Book Trailers

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

My friend Janet Koch made two book trailers for me. The first was for DEAD IN RED. and after that, she made one for BOOKMARKED FOR DEATH.

Several of the Chicks' friends have made their own movies on their iMacs with stellar results.  So, our own Jennifer thought she'd like to try it, too, and she made one for her own (Ellery Adams) A KILLER PLOT.

Jennifer enjoyed making her own book trailer so much, she offered to work with me on one, too, for CHAPTER & HEARSE. So, I picked out the pictures and wrote a rudimentary script.  Jennifer rewrote the script and did all the rest of the work.  I absolutely loved the results (and so did my editor)!

Not content with just that, Jennifer made a book trailer for Leann's THE CAT, THE PROFESSOR AND THE POISON. If she hadn't gone on vacation last week, we might not have been able to stop her from making 874 more trailers.

Anyway, the Chicks are so proud of Jennifer's efforts, we've dedicated a page here on our blog to them. And you can bet when we have new book trailers, we'll be adding them, too. (Just check the link up on the left hand side that says "Our Killer Book Trailers.")

And, of course, you didn't think I'd end this without you seeing the Chapter & Hearse book trailer. (BTW, the book is released on August 3rd.)
