I put together a little trailer for Strife. I had a lot of fun doing it. It’s funny — book trailers are one of those things I told myself I’d probably never bother with but I really enjoyed working on this. I joked with my husband that instead of playing Warcraft for a day or two, I played with iMovie instead. 🙂
Thirteen more days!
A few other awesome things have happened in the last couple of days, and I am just feeling so lucky to have such supportive, wonderful readers. Two of my beta readers (who are a lovely group of people, seriously) created a GoodReads group for my books called Hidden No More to discuss, as they put it, “anything Colleen Vanderlinden.” If you’re on GoodReads, I hope you’ll check it out. There are a few fun discussions up already, including speculation about what the final book in the series will be like and the ever-important Team Brennan or Team Nain debate. Thanks for setting that up, Jennifer and Susan!
Susan and Jennifer have also been working hard on ways to get my introverted self out there a bit. They’re arranging a Facebook event for 6/3, which is Strife’s release date, and they’ve started organizing a street team to help promote my books. I can honestly say that neither of these things would have happened if left up to me. I suck at self-promotion and never in a million years would have had the gall to start a street team of my own, so I’m just really lucky that I have awesome readers who care enough to do stuff like this for me. Words can’t even express what that means to me.
As far as writing goes, I’ve started working on both the fifth Hidden book and the next Hidden novella. The Forever Night ebook will be available here on my blog on Friday — so be sure to stop by and download it and tell me what you think!
Finally, my paper proofs of Strife arrived yesterday. I spent some time ogling them.
Thanks for reading. Have a great day, all!
