Wednesday Videos Dancing in the Buffyverse

WednesdayVideoI love Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel so this video of all the dancing moments in the shows, set of “Footloose”, was a gift from above. This isn’t the best edited video of all time, but I sure got a kick out of it, and I laughed so hard when Giles started shaking his magic gourd that I fell over. I’m a simple woman of simple pleasures, what can I say.

For a more tightly edited video, here’s a movie mashup of over 100 dance scenes set to “Uptown Funk”

Want to see my next Book Cover?

vampire heart on a black backgroundMy next book, Romance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is scheduled for release on July 7, 2014.  This book looks at romantic relationships in the TV Show.  I found that every season has it’s own theme.  Some of the relationships were great and some were train wrecks, but all of them served to reinforce and illustrate the theme of that season.

My hope is that this book will be a fun, though-provoking read for Buffy fans.  There are plenty of quotes to keep us laughing and some trivia as well.  I’m very excited!  The book is $.99 and is available for preorder at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.

Here’s the back cover blurb:

Was Angel Buffy’s one true love? Or was Spike her destined one-and-only? Did she blow a good thing with Riley? Did Xander mess up and miss out with Cordelia, or was he meant to be with Anya? Which is the more tragic love story—Willow and Oz, or Willow and Tara? Was anyone rooting for Buffy’s mom to get it on with Giles?

Revisit the sometimes destructive and undeniably unforgettable relationships that make up the Buffyverse: Buffy’s intense, occasionally soul-destroying romance with Angel and why it never would have worked; her relationship with Riley, the Boy She Thought Was Normal (But Really Wasn’t); the on-again, off-again thing with Spike and why it might have been Buffy’s best bet; Xander, the jerk in nice-guy clothing, and why he and Anya were soul mates; why Willow had to lose the perfect werewolf boyfriend to find true love with Tara; and much more.

And here’s a larger look at the cover:

I have no control over the cover but I thought the art department did a great job.  Looking forward to July 7!  Of course while you wait you can always check out my first book, which also sells for .99 at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers:

Wednesday Video Plus Big News!

WednesdayVideoBig news!  My second book, Love at Stake: Romance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be released this summer, yay!  Specific release date TBA.

I’ve been working on revisions all week and just sent in a re-worked draft.  In honor of this occasion I present the two most goofy, immature Buffy videos I know of.  As Buffy would say, “What are you, twelve?”

Yep.  Pretty much.
