A Day in the Life of Suzie & Jo

You might think this is how @dankrokos got his agent.  You'd be wrong.  Here's the truth:

Yay! Our film debut!!

Holly said...

Oh my, that was the funniest video ever. I seriously laughed out loud at my desk! Excellent.

C.M. Villani said...

Okay that was very funny. :) Coodos on the nice sense of humor.

nkrell said...

Nice job! I especially enjoyed the smackdown. You should expect a call very soon from Spielberg or Tarantino. "Pulp Fiction Revisted."

nkrell said...

By that, I totally meant 'Revisited'. *hangs head in shame*

Delilah S. Dawson said...

Oh, that was just brilliant. You guys have a dream job-- doing what you love and having fun doing it. Plus all that Dougie Howser theme music in the background.

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

I agree. Brilliant. You two would make great movie stars. ;)

Lisa and Laura said...

Oh. My. God. This was epic. Well done ladies.

Brandy said...

Love it.

Emily J. Griffin said...

O'Doyle Rules-- by far the best part.

Awesome indeed.

Mandy said...

O'Doyle Rules?!?! The best part of the entire clip!!! You HAVE to make more of these! :D

Alicia Gregoire said...

I loved this. And I'm still smiling about it.

Monica said...

Hahahahaha!! OMG, that was hilarious!! Y'all crack me up! Happy April Fool's Day, Suzie and Jo!

Aimee said...

Very funny! I hope you guys never fight again--it looked brutal!

Dawn Kurtagich said...

I love the life of an agent, lets all be one for a day!

Christina Lee said...

Too dang funny!!!!!!!!

Stephanie J. Blake said...

So funny. Thanks for the smiles.

MeganRebekah said...

LOL!!!!
What a great behind-the-scenes glance into the operations of an agent. I'm sure that every aspiring author pictures EXACTLY the same thing happening with their manuscript.

inkwench said...

That was hysterical!

Little Ms J said...

Adorable!

Angela said...

BWAHAHAHAAAA. Can't wait to hear what Janet thinks of this!!

Kody Keplinger said...

OMG, you two are toooooo amazing! So good! LOL!!!

Tahereh said...

LOL

that was. that was...

that was genius. inspired by genius.

incredible.

hahahahahah

Loretta Nyhan said...

OMG, too funny.

The soundtrack kills me!

Shelby Bach said...

OMG, that was AWESOME! I couldn't stop giggling. Totally the perfect way to kick off April Fool's day. :-D

Anissa said...

Oh. My. God. THAT was freaking fantastic!!!

Jus said...

Classic! :D

Abby Stevens said...

Oh, that is too funny. I felt like I was looking at my house instead of your offices - I have that same Christmas TJ Maxx bag (my cats have played/slept in it until they tore the seams) and the same pillows (the green circles in squares ones) that were on the red couch.

Nice shout out for The DUFF! And I love the twist where The Janet Reid swoops in and steals the client! :D

Lisa Desrochers said...

I'm just glad you read mine before you got to Dan's. He's ruined you for all other authors. O_O

suzie townsend said...

Oh no Lisa, we have battles like this Every. Day. Joanna has attacked me at least twice in envy since you didn't query her with PD. :)

Michelle Schusterman said...

LOLOL!!

That was hilarious - slithery indeed. :)

Kirsten Hubbard said...

you guys are beyond adorable.
loved the inspirational music and the mutual asskicking. now that's what I call a passion for books.

Rebecca said...

Hilarious! Can this please be the start of a series?!

TerryLynnJohnson said...

Love it! A series - great idea Rebecca!

Kathleen Ortiz said...

Beyond. Amazing.

Mireyah Wolfe said...

I would've laughed so much harder and louder if I hadn't been in a public place, but omg that was just hilarious! I loved the maniacal laughter at the end! That's just what I always thought Janet sounds like...

Bethany said...

I think it's obvious that the soundtrack made this film.

Kay said...

My old man came up the stairs to my office to find out why I was laughing so hard. Sorry, you have such sneaky competition.

Nikki said...

FUNNY! Y'all are so adorable.
(Seriously, Joanna, never get in a book fight with Suzie. For one thing, she has more books than ANYONE, so it's an ammunition supply issue. You can't win.)
Now, Suzie, stop fighting with Joanna and get back to work selling my Roadkill Alphabet book.

Donna Gambale said...

Thanks for making me laugh during my lunch break! You guys are just as hilarious and entertaining on video as you are in person.

ChristaCarol said...

Bwahahaha! You two are adorable. The snake confused me until the credits and I nearly spewed water out my nose! Loved the music.

storyqueen said...

Okay, Jo, I KNOW that was my manuscript on the floor in the elevator!! (The reason I know it is because that kind of thing happens to me All The Time!!) I always thought I was just clumsy, but now I know that the pages are just plain slippery!!

Well done!

Can't wait for your next installment (and I hope no books were harmed in the fight scene....)

Shelley

Claire Dawn said...

Doogie Howser theme!!! How much do I love you guys right now??? So off to youtube all my fave 80's shows!

Livia said...

Nice move with the chair there...

Ann Marie Wraight said...

ER... I don't get why everyone was laughing...I was TERRIFIED! I mean that scary looking snake was everywhere...and you stopped at the most frightening part...what happened when the snake and flamingo met....??

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS - LOVED IT!!

Mel Skinner said...

Thanks for the laugh.

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

And...I almost spit Pepsi all over my laptop. You need to warn people not to drink beverages as they watch this! Hundreds of laptop screens are possibly getting ruined.

Great video you guys. Not very many things make me almost do spit takes, but this DEFINITELY did. :)

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

OMG the epic-ness of this is off the charts. Lux Aeterna for the win!!! Love the soundtrack. I seriously hope this isn't the last video from you two, I think we need a whole series:-)

WhisperingWriter said...

This was hilarious. My kids are all, "What are those ladies doing?"

And now I have a compulsion to watch Doogie Howser.

Lynne Kelly Hoenig said...

Wow, who knew agenting was so violent?

Brilliant work!

Sarah said...

EPIC.

Whoever suggested you do a series broke into my brain. You guys should do webisodes!

Patrick said...

I loved the video, but I have to be honest- the advanced copy of The Duff was the real wow factor for me, haha. Keep up the good work!

Judith Engracia said...

The best documentary I've ever seen!!

Suzette Saxton said...

Love it!

brian_ohio said...

Funny. Nice to see that Joanna does where some color... not following the NYC black/white/gray dress code.

I noticed, when they were hugging, that Suzie had her fingers crossed. Hm.

Lynne Kelly Hoenig said...

Hey, I just noticed the picture of Monica & me in our Snuggies on Jo's bulletin board! It's like my own brush with greatness!

M. Gray said...

That was awesome! Loved it!

writermomof5 said...

I loved it. Thanks for sharing!

readingkidsbooks said...

Ya gotta love the book bus...too much fun!

Just Your Typical Book Blog said...

LOL That was great!

Madscientist254 said...

Realize I'm a little late to respond to this video, but never the less wanted to say thanks for adding some personality to the agent hunt. In short, it helps narrow my search greatly, in your favor I might add. Also I'd like to add to what another respondent suggested and that you all should do more of these "webisodes."

Maggie said...

haha this is wonderful!

Amanda said...

So funny! You two are great!

Marta Szemik said...

I love it. You two are so funny. Hehehe

Jude Hassan said...

This made my day. Love it.

Jude Hassan said...

made my day. love this.

Rebecca said...

LOL! Thanks for lightening up the process for me; you guys are awesome!

CJ Black said...

Absolutely loved it! Hilarious!

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
