I know most people make book trailers to promote their books pre-release, but I never really got around to it. Recently, though, I decided I'd have a crack at it!
My biggest problem was locating decent music for it - but you know what's awesome? Having friends who are musicians!
Alberto Albis and Erin Alden are both supremely talented in their own right. Alberto is in an AMAZING band, and produces music for other artists, and Erin is a singer/songwriter/all round kickass chick! Having been friends for a long time, it was only natural that they teamed up to create Slow Motion Riot. After hearing their collaborations, I fell even more in love with these two musical geniuses, and was given permission to use one of their songs, Bullet Train, for my book trailer! *cue screams and happy dances* :D
So, here is my first ever book trailer for my first ever book - made with a little help from my friends ;)
Now - as Slow Motion Riot have been so kind as to let me use one of their tracks, I would love it if you'd show your appreciation by liking their respective Facebook pages, and if you want to hear more from them, you can find it here.
Finally, I know I have been a little MIA recently. I will be back very soon with a proper update about that, but for now, enjoy the video and the music - and feel free to show it some love on YouTube!
