I read that Nick used him so I went straight to his site, and after I watched your trailer the second time, I noticed that you had also used his music. It took over an hour of listeneing to his stuff but I found one that worked really well. My book is about a boy who is terminally ill with cancer so it had to be on the lighter side and ironically I found a song called 'happy boy end theme'... yikes, anyway, it worked and I just need good copies of the pages and have my brother edit the text to make sure it is relevent and catchy :) Then it will be ready to go! It's only 54 sec but I think for a picture book, I don't need much more :)

I am currently reading Nicks ebook on writing a proposal. I have not moved forward with writing my entire life because I did not know 'how' to get started. I am so grateful for getting hooked up with his page. I am not even sure how I did now, but I started a new book yesterday and I am so excited to learn that I don't have to finish it before I send it out! To think I wasted all these years just living! haha!

I always said I would grow up and be a writer, I am now wondering when I will grow up!  ;D

Your book sounds really interesting, MJB. And I think roughly a minute is great for a book trailer - enough time to get people hooked!

Anyway, I think all that living makes you a better writer  :)

As for me, I'll never grow up  :D

I would like to thank you starting this thread.

After reading it, I found a local podcaster's support group in the Boulder/Denver area.
We are going to have a meetup in one of their studios in just a few weeks.
In addition to trailers, I would like to learn to create podcasts of me reading my stories
(I might as well take advantage of almost 50 years on stage.)

Thanks again.

Yours,

... Jim
