I'm so excited about this trailer. The original music is by
Mike Schmid, a very talented musician, who is also the keyboardist for Miley Cyrus. He's played with Sheryl Crow and the Jonas Brothers as well, among many other artists. He read the novel and was inspired to write this song, which he then allowed me to use for the trailer. If you go to Mike's website, his music starts playing, and you'll hear how talented he is!
The trailer only has a short piece of the song, but the entire song is on iTunes. It's called, of course, "Magic." The complete lyrics are posted on Delaney's website.
My friends Judy and Dave put the trailer together for me, with Judy creating the great illustrations, some of which I also plan to put on Delaney's website. I feel very lucky to have benefited from the talents of these these generous and gifted people. They definitely qualify as Real World F.G.s.
Okay, so I'm not sure this is technically "Book News," BUT, since the Facebook Page will contain news about the book, as well as the usual Facebook banter, I feel it qualifies. ALSO, it took me a while to get it up, so it feels like a milestone to be celebrated. (Part of the delay was just my usual hesitation about pressing the commitment button for anything that might not be perfect YET -- like anything EVER is.)
Anyway, this (above) is my profile photo on the page, which is also the author photo on my book, taken by my talented photographer friend, M.F. Schwartz.

As I plan to say elsewhere on the site, in the Contact Me section (when I have time to get it up there):
Please visit me at the page and:
Ask a question
Recommend a book for me to read or movie to see
Suggest a fun link
Leave an inspirational quote (I love those, as you may know if you follow me on Twitter).
I think the Facebook page is going to be an easier way for me to interact with people, because it's easier to see the whole thread of a conversation...So, come by and help me try this theory out.
Okay, it's not so different (in fact, see if you can figure out what's changed), but it's "book news" and worth a post, I think!
Give me a few days (weeks?) to find all the other places I've posted it, to update it. :)
