The book trailer for Chantress is making its debut! To see the original reveal and win a copy of the finished book from Simon & Schuster, please check out the wonderful blog Icey Books.

I’m going to post the trailer here, too:

I’m so happy to be able to share it with you! David and I put it together, and we’re really delighted with how it turned out.

I’m looking forward to sharing some tips and tricks for trailer-making in later posts. But for now, I’ll just share this secret: Making a trailer can be a bit like throwing a party. If you’re lucky, you have all kinds of wonderful people bringing good things to the table.

I’m grateful to all the people whose talents contributed in one way or another to mine: Jeannette Faith, Sean Sheerwood, Leigh Diprose, Soarer, Jack Francis, Ali Smith, and Michael McCartney — and of course David, my tech-genius husband!

Tomorrow: a fun behind-the-scenes story about making the trailer…
