Brian Benson (bknight47) | 1012 comments Great trailer, sounds good...B


message 5: by Susan (new)

Susan Thanks, Brian. Could I persuade you to read the book and post a review on amazon? I'd be happy to send you a PDF version or gift you the kindle version. :)


message 6: by Susan (new)

Susan Thanks Brian. Could I persuade you to read the book and post a review on amazon? I'd be happy to send you a PDF of the book, or gift you a Kindle version. I see that you've read the "dragon tattoo girl" books. If you liked them, I think you might like Natalie's Revenge. :)


message 7: by Brian (new)

Brian Benson (bknight47) | 1012 comments Sure, that would be great. I will send you a free e-book of mine too. It will just have to wait in line I have like 3-4 others to read first. I would also be happy to post a review on Amazon. Let me know...

message 12: by Evren (last edited Oct 26, 2012 10:14AM) (new)

Evren | 20 comments Yes some of them are like cartoon movies. :) However sometimes the trailer goes beyond the book and the author forgets to tell what is really interesting in his/her book.

message 16: by Razmatus (new)

Razmatus | 241 comments I would make a trailer if only ppl who promised to draw pics for me to use in such a trailer werent irresponsible sh*ts who couldnt keep their promise... and unfortunately I cant draw well... neither do I want to use just some pics downloaded from internet

and I dont just wanna go for a clipart/text effects thing

my "dream" was for an illustrator to draw some pics according to my descriptions, and THEN use that sequence + text effects... but I guess thats still a long way off for as long as ppl will have better things to do which is almost always when it comes to drawing for me, yay :/


message 17: by Evren (new)

Evren | 20 comments Razmatus, I have a suggestion for you but if you only like some amateur drawings. I did my own drawings and if you like them I can suggest you my own way which you can easily apply by yourself. See the drawings my Amazon page and tell me your idea. I have no art school education and I don't think that you need any for simple drawings. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009LJGOWY


message 18: by Charity (new)

Charity Bradford (CharityBradford) | 4 comments I've been there too. I had one really talented artist say they would help me create an animated trailer like you see for Halo and other video games. I waited a year and they finally said it was harder than they thought (read more time consuming).

Luckily my book is scifi and most observatories will let you use telescope pictures for free. I did purchase a few common use photos from online sites and then I tweaked them a bit in photoshop. It isn't too hard, but since I'm not great at it, it takes a long time. Finally, if you go to deviant art you might find an artist willing to let you use what they've already created.

Good luck!

message 19: by Heidi (new)

Heidi Angell (HeidiAngell) | 211 comments Razmatus, as Charity said, you might find an artist on Deviantart to let you use what they have already done, but you might also find someone willing to work on commission as well. The key is being able to pay for it first. I have this great idea for a children's book, but can't find an artist who would do the work for a % of sales. How did authors ever get suckered into a deal that no other profession (not even artists) are willing to accept?! ;) Good thing I love what I do!! Best of luck with your project Razmatus!


message 20: by Razmatus (new)

Razmatus | 241 comments the thing is I dont have a way to pay for the pics... I had a really talented one, but basically she didnt give a **** long-term

and I know she could spawn those pics pretty fast if she wanted and in high quality, cos she made the "test" ones and they looked great

so yea there's that problem... and then, even if they gave me their word, it got broken way too easily

and erm, I didnt say, simple drawings... the ones I had in mind required a good one like the dudette I mentioned... pics telling a bit of a story, like short overlook of the "storyline"... my book is a book of poems, and the concept is pretty loose, making a kind of confused storyline, the kind of "diary of a deranged mind", shattered, confused... but it is only the underlying layer behind the poems, not a really full-fleshed storyline like in novels... just something interesting tying the poems kinda together

and I wanted to make an epic trailer using good hand-drawn pics... so... well... it might take time but I hope I find someone eager and willing enough to draw at least a couple pics for me without a big promise of profit that I cant offer right now :/

Razmatus | 241 comments I guess I could make a video with text and dramatic stickmen lol


message 23: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (LYLevand) I had a vision of an epic trailer for my most recent project, but I don't think it's going to happen. Maybe we should both do dramatic stickmen! That sounds like fun, actually, lol.

“If Waiting to Exhale and Sex and the City procreated, the healthy, bouncing baby would read like Single Girl Summer. You’ll live vicariously through Button, Dawn, and Meghan. Even if you’ve never set foot in Chicago, after reading this, you’ll feel like a Chi-town native.” -Lana Pipkins, thesavvysistah.com

“Single Girl Summer…is a breezy, enjoyable romp that will make you long for hot days and balmy nights in [Chicago].” -Kyra Kyles, Chicago Tribune RedEye

“Each character possesses her own plight that doesn’t offset any other character, but compliments it.” -Chivone Smith, Chicago Defender

“All three [characters] carry interesting stories and, my gosh, do they come with fun drama and baggage.” -LaToya Cross, N’Digo

“Congratulations on Single Girl Summer. A most enjoyable read.” -Nikki Giovanni, Author and Poet

Jeff Horton | 6 comments Cybersp@ce by Jeff W. Horton

Here is the trailer for the new techno-thriller, CYBERSP@CE, scheduled for release on January 1, 2013.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7W-UKh...

A devastating cyber attack leaves 100,000 people in the United States dead, and evidence points to the Chinese, setting the world on the inevitable march towards nuclear war. Nick Reynolds with US Cyber Command soon learns that former KGB agent Nikolai Chervanko, who has long dreamt of rebuilding his beloved Soviet Union, could be behind the massacre, with something even bigger planned. Lacking evidence linking Chervanko, however, outrage over the attack soon forces the United States to declare war on China. With no means to stop another destructive cyber attack and prevent a nuclear conflict, Nick finds help from an unlikely source—Area 51.
