Hollywood is not in danger of me taking it by storm, but I did have fun creating this book trailer for my latest installment in the Beachcomber Investigations series, Beachcomber Danger. The dramatic opening, the music and the credits at the end are all part of iMovie’s “Hollywood” treatment.
Hint: The book is better than the movie!
Let me know what you think of the trailer. (Myren, my chauffeur, has of course weighed in. He thinks I’m hopeless and have nerve even referencing Hollywood in the same sentence as my book trailer.) (I reminded Myren which side of his bread is buttered and by whom.)
Myren aside, take a look and leave a comment. It would be much appreciated.
I confess, I am an audiobook-o-phile. I would walk around with headphones on listening to stories all day if it didn’t cause me to run into walls and/or telephone poles. When I was a kid, my mother used to tell me about how when she was a kid they listened to shows like The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet and Dick Tracy on the radio. I used to think that compared to watching television, listening to the radio seemed lame. I actually felt sorry for my parents having to listen to The Adventures of Superman over the radio.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
Now I know how powerful listening to a story acted out can be. You’re forced to immerse yourself and picture the scenes in your head, creating your own intimate world connected only by the voices as you listen.
Face it, I’m hooked.
So naturally, I wanted to create an audiobook from one of my stories for the Christmas season. I’m working on producing the audio version of Let It Snow and auditioning narrators right now.
Here’s one of the front-runners. Let me know what you think!
This is the first audiobook I’ve done in a long while, but I did create a couple a while ago. If you’re into audiobooks and romantic suspense with loads of action, then you should try The Hot Shots available at Amazon.
Or if you’re partial to romantic comedy with a bit of action and suspense, try The Throwbacks, also available at Amazon.
Consider this my personal invitation to hook you on audio–if you’re not already gung-ho!
Only 3 weeks late with my latest weigh-in and extreme diet pulse check! It’s not that I didn’t want to report in unless I’d made progress–although that might be
a darn good reason one reason–but I’ve been away on summer vacations–that’s right–more than one vacation! Unless you count a writing conference as work related. But I don’t because it was too much fun to be called work. Don’t tell the IRS.
The heat wave has slowed down my exercise plan, but not stopped it all together if you count swimming ten feet towards a raft before turning around. It was further from shore than it looked at first and I decided not to risk drowning in the name of exercise–in spite of Myren’s unflagging encouragement for me to swim on.
Today I weighed one whole pound less than I did 4 weeks ago. That’s
pretty pathetic for a diet not bad considering the aforementioned vacations.
Now I’m busy eating next to nothing to make up for lost time and Myren, my chauffeur is very
grumpy troubled about this. Must be his concern for my health or he’s starving.
In an effort to eat healthy I’m
relegated committed to eating healthy foods like this truly yummy recipe. I promised you a recipe and here it is.
1 cup fully cooked black beans, drained
1 large or 2 small tomatoes, diced
1 large avocado, diced
¼ cip a purple onion, finely chopped
The juice of one lemon
2 Tblsp Finely chopped cilantro
Sea salt and black pepper (to taste)
Corn Tortillas, deep fried
Simple! Even Myren could whip up this dish.
Please share any favorite recipes you have–even if they’re not for diets. I’ll be sharing a very SPECIAL recipe in my upcoming holiday romance novel, Holiday Affair. More on that later…
