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.

The story world begun…

Here’s another short vlog from my process of creating the story world of my novel, The Next Testament. The story is set in an alternative near future dystopia. But how did we get there?

An insane civil war that left the country shattered.

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.

Impromptu Book Signing, Aruba

Rita and her husband have read all my books, including the latest, Dark Currents. Naturally, they’re big fans of Aruba, too, and happened to be on the island last week. Since they toted Dark Currents all the way from Connecticut, it was time for an impromptu book signing at Scott’s Brats, one of my favorite joints on Palm Beach.

People are always smiling when they’re in Aruba. The island has that effect on you. So does a good book! Enjoy the reading.
