Coffee Morning Trailers
A selection of teas available -- The Pu'er is particularly good -- and fresh coffee in the pot. Do try the gluten-free chocolate brownies - a friend makes them and they are exquisite.
I'm about to embark on a short, whistle-stop tour of blogs to promote 'An Ungodly Child'. Something that has been mentioned to me are podcasts and book trailers. Every book trailer I've seen, it seems to me, is very, very similar -- music, stills fading into each other with text (usually the novel's hook) spliced in between. Does anyone else find these a bit samey? How about live action ones?
Personally, I use a glove puppet, but generally I only get a half-dozen views. Does anyone else have success with something different?
What would you want to see in a book trailer? How about podcasts?
