I knew I could count on a teen to create a phenomenal book trailer, and wow was I right! Jacqueline Xerri’s winning entry blew me away the first time I watched it – and it still does every time. There’s something so compelling about seeing your characters portrayed on camera, and I really feel like I’ve “gone Hollywood.” Although I maintain that books are the most powerful medium, Jackie’s trailer conveys so much so very concisely. It’s incredibly well-done! Wait until you see it. You’ll understand what I mean.
Stay tuned for the official trailer reveal on August 22! If you’d like to be a part of the reveal, please sign up here: http://us6.campaign-archive2.com/?u=9cd4986d2847103124b6e73ed&id=01a4c64571
No blog required! I SO appreciate the help you guys are giving to create a buzz for MELT!!!! One thing I’ve learned over the years is that the greatest support for a book comes from readers. Thanks for the past help…and in advance for the future. (And write to me any time. I write back!)
Thanks also for all the hard work that went into these trailers. An amazing teen named Kierra created the runner-up entry. Kierra, I am so grateful for the work you clearly put into your trailer – and the creativity that burst forth! I’m so glad my book inspired you, and I know you’ll go on to create many more beautiful things!
Jackie is already ensconced in her video career, and you can view some of her other work at: vimeo.com/jackiexerri. I can’t believe how accomplished she is, at such an early age.
Stay tuned on the 22nd to see the brilliant creation that Jackie produced. I’m so excited! It’s my big premiere. Even better, I don’t have to be ready for any close-up. My characters, and Jackie, have done all the heavy lifting.
Let me know what you think!
