Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Ted Cruz have endorsed my book!

That, of course, is an outrageous lie. What’s true, is that I have come up with the craziest marketing idea to-date. See for yourself:



What do you think? So far these videos are responsible for exactly one confirmed sale – funny enough, from someone who was initially upset over my Twitter post of Donald Trump, but then got the joke, and the book!

I did it with a phone app called Face Swap Live. Youngsters at work were having a blast one day swapping faces, and once I saw it, I had to have it. I was on the couch that night, making myself look like Beyonce (that hair!), when it occurred to me that I could use it for business as well as for procrastination. Long story short, I made the videos above. I’ve played with lighting and makeup, so while it may look “slapped together”, each one took quite a bit of work. More will be coming,Β since you can literally import any photo you like. If you want to see what I come up with next, subscribe to my brand new YouTube channel.

Speaking of “any photo you like”, how about animating your book cover?

The possibilities are truly endless!

Have fun!

  4. Ana you are too funny. I love these ideas you come up with. By the way thank you on the book trailer blog. I finished mine today but not sure how to get the watermark off. But, it still turned out good. Thanks again, for helping a newbie to the business.

  8. Ana, your ingenuity knows no bounds (to use an over-worked cliche!). And here’s another: more power to your elbow.

  12. This is so funny. By some coincidence, my daughter just introduced me to the Face Swap app. It is so wonderfully childish, but I never would have thought of using it for book marketing. You’re so full of innovative ideas.
