  • And action!

  • So, Mr James-

  • Is this rolling?

  • *sigh*

  • Yes...

  • And action!

  • So Mr James, is it true that you wrote a book?

  • Oh, that thing?

  • *egotistical scoff*

  • Yes, the rumours are true,

  • One afternoon, I was just thinking to myself:

  • "Why aren't I a published author yet?"

  • So, I just jotted down some notes and doodles,

  • And then I thought:

  • "You know, people should pay money for this!"

  • *silence*

  • So like,

  • It's just a bunch of pictures?

  • NO! I added words too!

  • It's a collection of stories and opinions of mine.

  • Some of which I've already made into videos,

  • And some that are complete original new stories.

  • Like one chapter is all about the Science Fair!

  • and...

  • Yeah, it is the same story I used in a YouTube video,

  • But I also go more in depth with the story...

  • And I draw new pictures.

  • YouTubers have a reputation of writing bad books.

  • Does this concern you?

  • OH?

  • BAD

  • B O O K S

  • H U H ? !

  • I'll have you know, that my book was the number 1

  • BEST selling book in Literature, Criticism and Theory!

  • Do I know what that means!?!??!?!

  • NO!

  • But did I beat 'Tyrant Shakespeare on Politics'?

  • YES!

  • Does that mean I'm better than

  • William Shakespeare himself?

  • I'll let YOU be the judge when you pick up your copy of the book! (Yey)

  • Link in the description.

  • *whispers*: I'll give you a clue the answer is 'yes.'

  • Are all authors as condescending as you?

  • Uhhh...

  • Do you even know what that word MEANS?

  • James, is there anything special that happens to people who order at Vidcon?

  • Yeah, the people who pre-order at Vidcon get a signed copy.

  • What about people who aren't going to Vidcon?

  • Sssssssssssssssssssucks to be them.

  • CUT! Come on.

  • Haha, that was a good joke.

  • So I actually am selling signed copies

  • I'll be signing the first one thousand copies to people who pre-ordered the book on my website.

  • Check the link in the description.

  • Also speaking of my site,

  • I revamped the whole and got a bunch of new merchandise.

  • Check it out if you have some free time.

  • Christmas is right around the corner guys...

  • There's also non-signed copies available if you just wanna pre-order regularly,

  • Or you can wait until August when the book comes out and buy it at

  • Barnes and Noble or your local book store

  • And depending on how well these signed copies sell

  • I'll release more.

  • We'll see.

  • If your interested then I'll update every thing on Twitter

  • So, follow me on Twitter to be updated

  • Anyway,

  • Authors sure can be stuck up sometimes.

  • Like this one time, when this pretty well-established

  • author was coming to my town.

  • And was doing a signing.

  • I say "well established" but I'm sure if I say his name

  • you guys wouldn't actually know who he is.

  • Anyway, at his signing he gave an hour-long talk.

  • And he said that he wasn't going to do a Q and A segment

  • because he said

  • He'd been an author for so long that he'd felt already answered every quesion ever.

  • Okay Mister "Yahoo Answers!"

  • Sorry your questions bothered you so much!

  • And then after we listened to him talk,

  • You got to go up to meet him to get a book signed.

  • But he was the most stereotypical

  • "I'm too good for you" celebrity I've ever seen

  • When you got to his table, he didn't say anything to you,

  • And if you wanted a picture, he wouldn't even look up at the camera

  • So my family has this picture of all of us standing and smiling next to this guy just...

  • looking down reading a book.

  • So, I will follow in that author's footsteps

  • and only take pictures with fans while signing my book

  • and looking like

  • this.

  • Contrast to that when I met

  • Steven Pastus.

  • Pastas?

  • *confused sounds*

  • Should've looked up how to spe-

  • Say it*

  • He's the creator of a comic strip called

  • "Pearls before Swine"

  • And all you need to know is that his comics are

  • in the newspaper, and he's really great.

  • He came to visit Arizona

  • and I was fifteen at the time,

  • So I was making stick-figure comics.

  • and I wanted to impress Steven...

  • So I got out my ruler and protractor

  • and I very carefully drew this comic.

  • How was your run?

  • Well let's just say...

  • Justin is all

  • P O O P E D

  • out!

  • *terrorising and overlapping laughter*

  • What happened?

  • I don't wanna talk about it.

  • Get it? He pooped his pants.

  • This isn't based on anything on real life, ok? I was fifteen

  • shut up.

  • I went to his book signing,

  • he was really awesome.

  • I showed him my comic.

  • He laughed.

  • And he told me to keep going.

  • And now, I'm a YouTuber

  • *boos*

  • I mean it wasn't just what he said that got me into doing comics and YouTube.

  • I wanted to do that way before I met him.

  • Anyway, he was nice.

  • Ironically enough, I was never a fan of reading.

  • And I think a big part of it was that teachers

  • forced you to read books you didn't wanna read.

  • So if this book becomes the next Romeo and Juliet or

  • Grapes of Wrath...

  • Teachers make their students write book reports on this book

  • Then I'll make it easy for all of you.

  • In the description of this video,

  • I will create an already completed book report for this book

  • Now I know what some of you are thinking

  • James, won't the teachers know if all the book reports are the same? *high pitched*

  • Yes they will, which is why I added some blank spaces for you to put in your own words.

  • It's sorta like a mad lib that you turn in for homework

  • and this book report doesn't even have to be on my book, you can use it for any book!

  • So if you have a book report due tomorrow, (It's summer...)

  • then check the link in the description.

  • Trust me, you'll get...

  • At least an 80 percent.

  • You know the people who already pre-ordered this book are pretty ballsy

  • They don't even know what this book's about.

  • For all they know, it could of just been a single picture

  • of me laughing with all the money they gave me

  • But its not that.

  • I promise.

  • That's just the inside sleeve.

  • And that's the end of the video everyone, I'll see you at Vidcon!

And action!
