Did you know book trailers are a thing? Well, they are!
My publisher encouraged me to create one so I fired up my Windows Movie Maker, which I didn’t even know I had on this PC, and spent a week obsessing about every little detail. I am starting to suspect I’m actually a frustrated film producer at heart. I really hope to do a live-action one someday soon, with real actors and cats.
Anyway, here is my first crack at it. Doesn’t have the release date yet, of course, because I don’t know when that is, yet.
December 1, 2017 – I went ahead and did it!
After giving the other agents and publishing houses [what I thought was] a reasonable amount of time to make any pending counter-offers, I went ahead and signed on yesterday with Solstice Publishing to publish Seven Turns. They’re a small press but I like their business model and I especially like that they are willing to take a chance on genre-benders like me. Naturally, I’m kind of partial to the name of the company, as well, and think K.C. Sprayberry, the editor who contacted me, looks like a really cool person in her photo (who wouldn’t be cool, with a name like that?) Those are the the right criteria to weigh when making an important business decision, right?
I’m still at the point where I’m a little numb and not quite sure what to think . . . scratch that, I mean: not quite sure I even remember how to think. There’s still a lot of work to be done before I get the release date everyone is asking me about. I’m getting some input into the cover design right now and that’s kind of fun!
Oh, yes, I also finished NaNoWriMo yesterday, with 128 words to spare! Big day all around! I am exhausted. I will blog more when I can put more than two coherent thoughts together.
