I'd never done a trailer before and, let me tell you, creating it was both frustrating and fun. I can laugh now when I think about how many times my computer locked up, just as I was getting close to the end. Of course, I had to reboot and start over again. Now, in a couple of hours, I'll post the video on You Tube. Fingers crossed that it all goes well.
The whole process of creating the movie, revising, editing and then letting it go reminds me of how I felt when I sent my first book out to the publisher. Excitement mixed with apprehension! Will he like it? Will people want to read it? Will they recommend it to their friends? So many emotions.
Two weeks ago, I sent Unfinished Business, the sequel to Mixed Messages, to my publisher and, once again, I'm feeling those same feelings and thinking those same thoughts. My second "baby" just got on the bus to go to kindergarten!
No matter how hard I work to write and promote a novel or to create a video, it all boils down to this. "It takes a village to raise a child" and it takes the support of friends and family members to promote a book - or a video. In other words, I can't do it without you.
I'll attach the You Tube link to my blog after I've "completed" the project. I hope you'll share it on Facebook, tweet it and forward it via email to your friends and family.
Here's a preview of coming attractions. I hope you enjoy the show!
