On the Trail

Although my new book, "The Blackhouse", will not be out until February, I have been spending the last week working on the script for the book trailer.

I know that there are varying schools of thought on the value, or otherwise, of the book trailer (an oft discussed subject on this blog), but the statistics are interesting. They were explored in a recent article in the New York Times, which will make useful reading for anyone considering making one: http://feeds.nytimes.com/click.phdo?i=ff935726c5916f8ae9cb41d35b2d28b3

But in reading the article, I followed a link to one of the most successful book trailers around. I was seduced by it's simplicity, its humor and it's truth. And I would love to share it with readers of TM4M...

When I watched this video I realized that I am Dennis Cass in drag. This story has been adapted from my actual life.
