Last week I made my tenth book trailer for one of my MOST anticipated 2016 books
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi!
Go to my Book Trailer Page with all the links to all my trailers.
The book is atmospheric of Hades and Persephone but with Indian mythology. The moment I saw it had Indian mythology I knew I had to have it.
I actually had been wanting to make a trailer for this book for quite some time but had to wait for the cover to be revealed. Isn’t it gorgeous?
To be honest, I searched YouTube and Vimeo for footage to use and all that I seemed to find were Indian weddings. Some clips of that I did use, but I needed more.
I ALWAYS ask the authors if they have Pinterest boards (Here is the The Star-Touched Queen’s Board). When I’ve never read the book (which has been the case for all my trailers except Six of Crows) I really need to get a good handle on what book is like. Whether it’s the feel, the look, the characters, the music, the inspirations, etc.
I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE THIS VIDEO WITHOUT ROSHANI’S HELP!
Roshani is probably one of the sweetest authors I’ve ever chatted with on Twitter. I had lots of questions for her like song suggestions, movie clips, and even pronunciation of places. She was extremely helpful.
It took me about a week to make this video and I can’t wait for the book to release! May 3, 2016!!!!
