It seems that if you save all your news to release at once, you're guaranteed to get a fantastic post.
Secondly, last spring I partnered with the Italian film-maker Anna Lerario, who had just finished filming a documentary about Cangrande. She asked permission to use my title and link her film to my novel. After seeing the film, I said an enthusiastic yes. I even penned the copy for the English translation of the film, now entitled Cangrande della Scala - The Master Of Verona. The film screened this month at the Venice Film Festival, and is generating a huge amount of buzz - so much so that Anna and I are releasing a book/DVD special edition of The Master Of Verona early next year, to be sold exclusively in Italy.
As a "thank you" to me, Anna took her footage and crafted a fantastic book trailer for the Star-Cross'd series. I'm truly overwhelmed. It's just lovely - feel free to watch it.
But to watch it, you have to check out Sordelet Ink's new Kickstarter campaign! We're starting production of the Star-Cross'd audiobooks next month, and we need some help with the production costs. For all the glamour of our stories, we're still just a scrppy two-man company trying to bring those stories to you. It's a very small campaign - just $5,000. And there are plenty of treats in store for people who donate - including advance copies of The Prince's Doom and one of those special edition DVD-book combos of The Master Of Verona I mentioned earlier! (See how it all comes together?)
So click on the link below, watch the Star-Cross'd book trailer, and then consider tossing a few dollars into the kitty so that we can give these books a voice!
