I'm On the TeeVee.

I don't have an iPad, but I am typing this on a four-year-old MacBook–which I realize is so old in computer terms it's practically steampunk. But if I command my old-timey inter-net browsing soft-ware routine to visit the correct address, I can watch this national commercial for iPads, which features a shot of one of my books at the ten-second mark:



There it is, a Fat Vampire second from the upper left on the virtual bookshelf:

I looked at the manufacture date on my laptop the other day. August 2002. Wow. It stills works, but like a musket in a world of laser guns...

Hmmm... Shouldn't you get a commission or something for that? Maybe you can get a free iPad out of it? :)

Very cool! A little extra publicity for your book to those with a sharp eye (or a pause button). Do they notify you or your agent that your book will be in the commercial? I just played the commercial, btw, and my 11 yr old son who is ten feet away exclaimed, "It's the Ipad song!"

I was just in the Manhattan Beach Apple store tonight, replacing my defective ipod4g, and they had the iPad images from that commercial on the wall in the form of a HUGE poster/banner . Your book is now on the Apple store walls. The image of your book was bigger than my head too, and I have a big head dude....

AND YET I CONTINUE TO WONDER WHEN I'M GETTING MY FREE iPAD.
