For your viewing pleasure, the book trailer for Never Gone.

In a future post, I'll share a bit about how I built it from the script up, and explain some of the technical aspects of how this was created.

HUGE thanks go to my husband, who was able to take my rather static concept and make it sing!

Let me know what you think. Did this pique your interest in the book?

    1. Thanks, Patti! I found an amazing composer who offers creative commons attribution license use of film music bits. He has hundreds to chose from on his site. I highly recommend his work to everyone: Kevin MacLeod, imcompetech.com.

    1. So many trailers are vague, aren't they? I tried to cover the main story arc and yet not go on too long. Glad you like it!

    1. It took me three days to pick the music. The composer Kevin MacLeod has SO MUCH good stuff to choose from. Attribution license, so it's free. You just list him in the credits.
