I can't think of a better title for this post, really. Just a few minutes ago, I was reading the Publisher's Lunch weekly deal report e-mail, and came across this listing under Pop Culture.
Recent winner of the YouTube Video Award for Best Series based on viewer voting AskANinja.com creators Douglas Sarine and Kent Nichols's THE NINJA HANDBOOK: A Guide for Non-Ninjas To Become More Ninja-like, claiming to be the first "video podcast to book" deal, to Julian Pavia at Crown, for six figures, at auction, by Joe Veltre of Artists Literary Group (NA). Ask a Ninja is represented by UTA and manager John Elliott at Mosiac Media.
Six figures? For a silly and not-quite-entertaining YouTube video concept? Good lord.
