Cool Idea of the Day

Leave it to Powells to come up with something so cool:
Ian McEwan will be the subject of the first Out of the Book movie to be made by Powell’s Books, and the director will be Doug Biro, a former RCA Records creative director and director of music videos for Christina Aguilera and Rufus Wainwright, according to today’s New York Times.

The 23-minute video will be unveiled at BEA and shown at screenings June 13-17 through more than 50 bookstores across the country. McEwan’s new novel, On Chesil Beach, will be published on June 5 by Nan A. Talese/Random House. Except for his appearances in the video, McEwan will not tour U.S. bookstores for this title.

According to this New York Times article, more than 50 stores will be airing the film—including mine!

    My producer Paul and I have been releasing weekly MP3 radio and streaming video programs called E-Verse Radio. I had the newsletter for seven years and only recently met a producer who had the skills to bring it about. Every writer should be so lucky. The show is part of the Polar network, which usually features tech blogs. They can get as many as 40,000 viewers, which is where we hope to eventually get E-Verse. Have a look if you have a second.
