Daughter of the Drunk at the Bar Video Trailer

When I think about my main audience for Daughter of the Drunk at the Bar it is, obviously, adult children of alcoholics. We’re everywhere. It is with this group in mind I made a video trailer for my book. (All the cool authors have video trailers). I did it by myself, with just a little emotional support from HT during moments of frustration as I learned how to use my trusty iMovie capabilities.

Please try not to let my fancy permed orange 80’s hair distract you from the poignancy of the video.

Please forward said video to anyone and everyone you know.

Please let it find the people who would benefit from reading my book.

Please know my blonde ponytails were once used as paint brushes, when a little neighbor boy and I happened upon a gallon of pink paint in the garage and painted everything within reach, including the Toyota. There was only one brush. What could I do?

Please know my sister got a real xylophone, and I got stuck with a “baby” Fischer Price piece of crap. Santa? I was not fooled, nor was I impressed.

Please know my little brothers are as handsome now, as they were cute back then.

Okay, enough dilly-dallying. Ready set go. I hope you like it.

    I’ve sent this posting with its video on to about 25 friends who I hope will send it on to their friends. So the little rock thrown into the large river ripples out.

    Your book touches me deeply. I, too, lived with an alcoholic father and have spent
    many years letting go of the bad memories.

    Thank you, Michelle, for your courage in writing your memoir.

    I can really relate to this, Michelle. Dee Ready sent this on to me & I can’t wait to get the book. I intend to send it on to all my siblings–there are 9 of us–as we also grew up with an alcoholic father. Unfortunately, I was 2nd to the youngest & I really don’t remember any good times that included my father. But my mother & siblings were great once we all grew up.

    I’m sure you are touching many souls with this & the book. Thank you!!

    Oh, my heart stilled at the picture of your rabbits and your dear grandmother. Seeing all of those pictures after reading the book really got to me. Thank you for sharing your gift and your story, Michelle. This book is a *ministry*.

    I definitely agree about the brothers being so handsome- well definitely one of them. Love seeing those old pictures Michelle!! And of course I love how the Haun’s have blonde hair when they were all younger pretty much!
