I happily and excitedly share this news for several reasons:
- The author of the book, Samantha Sotto, also author of the blog The Slight Detour is Filipina, and someone I actually know! (How cool is that, knowing a soon-to-be famous best selling author! 🙂 I also do like her name. 😉 heehee!)
- The excerpts that I’ve read of the book (from her blog) are very interesting and I genuinely am curious about the plot. See the praise for Before Ever After has received by Best Selling Authors.
- The producer of the book’s trailer is also a very dear friend, who happens to be our favorite video producer at my company, your Brand Story.
- The idea of a book trailer: to be honest, I had never encountered that until now (although looking through You Tube, it appears that lots of books have done it, I’ve just never seen it before). I think it’s a wonderful idea, taking a static medium and promoting it so dynamically, using popular social networks. It also literally, brings the story to life. In a way you can imagine what the movie would look like!
The book will be released by August 2, but you can already pre-order your copy online. I already did!
Congratulations again to Sam! We’re so excited for you! 🙂
