Is it me or have there been a lot of book commercials on TV lately? I like Karen Marie Moning, but if I saw her Faefevercommercial one more time, I’d puke my guts out and send the contents to her publicist. Five times in one hours–yes, I counted them–is more than enough. Now, I’m seeing Kelley Armstrong, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and someone else whose name escapes me at the moment. I think those twenty second commericials are $20,000 a pop and that’s conservative guessing on my part.
While I think it’s a great idea, the timing for these things couldn’t be any worse. Given that we’re in a recession, I have the feeling book buying isn’t a high priority on anyone’s list right now. 😦 Boy, I hope I’m wrong about that.
