>You Say ‘Tomato,’ I Say ‘Tomahto’…("It’s TOMAHTO, Dammit!!!")

>Check out this TOTALLY COOL radio spot for Eric Jerome Dickey’s book, Genevieve

…and his new book, Chasing Destiny.

Ever since Genevieve came out, people have had trouble pronouncing the title. It’s pronounced the French way, and he’s constantly correcting people about it, which is a hoot.

Look at him smiling.

That’s because he’s probably saying “it’s Zhawn-vee-EHV!!!”

(In the interest of full disclosure, I’m the one who suggested to him that her name have the French pronunciation, so I should be the one taking the heat on it, but somehow I’ve managed to escape.) It’s an excellent book, no matter how you say it.

He’s also talking about Chasing Destiny in the radio spot, which is killa-dilla. I cannot say that enough.

Listen to the commercial. It’s an absolute riot!!!
