. What's with that?


Second, there's this:


Which led to... Third, THIS:


I only have one question: How come *I* have to be on the still-shot of that??

LOL! I love it! Dancing Queen.... Get down, mama!

And hooray for Beth!

Liz Pezzuto said...

That was great - you guys are too funny. :)

I'm actually smack in the middle of Beth's book now and I. Am. Loving. It.

Amie Kaufman said...

I'm tucked up in bed with chicken soup and a thousand kleenex, grinning my head off. This is exactly how we should celebrate for each other! Love, love, love this--it's the total embodiment of writers cheering for each other instead of competing :)

Lindsay said...

Hee hee. Love the funky moves. I vote dancing video celebrations for everything ;D

And yay Beth!

Theresa Milstein said...

Awww, that's great. She's gonna love it. I bet Beth did some sweet dancing herself.

Em-Musing said...

Shake, shake, shake. Shake, shake, shake. Shake your...well, you guys sure know how to shake up some excitement for Beth. Her book sounds great. I also watched the clip of her explaining the spaceship. She's awesome.

Natalie Aguirre said...

It's great how you are supporting Beth. I'm so happy for her.

Jen Daiker said...

I don't think you humiliated yourself at all!! This was fabulous... I just hope Beth returns the favor when Possession is released :)

ladystorm said...

LOL, thats funny stuff.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

SO great! I just watched this awesome tribute you crazy Bookanistas (and one Bookanisto!) put together for Beth over on Carolina's blog. LOVE it! You're too cute, Elana!

Matthew Rush said...

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.

Lydia Sharp said...

I think, for once, YouTube got the still shot spot-on. It's perfectly posed, Elana.

And you all are amazing in this. :)

Renae said...

Congrats to Beth! What a way for you guys to celebrate, I love it!

Michelle McLean said...

Love the cool moves, Elana. You are a way better dancer than my husband. I have to be drunk to dance with him. ;)

Jonathon Arntson said...

I love that that is the still shot! It's too perfect! Well done, E!

And congratulations to her for hitting the bestseller list. Way to go! =oD

Margo Berendsen said...

Love that video! Made me want to get up and dance too! I have to toot my own horn and boast that I won a signed copy of ATU from Shannon Messenger. Shannon, stop dancing and send it to me! :)

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

I saw you comment about that on the email thread, and I was like, what's she talking about? She wasn't still. She was shaking her tushie and looking too adorable for words. And then I went to the video! Haha! LOVE that you were the one on the still shot. It's total perfection.

Had so much fun with this! Beth is a perfect reason to happy dance.
