The Book Trailer

Wednesday, October 12, 2011


There are so many ways to make a book trailer, and I spent a lot of time thinking about You Are My Only—asking myself how best to package this story of two young women who must find their ways back home.  In the end I decided not to package it at all.  I chose, instead, to sit in my office on a rainy day and to let the book speak for itself.  I chose as well to share some of the words that some of you have given back to me—the greatest gift, by far, of all.

The trailer can be found here or by clicking the arrow above.  To join in the YAMO treasure hunt, go here.

I have treasured every single one of your notes and posts.  I have benefited hugely from your enthusiasm.  Because of you, I live my quiet writer life knowing this:  stories make their way to the right readers.

Great thanks to my husband, Bill, who turned the camera on and then sat with me during this rainy day to ease the in and out of things.

The trailer looks great! I couldn't get it to load on your blog, but the link to YouTube worked.

Hi Sarah, and thanks so much for this comment. The link is actually in the body of the blog — and not embedded behind the trailer image. I know. I'm just too confusing for my own good. :) Thanks for your words in the trailer itself!
