Seeing – and Hearing – My Characters in Action

September 24, 2007 | Better than chocolate,News

Bond of Blood’s book video just went up at my website today! Whoopeeee!

What is it about a book video? I know they’re supposed to make readers want to buy the book – a very kewl idea! – but why didn’t anybody mention they also make the whole story look different to the author? Hey, it’s my story, I’m supposed to know all about it, aren’t I? But when it comes alive on the screen, it’s like meeting my characters in the flesh for the first time all over again – just like the first time I held a printed copy of the book in my hand!

Better than chocolate.

The other thing nobody mentioned – at least not to yours truly – is how much of a difference the music makes to each book video. For example, The Northern Devil’s music is very “Hollywood dramatic.” It suits a story about dark secrets, a cross-country train race in the dead of winter, and two very stubborn people battling each other for love.

The Irish Devil’s music evokes Ireland – and the Wild West’s challenges.

Bond of Blood? Its music is very, very Spanish, filled with guitars and hand claps beating out the dangerous, sensual rhythms.

All very different – and all a fresh introduction to my books.
