The Next Testament, book trailer

Here’s the trailer for my latest novel, The Next Testament, available exclusively on Amazon Kindle and trade paperback from Amazon. Search in the Kindle store by “Daniel Putkowski, The Next Testament,” to find it easily.

This is a dystopian, alternative near future story set in a story world populated by characters you’ll never forget.

Here’s the jacket copy:

When faith becomes a crime, a small mining town demands salvation from an unlikely prophet. After a devastating second civil war, the Reunited States of America has only one religion, the Common Faith, and Compliance Specialist Zoe Whelan has been on a roll, capturing hold-out Christians who refuse to give up their beliefs. While recovering after a near-death experience, she discovers former priest John Carroll is writing the Next Testament, a revelation from God that threatens to reignite conflict. Zoe’s on the hunt again, in a battle for her life against corrupt Common Faith officials and a dangerous girl-gang known as the Mollies. As she closes in on Father Carroll, Zoe has a revelation of her own, but will she survive to fulfill her destiny as The Messenger, the one who brings the Next Testament to a population desperate for freedom and salvation?

Available exclusively on Amazon Kindle and trade paperback. Check it out.

Scripting a book trailer.

A novel contains reams of material. Distilling all that into a movie-style trailer took some major thought. I think I have what will work best, introducing the audience to the story and the major conflict.

LQkl3yInQQqJVWBvOJlr+gThe key is to tell enough without telling too much. Not an easy task. A great production team is ready to bring this script to the screen. I’ll post more about the process, and of course, the final video.

How the book began…

The following is a short video, showing how I sketched out an idea for a story, the very beginning. It evolved into my novel to be released in October 2019, titled, The Next Testament.

I usually start with a title. Everything points in that direction. From there, I start sketching out some of the big concepts and action that will take place. Then it’s characters. More vids to follow, showing the details of the process in short form. Stay tuned.

Dark Currents, book trailer video

Dark Currents is the title of my next novel. It’s a thriller set on my favorite island of Aruba. Here’s the video trailer for the book.

A little scary, very intriguing, with enough twists to keep you reading to the very last page. San Nicolaas Police Chief Jules Calenda, who you met in my novels An Island Away and Under A Blue Flag figures in the story, but there’s a lot more to it than that. Suffice it to say, two people go snorkeling, one comes back, or did they? Dark Currents will be released on 26 June 2012. You can pre-order the paper version from Amazon.com or get the Kindle version on the 26th. Enjoy the story!
