My First Vlog...Spotlighting Three Debut Authors...

*chuckling nervously*

I hope you enjoy my first vlog... I wanted to spotlight three debut authors for 2011. Maybe I'll do more...what do you think?


Happy Viewing,
Coffee and a Book Chick


  1. Wow, you look and sound so professional! It seems like you probably do something like this in your non-blogging life!

  2. that was just too cool! you look beautiful on video and sound amazing! I cannot believe I have not gotten to any of these books yet! I did not realize Shades of Gray was a ya book...now I'm even more anxious to read it!

  3. *So sorry for the repost! Little editing adjustment!*

    rhapsodyinbooks - You are much too kind! And I wish this was something I did professionally - you know anyone hiring? :)

    Stacy at A Novel Source - Thank you so much :) And yes, do read these books, I think you'll really enjoy them!

  4. Between Shades of Gray looks so wonderful! I first heard about it a couple months ago and want it so badly! You can bet I'll be back for the giveaway. :D

    Great vlog!

  5. I was going to say the same thing as Rhapsody - you look and sound like a pro! I adored Between Shades of Gray (my review goes up Saturday) so I'm looking forward to the interview tomorrow.

  6. Wow! I loved this :) You did a great job on the vlog, very polished and professional.

    Oh, and the books sound great too :)

    Congratulations! I hope you do more of these.

  7. That was very cool! Thanks, enjoyed that. All of the book sound great, esp the last one, Shades of Gray. I love it when books reveal little known parts of history to us. It's one of the most important functions of literature.\

  8. Can't believe this is your first vlog... like Jill said, you sound so polished and professional. Very well done!!

  9. Amanda - Do stop by! I have two copies to give away!

    bermudaonion - Thank you! Oh, my goodness, I was so nervous! :) I can't wait to read your review of the book this weekend!!

    Becca - Thank you, thank you! Now, if you all could have seen the clips that went into the trash can thanks to either the dog or cat interrupting! :) And yes, the books are fantastic - do check them out!

    Kathmeista - Thanks so much - Between Shades of Gray is a beautiful and heartbreaking novel; there's definitely so much to learn from this one as well!

    JoAnn - Thank you so much! But, I should say it's my first completed, finalized, and edited vlog - you should have seen what the other ones looked like!! :)

  10. How wonderful to LISTEN to your recommends. This was lovely. Good picks too!

  11. Great vlog! You're so well-spoken! I like the editing too!!

  12. by editing I meant the film reel effect thing. =)

  13. Awesome vlog! I recognize that first one VERY well. I've been looking at Evenfall. I think I might have to get it now.

  14. Great vlog! I always check these out because I'm curious about what other bloggers look like :-) You spoke so well and the pace was great, I'm very impressed with your ability to review like that, I would be a stumbling mess :-) I've read ATU and LOVED it, but haven't read the other two. Thanks for bringing them to my attention!

  15. What a enjoyable segment. Very great speaking voice! Thanks so much.

  16. Love it!
    You look great and sound so professional!
    *high five*

    -ATU is soo good!
    -Wow Evenfall sounds realllly good when you put it that way!

  17. Loved it, but next time include do include the pets (while they're sleeping so as not to distract). : )

  18. Natalie! Fantastic! You look so comfortable and speak so eloquently. You're a natural. I have had Evenfall on my TBR list and added Shades of Gray after reading your earlier post review. Looking forward to more of your vblogs!

  19. I looooove your vlog!!! Definitely do more.

  20. Great vlog! I wish I had the guts to try this sometime. Also, now I am really excited to read Shades of Gray!

  21. Well done - a pleasure to listen to. I look forward to more and all those books sound wonderful.

  22. What a wonderful first vlog! You're so confident and well-spoken on video...I'm very impressed :-) I do hope you'll make this a regular feature, because (a) I love seeing/hearing from other bloggers through vlogs, and (b) I love hearing about hand-picked favorite debuts! There are so many out there that it certainly helps to hear about someone's favorites.

  23. Magnificent job!!!!! Your vlog turned out so well. Now I have a face to put to the name. All three books you highlighted sound quite interesting. I'll be sure to check them out.

  24. My first vlog viewing!! I am so glad it was you. Applause!!!

  25. wow! you are so photogenic and a natural at this vlog thing! have you ever worked in media?? i would never dare to do this because i'd have to do 1,428 takes and edit it into oblivion! great job and thank you for showcasing three books i haven't really hear much about, with the exception of across the universe.

  26. Oh I love your vlog post! I agree with everyone, you look great and like you've been doing this forever. Great job!

  27. Great vlog. You look and sound great!

  28. Michelle (red Headed Book Child - It was a lot of fun to share these books in a different format. And I'm glad you like the picks, too! :)

    Jenny - Thanks! The film reel effect was my favorite! I was so proud when I figured out how to do that! LOL

    ajmitchell - Yes, do pick up Evenfall! It might be one of my favorites! :)

    mummazappa - Too funny, I'm the same way! I watch everyone's vlogs because I'm nosy *ahem* I mean curious! :) Since you've already read Across the Universe, you MUST pick up Evenfall and Between Shades of Gray!

    Diane (Bibliophile by the Sea - Thanks! (It was a LOT of takes, though!)

    Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com *high five* back at you! :) Yes, pick up Evenfall - sooo good!

    Digital Graces Photography - Yes, I'll definitely try to get the cat and dog to sit aristocratically for me; they were part of my multiple takes as they were trying to figure out what I was doing just standing there for like an hour! :)

    Annie at Buttery Books - Thanks so much! Evenfall was incredible and Between Shades of Gray will leave you thoughtful and crying. Well, come to think of it, they both will leave you like that! :) At least, it did with me.

    Andi - I wil definitely try more; hopefully I can maintain the same non-stuttering way that I would normally do! :)

    Amused - Thanks! Trust me, though - it took a long time for me to hit the "publish" button to release the post out onto the blogosphere! :)

    Cat - Thanks so much! And let me know if you read the books - would love to get your opinion on them!

    Erin - So glad you liked it!! Yes, I think I'll make it a regular feature - I just have to make sure my hair and make-up are looking the way I like...! :) Ok, that sounded vain. But, it's true! LOL I also like hearing and watching other bloggers' vlogs - much different way to share!

    Jenny Girl - Thanks! I'd love to know what you think of the books if you get a chance to read them! They will be well worth your time, I promise!

    BookQuoter - Yay, so happy you enjoyed viewing your first vlog and it was me! Woot! :)

    theliterarylollipop - Thanks! I really enjoyed watching other bloggers' vlogs - hopefully we'll all get to see one from you, too!

    nat @ book, line, and sinker - You are much too kind! Many thanks for the kind words! No, never worked in media, but will accept a change in the job world for something fantastically fantastic! :) I did do multiple takes, believe me! I forced my husband to stay outside so he couldn't hear me - he was out there for like an hour...LOL

    Iliana - Thank you so much! Hopefully they get better and I can figure out the editing portion so I don't have to do it all in one take! :)

    Kathleen - Thanks so much! I will hopefully do more, so I'm so glad you all liked it! (Or were wonderfully kind!)

  29. Great job! I think you should do more of these. You made me want to read all 3 of those books!
