Casting call!

Thanks to all of you who commented on the rough draft of this book trailer. With help, I figured out how to adjust my titles. Hopefully this new version is an improvement!

The pictorial post of my characters is here.

And thanks for joining our casting call this week! The linky should be below, but if it isn't and you want to join us, sign up at Carrie Butler's blog for this weeklong, one-post hop. Carrie, Lisa Regan and I will randomly choose one lucky winner for a three-person, three-chapter critique - that's three pairs of eyes for the price of...well, nothing. :)

Hi! As I was watching your book trailer, I was like, "Hey, I've seen this plot before..." Then I remembered reading your query on AQCon! Anyway, nice work! I'm excited to see where this goes, and wish you the best of luck in the querying process! Great trailer! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Yay! It's finally here. This was such a great idea, Melodie! Thank you for allowing me to co-host with you guys. :D

Very nice trailer, Melodie, and thanks for running this. I'm here via Carrie and Lisa.

That was so cool! Great job. Can you tell me which program you used? I am extremely technologically challenged. I can see all kinds of possibilities with it for school. Thanks!

I wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS on your full request from Kate Schafer Testerman!! Wow! I'm jumping with joy for you!

Melodie said...

Dan: I used Windows Movie Maker - for Mac, try iMovie. And you're right, this would work very well if you'd like middle schoolers to make book trailers. I've done that w/ them and they LOVE it.

Hi Jessica, Dan and Carrie! *waves* Congrats, Jessica on snagging Lucy Carson for your agent!

And Cassie - Thanks! *squee* I also got a request from a contest from an agent over at Miss Snark's blog. My nails are nubs already...

I love your book trailer. Very nicely done. Then again, since Deana Barnhart's GUTGAA blogfest last July, I've been in love with your story.

And I hope I can do the CC blogfest but I fear I don't have the time.

Thanks all for stopping by. I've visited most blogs on the hop - if I've missed you, you're on my list. Sounds like everyone is having a good time!!
