Super Secret Project Revealed

After all my hype about a super secret project, it's finally done. Yeah, it's a trailer for The Many Adventures of Courtesy and Patience (the manuscript on submission). My husband and I did it together and it was actually a fun project. My eye for beauty and his mad computer tech skills made for a great bonding activity. I highly recommend it over trying to move furniture together, you know, what with all the fighting that occurs in that situation.
Anywho... watch it. See what you think. Leave me the think.

  3. Your query has come to life. I'm surprised you don't mention the alchemy.

    It's a super, super secret project!

    I didn't know we needed to have book trailers before we had books to sell.

  12. For some reason, I can't get sound. I'll try back later. I love the black and white, though.

  13. This is amazing! Love it!

    By the way, I came upon your blog in a roundabout way (reading some other writing blogs), but I am also in Northern Arizona. Small world!

  14. The secret project was well worth waiting for! Love it!!

    The black and white images & the music blend really well - I was smiling after just a couple of notes. Very nicely done :)

  16. That's fantastic. I love the vintage effects with the black and white pictures and scratchy, grainy film.

  17. I like it Jackee! The black and white sets the tone perfectly... and the music, too. The text kept me wanting to read more. Great job to you and your man!

  19. This is better than some of the professional trailers I've seen. Book trailers can so easier cross over into corny, but yours was fun! - and completely different. My only suggestion is that some of the timing seemed a little off. Like some of the photos were on for two long, and the text not up long enough, so I got a little lost at one point (those interruptions from kids didn't help)

    Do you mind sharing just how long it took you guys to cook this thing up? I'm guessing 20 hours at minimum.

  21. I agree with previous commenters about loving the black and white and the music. Mostly, I loved getting to peek inside your novel. Thanks!

  22. I love it! I couldn't read the last part though but that's probably because I had it on tiny size. Very cool.

  23. What a great trailer! Those vintage photos really bring it to life. Now I hope one of those agents takes it on and gets it published!

  24. You both did a terrific job. Makes me want to read the book. I really like the lively music, too! :)

  25. That was amazing! And an incredibly unique and clever story-line. All the best on your agent hunt. Have you tried Natalie Ficsher? I think she takes MG, you'd have to double check, but I know she likes historical elements.

  26. Love this Jackee. The music is awesome. Better than mine.

    Super congrats to that hubby of yours. He sounds awesome. I have one of those too. Though he fancies himself a critiquer of my writing, which can be a little annoying at times. *grin*

    Great to visit you again. I see everything is going great. *hugs*
