Drumroll, If You Please

Sorry I went missing yesterday. Let's just say it had to do with an insane track meet. More on my angst later...

Ta da! I've created my very own, incredibly dasaloff (if I do say so myself) book trailer!

Yay! Turn up the music!

I've retyped the poem here:

Apparently with no surprise

Apparently with no surprise
To any happy Flower
The Frost beheads it at its play—
In accidental power—
The blonde Assassin passes on—
The Sun proceeds unmoved
To measure off another Day
For an Approving God.

-Emily Dickinson

Now, you're probably thinking "What the heck?" Trust me on this one. If this book is ever published someday in the way distant future, you will understand. And yes, I understand that "blonde Assassin" isn't literally a killer blonde; a picture of the killer blonde from my book just happened to fit at that point in the montage. It doesn't help that she's smiling.

I hope you liked it!

Well, I certainly liked it! I love the music and anything with Emily Dickinson is FANTASTIC in my book! I'm interested!

I think you deserve an A+ for that trailer. I see what you mean about some of the characters not being exactly what you pictured, but you did a pretty good job of finding close matches. The music and the poem work really well together too. Plus, I enjoy that Dickinson poem so that earns you extra brownie points.

...let's pretend I DIDN'T just notice that you have this and other excerpts on the blog...embarrassing! :)

BUT-I loved the trailer!! It feels ominous and I'm scared for them!!AHH!!
-I feel u with the picture problem too! I'm trying to do a trailer now, and u can never really find the perfect pic-there's always something in them that is wrong for what u need. I wish there was a way to enter criteria into a program that could customize pics.
Ur Emily Dickinson is awesome too! She's my fav poet-I was inspired by one of her poems actually in a of the scene I have posted right now!
And- I'm gonna go check out ur other excerpts! Just give me a shout whenever u think ur ready for a reader!!
