The video above comes to us via Kobo by way of Ebook Friendly, and though it’s obvi­ously meant to sell Kobo read­ers, the video is actu­ally a great intro­duc­tion to eread­ers in general.

 

The won­der­ful folks over at Brain Pick­ings put together a roundup of 7 great book trail­ers. The post went up way back in April, but since I’m start­ing to think about cre­at­ing a trailer for my upcom­ing young adult novel Dar­win, Singer, this post caught my eye. Think I’ll be able to get Zach Gal­i­fi­anakis for my trailer?

 

Even though I’m focused on build­ing my fic­tion career, work­ing for myself, I’m still seek­ing out free­lance work, which means that I have to make myself appeal­ing to oth­ers. That’s why I love this post from 99%, which dis­cusses the way that per­sonal bios, life sto­ries, are replac­ing dry, stale resumes. There are also tips on how to beef up your bio.

 

From the WTF and NSFW files comes this sales trailer for Drac­ula 3D, directed by Dario Argento. The trailer, brought to my atten­tion by Slash­film, is meant to find dis­tri­b­u­tion for the film, which is still in post-production, so many of the effects are unfin­ished. But that doesn’t stop this trailer from fea­tur­ing breasts, a behead­ing, some melt­ing flesh and a giant pray­ing man­tis. Enjoy!

 

And finally, because I want to eat a cookie every day between now and Jan­u­ary 1st, I give you the Seri­ous Eats roundup of 30 recipes from their office cookie swap. nom nom nom
