The book trailer for Private Arrangements is up at YouTube.

And it actually tells the beginning of the story, a condensed version of the first scene of confrontation, just beyond what is in the excerpt.

Gratitude and acknowledgments go out to Jane of Dear Author, whose ROTFL video reviews for The Courtesan’s Daughter by Claudia Dain inspired me to make one for myself; to Diana Holquist, for her timely article, “The Down and Dirty Guide to Making Your Own Book Promo Videos” in the February issue of the Romance Writer’s Report, which provided very helpful resources; and to the wizards behind Windows Movie Maker, the easiest, most intuitive software I have ever come across.

I had tons of fun making this. I think I’m in the wrong line of work. Writing books makes me tired and haggardly, this makes me feel so young and hip. :-)

Hope you enjoy.

    Brava! Very good!

    Although I suspect that making You Tube Videos would be tiring too, if you spent as much time and effort on it s you do on your writing.

    When I saw the paper dolls I wasn’t expecting to like it. Instead, I loved it! Very clever–and well done!

    I love the chapter, too! Especially the last part about how there were no blonde paper doll men to be found. And it sets up the story of Private Arrangements perfectly. Love too her swear bubbles. LOL

    Dude! I totally have those paper dolls!

    You know there’s a Pride and Prejudice board game too?
