According to Anita, EARTHLING HERO is an “inexpensive middle grade ebook”—at $.99, she’s right—that she’s hoping will appeal to kids and to families who read aloud together. Below is a short description of the book and then a short video of Anita singing.
Imagine waking one summer night to see someone standing beside your bed. The “someone” is a complete stranger, but looks exactly like you. That’s what happens to eleven-year-old Mikey Murphy. The next few days are filled with adventures—breaking into a high-security military installation, engaging expert assassins in hand-to-hand combat, searching for an evil alien’s hideout in the middle of a national landmark—all with two new alien friends at his side. Can Mikey and his friends survive their adventures and save the world?
That was Anita’s singing debut. Doesn't she look adorable in her cowboy boots?
Now are you ready to watch Anita and me dance? Because that brazen lady just challenged me to a dance-off! Here’s how it works: On May 2nd, Anita and I will each post one-minute videos on our respective blogs. Anita’s video will show her dancing, my video will show me dancing. We’ll count the number of comments we each get during the 24 hours after we post the videos. The person with the least number of comments (and you can comment on both blogs, everyone), will place $10.00 in a kitty. We’ll post new dance videos on the first Mondays of September, October, November and December and keep track of the comments each of those months, too, so that there will be $50.00 in the kitty in December. We’ll give that money away to a to-be-determined charity.
I accept your challenge, Anita. Let the dancing begin! It's ON!
