Secrets of the Magic Ring - new book trailer

Bill Buckley, of the Mooresville Public Library in Mooresville, Indiana, emailed me recently to let me know that he produced a book trailer for my new book, Secrets of the Magic Ring. I've never met Mr. Buckley, but this is the third time he's done a trailer for one of my books, and I'm enormously honored.

Mr. Buckley's video is terrific. I'm posting it below, along with the other trailer done by illustrator Vincent Desjardins. I love seeing two different people's vision for the story.

Very nice Karen! I love a good Fairy Tale! Also wanted to let you know that I'm in the middle of getting an audiobook with ACX! Thank you for mentioning them! ; )

Hi Sheri! Thanks for coming by. I'm interested in hearing about your experience creating an audiobook with ACX. When you're done, if you're interested in sharing on my blog (or linking to a post on your blog), just let me know!

Thanks: kmcquestion @ wi.rr.com

ACX -- I'd nver heard of it, but now I looked it up. Interesting.

I think it's definitely worth looking into, Jon. I'm curious to hear Sheri's experience.

Christina - xristya@rock.com - Yes, it's interesting how different people bring in different images (and who knows what images are in all the minds of all the readers!). Just wait until they make movies of your books, and those images may be entirely different from what you imagined! Glad you got your Road Trip book completed (always satisfying to finish something)! Have you ever read the children's books of Elizabeth Levy? I got a copy of Pirate and Parrots to review, and it's good (with an illustrator that you may also like). It strikes me that when I was young and reading books I never thought about the morals involved, but looking back, besides imagination and creativity, which I prized in books, I always liked the ones with truths and morals to teach me (like yours)!

Christina - Just reading the other comments, I see you're doing an audiobook - do you plan to do voice-overs in the future (I hear they pay well)? Also, have you ever been a Book Brahmin on Shelf Awareness (they ask anyone to nominate authors to answer a set of questions about books). I just saw Christopher Herz and his new book Pharmacology, which I reviewed at www.bookrroomreviews.com, as the Book Brahmin today, and thought that you should be one also!

Hi Christina! I just read your recent review on Book Room Reviews and it made me want to read Pharmacology.

Actually, I'm not doing the reading for the audio books. It might be fun, but I don't really have the voice for it.

I just put the book PIRATES AND PARROTS on my list, and I'll check out Book Brahmin too. Thanks for the tips!
