Seattle’s Maria Semple on how not to sell your book

If you’re one of a long line of people waiting for your library copy of Maria Semple’s hilarious new novel “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” which sends up Seattle’s new rich like nothing else, console yourself while you wait by viewing this “book trailer” (for the uninitiated, a “book trailer,” like a movie trailer, is a short advertisement for an upcoming book).

In this video you’ll find several local literary luminaries, including Elliott Bay Book Co.’s Rick Simonson and Karen Maeda Allman, the University Book Store’s Stesha Brandon and best-selling author Garth Stein. Actor Tom Skerritt makes an appearance, as does author and “Jeopardy” champ Ken Jennings.

If you’re thinking of plunking down your hard-earned dollars for the book, here’s the Seattle Times review.

(Wednesday update: The New York Times just published an interview with Semple, in which she says she really, truly loves Seattle).
