I don't think anyone has been chomping at the bit for my next blog post, and I can almost guarantee no one has lost sleep over not reading my weekly ramblings. Yet, I still feel the need to apologize. I've been busy with a number of things--getting SPARK ready to go out on submission, working on my WIP, and oh yeah . . . real life (this part is only going to get worse--soccer season starts up in a couple of weeks! Blech!).
I know writing a weekly post doesn't take much time, but when you have no clue what to write, it can suck up quite a bit of that precious commodity--I can't even tell you how often I've sit and stared at a blank "new post" box here on blogger, or how many times I've written something and then changed my mind and deleted it.
However, just because I haven't posted anything in a month (gulp!), doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about my blog. I'd like to change things up around here. And I'm NOT referring to the layout (holy potatoes, that was a nightmare). I'm trying to come up with some kind of themed, weekly schedule to keep me on task. I'll post more about this at a later time, but for now, I'd like to share with you one of the things I have been working on: a book trailer for SPARK.
I created it with the help of Microsoft Movie Maker, which was so simple to use. The hardest part for me was finding the right photos (we're talking hours and hours of searching through thousands of photos), but in the end I think it was worth it. For an amateur, I don't think it's half bad ;o) So, without further adieu, I give you the trailer for my novel, SPARK.
