Director Bill Thoma and I first conceived of a book trailer for my novel Artemis Rising in late August 2009. It’s been a wild ride and an amazing journey since then. We were privileged in our cast and crew on this project, and the collective talent of this group still surprises me. I’m pleased to share the fruits of our labor at long last:
Mary Nelson — Arethusa
Tyler Nordby — Tristan
Montetré — Diogo
Lyndsey Shaw — Senhorita Jacinta
Kyle Jorgenson — Padre Salvador
Brian Neubauer — director of photography
Cheri Lasota — art direction, script supervisor, producer
Lyndsey Shaw — art direction, makeup, costumes, production assistant
Beth Furumasu — still photography
Kyle Jorgenson — sound
Adam Halverson — crane operator
Dan Kurtz — grip
Congratulations on your novel and your launch. Maybe I’m not adept enough with websites, but I didn’t see a place to order the book. My daughter and I met you at the WWC in Portland and she would like to write YA. This would make a fun gift for her. Should I just order it off of Barnes and Noble?
My agent has submitted my ms to 13 publishers. Unfortunately, 8 of them are full of women’s fiction for the next two years, or they have closed their fiction depts. Boo hoo. I’m not worried though, something will work out.
Best to you,
Cheryl Lynn Colwell
So good to hear from you. Can you believe Artemis Rising isn’t pubbed as yet? I’m weighing a couple of options at the moment, but when I was approached by the director to do a book trailer, I jumped at the chance. It marries my two favorite things in the world–fiction and film. How could I say no?
But I will be sure to let you know when the book becomes available.
That’s awesome that your agent is getting your book out there. Yes, you’ll make it! Keep the faith. =)
Hi Cheri, I rewatched trailer and turned up the sound some more-like you would find in a movie house, and the words were much clearer. So disregard my earlier commet,I just had to get the sound at the right volume. Hope you are getting great comments from everyone. This is a new way for writers with forward thinking to promote their books.
