You thought "Dead Men tell no tales"...Well, not anymore! Now you can plan your epitaph for a Video Tombstone. So...what kinds of things do you think we might hear from video tombstones...and will most of it be truth or lies?

SAN MATEO, Calif. - Californer -- "Video tombstones will have a tremendous impact on many aspects of society," according to Robert Barrows, the inventor of a video tombstone called the "Video Enhanced Gravemarker" (U.S. Patent #7,089,495).

1) Video tombstones will change the way we look at life and death.

2) Video tombstones will change the way that history is told.

3) Video tombstones will make cemeteries fascinating places to visit.

4) Video tombstones will also create two new industries:
A) Manufacturing video tombstones
B) Producing videos for use in video tombstones

5) Video tombstones will also create some major new revenue opportunities for many sectors of the funerary industry including monument builders, funeral homes, cemeteries and perpetual care fund providers.

6) Plus, video tombstones will also create a whole new genre of storytelling, perfect for movies, books and TV because the video tombstone is an ideal storytelling device for all kinds of stories.

Along these lines, Barrows has also written a novel based on stories told through video tombstones. The book is called "Cemetery of Lies." "Cemetery of Lies" is a collection of intimate secret confessions, as told from beyond the grave, through video tombstones.

"The stories are about life and love, sex and romance, good and evil, success and money, truth and lies and Heaven and Hell, says Barrows. And...Cemetery of Lies is an easy read for a mass audience and the writing is sexy, provocative and humorous, too."
