Of Book Trailers and Incredibly Talented Bloggers
I am constantly amazed at the level of enthusiasm that exists in the review blogosphere. I can’t think of a place where there is a more concentrated pool of people unwaveringly passionate in their love for a good book, but the talent that exists there is also awe-inspiring. Among the bloggers I’ve become friendly with are gifted writers, photographers, reviewers, graphic designers, and artists.
At the top of this list is Vania of Reverie Book Reviews.
Vania has become a friend and is also one of the most talented artists and photographers I know. She attends college in Georgia and, as if that weren’t enough, spends every waking moment of her free time reading and reviewing books for her blog, taking awesome pictures, and doing any number of favors for pretty much anyone who asks.
A couple of months ago, Vania approached me about filming (another of V’s talents!) a live-action book trailer for Prophecy. Against my protestations, she has since casted the video, trolled thrift stores for clothing that she has tailored to fit the period of my book, and is now in the process of shooting.
Yesterday, Vania sent me a few still from the first shoot. After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I knew I had to share them. Waiting is not an option.
And patience has never been one of my virtues.
I hope you enjoy this sneak peak as much as I did (um, minus the petting and cooing I’m doing… cuz I am weird like that)…
