  1. July 6th-
    Congrats to my new twitterbug friends: Stacie, Heather, Sara and Anne!

    Thanks for playing! :)


  2. Okay, so I'm a Twitbug, FB fan and newsletter follower, which leaves the book trailer.

    Liked it. It's short and to the point, with just enough intrigue to want to know more. The images are beautiful and the cover just pops! Now the music was all right; I would have preferred something a bit slower. It would have been a better match with the images, methinks. But then, I'm a bit on the heavy side, literally and figuratively, though my weight fluctuates like Zori's (which is hilarious, btw).

    I'm a Massive Attack fan, so I thought "Angel," "Dissolved Girl," or "Black Milk" would have worked as potential soundtracks. But overall, I like the trailer. It's good stuff.

    Btw, freakin' Idris Elba be HOT LIKE FIRE! He looks like a Greyson. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you ingrain a character into your reader's mind.

  3. Hey, Amaya! You've been entered in Saturday's contest! Thanks for the feedback on my book trailer! I just discovered Massive Attack with their Teardrop song plays at the beginning of House, I've listened to other tracks through Pandora, but don't know them well enough to comment on your picks. I'm going to check them out though on Youtube!

    My husband actually creates the music for all of my trailers. I'm so lucky he enjoys the process and delivers with music I can work with! ;-)

    I'm with you Mr. Elba is D-E-LICIOUS! Totally the way I picture Greyson to be! So glad I ingrained the character in your mind!

    Always a pleasure to hear from you,
