Awesome book trailer alert

My awesome friend anywherebeyond has made an amazing book trailer for my equally awesome friend and critique partner deva_fagan. I am surrounded by so much awesome-ness I feel quite humbled. So I will stop talking and suggest you watch the trailer for yourself:

Fortune's Folly Book Trailer

If you want to get to read FORTUNE'S FOLLY a little earlier than the rest of us, head on over to Deva's journal where you can win an advance copy!

And I believe Saundra (anywherebeyond) is going to be doing a giveaway of her fabulously spooky book SHADOWED SUMMER very soon, so keep an eye on her blog, too! 'Cause we all like ghosts around here, right?

You're a good friend to help promote these -- I'm not entering any contests right now because I'm hoping to get many of these books at ALA (and it doesn't seem fair to go after them until I know what I can and cannot get)...but it's exciting!

I am envious of you getting ARCs at ALA--hope you find lots you want! :)

Thanks for promoting the trailer and the contest both! I really appreciate it.

And I am still amazed at what Saundra is capable of...

I'm amazed, too!! (And looking ahead to whenever I might be wanting to create a book trailer.) If you don't mind my asking, did you/she do a custom shoot for this? Where did the video footage come from? I ask because I know (from my day job) that creating even short videos can be costly. Would love more details on how Saundra did this!!

That's one of the coolest things: it's actually all video and music that she found available for use under a Creative Commons license. She found it, edited it and put it together with the text and everything. The details are in the notes on the video if you are interested. Glad you like it!

Creative Commons, Copyleft and Open Source, my friend. The renegade digital spirit is alive and well on the Internet!
